In my 4 years at Glen, I've had him for 3 years, for 3 different subjects. He is honestly the best teacher that I have ever had. He actually cares about his students, and if there is one teacher I am coming back to visit, it's him. He is crystal clear with everything that he teaches and has honestly positively impacted my life.
Mr. Vitols is the best teacher I've ever had. Not only does he teach with depth and clarity, he's open to student opinions & discussion and is willing to admit to his mistakes. But I think what sets him aside from other teachers is the way he actually cares about his students, which is EXTREMELY rare and much needed at Glen. As a mentally ill student, I've never felt like a teacher was rooting for me like this - and it paid off! You'll love his classes and will never feel looked down on by him.
easy teacher but knowledgeable
Mr. Vitols is absolutely my favourite teacher this year. I have Grade 10 history with him and he is one of the most considerate teachers I have ever had. He is super sweet and knowledgeable in so many departments. He encourages us to discuss current events and share our opinion with each other to help our critical thinking and open-mindedness. He is amazing and you are so blessed if you are placed in his class!
the best teacher in glenforest! encourages class discussion on important topics and goes beyond textbook learning. probably my favourite teacher this year. always there to talk and help with a bunch of different subjects!
He is what Ib teachers should be like. He proposes critical thinking like no other teacher I have ever had.
Very nice and knowledgeable. His passion for the arts is amazing. His TOK lectures were the best!
Mr. Vitols is not only great at teaching TOK but he is also very helpful when it comes to English. He gives a lot of insightful analogies and his suggestions have really helped me out on my essay writing. If you get him for English, you would be really lucky!! :)
Not trying to be bias or anything, since Mr. Vitols is my favorite teacher at Glenforest, but I think that you can only find something boring if you hold no interest in it. There may be many students in his classes who find his slideshows informative, but if you don't, you shouldn't be hating on him. He's doing his job, he's successful. You're not, not yet. And you won't be with such a negative attitude. Always think before you speak, or in this case, write. :)
Mr.Vitols tries so hard for everyone to understand and be successful in his class. He's so very helpful and also his slide shows are very informative. Ofcourse for someone who already knows what they are doing and for some one who doesnt like the subject ofcourse they may find it boring but for someone who doesn't understand they are very helpful.
I had Mr. Vitols for grade 10 science. I had low expectations for the course, but I believe I came out a changed man. He is a sophisticated teacher who expanded my mind. I learnt so much from him about life, people and society. I wish I had him for a social studies course, but it was a pleasure being in his class. It sucks that the rest of the class couldn't appreciate his lessons. He never caught the interest of the class, he was a bit too profound for grade 10 students.
Mr. Vitols is very passionate towards what he teaches, he is knowledgeable in many areas of study and never fails to entertain his class. He is not one to stay only on curriculum, he teaches his students there are many more important things in life other than the 75 minute course offers. I learn so much more from his class than any other. Thank you Mr. Vitols, really hope I have you for grade 10 history next year, grade nine was truly amazing!!
Mr. Vitols is very passionate about all the courses he teaches. He is the most involved teacher in social issues and often brings up discussions about them in class. He is very engaging but sometimes trails off the subject at hand. For future students of his, you are very lucky.
We like how he introduces TOK into our geography classroom and makes learning fun. His class is interesting and he makes really funny jokes and accents to keep us entertained. I WANT HIM NEXT YEAR FOR HISTORY!!!
Mr.Vitols is my favourite tecaher because he is the best! He explains everything and clears all concepts really well. He is very nice, helpful, kind, effecient, productive and amazing. He is also really funny and can sing beautifully. He is a very supportive and encouraging teacher. I Love Mr. Vitols cuz he is the BEST!!!
He is my science teacher and the best...I loved the class so much! He is definitely one of my favorite teachers! I hope I'll have him again as my teacher! we love you Mr. Vitols!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't think I have ever had a teacher or will ever have a teacher like him. He is one of the few that is in teaching because he cares about the well being of students. He taught important life skills such as proficient writing and speaking; skills that I have used at work and university. I went into his class not liking English at all, but it ended up becoming one of my favorite courses in all of high school.
great teacher but the TOK class isnt that relevant. But the definitely turns a boring subject into a good one.He rants quite a lot but he is very open and one of the realest teachers at glenforest. debating with him would be so much fun. I feel bad that he is a little different from the other teachers and doesnt have that many friends but thats his personality. He is a genuinely a good person and he puts in so much effort into what he does and one of the most considerate teachers at glenforest.
He is one of the best teachers.
one of the most caring teachers I've ever had, he's so knowledgable and good at his job! many thought provoking moments in his class
Probably one of the best English teacher ever! I like his social justice and hearing different stories from him, sure it might be off topic but he eventually get to the point.
Amazing teacher.He's very approachable and friendly too.
he is an awesome teacher funny and friendly. i enjoyed coming to his class and hope to be tought by him again someday.
English was fun with him!! He's an easy-going teacher and gives many chances to many people who didn't do so great on tests and quizzes.
Unbelievable teacher!!! I had him for Gr12 World Issues. He's wonderfully open-minded but at the same time it's awesome to listen to his opinions. Love him & his class. World Issues changed my life!
one of the best teachers i ever had..i hope i get him again
He was my english teacher and the best...I loved the class so much! He is definitely one of my favourite teachers! I hope I'll have him again as my teacher!
Exceptionally knowledgable and not at all hypocritical like some teachers. World Issues was excellent and I will miss not having talks about current world affairs everyday.
he's kinda cynical but he's taught me a lot. although he often goes off topic, his off-topic stories are kidna interesting.
Probably my favorite teacher in the year. This guy knows how to teach a class and is very understanding. I just found it annoying you didn't know when to hand stuff in... Mr. Vitols you are my idol.
He was my favourite teacher although sometimes he doesn't pay attention to you. He brings current affairs and issues into the classroom.
if people think that he is bab the reasons could be he is not paying attention,he teaches so that every one in the class will understand.very good he should teach all subjects.
A must have! I think we should all get him a remote control or "clicker-box" rather with a extra large pause button on it. Great teacher.
for me he is the first friend in the school.he is a teacher come friend.he doesnt give much home work If at all he gives we can finish it in the class.I want him every year.
he is a very good teacher. he is friendly,and cares a lot. his teaching is very different. I was preety good. I like him.
he has helped me with problems and is very open minded about things
If anyone complains that he doesn't teach, they are being stupid and probably were the ones who never paid attention. Vitols teaches very clearly and is VERY helpful. Cool guy.
I think Mr. Vitols is a extremely good man. Very sincere and kind about things.
He is fun, interesting, and VERY helpful. If you don't get something then GO ASK HIM. Greatest teacher ever, even better friend :)
very good teacher and makes his class interesting to be in and its funny how he always stops the videos all the time, classic vitols.
Awesome teacher. People complain that he's a bit button-happy when it comes to watching videos in class, but you learn so much more when he stops it and explain
He is a great teacher. If u get the opportunity to be in his class, u get 2 learn ideas from different perspectives. The only thing is, he has ADD :D great teac
well liked, but personally i found him to be condescending and arrogant.
awesome teacher and his world issues class is a must take one... he is very open minded and all but grades really hard but a ton of work is done in the class.
Is a nice guy, but gives rather odd tests and a lot of work.
amazing teacher... really helpful .. marks verry easily... is very fair to all da students...n can always crack a few jokez..enjoyed his class
