Goes out of his way to make sure the students understand regardless of how long it takes and teaches what's important the easiest way possible. SO PASSIONATE and makes class fun and exciting. He always talks to students before and after lectures despite the 800-student lecture hall, he always gets to all corners of the room. Best prof I've ever had

The greatest prof among the likes of Haffie and Maxwell without ambiguous problems on the midterm. His jokes, emphasis on understanding and concern for students is outstanding and made me want to go to his class everyday, never skipping once. Love this guy to death, made me enjoy orgo

Nice guy and made going to 8:30 class more enjoyable. Only used textbook in lecture, I thought it would have been nice to have lecture notes to use in addition to the textbook. Short answer exams made it easy to get part marks and do well! Overall one of the friendliest and most passionate professors I have had. Made an effort to know students!

I didn't expect to enjoy organic chemistry at all, but he made it really entertaining! He definitely has a passion for the subject and you can tell through his eagerness to make people understand the material.

We had a different prof for the first half of the semester and I couldn't even listen to him speak he sounded like Eugene Levy...Then Workentin came in, and I found a new passion for heading over to my early mornin' chem class!;)

Took C273F+C283G with him a 2 years ago. Almost like the Energizer Professor. He's very interested in making sure you *learn* the material. Good teacher and nice guy overall to talk with. If you have the chance take a course with him, since he's a great lecturer. Also will drop in during the labs to check that people are doing ok.
