GOOD MORNING CHILDREN!!!!
I had Nicola for Culture Through the Ages and he was amazing! His lectures are so entertaining and engaging. He teaches the history as if he's telling a story so you learn the material without noticing. He was always happy and funny and I never wanted to skip his class even though it ended late. If you have a chance to take Nicola I highly recommend, you won't regret it!

He is a great teacher! he makes the class so interesting and he's humorous, simply adds energy to the classroom. You don't buy any books with him but you CANT miss any classes because you'll miss exam material. I had to take everything down and ended up with a great grade although you don't see the class average until the end of the semester. This paragraph doesn't do him justice but he's truly the best! I want to take Italian just to have him as a teacher!

Love that teacher!! The funniest teacher I have ever had, I never want to skip his class even though it ends late. He makes the class so interesting the way he teaches it. He is super passionate about what he teaches us. I just wish I had him for every class. He interacts a lot with the students and make us feel comfortable. Recommend that teacher so much, he is my favourite teacher at dawson and also my favourite teacher I ever had.

Had him for Culture Through the Ages. Was amazing, he makes it so entertaining and he is really funny. Prepare to take notes tough and participate in class and during class discussions (right at the beginning of the semester) because it may easily lower your marks. Overall, he was lovely and really easy to talk to.

CHILDREN! I love this teacher. I had him for CTA and his class is very interesting, he is a pretty good teacher. He doesn’t write much on the board, so you have to take a lot of notes. His exams are very easy if you pay attention in class (which is hard not to, since he is so entertaining) and review for them. If you do take him as a teacher, do not forget to participate in class since discussion is worth 10%.

MADONNA MIA!
CHILDREN!!!!!!!! This guy is simply amazing. You learn without noticing because you're having fun. I have in right now my Culture through the Ages class and it's my favorite one to attend. If you study for your exams and listen in class, YOU WILL PASS!!
He'll probably put you on the spot but not it will never be in a meanly way. He's amazing. You want Mr.Martinos' class for sure!

hes funny and all but he doesn't teach you what he expects of you. He'll tell you what is incorrect but not what is correct, or what you can do to fix anything. Short essay questions, long essay questions, he doesn't really tell you what he wants.

Very fun teacher to have, it is fun to have conversations with him after class as well. It's very easy to get a good mark in that class if you attend and read the assigned chapters in the book.

Had him for languages in the community. Truthfully, the class has very little point, but Nicola himself is super fun and approachable and he makes the class funny and amusing. I enjoyed the class even though i didn't see the point to it.

For sure, he's a funny teacher and he doesn't seem very strict in class... However, he's a hard marker when it comes to assignments, quizzes, and exams (Italian or Languages in the community). I find that he doesn't explain well the grammar, especially in Italian 2 which is crucial in a language course. We don't have any theory. Plus, we never learn any vocabulary which makes it hard for us to understand the quizzes (he uses a lot of words we don't know).
