Mr Cholmsky is literally the best teacher I've ever had, he is so passionate about his job and you can tell he wants his students to succeed. I am not usually good at math but I ended the year with 90's because of him. LOVE YOU SIR

Cholmsky was the best teacher Ive ever had. I had him for two years and he made me love math. He seems intimidating when you don't have him and at the beginning but he is hilarious! He cares so much for his students and is always willing to help you out. make sure to do the homework every once and a while and you'll do great on his tests, there may be a few difficult questions on every test but overall they are quite fair. Ill miss you sir!!!!!!

I love him. i just really do, his classes are fun and he makes the world seem so much happier . To sum it up he basically stops time for me! Whenever im listening to him or looking at him my face always has a lingering smile. He "loves" math and he cares about your grades. He loves to joke around and make things hilarious. And remember, he's right even when he's wrong ;) Also i have no idea how old he is but, he's such a prince!

You are extremely lucky if you get cholmcholm. He seems passionate about the subject and really wants the class to undertand and succeed. Hes very helpful if you see him availability. Pay close attention to what he says, everything he says is very important and are usually clues to answers on labs or test questions. Take lots of notes. Always try to think of the next step and ask him questions. If you get on his good side he will give u extra marks and be lenient with due dates and marking.

He teaches incredibly quickly and his tests are very difficult. His labs are impossible. His avails are always full so u only get to ask 2 questions max. However, since almost everyone does poorly, he finds ways to boost marks. Without a tutor, I definitely would have failed his class

I had Cholmsks for sec 4 science and sec 5 physics. I dont no how people can say he is a hard teacher. Sec 4 science was the easiest class ever and ended up in enriched phys with him. His tests are some what hard but in the end if everyone does bad (like they often do at times) he doesnt count ANY of ur bad marks. For our june exams, he gave us 3 practice ones that would count if the marks obtained were higher than our c2 average. He is hilarious, incredibly smart and his avails really help.

Some would describe him as a bad teacher, but he is only preparing you for cegep. He has a dry sense of humour not many will understand. Classes are useless unless you attend the avails, other than that the material is actually very easy.

He's actually an amazing teacher. You can tell that he loves teaching, he makes himself available all the time to help. He expects us to be really independent so you can never really pretend to know what you're doing in his class. He's never going to go step by step to help, so I didn't like him for math. I have him for physics now and he's AMAZING. andre andre andre...

i had him for math and hated him with the biggest passion of life. no one hated him as much as i did in the history of history. but i also had him for physics. and for the begginging of the year i hated him just as much as the last. but then slowly i started to realize that there is no other teacher that is as understanding as him. i love you cholmsky! but you could've toned down the tests a little bit... they were (a bit) hard, no sir?

It's not appropriate to just teach for tests. It's important to learn the math and be able to apply to different problems. Math isn't memorization.
