If you're assigned with native speakers at your table, you'll do fine. You probably won't learn much, but they'll help you grade-wise. If you're not a native, google translate is your best friend. Homework is easy. Jarvis is funny and hard to hate.

His class is easy if you have native Spanish speakers to help you. He gives random assignments that can really hurt your grade. I am sure my Spanish skills got much worse from being in his class because we never did any work! Just watched movies.

Instead of giving extra help or opportunities to struggling students, he tries to bump up scores with "free grades" that ultimately do not help much. Unwilling to compromise with students on grade related issues. Smokes too.

Some of the teachers will make up stuff about him like that he's a mean teacher, but he's actually not. I learned more in his class than i did when I had Bauman. He's actually nice and can be pretty chill. STOP COMPLAINING.

He expects students to be responsible which is why some of them give him a bad rating. He will teach to those who are there to learn but he doesn't babysit.

He talks about catching cheaters, but he never does. I got an F because I don't cheat but at least I desereved my grade. The whole class is probably goin to not pass the AP, test, because they always cheat on the tests. Jarvis, please catch those cheaters

Mr. jarvis tries too hard, and he needs to be a little less touchy w/ his students...I agree that he needs to stay on topic when he teaches, and be moe organized.. i dont think he ever heard of a lesson plan
