I had Professor Clements in lecture and lab and he is great! He's new to lecturing, but explained everything very well and gave a lot of homework to study to help us understand a very hard subject. He curved grades and gave bonuses. He is pretty laid back and did what he could to help us to do well, and he made a study sheet for the lab practicum.
I took Professor Powell for English 101H and I really enjoyed her! It was a lot of work and essays, but overall she helped me to not be scared of writing essays anymore and she made the whole process a lot easier to break down and approach. She gives good criticism and is very caring and laid back. Sometimes her writing can be hard to read. Just be ready to put in the work if you take her.
Professor Kirton's lectures are nightmares. His arrogance, tangents, and lethargy will make you want to drop your major and get as far away from this school as possible. He is the worst professor I have had at University of Toronto, which is really saying something. Do not take his class!
I had Professor Maryam's class three years ago. I started out with FR 101 not caring much, but she inspired me to get more out of the class. Fast forward to 2019 and I am teaching English in France, thanks to her recommendations and me wanting to immerse myself. People always compliment my skill level anywhere French speaking and they don't believe I am American. Merci Maryam!
Prof. Sydlansky's class was one of the hardest I have ever had because of the type of professor he is. During lectures, he doesn't talk about the right topics. He is always losing track of his grading. I never missed a single assignment and still got a low grade. He even admitted that he never really read our work. Avoid him!!
With Professor Steinberg you basically have to teach yourself, which wouldn't be a problem in a high-level math course, but for 101 it was an issue. He doesn't go over the content until after weekly quizzes, he does not teach, and dances around questions and does not properly answer them. The exams are very rarely like the homework. Don't waste your time taking him.
Prof Gunton is a wonderful and approachable guy who has lots of ideas and solutions. Physics was never a strong suit for me but I had to take this course ad it was required for my program. With Prof Gunton's help I did better in this class than I have ever done previously! Just stay on top of the workload and it will be an easy A.
Prof Frankel is a remarkable teacher. She is lenient during class and very caring. We always ended class early when I took her in the summer. We watched a movie that related to the play we had to read and we even watched some funny SNL youtube videos. The tests were just timed essays, which pretty much lasted the whole 3 hours of class time.
I had Professor Keyworth's winter mini online class and it was ROUGH! He is a hard grader and really picky about the quality of work on your assignments. However, he did give good feedback and graded the work in a timely manner.
This is one of the easiest classes I've ever taken in my entire life. Honestly, it was pretty easy. You won't have to show up to do the work, and most work is full credit for completion. Class was pretty easy as well. She's very nice and caring. She's dedicated and compassionate, but class wasn't challenging at all.
I really loved Prof. Megan. She's an easy A if you just look at the rubrics and do the work. If you submit early and you let her proofread it, your paper will be graded an A. You can actually talk to her about anything. She will entertain questions at any time and she's pretty nice. You just have to be on time!
You will pass this class as long as you show up to lectures. Textbook isn't necessary because class is more geared towards writing down graphs and functions. He gives tons of extra credit that many students will enjoy.
I hate Prof. Sian's breakdown of the course and how he only gives a short time limit for quizzes. I'm sure there are students who complained about this in the past years, but he doesn't do anything about it. We just keep on suffering year after year.
Do not take this prof if you do not have programming experience. He simply speaks off of slides and he doesn't explain the material well at all. He barely posts grades even though we took 3 exams and 7 assignments. He posted 1 test and 3 assignment grades only. He's literally the worst!
Prof. Jenaway is an amazing prof who understands the struggles of being a student. She puts in extra effort into organizing the class and creating her lecture videos. She even allows you to create notes for quizzes. She's a pretty reasonable person. I'm actually planning to take another class with her. You can see that she likes her job as well!
Prof. O'Reilly is pretty helpful as a bio teacher. You'll have to work hard for your grade, but she goes over everything you need to pass the exams in class She also drops the lowest test score which I really appreciate. There is homework, but it isn't too difficult. There are lots of in-class questions and recitation is mandatory.
