Mr. Lekakis is what you could to refer as a straight savage. His class is full of horrible puns, but hey, they get the job done. His lessons are somewhat informative, but be prepared to teach yourself at times. His tests aren't too hard, just study and be prepared. Unfortunately, hes slow on giving you back your marks. Overall, he's a caring teacher and an awesome guy! 10/10 - IGN

He's an okay teacher. He knows his stuff about econ except his tests are difficult and you never get your marks on time. =( Overall, he's an okay teacher.

His homework and assignments are not difficult but the assignment questions seldom appear on tests. His lectures contain a lot of hesitation but can be very informative (Note: discussions often go too indepth and off-topic). Lekakis has a very vast knowledge on economics, one of the teacher's strong points. He makes puns and jokes in class which are funny because it usually follows sarcastic laughter from the class. Nice guy, but not easy to get your marked assignments.

He's HILARIOUS. He has an amazing talent for puns. he's a really lazy teacher, his tests are just photocopies of the worksheets, and he takes forever to mark and return tests. Probably not the ideal t

For some reason, this teacher doesn't hand back your assignments very often. He tends to pause a lot during his speaking. But other than that, he's really laid-back and nice. His jokes are hard to get, but are often quite funny. :)

He does not teach you but rather teaches you to teach yourself. or else you will fail. but he makes the time pass really fast. enjoyed classes a ton.

I wish for just ONE of our tests or assignments back. He won't do marks until after the deadline. Oh and he's nice but it's only to the students who either talk about sports or are in the Ivy League.

Make sure you study Macro econ on your own, cause you'll prolly start it a week b4 the ap exam. Other than that very easy to learn from. Post some of his jokes here so we can see if he reuses them every year lol.
