I hardly have any likes or hates towards teachers, but after having him as an art teacher last semester, I didn't have good impression on him and didn't choose any courses he teaches for next year since I didn't want to be in his class again. He doesn't teach us anything, which would obviously never improve our art skills- merely gives us new assignments and that's it. Have no idea what he expects from us. Also gives poor marks to students he doesn't really like. I'm pretty objective right now.
Not gonna lie I never actually had Soloway as a teacher so my ratings are fake lol, but he's my mountain biking coach now in Grade 12, and I love him! He was also my coach in grades 10 and 11; funny guy who's really chill and truly cares about the team. I feel like he really wants to see his bikers do well on the team and have fun, and he's dedicated for sure. I don't know about teaching but I loved him as a coach!
Had him for art this semester. Doesn't care, doesn't help, really lazy. All he does is speak in Japanese and make 70s references. If he is your teacher, drop his class immediately. He was gone for 3 weeks and I miss the supply teacher. Because the supply teacher actually helped.
he doesn't even teach, he just walks around making opinionated remarks about peoples' art.. also he tries to convince students of his own personal politics in class.. he said at the beginning of the year, "Im going to try and make every class that i can" and ended up missing at least one day a weak, aside from religious holidays.. he's irresponsible and overall not fit to be a teacher
cool teacher if u get in his class dont switch out hes the best at rhhs
Probably the most lazy teacher you will ever meet.
Recieves a lot of hate, but really is just better at teaching other subjects
He doesn't teach at all. He doesn't really care if you do homework or not. He Is really chill but he takes forever to mark test
the entire course can be found in the geography textbook you don't even have to listen in class
Mr.soloway...by far the worst teacher i've ever had. He is my art "teacher", but he really isn't good at it. If you want to ask a question about your work or some clarification, his usual responses r i don't want to talk to you, or im too busy. He asks people in the middle of class to buy him something in the cafteria (thank god he gives us the money). Also he gets really mad if you eat food at class when he eats food at his desk all the time! If ur on his bad side, he will never like you...
Mr. Soloway is a really nice teacher. He is funny and sometimes makes bad jokes and no-one really gets some of his references but he is old and we should respect that, he was really helpful to me with my perspective assignment and cared about helping me find ways to improve. Thanks for a great semester!
From our meeting and from what my child has told me about him, this man does not care about his students. He seemed to be very careless.
He Thinks He's Funny, jokes so bad they are good.
Decent teacher, tries hard to reach students and make material interesting for them.
Expresses himself well in communicating concerns and follows through with communication in a timely manner.
Fair, friendly cares deeply about students success.
Once, I didn't have my sketchbook out, and he walked right past me without caring. Approximately 2 times a day, because he's too lazy to get up out of his chair (unless he wants to talk to students about old films).
Forces us to use arbitrarily stupid guidelines in certain assignments.
You will rue the day when you didn't switch out of his class.
had him for art
1. when students aren't working, he doesn't do anything about it
2. Sits at his desk either surfing the web or watching old animated movies that are of no relevance
3. whenever students ask him for help, he goes off on a tangent and wastes their time
4. forces us to do things a normal art teacher does not do
5. stuck in the past, thinks he's cool/funny by using references that no one gets
6. never helps students
all in all, SWITCH OUT IMMEDIATELY when you get him
He doesn't even try to mark fairly. He just gives everyone a 3 and calls it a day. It's like he doesn't know how to mark.
Laziest teacher in the school.
I only had him for Art. He's somewhat knowledgeable. He doesn't give students that much creative freedom either.
He can't control the class, he doesn't teach much either, and favors females. He also barely gives feedback voluntarily, meaning you have to go to his desk and ask, and just lounges around for most of the time.
If you get him for Art, switch out for the other teacher(s) ASAP, unless you're just there to get an easy credit.
He goes out of his way to not help students, and has worse attendance than most students.
Doesn't teach, make him think you're smart, achieve 90, move on.
Can't control the class, making the classroom not suitable for learning. Needs to control his anger, rather than taking it out on his students. Damnit, have some control over the class.
This teacher execpts everyone to know everything there doing, he will help people, but will not explan how. Has an anger problem which he should take care of.
he's very "slow", has anger problems and needs to claim down.
