My writing skills at the beggining of the year were subpar at best but throughout the year he has made me a much better writer and i owe that all to his helpful tips and coherant explanations, in result to which i performed very well on the essay portion of the exam. Make the most of your time in this class, Belli is one of the best english teachers i have ever had as he is very knowlegable and is qute leniant on marks.
I'm writing this as someone who was his student, at Del, over 20 years ago -- he helped make me become a much better writer and to also tackle what reading comprehension really means. These are not easy skills to teach! Thank you sir!
sweetest man alive. santi is a beaut, he's like a father to all his students
smart and funny guy
Mr.Bellisario is one of the most amazing people I have ever encountered. Always there to help and to have a casual conservation with. I have never had more respect towards any other teacher. He actually cares about his students, and puts forth in humane amounts of effort for his students. Would do another one of his courses 100/10
Best teacher at Del by far. Amazing teacher and friend. Extremely knowledgable and eager to help you improve your writing and achieve your goals.
One of the best teachers at del
He has such a busy sechedule but he tries to help you in any way that he can. He makes English class very enjoyable and is the best teacher eve !!
Swagtino Belliswagio - what a sick beauty flow. Absolutely gorgeous. A lot of work, not very hard work though. Allows you to hand in 500 drafts of your comps which is nice. On a scale from 1-10 I'd go with 11/10 comps.
so helpful. improved my writing 100%
He's willing to help you in any way he can, but the material and the homework is al to to take in since he believes that we all have the ability to do beyond what we think we can
Very knowledgeable, and a good teacher, but a somewhat harsh marker. He seems to almost be at the rank of professor instead of just a high school teacher.
My favourite teacher at Del. BEST TEACHER EVER.
A teacher I missed once I no longer had him. Engaging and enthusiastic. Organization is key, and remember to hand in second drafts. A great man to talk to outside of class.
Articulate and cosmopolitan - exactly what the school is NOT. Santino inspired me to study literature at university and although it won't earn me much money I am nonetheless indebted to him.
Really inspired me to discover my own voice. Had diverse range of literature. Somewhat disorganized. Mostly inspiring.
Okay, but there is much work. Often this work is not marked.
Excellent teacher who does way more than he has to at Del
Excellent teacher and I am really looking forward to Rome.
Really smart guy, but really disorganized. Marks-wise, he can be tough, and very unreasonable at times, especially during exams.
Until just recently, he was probably my favorite. It finally hit me that he is very scattered, is sometimes lenient with marks and other times, uncharacteristically hard. Doesn't always make sense.
loove him! i don't understand half the things he teaches, but i can still fake it... and you can hand things in like very late or never and still get an amazing mark!
Santino is awesome. If you wanted to do well it wasn't difficult u just needed help and ya there was a lot of work if u let the whole years work pile up to right before exams .
a bit ignorant and will make you feel dumb when he is given the chance. overall he's nice but the workload is huge and he is a bit unclear and thinks everyone knows what he is talking about
Good teacher (although Eng is not my daughter's best subject) but he understands and knows the kids!!!
Amazing teacher. He's friendly, hilarious and a really easy marker.
best teacher ever, debating with him is so much fun cept for when he sends you the monarch speech when ur suppose to have the seal hunt speech.
Santino really is the best teacher at del...yes he's unorganized especially with debating but he really isn't afraid to say what he thinks and it's nice to have someone so liberal.
Bellliii - best teacher. Coolest guy, so friendly, easy to relate to! Great times at debating. Taught me alot! Only complaint is that his course feels disorganized.
Ohh good ol santino...hes a great teacher deep down, really knows his stuff...just gets really off track some times and its funny to see how he organizes his disorganization....
OMG he's the best... he taught me, then my two sisters after me, and if you get to know him, he's got a deep well of (sometimes random) info, with a (cliche) heart of gold.
Bellisario is by far my favourite teacher at del! he is so nice and good times in rome!
He's an extremely helpful and clear teacher as well as an extremely smart person.
he's a really nice teacher and a great one but he gets off topic and is really unorganized especially with debating
Bellisario is an amazing teacher and person, he talks to students like he would a friend. He's really hard though. But still an amazing teacher. Classes are actually INTERESTING
Belli is the best. Me and him are good buddies, he's always willing to help if you dont understand somethin, and his deadlines are really flexible (by about a month)
what does he think hes doing? he doesnt explain anything whatsoever
just go to Rome wit him and u will understand all. an amazin teacher
He give us 10 assignments due the next class and doesnt even explain wats on them Pretty good teacher if he explained.
A good teacher who treats teenagers like human beings.
he's a horibble teacher, and anyone who thinks he's good really has no idea what they're talking about.
i think we learned an acronym for rating teachers... but i forget
One of the best and most understanding teachers..no more postmodernism though!!
