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.

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.

Seems great until he marks your work. Needless to say, he is a very tough marker with high expectations.

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

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.

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 =)
