Super organized teacher, had the entire semester planned out from day 1 including homework, so no reason for being behind.
He's easily irritated when you have to miss quizzes/tests even when the circumstances are beyond your control.
He gives out handouts with blank examples and fills them in during class on the blackboard while explaining, super clear.
If you have any questions after the lesson, he'll be glad to help you.
I really liked Mr. Tsimicalis!! He was very nice, the lessons were simple and clear, and he was always open to questions and pretty patient. This is a good class to be in even if you're not the best at calc because he really explains things from the bottom up. He gives lots of practice time in class so you can always ask him things afterwards. Also pretty funny and a nice dude. I had timmerman (who was THE WORST) and then tsimicalis after and the difference was huge.
My man Stan Tsimicalis
The man does not give half marks and if he runs out of communication marks to take off he will take off application marks. All these reviews are lies. He made a student cry in class. Swich out while you can. Im doing you all a favour
One of the best math teachers I've had at RHHS. He's a nice guy, who explains concepts very well. His tests aren't hard, and the person below isn't really speaking the truth; he takes communication marks off for formatting, which is entirely understandable. Yes, he doesn't give 0.5 marks, but his tests are honestly really easy - study or pay attention in class and you'll be set. Overall, Tsimicalis doesn't deserve the hate he gets, he's a great teacher who genuinely cares for his students.
I love this teacher. I love that he supports us and he understands us. He is so funny and at the same time so serious. I actually learned a lot of stuff from him. Thank you!
One of the few competent math teachers I've had at this school. He actually knows what he's doing and can actually teach. I liked that his classes were very straightforward, and he didn't waste time on those stupid teamwork or discovery type activities like other teachers do. Everyday he teaches the material, shows examples, gives us our homework and then gives us time to work or ask him questions. Also a really nice and funny guy.
he's my support system
S Tsimicalis is the best math teacher i HAVE EVER HAD. He makes people laugh and learn in the same time. He will never judge if you do not know something, even if you have a stupid question!
Mr. Tsimicalis is a smart math teacher and shows he knows math well , but the only issues with him , he doesn't help at all. He tell the students to get help from our partners witch they can't help us all the time. Also he makes some students in his class feel uncomfortable to learn something in his class ,when he tells his silly jokes to the class students witch can be rude and not nice sometimes , he needs to stop do that! and start begin serious about the students feelings.
OMG WHERE DO I START! I had him last year and he makes class so fun! I don't know what people below me are saying about him being mean and not being able to teach but that man can teach! He's really chilled too! He lets you just hang out sometimes! And when he laughs it's so funny! He's SUPER FUNNY! He's always trying to make us laugh! I did ok in his class but that was my fault! Great teacher! I hope I have him in grade 11
Mr.Tsimicalis is a very knowledgeable teacher , he has good teaching strengths , but he can be rude sometimes and doesn't know where to stop. He is not responsible for the class students , when we have the time to study for a quiz or test. He keep talking to the students about some silly jokes that's not relative to math. The teacher chat with the students and not telling them to be back to work. He seems not a very serious teacher with his silly faces he does to make the class fun. He need stop
Easily one of the best teachers I've ever had. He was the reason that I ended up pursuing mathematics in university after having him as my math teacher. Always supportive and made every class the most enjoyable time and I always looked forward to his classes.
At first I found him very intimidating. Later on I realized he was really nice if you squint. He's also funny at times--one time he pulled off an internet meme LOL. His tests are straight forward. Gre
This man always came to class with a smile on his face. He is an absolutely FANTASTIC teacher and is so hilariously funny. Has a heart of gold and really understands each and every one of his students
awesome teacher but marks a bit hard. definitely likes to answers questions and is very helpful whenever you need help with something
I have learned so much in his class!! He makes class so much fun. His tests are somewhat challenging, but fair.
Where should I start? Pay close attention to his grading - he unnecessarily docks marks, especially depending on if he likes you or not. Makes snide comments that aren't so funny for the random subjec
Honestly one of the best teachers I've ever had. :) He makes math fun and his personality is just amazing. Makes you laugh as well with all the silly things he does. :D
funny and teaches very well. kinda hard marker but it pays off in the future
Such a great math teacher, always sticks to the point. And also very funny
Really good teacher, classes are fun and certainly entertaining.
I loved my grade 10 math class with tsimicalis. He would joke around with us a lot and I did really well in his class. He's a great teacher who knows how and what to teach!
doesnt teach as much as some gifted students would like... so he's fit for academic teaching. he is suitable for academic students; they get along pretty well. Overall a good teacher, by the standards
Such a good teacher! He's funny yet teaches you and tries to instill valuable lessons in our brains. Math is now a breeze and unpainful!
He's a great teacher. Everyone listens when he talks!
I never thought I would like calculus. Tsimicalis made me love it. It turned out to be my favorite subject. [oh and he's also an easy marker! (part marks!)]
he is a good teacher and one bad thing about him is that when the bell goes he does not dismiss you until everyone is quite.
He is a nice teacher...yet..his classes are so boring..so intense..his class dun even seem like math class..its more like whoever talks first gets shot !
HE IS THE BEST MATH TEACHER EVER!! I LOVE HIM...i dont even go to rhhs but ive had him and hes super cool and can definitely teach!
Great math teacher. helped me the get the highest mark i ever got in math. Very strict but also can teach effectively.
Mr. Tsimicalis is honestly the best math teacher, he actually explains and loves to help. ELLAS ELLAS! :D
maybe morning classes are different, but i am scared of him. he seems annoyed a lot. he hates it when nobody puts their hand up XD
Have him this sem for gr.10 math. He makes things really comprehensible and clear and he has an awesome sense of humor =) keep it up mr.tsimicalis!
really cool math teacher. one of the best overall teachers i ever had. i actually looked forward to math class everyday and enjoyed being there.
Im good at math, but for once i have been proven wrong. He is the worst teacher ive ever had. He does not help ANYONE in the class. every1 failed his last test.
he has a class in a computer lab with only 7 kids in it, but he wouldn't let me use a computer. cool guy though.
He may sing during your tests, but he sure can teach math! I miss yah Sir
Mr. Tsimicalis you rock!!! Ur also hillariously funny!
