A very good man! Excellent teacher! So kind and always understanding, willing to work with students so that they can achieve the highest marks they can. His assignments are always handed out on well organized sheets that are easy to understand and work with. Did I mention he's great?
I had Mr. Nicolai for grade 10 history, he made the class interesting and fun. Its also worth mentioning that he is the nicest guy on the planet. I would recomend you take his class one hundred times over
Very good teacher, knows his stuff, approachable and humble. I sometimes have difficulty with his lectures, but he is still a really good teacher.
Mr. Nicolai is a human book! He is definitely meant for history and he never hesitates to help his students. He appreciates hard work and marks everyone the same without bias. I was kind of surprised with this exam, he seemed to mark it harder than his usual tests.
WHAT A SWEETHEART! an absolute angel, very easy to do well in class if you pay attention. Always gives extensions, but you feel bad taking them because he is so nice. Extremely easy to talk to, but deserves to be in a University setting.
A great teacher, as well as a good person. Very knowledgable and passionate about what he teaches; you can really tell that he's continually learning more about the various fields that he's interested in. Like the other posters said, deserves to be in a university setting.
amazing teacher! nicest person i have ever met in my life. His extensive knowledge is not only in history, but rather pretty much everything. But pretty far from strict... his class is usually uncontrolled. I just LOVE him, but we don't deserve a teacher like him. He deserves to teach at university environment for students who are mature enough to focus in class.
Biggest beauty in the league. The most interesting man in the world, he can touch the art in museums
nice guy and very smart. not the best teacher though. has no idea how to control a class.
fantastic teacher and a lovely man, nothing bad to say about him as a teacher or person, but definitely agree he belongs in a university setting - people dont respect him at all and he is a shy person so he has a hard time controlling a class. we are incredibly lucky to have him but he deserves a higher maturity level of students in my opinion!
The best teacher at Aurora. We dont even deserve him. He knows everything about everything and he is a total sweetheart. He has a quick wit and he is extremely approachable and a fantastic conversationalist. Overall, he's an amazing guy. Love him.
Absolutely brilliant. Mr.Nicolai has easily become my favorite teacher.He knows EVERYTHING about history (and other topics) and he's very down-to-earth and humble despite his genius. Very approachable and just a very sweet teacher. He marks fairly and it is easy to do well in class if you just pay attention or make sure to read the history later. His extensive knowledge, quick wit and subtle humour made his class the one i looked forward to in my day. Dr.Nicolai is a fantastic teacher and a great person :)
Very intelligent, knows everything there is to know about history. However, he belongs in a university. He can't control his class at all.
DR. NIC .... NICEST GUY AMAZING TEACHER VERY VERY HELPFUL
Hes a boss... Smartest teacher I have ever had. The guy knows everything about every type of history; ancient, medieval, modern etc.Its not like he just knows the main historic powers such as the Romans, the Greeks etc, he knows EVERYTHING about every culture and country
He's totally Santa Claus. Don't deny it. He's always going off to save the world... with the powers of history.
Dr. Nicolai is a fine lecturer, but he does not shine as a teacher. Extremely knowledgeable, but unable to keep the class under control, which is frustrating if you are trying to pay attention. I think he has excellent ratings because it is easy to get an 80 in his courses, but beware, it is very difficult to get 95 . His lectures become monotonous after a short while and he does not make the subject exciting. He is overqualified and belongs at a university. Nicknamed the Nikipedia for obvious reasons.
I wake up every morning and go to school in hopes that I will be fortunate to bask in the glorious ambiance that is Dr Nicolai - quite frankly the greatest teacher you will ever have. Period. and his shirts!
MR MARTIN L NICOLAI, Ph. D IS AMAZING!!!!!!! actually the GREATEST teacher I have EVER had. I fell reeeeaaally far behind second semester of grade 11, and he was SOOO easy-going. He let me complete work at my own pace and was ALWAYS very helpful. I will miss hearing about his 2000 years of ancestry. ROCK ON MR NICOLAI!
DR NIC IS AWESOME! He's so funny. He's so shy. When I talk to him, I feel like he's afraid of me or something. Really great teacher, very lenient, genius-smart, great guy.
Brilliant man. Almost encyclopedic knowledge on a variety of subjects. As a teacher he is a little too lenient though. Many times people will just talk through the class. Still a great guy though.
Smartest guy ever!! He told everybody in the class what their names meant, and where they came from... useless but an amazing guy!!
He is so smart! but has no control over the class and needs to stop with the ums!!!! 714 times in one class! and sometimes ur so used to them they just melt into a word! but a really nice guy lol
he is very smart, but he has no control over the class and he lectures WAY to much. It all starts to sound the same after a while
so smart!!! really nice guy and makes students less stressed out about things! great teacher!!!
great teacher! so cool and so smart. name me a smarter person. come on, i dare you! lol.
By far the most intelligent man alive, Dr. Nic is a superhero of knowledge, and if you actually give him your attention, you will benefit immensly. Approachable
Excellent teacher. Is always willing to help and is ALWAYS interested in what he is teaching. This man loves his job and that's what we need in our schools!
Absolutly brilliant. I dont think theres anything this man doesnt know. Needs to gain more control over his class though.
The smartest man that I've ever met! He's an amazing teacher and really made history interesting. I like how he teaches. Clear and understandable! You rule Dr.!
That man is like the encyclopedia of britannica...he know everything..and he is such an encredibly nice teacher!
the smartest man i've ever met. he remember everythig too. he also helps his students alot!
unbelievable knowledge base -- a very educated man -- but he's a pushover.
BEST TEACHER EVER! Sooo smart and helpful and extremelely nice!! Way to go!!!!
ALWAYS THERE to help, he will go to any extent to get u what u need. SO SMART
Excellent memory. A little monotone. Too many lectures, though interesting.
He will help you so much. He is really sweet. He is so smart.
