One of my favorite teachers from the school. Very helpful and tries to be engaging with his lessons. He tends to be quite caring and easy going, but isn't afraid to lay down the law for troublemakers.

Passionate, intelligent, unafraid to talk about serious things, funny. One of the few teachers who can talk for 80 minutes and make it interesting. He demands respect - don't be late to his class and don't text. But if you're lucky enough to get Arruda as your teacher, you should really listen to what he has to say.

Fantastic prof! Any teacher that is as passionate about the subject as Tony is, will keep the class attention engaged and keep them interested in the subject as well. Hope to see him at VIU more often, but am glad that there is a teacher like this in a high school :)

A totally passionate teacher. Loves students to express their opinion. Lots of group discussions -- he knows what to say to keep them going. Challenges students to view things from all perspectives. I thoroughly enjoyed his class! From other students, I've found he's someone you either love or hate.

We we had a hard time getting along. I took 2 classes of his and fought with him the entire time and that is why I like him so much. His goal is to find passion within students.

He makes Socials fun because he talks about things instead of assigning things. I can't remember a thing by writing it down, I have to talk about it. Student Anonomus

Mr Arruda is definitely not as bad as you all make him out to be. He was always kind and helpful to me in class. he gives lots of work, but he's a teacher.
