Comment:
oh man this guy is the cutest little typical physicist you will ever see. he's totally adorable and you just can't hate him. To be totally honest, I went to 3 of his lectures. He made simple things confusing and left me counting down the minutes till the class ended. Cute man, but overall isn't a simple lecturer for an average physics kid like me.

he is the smartest teacher ever. he knows what he is doing. he clarifies important things with diagrams, but you have to read the text to do well.

Comment:
horribly slow speaking man. Very dull. He doesn't have note that when you take them you can go back and understand any of it. Better read the textbook if you want a good mark

He knows his stuff and he knows how to make you understand it. The pace was really good, which always helps. His portion of the exam was though tho.

A sweet guy, but I guess not a super great teacher. OBviously knows his stuff, because he's teaching, but could explain things better.

Seemed nice, but nice doesn't help teaching. Can't say I gave him a chance, only went to one of his lectures, fell asleep, never went back. He's dull, I wasn't interested in what he was teaching becasue he didn't sound it. His explanatinos seemed irrelevant. *snore*

He may know his stuff but doesnt not explain it very well, might as well skip his class, use ur time better then his class, u might learn something. Note he always wore the same jacket to class

So boring that he was hilarious. Wouldn't miss one of his lectures for the world it was so entertaining. He obviously knows his stuff. Can't say I got a lot out of it, but that man is so funny it was worth my hour every day.

The best physics prof ever. Those who think he is boring are failing to appreciate the deep and subtle beauty of physics that he can convey. His many *insightful* tangents are where I often learned the most about physics.

The smartest man at guelph, perhaps ontario. Knowledge of ALL fields of physics unsurpassed. Incredibly helpful, not only in course taught, but in any aspect of physics.

Comment:
He tried, but he is far to shy and quiet to stand in front of a class and teach. His understanding and explanations were so beyond what I could comprehend, that I got almost nothing out of his lectures. Bad prof.

Talk about dry. This guy threw me for a loop and then put me to sleep. He's eccentric, boring, and cannot teach his course material at all. If I were the university, I would seriously consider putting Bernie Nickel out to pasture. He's a good guy, though

Talk about old slow and useless. I fell asleep in his class, woke up 25 minutes later and he was on the same slide. He talks so slow by the time he's finnished his sentence you've forgot what he's talking about.

More like Bernie Einstein. He had a complicated teaching style as he liked to go off on tangents, but never-the-less he knew the material like the back of his own hand. Also has the weirdest coffee mug I've seen. Good Prof Tho.

Did not understand a word he said! He uses too many irrelevent explanations and does spend enough time on the topics that are on the quizes. Confusing to say the least
