love hate relationship with this guy. personally i am someone who rarely does homework because i dont need to and im lazy. at the start he seems like he doesnt care if u do work or not because it affects u and u only but later he makes it seem that math is the most important thing in the world. he also gives way too many lectures which is great that he is so wise but annoying because comeon yancho lets do the lesson now!!

He was a fantastic "explainer", but thats it. He was very unprofessional when adressing students and constantly used HIS own personal excuses as to why he had not finished HIS work. He preached respect and making his students feel safe yet he failed to do so at all. He called out students and compromised their right to privacy, made unecessary judgements and at times could be very condescending. This extended to all his students, not just a select few.

Best teacher I've ever had, one of the best people I know, so passionate about his work and helping his students to succeed, I looked forward to his class every day because he was just so funny and out there and easy to talk to he always helped me and I definitely got a lot out of his class-not only knowledge about math-but he taught me that I can do anything I put my mind to, no dream is too big, and no question is a stupid question. You go Yanchus, just be you. -s-l

Yancho was an awesome teacher and coach. I had him for math in grade 11 and his class was always super fun and entertaining. He made it super easy to understand everything he was teaching. He was also a great rugby coach and I still even now look up to him and hold similar views on the world that he holds. Though a little intimidating at first, he is an overall great teacher.

I had Yancho for math two years in a row. He made math class enjoyable and entertaining, something a lot of teachers aren't able to do. On top of getting me to like math and work hard in the course, we developed a very positive relationship. He is my inspiration and I hope some day to be as wise, caring and most importantly PASSIONATE as he is. What an amazing human being this man is.

Probably the best math teacher I had, even being better than Mr. Arnold.
On top of teaching the course, he also teaches what I consider valuable life lessons that a lot of teenagers lack. He gives a very realistic view on how adults think and how they act in the world and it will help the students who are willing to grow up sooner than later.
He pushes his students sometimes beyond the curriculum, which results in (for the students who do the homework, and work) very good marks.

He's a great/funny guy, but doesn't teach well. I don't feel prepared to move onto the next level in math. His math classes need more math and less fun and games.
