inappropriate language, disrespectful demeanor, scam artist with summer tutoring of high school students
nick is a great chem prof, probably one of the best at vanier. i took him for chemistry of food & drugs, and it's a really easy class with a lot of memorization and few calculations - its such a fun class it doesnt even feel like youre learning for school, but more like youre learning fun facts and trivia. this prof tells the best stories in class, def recommend him!!
Nick is an excellent teacher. It is my second time wth him but i don't recommend taking the "food and drugs" class. Even if he teaches very well the class is hard (too much material and you need to know everything by heart).
HE IS A LEGEND and so very helpful, do yourself a favor and take him!!! he's too funny and he's extremely smart, hands down the best at math/chem/physics.
I don't even like chemistry, and I loved his class. THAT'S how good he is.
2nd time with him, for chemistry of solutions this time. There are no words to describe how amazing he is. I wish he taught every science course I have to take because he knows EVERYTHING. Weekly quizzes, easy lab reports, colour coordinated notes, tests can be difficult but he gives 2 previous tests, the quizzes help, and if you study it shouldn't be that hard. You will be prepared for the final with him. Don't bother reading other teacher's reviews, just take this man!!!!!! BEST EVER !!!!!!!
He really prepares you for your tests and exams. He makes class fun and interesting. Take this teacher, he's a really good teacher who knows what he's talking about. He also cares about the students and tries his best to get his students to pass. One of the best teachers at Vanier!
Best teacher I ever had, he makes everything easy and explains very well. Very funny guy who cares aboit his students. Take it if you can
The best chemistry teacher I have ever had. He makes class fun and exciting. Always has hilarious jokes that make the class laugh. He explains all the material really well, always takes questions and helps you understand. His weekly quizzes are very helpful for studying and his lab reports are pretty easy to write. His tests can be difficult but he gives samples that are very similar. Overall one of the best teachers I've ever had (if not the best). Recommend him for everyone.
Had him for general chem. Okay this is hands down the best chemistry teacher I've ever had. He is funny, awesomely funny, dynamic. He knows his stuff so well. If you have questions about chemistry, physics, or calculus, he's the person that can help you. Tests were sometimes challenging but the weekly quizzes really help. If you study hard and take good notes, it's easy to do really well. He's straight to the point and he tells you exactly what he wants from you. Recommend 100%
Preregistered for gen chem. LOVE HIM. BEST TEACHER EVER. Colour coordinated notes. Great homework sheets for each topic with a quiz weekly on the homework sets. The tests can be hard, but he gives old tests that really help. Exam is so similar to tests. Really funny & makes class enjoyable. Labs are fun, & reports are basically an objective & theory. No procedure materials etc. 100% take him. You will learn & enjoy class with him. Returns tests highest to lowest grade! :O Work hard = A+ grade.
So funny and made every class so enjoyable. Hands down best science teacher ever. He made everything easy for us and he has the best notes ever! His test might be hard, but he prepares us very well for it.
I took him for chem of sol'ns and he's a very smart and fun teacher. I enjoyed going to his classes. Gives his previous tests as test practice and a quiz once a week on lab days. The tests can be tricky (especially the theory questions), but if you practice and understand the material you will for sure pass them and the course. He has office hours and helps, but will get irritated if you don't understand after a while. His notes are organized and colour-coordinated. An amazing teacher overall.
Amazing teacher THE BEST TEACHER you will never regret taking him. So funny. Had him for physical chemistry and he literally made me love physical chemistry. Love this teacher
Had him for two semesters, great teacher. Understanding, knowledgable and funny. Tests are straight forward sometimes tricky. Loves his cats. Please take him
One of the funniest teachers! If you have the opportunity to choose him, do it! He goes through topics quickly however, his tests are pretty much the same as the notes. So if you know your material, you will do very well!
Best chemistry teacher. Funny but he goes fast. Tests are easy and you always have a bonus.
Had him for General Chemistry this semester. He knows exactly what he's talking about and his "Nick's tricks" really help. His tests are tricky but he provides sample tests, he also does a weekly quiz during lab hours in the beginning of the class. He has a thing for dead babies... or dying babies. He has a quirky sense of humor and likes to yell randomly in the middle of the class to wake people up. He's the best teacher and I would recommend!!!
BEST CHEMISTRY TEACHER. TAKE HIM, YOU WON'T REGRET.
You will never find a teacher like him. He is funny and very knowledgeable. he makes class fun but his tests can be tough. I recommend him if you love and enjoy chemistry. If not, you will not like his class and find it difficult
Consider yourself lucky to get this guy as your teacher. Super funny and very helpful! His tests are pretty much straight from his notes.
Has the most unique approach to teaching so you'll definitely be entertained and actually enjoy class for a change. I recommend him 100%
I had him for general chemistry, most amazing teacher yet! His notes are clear and easy to understand. He is realistic, has a sense of humour and not over demanding in his work. I highly recommend him, he's a great teacher!!
Hes great! Highly recommend him, hes very clear, he makes class fun, he's really great. I highly recommend him. You wont be disappointed if you take him
OMG guys take this teacher!!! He is the most amazing chem teacher I've had, hands down. His notes are neat, he explains well, his exams are easy and he makes his class so interesting! He's so funny, would take him again and again and again!
AWESOME. funny, smart. he makes every class fun !
LOVE HIM!! he's one of the best teachers I've ever had, and I'm going to try to take his complementary class next semester, he's hilarious and makes chemistry so fun
Great teacher with a strange sense of humour. Knows very well his stuff and cares a lot about the students actually understanding what's going on. The only thing I didn't like is that he makes you write the lab reports by hand and he doesn't put up the grades on Omnivox until the semester is over.
Best teacher at Vanier! I would certainly take him again. His tests may be tricky at times, however, his lectures are amazing. The quizzes are supper easy as well.
Hands down, greatest chemistry teacher. Take him, you'll actually understand what you're doing and class is not at all boring. He's strict but knows his stuff and makes chemistry very entertaining. Also very helpful!
He's a bit strange but otherwise he's a great teacher. He's funny and has his ways of keeping people awake in class. He explains well, he goes over tests from earlier semesters before each test and his quizzes aren't very hard. The tests are a bit harder, though, so when he has the reviews where he goes over the earlier tests, I suggest you go to them and you take down as many notes as possible. It will most likely help you a lot.
Amazing teacher! Extremely helpful, clear, organized & knowledgable. Not to mention, he always tells funny stories & makes jokes, which makes class very interesting. Cares about his students. Quizzes are easy. Labs too. Tests can be a bit tricky, but he always gives his old tests to practice, so if you do those, you should be fine. Wants students to understand the material, not simply memorize. Overall, very chill teacher & person. If you can, you should definetely take him.
Best teacher on the face of earth ! For chem of solutions...Make sure u listen to his stories and do all the problem sets ! You are guaranteed an 80
General Chemistry - TAKE HIM he is the funniest teacher, you will want to go to his class, makes it interesting and fun! you won't regret taking this guy he's honestly a boss
He is an amazing teacher. He explains extremely well and makes chemistry so much fun! I don't think there is any chemistry teacher better than him! Take him! You definitely won't regret!
He's very knowledgeable and knows how to teach in a very clear way. You will laugh a lot in his class and master your Chemistry ! Some tests are okay, others are easy. Good luck ;)
Very good teacher. His notes are clear and colourful, his explanations and examples are clear and easy to understand and he definitly has the attention and control of his classroom. I say 2 thumbs up.
The biggest boss you've seen thus far. He's funny, keeps the attention of the whole class and he grades fair. If you're looking for an R score, you should take Nick. It's tough, but rewarding.
if you want to have FUN while studying take him!! he is hilarious and really knows what he's doing! prepares you extremely well for your tests!!! highly recommended!!
He's a great Chemistry teacher. His notes a very clear and colorful. Do not worry about his "tough tests". They're not, just study hard and ask all your questions. I got above 90% with him :)
He is a terrible teacher he isin't helpful at all and doesn't anwser questions in class while he's doing problems because "it wastes time". His tests have NOTHING to do with whats covered in class.
Great teacher! Really understanding person. You learn A LOT with him. His test are -brutal- though.
Definitely the best teacher i've had in my entire life. always there to help, tests are killers but you know your stuff in the end. never want to have anyone else for chemisry
amazing teacher, always there to make sure you understand everything that is going on. do your homework and study hard since his tests are killer
Everything about him is true. Fantastic teacher, gives extra tutorials. Funny and always ready to teach and entertain. I never missed a class. Tests are tough but he does prepare you well for them.
I love that guy! He's AMAZING like omg, hes the best. Im so glad that I took him for NYB chem...his quotes never get old! "people are sad..." "ICE IS NICE" LOL. but his tests are hard! so study hard!
Amazing teacher - one of the few who actually care, teaches with passion. He's hard at first, to get you to study, but later on it gets easier. He's hilarious and so are his tests. You'll master Chem.
i dont know about teacher but BEST TUTOR EVER!!! HE KNOWS SOOOO MUCH!!! AND SOOO FUNNY!!!!
Amazing teacher!! Very smart and funny! Do the problem sets carefully and you'll do great! Best teacher at vanier!
Amazing teacher!! Just listen in class do you homework and you'll be ok. The tests and exams arent very different from the questions in the problem set.
Amazing teacher, he's funny and very intellegent. He marks well and is very helpful, you won't regret taking this teacher.
He's a very fair teacher and gives alot of chances with things like labs. His tests really arent that bad if you study for them. Alot of people in my class i didnt expect to see get good did very well
I slept throughout his whole class, that's how easy his class was. His tests are tricky. Don't take my word for it.
He's SUPERB. but like everybody says, you gotta work hard, just do his problems cause his tests are not easy, but it is easy to get over 80 if you try hard!
Just take him. He's so good except you need to work hard. If you work really hard, trust me, you'll get over 80%
funnyy but really hard, so i have to give my honest opinion. Do not take if its your first semester because you will feel completely lost, aviod if new
He is a very good teacher, probably one of the best. He teaches using proves and facts rather than just opening the book. Great learning experience!
BEST TEACHER EVER!! Homework is exactly like the tests, and labs can be given in whenever
Nice teacher and very friendly. I cannot wait to take his class again.
He's not bad. Really funny and gets off topic really easily. Btw, his tests are most of time really tricky so you'll have to study a lot and understand absolutely everything in order to get 90+
He is a reallly nice guy and he's really funny too but his notes are horrible and most of the time he won't answer your questions. Nice guy but not really the best teacher
He's a great teacher. Only he thinks he's hilarious when he screams at the top of his lungs. Either he doesn't get that he's giving every1 a headache or he doesn't care, which makes him a bad person.
Had him as a teacher before, can't wait to have him again this semester.
funny, good, helpful, not always clear in class, knows his stuff. hard exam, fair, fair marker, could help u in calculus, physics also. he is AMAZIING
He's the best teacher if you seeking fun and knowledge at the same time.Never I found is class boring.Everyone liked the course and he's always there to help. He can also help in physics and calculus.
had him for nya and nyb. loved him. also, he would help me out in physics and other sicence course more than my own teachers. this guy just know everything.
Great teacher!! he makes learning interesting and fun. He's very down to earth and uses his hilarious stories to relate the material we're learning to everyday life.
Nicks favorite quotes, "People are sad", "Yes or no". This teacher is sooo funny and he always has some kind of hilarious story to tell
Hey Man, Mr. D is cool, funny. The best chemistry teacher I ever had. So approachable and will spend time helping you out or just go to his office for a chat. Class act, I'll never forget you sir!!!
Yells alot and shows he's tough on the outside, but on the inside he is a softy. Great Guy
Great teacher, funny and makes the class interesting. Also very loud and tests are sneaky. Gives many quizzes and make sure you watch an episode of Family Guy or the Simpsons before a test.
won't say hi to you when the semester is over. good teacher, but he needs to bite his tongue sometimes.
really good teacher although manages to scare ppl out of no where with his screaming lol funny though
Best science teacher i ever had, the only one that managed to give an interest in chemestry
All I know is that I usually skip a lot of my classes, but I never missed one of this guy's classes. You figure it out.
He's a very funny and is an interesting character but his abrasive way of teacher didn't rub off on me and as a consequence I didn't fair well at all.He is "too" hardcore if there is such a thing..
had him for NYA and NYB.... he is such a great teacher.... will take him if i have the chance.... i would say that he i one of the best teachers at vanier....just loved and enjoyed so much being in class..
Chem1: awesome teacher+very funny.His exams are pretty easy; although they can be a little tricky (ie: he mixes different topics together to form 1question).Make sure you do your homework sets and you'll be fine bc the quizzes (b4 lab) are very similar. Must write abstracts for labs (not hard, it's easier than writing a huge report).His last exam included very similar hmwkset questions and a couple from the dawson exam so try to cover all material that he suggests. Con:history pt is long..
hes an amazing teacher. i don't know what these other ppl r talking about cuz he rlly cares about his students and gives hand outs with questions that r gonna b on the quizes. hard lab marker though, boosts ur average if its low. hes rlly funny, a must take! if u check, he's always the first one for his classes to close.
Totally not true. I had him a year and a half ago and I didn't have a teacher like Mr. Deligiannis since then. He is funny and smart. One of the best at Vanier and after a couple of years you will still remember him.
These ratings..what can i say theyre totally false! He a funny guy but hes teaching methods arent good.
I agree...he spent about a month on the history of scientists and even asked all the questions about them in the exam! Tests are realy difficult, he doesnt give a dam! (HE even says it in class)... He wasted so much time, that we were crammed up in the end and we didnt understand a single thing he said! If u are going in Gen. Chem 1 do not take him! If u want to pass, take another teacher!
goodness... I this is true, he hasn't taught general chemistry for 3 years... He's a funny guy, good person and loves chalks (you'll see what I mean) lol... Anyways I think he's a bit too demanding for the historic part of chemistry. HE SPENT SO MUCH TIME SPEAKING OF THE PAST SCIENTIST... trust me ALOT OF TIME! You'll have to know what they did and explain what their discovery has helped find... Great person but not what I expected from these rating!
This guy is funny, likes cartoons and make jokes, like he wants us to suffer. I think he really wants to,cuz his tests are really hard, although his quizes are very easy. Don't trust these ratings, cuz there not for gen.chem1. He hasnt taught this course for 3 years! So I wouldn't recommend him. Get another teacher. HIs exams are awful!!!!
I do not know anyone who does not like him. Great teacher, funny and kind. The Simpsons rock, Family Guy too.
What are you guys saying, this guy is the man. Test are fair but does give you practice exams before each test.
