Mr. Zohar deserves so much recognition! I hope he reads these one day because he should know how highly his students think of him. He's just such a likeable person. I look forward to class with him. His sense of humour is great. We have such interesting class discussions, and he says really thought provoking things. The fact that I enjoy his classes so much makes me want to do better work. I have him for American History and English; I'm so lucky! Thanks Mr. Zohar!
He is the greatest teacher I have ever had. A profound influence on all his students, especially me. He helped shaped my language ability and humanity as he set me out to become a writer/novelist. I miss him.
The best teacher I ever had! Mr. Zohar gave the most amazing, thought provoking discussions and involved the whole class. His projects were AMAZING and so fun to work on! He brings out the best in his students with his guidance and lets their skills blossom. I never looked forward to class so much.
Grade 12 literature was definitely the BEST because of Mr. Zohar!
What I have to say about Barry cannot be encapsulated in 500 characters. This man tore my crappy grade 10 writing to pieces and taught me how to write properly. While all other teachers told me to settle for a boring, practical job, Barry encouraged us all to chase what we loved. For that I'll be forever thankful. His lectures are inspiring, relevant to student life, and legitimately interesting.
Thank you for being such an incredibly influential teacher. Cheers.
Zohar will make a course you dislike enjoyable and a course you like amazing. He will also somehow make you improve your skills by year's end. He doesn't hold his students' hands or treat them like children, but his classes are secretly very structure (even if they seem improvised and loose). His teaching style is a work of art.
He's an amazing teacher and knows his stuff-- although he does seem to have a slight obsession with post-colonialism. Best teacher at NT.
Overall one of the best teachers on the entire board. Every class is engaging and thoughtful. His jokes are poignant and his puns are "absolutely fantastic." Amazing!
Mr Zohar is without a doubt the best teacher I had in high school, and probably one of the best teachers in the TDSB. He has the analytical skills and articulateness of a university professor; he does not teach as much as deliver lectures. He wants to encourage the flow of ideas in his classroom: in his Gr. 12 Lit Studies class, we spent part of the year in a discussion circle. If you approach your work in his class with genuine creativity and thoughtfulness, he will reward you for it. TAKE HIM.
Great teacher; tells stories... Funny too. haha.
I love Mr. Zohar! He is extremely knowledgable and sososo passionate. Although it is said he is a hard marker I did very well and found he just wants you to truly care about your writing. AWESOME :)
AMAZING teacher and even cooler guy. Marks pretty hard but you'll learn a TON
Zohar is amazing..he's so passionate about what he does. A tough marker, but it's just because he wants to push your limits.
Best teacher I had in high school. Is knowledgeable and passionate. He's overqualified and NT is lucky to have him.
Probably the best teacher I had in the grade system. Take enriched, non-fiction, or literature if it increases your chances of getting him (plus, they're all good courses).
Mr. Zohar is an excellent teacher. He treats you with the utmost respect and has you giggling constantly at whatever's coming out of his mouth. The only truly decent English teacher at NT.
By far the best teacher at NT. His class is hands down the most enjoyable, and he treats his students maturely. Awesome sense of humour also (though sometimes unintentional)
I graduated from NT 2 years ago and still compare every professor to Mr. Zohar. He really did change my appreciation for literature. He is also an extremely passionate person. TAKE HIS CLASS!!
smartest most fascinating teacher i encountered at nt...the only class i wanted to go to...knows everything there is to know about life...TAKE HIS CLASS IF U CAN
Mr. Zohar is without a doubt the best english teacher in the school
Mr. Zohar tries too hard to be cool and he thinks his insights of students are correct and actually mean something, but they don't! He is so far from right.
