As a person I don't think he comes up with the best sentences but he can recall information very well and he is very persuasive. I think he is pretty easygoing, there might even be too small an amount of assessments. He marks pretty easily too but I wouldn't know for sure because I'm bad at english

hes a good teacher! not gonna lie. he talks a lot usually about his family. He needs to stop asking people "Are U OK?" every second bcuz he makes me feel like a reject/delinquent. I am ok, and I was ok 10 minutes ago when you asked me the EXACT SAME QUESTION. Like i understand he cares but come on. He's also not personal because he tells everyone the EXACT SAME STORIES. He memorizes the videos, he knows what he's talking about. Enjoy your class while ur in it bcuz some of his stories r funny :)

great teacher who really knows his stuff and cares for his students. mr. Nemerofsky civics class is amazing, and he uses many different methods of teaching so all of his students can get the information needed to get a good mark in his class.

This is a guy who wants you to get the most out of his class. He goes beyond the syllabus often, true, but he does his best to engage students with discussions. Mr. Nemo is definitely in the top-tier of teachers at Mackenzie. His teaching style is really intermediary from high school to that of a professor in University (except you'd be lucky to find a professor who can be as one-on-one and responsive to you as a student). Not an easy marker, but a fair and (importantly) transparent one.

I think he's funny and all, but he can get pretty annoying and self-centred. He keeps stressing about how he's been teaching for 21 years and his discussions are usually off topic. And for all my years here at Mac, I gotta say the introductory questions for the social science courses are extremely unfriendly. (Keeps stressing "Be brief and specific!") Also, when the social science teachers COMBINE their efforts into a project or exam outline, he only gives himself credit (Created by D. Nemerofsky)

you cannot leave mackenzie until you have taken a class with him, he makes me laugh, even though he doesnt joke very much, he is very corny, and always talks about his endless family, which seems to occupy every city and town in ontario, quebec, and michigan,

he is very good when explaining a lesson to the class, but i find it impossible to talk to him 1 on 1, because he does not let you say even a sentence

What to say? He's tough, he is. But I managed alright in the two times I've had him. Getting a 90 in his class will be hard work. But do as he say and you'll be fine. His tests [especially his multiple-choices] are a breeze. They're far and in between too. Loves to show class videos and tell stories of his experience [which he often repeats] but he's a good guy. Wants to help everyone and it shows. He's very lenient about deadlines but not so easy on the marking. The infinite how-so's! Great, nonetheless.

Very good teacher but marks very hard and unfair, expecially tests. All he can say is "how so?", a neverending question. Also, first you notice he has many interesting stories but when he starts to repeat them, it gets very boring. And the movies... he MEMORIZED them!!!, he knows exactly when to pause and wat each person says!

Dignity and respect are his favourite words, and MAN, it SHOWS. He's a great teacher, although your essay skills will always need to be topped by the next. Prepares you for University. He knows what he's talking about, but he rambles. Still, when you get off topic, you get to learn ALOT. He knows his subjects well. GO NEMEROFSKY GO! HE LIKES THE LEAFS!!
