I had Aivars when i was in highschool, and he teaches you the fundamentals of english. He teaches you how to write a last minute essay and still get an 80+ in Uni. He's THE best teacher i've ever had. He'll always willing to help you improve and work with you until you understand the concepts. I feel so lucky to have had him as a teacher.

Best teacher I ever had. Once you understand his skill in breaking down complex concepts into almost a sentence the class becomes amazing. One of those teachers where getting a good mark feels like something really special. First person to really inspire me to think critically. Enjoy his teaching.

I hated Aivars in grade 10 but loved him in grade 11. He knows a lot and the stuff he teaches is very useful. It's easy to get 100% on your essays if you just pay attention. He's such a funny guy beca

I'm so glad I had Aivars for English. I didn't like him at first, but I do now; turns out he really knows what he's talking about if you put in the effort to actually LISTEN. Overall, great teacher.

Not a good teacher. He is a hard marker and needs everything to be only his way. Not very helpful when needing help. Not a nice person either. All around not a good teacher.

Aivars is the best english teacher. He's really in depth and passionate. He drills proper essay structure into you and he really preps you for university. He may scare you, but it's only for the best.

To do well in his class, you have to a) agree with him, and b) write exactly how he wants. Easy to get good grades if you know how, but an annoying teacher nonetheless.

Aivars is very strange. He definitely thinks of himself very highly and above the class. It's kind of funny but sometimes annoying. I guess he's usually pretty nice though. He's just really peculiar.

I never got below a 80% in English until I met Aivars. In his class, so far I have only gotten marks between 50-60. He doesn't want you to write well, he wants you to write like he does. No creativity

Hard to figure out what he wants in an assignment at first but really knows his stuff. You learn a lot about writing technique, though not so much about the idea behind it.

I dont think hes a very good teacher. He limits your creativity a lot, and takes marks off assignments for things he didnt tell you not to do.
