I had Mr. Vazintaris for SBI3U from February-June 2016.
He is the most dedicated, and by far one of the best teachers in the science department.
I found his teaching style, along with connecting ideas in biology to society to be very thorough, and efficient. It becomes impossible to forget anything covering a lesson.
In addition, he will always inject some humor here and there to make class more engaging.
I would recommend him any day.
I currently have Mr.Vazintaris and sometimes he is kinda rude and harsh but he's knowledgeable and knows his stuff. He is available for extra help if you seek it and he's clear. He is strict on rules but he has a good system.
He is very bipolar. His lectures are boring. His tests focus on one little thing and the rest of the information you spent days studying is useless. His tests are all multiple choice. Doesn't test your skill at all. Not only that he doesn't let you keep the tests so you can't improve. Switch out.
He is 50/50, he tries to teach and does his job minus the nice attitude which puts people off and prevents them from obtaining the information and may find him boring at times. Otherwise, cracks jokes here. But really study hard to get great marks.
I had him for grade 11 and honestly speaking he's not easy but he is good. If you want marks only then change him but if you want to learn something that is useful, he's your guy. Plus if you are planing to do any type of biology related stuff for the future TAKE HIS CLASS!!! if you do your work and ask questions you'll be okay. he is intimidating but ask questions...i mean it if you have them ask!!
Not a helpful teacher at all..he is only in class for the sake of being there. He wouldnt do anything to help you , no answering question , one tone boring lecture. Wouldnt even let people take pictures of the notes to help study later. he is very rude and will never listen to u. Alot of my class mates were too scared to ask him any question. I had him for grade 11. he made our lives miserable. His wife is no different. If you have him pls change it. Honestly speaking, no lies!
He's a wonderful teacher, knows his science and he's quite funny. One bad thing is he's barely there afterschool for extra help, but other than that, you'll learn LOTS and enjoy it also.
hes a teacher...not an entrateiner....i think hes great, very helpful knows his stuffs and funny
This guy is really hilarious LMAO, he like picks on this one kid for the entire semester. Which was me.. but when your talking about biology, he's serious. He's a pretty good teacher, if you listentoh
He is very helpful and will surely prepare you for gr.11
In my opinion, could be replaced with a robotic arm and a computer generated voice. Very, very boring. To his credit though, he does know his stuff and is good at explaining concepts.
He is a really good teacher....people say a lodz of different stuff abt him but all of u... he is a really nice teacher...he is a tough marker though but thats ok....
i like mr.vazintaris...he may be alittle hard but hez so FUNNY!!

so far so good. this guy knows how to teach. he really explains things well. i like his style!
Mean teacher. He makes fun of students. And he thinks he's funny.
nice teacher. but bad choice of movies to show to kids. THE RED VIOLIN was a big mistake mr.v
very good teacher, always helpfull and challenging. i wish all teachers were like him.
mr.v was my art teacher for a semester!!!! He was pretty cool i guess!!!! Except for that movie he showed us THE RED VIOLIN!!! He is a great art teacher!! RIDA
the best teacher i have ever had. The most helpful: Iwill never forget him
Really funny guy! Not an incredible teacher but he gets the job done. Also an art teacher, but thankfully doesn't apply that to safety posters in science :P
he is alright, very fair, but he is an alright person
