If you'll have him for grade 11 may god help you.He is able to spent an entire class for an easy question and yet still not be able to found the correct answer.Lack of teaching skills.The only thing you'll improve is trying to stay awake during a his class.

His accent is a little hard to understand but other than that he is solid. Ask lots of questions and he will be happy to help. Loved him as a personality in the school. Probably the most easy going teacher in the maths department. Super chill if you get to know him and I suggest you do. He will definitely take your side of things in any altercation you may have (Personal experience). Fair warning though, math at AY is pretty hard so don't just blame him if you dont do well.

If you go to him for help, he'll help you. He's a nice guy, but I remember REALLY hating his class. Sometimes he would get confused as he's explaining a concept and confuse the rest of the class. Boring voice.

He's lowkey hilarious with his hidden sarcasm but honestly I learned nothing from him. His voice put me to sleep, lessons never really made sense and he's obsessed with his water bottle. 90% of the class ended up with an average in the 60s

He is really nice and funny (in a totally lame way). I really like him as a person, and he is easily approachable. He is really reasonable with problems. However, he talks in this monotone voice that would do any lullaby justice. I slept through many of his classes. Never did worse in math, EVER.

I don't understand the hate for Mr. Girmay. He is a great math teacher. His lessons can be a bit dry but if you focus during classes and do your homework, you are fine.

Not a very hard teacher. This doesnt mean dont pay attention. If you dont pay attention or do your work you're likely to be one of the people who blames the teacher instead of yourself. He is very knowledgable and fair.
