Had the pleasure of sitting in on wrap meetings after a play last year and was deeply impressed at how encouraging he and Tanya were toward the students. They know Drama is about respect, confidence building and understanding who inspires you and why, all important life lessons, whatever profession you choose. My kid is happy and flourishing under their tutelage.

To anyone looking at this review do not hesitate go now and sign up for his class! He is the most amazing, intelligent, caring, and funny man! He brings good vibes to the class and will always ensure that you have a good time. The best thing is him and Tanya are the best pair of drama teachers there are. They are different from all the other teachers at Temp. They commit there time to theatre temp and will go above and beyond for you! Words can not explain Jimmy. I have mad respect for him- A.C

He thinks his drama class is important. When the chances of becoming a successful actor is as likely as winning a multi-million dollar lottery who needs classes like this wasting resources that could be used in productive fields. You're teaching future Starbucks employees. Sciences > Drama

A great, great man. Maybe not totally the best scholastic teacher ever, but I've learned some great and valuable life lessons and skills that'll take me far in what ever I choose to do. Really supportive if you need him, very friendly and joking nature, and despite his numerous senior moments, he really does know what he's talking about. Now, if only he were there more often...

He knows his stuff in the Acting industry. He even mentored Adam Sandler, who's one of the best actors of ALL TIME. He is one unique, funny and inspiring teacher. That is all.

LOVE HIM, he really does care for the welfare of the students. some say he's fake and yes he can be over the top but i've never thought about him as fake, he's an amazing role model and i consider him an important father-figure in my life even though he only taught me for one year unfortunately he's retiring soon :( i call him a 'real teacher', he teaches students life lessons not lessons from a book and theatre temp is always flawless because of him

An excellent role model, and motivational speaker. He practices what he preaches and has perfect values in life. He knows what true success is, and does everything in his power, and more to ensure it for himself, for his colleagues and especially, for his students.

Good at what he does. But a terrible teacher. Clearly picks favourites and always has his head in the clouds. Nice guy, but doesn't teach you anything. I didn't learn in his class.

Constantly preaches about his religion and clearly favors Italians. Or if he favors someone who's not Italian, they're 'Italian trapped inside a ____'. Completely unprofessional.
