He's very funny and very clear on his explanation. You learn everything in his class and he makes English fun. His tests are quite long but you need to have good time management if you want to succeed in his class. Overall, he's a very good teacher, but a really strict on marking and dress code.
Amazing teacher, has his moments which make you laugh a lot. Great person too
Mr. Marando is an awesome teacher. Whenever you need clarification he is the person to go to for help. He also tries too relate the unit to real life experiences when reading Shakespeare. Although he is a hard marker. Which I think will benefit a student too prepare them for the rest of highschool and further on. Also where your uniform because sometimes he does uniform checks. Overall Mr. Marando is an awesome teacher.
Really smart, really hard marker. Nobody can deny that he's an amazing teacher and that you will come out of his class leaning a lot and prepared for university (i had him for 12U). He is articulate, witty, and insightful. RIP all of his students' grades though.
He was an amazing teacher and understood my social anxiety and didn't take marks off for just presenting infront of him
best teacher I have ever had, he is a tough marker but he wants you to do your best.

Really great teacher. I had him for two years - grades 10 and 12.
Seems great until he marks your work. Needless to say, he is a very tough marker with high expectations.
lmfaoo! one of the best english teachers i ever had. really funny good to joke with.
He is a really good teacher and you can learn a lot from him. BUT he is the hardest marker I have ever had! He docks marks for anything and everything that might be wrong. When I got my first test back I went into shock...
The truth is he's a really good teacher. He knows what he's doing. But sometimes I think he's A REALLY hard marker. I got bad marks on my essays for minimal things and I think that's what made me not like him. But he is a good teacher and he's at times funny
Well, he was a very intersting teacher. At times he could be very boring but I like him. Sometimes his jokes are weird, but sometimes they are FUNNY!!!! He is really nice though.
He teaches you alot. You might not like him because he is a tough marker, but he knows his stuff, and prepares you alot. I would love to have him as a teacher again, I learnt so much in his class, and he made me look at English in a different way.
One of the best teachers I've had in a long time. Yes, he is a hard marker, but if you study in his class, you'll do well. He can be a funny guy with some of the wackiest stories to tell, and he is immoderately knowledgeable in English. No one can beat him. Seriously. You may hear some bad things about him, but stay on his good side (he's getting older, ya know!) and you'll love him.
cool teacher, likes to talk about things for a loooooong time, but we learned alot. he marks really tough, but in the long run, it helped.
If you ask around, you might hear some really negative things about Mr. Marando, but really, he's not that bad! He's a hard marker but not overly hard, and he really knows and loves English and all the other stuff that comes with it. Tip: if you're in his class, participate and answer his questions, even if it seems intimidating. It'll make your life easier in his class =)
ABSOLOUTLEY AMAZING TEACHER. not only did he make me understand novels in another way he was always there to talk to when a student needed it. very hard marker but very excellent teacher.
he gave us a book with one week left in school and we have to write an essay on it but other than that hes a good teacher and sometimes he was pretty funny(i've got fire in the belly)
Greatest teacher alive...... love him! so kool but hard, but he made learning fun!
he was a very boring english teacher... ive had him and mr buntings english classes, and compaired to mr bunting he is very boring.
An all-around good guy. I was disappointed at the amount of people who didn't understand his wit.
cool teacher.. used to let me charge my phone in class :D lol.. with i had him again for english
Marando is the nicest teacher. I know I can always count on him about anything. He is so understanding and always there. I'm going to miss him so much! =(
Mr. Marando is a great english teacher, at first I did not like him but then we got this student teacher and now I want him back!!!! COME BACK!!!
hehehe....im not sure if grammar correction should be worth as much in visual basic classes.....but then again english is the language of programming ....
