I have known Simon since the early days of middle school. Always interested in subjects that were not taught at school, always looking to figure out more about our world, in a way that was quite inspiring. I have to say, when he told he was being a teacher, it definitely seemed liked the proper fit, since he now had the opportunity to teach his philosophy of life to the younger generations. I recommend strongly Simon's capabilities and dedication as a teacher.
Simon it's an excellent teacher, he is very creative in his teaching methods, which keeps my kids interested, which is very hard to do! He is very knowledgeable I highly recommend him!
Handling a classroom full of teens can be very difficult. Throughout my high school years, there were only a few teachers who could to grab and maintain the students' focus during class. By encouraging us to express ourselves, analyzing situations and debating to defend our opinions, Simon's dynamic never failed to make us understand and reflect in and outside the classroom.
Simon was my teacher throughout my senior year, which we all know is the most stressful one since we are all trying to enter to a good university while trying to get a good grade in our last high school year.
His classes were only 2 hours a week, but I was so looking forward for them during the whole week because they were so “not normal” like the rest of my classes in which all we did was listen to the teacher and take notes. We learned while having fun because since he taught sociology all we did was argue, discuss, give our POV and so did he which of course meant that we were learning new things to improve our knowledge and probably change our thoughts for better and more mature ones.
He is a very good teacher and I’m sad he was my teacher for only one school year and not more because I know I could’ve learned way more with him.
He's a well informed person who has the patience to explain every problem that you may have. He's quite pedagogical and well tempered, just in his evaluations and balanced in the final hour. Having him as a teacher is an honor and a great inversion.
Great teacher! He has helped me for quite a few years now and I have zero complains.
What always surprises me about him is that he always looks for ways in which you can get interested in a subject. He uses current events or personal hobbies you may have and applies it into his teaching methodology which makes everything way more exciting. He doesn't just teach, he wants you to learn and understand, and to be able to reach your own conclusions about a subject.
He is very motivated and passionate which is a welcome change from the typical boring teacher, and overall a great person to know.
Simón truly cares about his student's education.
While most teachers just clock in & out, Simon is always thinking about ways to improve teaching techniques and strategies.
Simón employs one of the most effective, yet unused, tools any teacher can implement in a classroom. He listens to his students. This approach allows him to link his student's areas of interest with the curriculum, creating an engaging and creative classroom environment.
As a colleague, I learn every day from Simón just by looking at his interactions with his students and the reciprocity they show towards him. I consider Simón a role example as a teacher. Without a doubt, I would 100% recommend Simón as a teacher.
I have known Simon many years ago, for me he is an excellent teacher actually he is wonderful, he is polite, intelligent, patient with the students, competitive, and he has so much more skills, I can't discribe him in one paragraph because he really is amazing.I love his classes I think that the way he teaches is unique. I hope you know him, you will enjoy.
