He's hard. But he's honestly one of the only fair teachers in this school. If you give him respect, he will give you respect. This is a man that will give EVERY student a chance at success. He's someone you can trust. Also his classes are very entertaining and you learn a lot! Heavy on notes but whatever. Study hard, and you'll get high marks.

Many students adore him for his sense of humor and easy lessons. But maybe he's a little TOO laid back. He doesn't really give his students the opportunity to excel past applied English classes. If his lessons were more challenging a number of students would be able to take better classes the following year. There was one specific girl that he picked on the entire semester just because she was passionate about current politics. His jokes then silenced her, instead of encouraging her to learn.

He's such a funny teacher, you'll never be bored in his class. He's also pretty laid back, and his reviews will tell you what's on the tests/exams. Overall, and awesome teacher. Be prepared to take lots of notes though.

I don't think I've forgotten a thing he's taught me. He is actually such a GREAT teacher! His courses are set up for you to pass and do well. His reviews are exactly what is on the tests and exams. He is very knowledgeable and is very passionate about Geography. He will do everything it takes for you to succeed if you ask him for help. He is hilarious and really his mood bounces of the classes moods. His life stories and experiences forever make learning so much more enriching. Great time spent!

Zervas is one of the best teachers I've ever had throughout my high school years. He loves to teach and means well. He tells you almost everything on the exam and class tests. He's clear on everything he teachers and tells you what he expects. His review's are basically the tests. He's always there to help and answer questions. Great guy. A little crazy at times but really cool.

I would have killed to have him as a teacher. I only had him as a wrestling coach and it was HILARIOUS! I don't think I've ever laughed so much at a sports practice. Great stories, immpersonations, jokes and a great guy. Sickest teacher at Merivale, probably because he's just a big kid.
