Mr. Halkidas is a nice guy, but mumbles a lot. He is very knowledgeable, but does not clarify some questions that you may ask.

He's a great person, and is very relaxed and easygoing around students. His lessons are rather boring however, as he uses a lot of powerpoint and youtube, without a lot of in-depth explanation and simplification. He also has a tendency to return handed in assignments rather late, but that's not a big deal in my opinion.

Mr.Halkidas is a great person, with a lot of knowledge, but he mostly teaches through powerpoints. I don't really know if I should blame it on my class or him, but it seems we're doing most of the work teaching ourselves for the exams (we don't get stuff done). As long as the class is quiet (unlike mine) and pays attention (unlike mine), you'll really enjoy his classes. He's also willing to stay after school to help you out.

Amazing teacher. Had him for Grade 9 Academic Science. He was funny, good at teaching, and really knew what he was doing.

At first i thought he was going to be a bad teacher because he mumbled a lot at first and seemed to not know much, but as the semester progressed, he did not mumble again after the first 2 days and he taught use what we needed to know. Nothing more, nothing less. He acknowledges that he makes mistakes and will correct them if pointed out and is generally very easy to get along with. He does not seem to favor any students nor dislike any. The only con is that he takes forever to mark things.

He's a really great teacher. The best thing about him is that he's able to admit mistakes that most other teachers are incapable of doing. If he marks something wrong on your test, he encourages you to show him.

I really don't like this teacher. He favours students and at the same time, he is very single-minded. His test questions are stupid and he makes you copy notes all day.
