Ruthless but awesome. I hated him in PE in grade 10 but grew a huge appreciation for him in grade 12 history. He taught me a valuable lesson to never judge history with modern eyes. Very knowledgeable.

It's hard to remember back to grade 8 Social Studies but in a nutshell - I thought he was a merciless bastard when it came to lates/overdues but a darn good teacher.

I am a graduate from 2006, and I have to say that Mr. Tarwitz left a lasting impression. He is a strict teacher, but let me tell you how that prepares you for the real world. Complaining he doesn't let you hand in assignments late and doesnt want you to be late for class - what do you think happens when in real life? You think your boss is going to let you hand stuff in whenever you want and show up when you feel like it? Nope! He's an excellent teacher and I am very grateful to have had him.

Extremely strict, not flexible at all, but doubtless is devoted to his subject and actually knows what he's talking about.

He's alright...but the jokes are bad! He likes my class, but is really mean to the other band class, and that is incredibly unfair. Also, AGH! DON'T RUN SO FREAKING MUCH!!

For some reason few people like him, but he is extremely funny, very amiable, and a knowledgeable teacher. Sure, he marks fairly strict, but come on, this isn't kindergarten anymore.
