Very "chill" teacher-- he teaches the material in a clear manner! However there is one thing that I think he shouldn't do... If, and whenever our class gets rather rowdy, he loses his patience. Rightfully so! But it's the way does it that I'm not too fond off. He stops homework review and skips forward to the next topic. I find it quite disappointing that such a cool teacher should lose his cool like this, rather passive-aggressively. Please don't let a few students ruin! Many want to learn! :(
These reviews are very biased. I'm a Karas fan because of his sweet nature and practicalness, but you never want to see his temper. I don't know if it was just my year, but he would snap at students almost every week... talking to him became similar to avoiding land mines - sweet one moment, ready to tear your head off the next! Another point to note is that he knows little of the programs he teaches in computers. Other than that, his tests are always fair, and you'll do well if you work hard.
I wish all teachers were as hard working and dedicated as he is. He teaches more subjects than anyone else and puts 100% effort into making us understand the concepts. OSA's athletes would be nothing without him and also his computers class is way better than quereshi's since he actually helps if you ask him.
The BEST physics teacher you are ever going to have. classes are fun and interesting. Tests are fair. Personally, i think he's the best teacher at osa! just wait til physics 30 with mr.jauch... then you'll really start to appreciate all that karas does.
I feel bad for the man - he's way too overworked. He manages over 90% of school athletics, and yet manages to bring a good attitude to school almost every day. You won't understand how much the man kn
Great teacher who knows every detail of what he is doing. Anybody who needs help can get it, and anybody slacking will know it.
Mr Karas has a lot on his plate. He alone is responsible for pretty much everything remotely athletic at OSA. In addition he teaches computers, physics and math. Despite this he is a joy to be around
such a cool teacher! I honestly hated physics before this school year started but thanks to him, it is now my favorite subject =) He's also SUPER nice and takes off ur lowest quiz mark ^^
Very cool and very funny. I actually feel bad when I fail his test lol simply because he's just so nice
Really great teacher, especially physics. He's relaxed, has a sense of humour, and nice.
coolest teacher at OSA hands down. he mite not teach everything. but hes so chill and he marks nicely. hes definitely my favourite teacher in and outside of class
KARAS IS AWESOME!!! No one can beat him. Physics is my favorite class ever!
How can you not love Mr. Karas?? Funny and chill..something osa students need in their lives
Very chilled and relaxed, prepare for some self-learning on your part. But with the tradeoff of having an amazing class, it's worth it. However, don't push it TOO far, as he does occasionally snap.
never had him for math but i bet he's not the best teacher. i love him tho, he's so chill and so much fun. gym classes with him are great, all he wants is participation, he doesn't care about skill
very emotionally unstable. tries way too hard to be liked by students. only superficially knows the materials.
its like if you take tuba's aditude, and reverse it COMPLETELY really nice teacher.
Extremely easy-going. He's almost begging to be taken advantage of, 'cause he lets you get away with almost anything (including dancing on your desk during Math class).
Never had a class with this guy, yet somehow still had some pretty sweet conversations with him. Super cool guy.
He is a really nice guy and a good teacher but can be emo. Haha j/k we all love you Mr. Karas
Probably the funniest and most relaxed teach at OSA. Oustanding man! Even though sometimes he's rule-less but he's a great teach who makes everything fun and interesting : ) He takes the time.
The kindest most caring guy you will ever meet. Will go out of his way to help you and a great teacher. He deserves every bit of praise!!
best teacher i've ever had...absolutely amazing. very funny and truly cares about students. more of a friend then a teacher, which makes learning that much better!!!!
Mr. Karas is cool. He's goes along with almost anything, and his marking is easy too. Perhaps not the absolute best teacher I've ever had, but a really cool guy.
COOLEST GUY EVER, i've had drinks with the man! Good teacher, SOO helpful, totally helpful! Best volleyball coach too! He needs more respect! But i love the guy, he's like a friend
Karas is a good teacher, easy, fun classes, and i still have good marks. What sucks about him tho is that he tends to rank people according to what sports teams they're on.
He's a great guy, and was my favorite teacher in all of OSA. He doesn't know programming nearly well enough, but the France trip and other subjects rocked. Thanks Mr. Karas!
I have him for math... ahem. Needless to say, I'm having difficulty understanding some concepts, and it gets annoying on tests where we're tested on things he hasn't taught us.
he is a great teacher and easy to talk to. he honestly cares about his studentz...he may be a little less strict but he makez up for it by being so awesome!!
AWESOME GUY. makes learning fun and helped to put the osa Athletics on the map. for all u non-athletes, ur missin out. very supportive and great teacher/coach
Tends to let his TAs who haven't seriously taken the course do all the "teaching". Will spread his help out according to who's on his teams.
well he would be cool if he didn't have such scary mood swings.
you are a great teacher mr. karas... osa will benefit soooo much from you in the coming years
I love him for physics. I'm taking summerschool because hes not doing 30 :(
AWESOME TEACHER! helps you out, does good demonstrations,and his class creamed nelson's on nelson's own test~!
he should teach physics 30 IB...way better than nelson...!!!!!
Karas is a good guy. One of the most dedicated teachers at the school. I hope he stays that way for many years to come.
Great teacher...makes u UNDERSTAND concepts instead of doing boring University proofs like nelson....hes great..wish hed do phys 30 so i wodnt hav to take SS
mr.karas is such a good teacher! he makes learning fun! way to go , mr.karas!
Cool teacher that makes learning a joyful experience! =D
No explanation needed: Karas is da man. Major props.
He's really funny, class full of laughs while learning, my mark rose 25% because I liked it so much
Mr. Karas is great - students always look forward to having him substitute if they don't have classes with him.
Mr. K is awesome. He's always really nice whenever you need the help and he's just a nice guy in general.
