Girardo can be scary at times. But he's smart!! Good teacher
I've had him for math only once, and all i can say is i'd do anything to switch into his class. Don't get me wrong, he's not easy at all. But i can tell you that he's patient, answers all his students' questions, and knows how to teach in the most understanding way. I still refer to his grade 10 notes, in grade 12 Functions. He only tests you on what he's taught, so whether you get a good mark or not is based on the amount of effort you put in.
Easily one of the worst IB Math teachers in Pope. I remember taking him for IB Math SL in grade 10 to prep for the IB Math course the following year. Don't get me wrong, the guy can actually teach and is very helpful. But his test are unnecessarily unfair and too long. For our final exam, he threw away the math department's exam in order to create his own exam which contained purely grade 12 advanced functions math even though we did the subject for 1 week!!!
Do your homework, do a few practice problems. Be grateful that you have a calm and funny teacher who is a clear communicator. Very accepting of any questions.
He was one of the best teachers I've ever had. He doesn't give much homework and he makes everything really easy to understand. He gets straight to the point of the lessons.
The best math teacher I have ever had. Unlike most teachers, he doesn't mind when you bombard him with questions because his main priority is helping each and every student to the best of his ability.
Boring he is good at teaching but is a hardass
One of the best math teachers one could ever ask for
He is probably the best Math teacher out there. He really listened to me when I had difficulty, and pushed me to success. Do not fall asleep in his class, and do not come late to his class. He is also a major The Beatles fan.
Really smart but really hard. But he's an overall understanding and nice guy. DO NOT BE LATE FOR HIS CLASS
Legend. A mighty fine bloke, indeed. Oh wait, he's Canadian, ehhh.
OMG. MR GIRARDO IS MOST DEFINETLY THE GREATEST MATH TEACHER OF ALL TIME. WITHOUT HIM, I WOULD'VE FAILED. I LOVE YOU MR GIRARDO. YOU MAKE EVERYTHING SO CLEAR AND MAGICAL. <3 BE THE IB KIDS TEACHER NEXT
BEST TEACHER EVER, HE REALLY PUSHES YOU TO WORK HARD

AMAZING TEACHER, HAVE HIM THIRD PERIOD... OMG HE'S HILARIOUS! AND TEACHES SOO WELL
Makes a big deal about seeking help, but he is actually very unnaprochable. He scares me...good thing he's a good teacher.
Why is he always late for class? Wasting precious Girardo time!
Definitely my favourite teacher. If you get him, consider it a gift from heaven. He is very good with time and always makes time to answer questions every class. I love his sarcastic way of teaching.
Very helpful, and great at teaching. Thank you Mr. Girardo!
He along with Ms. Moir is the best Math teacher at Pope. Always uses overheads, very clear, concise teaching. Average marker & appreciates effort. Makes Math understandable! Also, his sarcasm is cool!
My very favourite teacher. Solely because of his teaching ability. EVERYTHING makes sense when he teaches it. Thankyou so much MR G
an amazing teacher ... his robotic/sarcastic voice helps so much when it comes to teaching ... we learn something new nearly everyday and he's a joker ... my fave teacher definitely!
Mr. Girardo thought math in a way that can be understood by all!!! He made sure everyone understood the concepts. He always made sure that he is available for help at all times!!
Hard marker. He can teach an entire new concept in under 30 minutes. He has a sarcastic way of joking which is occasionally quite funny. Very helpful!
i had this teacher for my grade 12 enrich and oac cal. also enjoyed having him as my math league mentor. he's definitely one of my favourite highschool teacher.
he is an awesome teacher as long as you don't sing 'roxanne' by the police in a high pitched voice during class!
Very clear teacher, if you have a problem he explains it so you can understand it, he jokes around in a sarcastic way, GREAT TEACHER
Really great teacher! quick and clear! good job sir!
For any future students, if you love the Leafs, you will love this class....keep up the awesome work, Mr. G....Go Leafs Go
he can be very testy at times, but overall the best type of teacher for math, great teacher, good teaching methods
