The best teacher that I have ever had. He does a lot of lectures but he makes it fun with his witty and sarcastic humor. The class is easy as long as you pay attention. He does mess with students who fool around to much in the class but they are kind of asking for it. I wish I could have him every year for all of my social studies classes (US History, Economics, etc.). Enjoy his class while it lasts.

He is a really funny teacher and makes class interesting. He doesn't give his kids the time of day. You ask him a question, he won't answer it or he'll answer it sarcastically. He will not help you, he is SO RUDE! He constantly makes fun of students.

He's hilarious, knows his facts, and makes his class really enjoyable for most students. Don't try to be a smartalec with him, he'll give it right back. Since he gives you the homework assignments super early, it's easy to keep up with them. Test questions come right from the homework and fun-to-listen-to lectures. I loved his class and he is certainly one of my favorite teachers.

Personally, Fili is my favorite teacher of the year. I had him both semesters this year and really enjoyed his class. He does pick on people who interrupt or disrupt the class, but not people who are good students. As for favoring athletes, he doesn't. He just favors hardworking students. Anyways, he's hilarious and obviously passionate about teaching. The class is easy to ace, just do the homework - which he gives in weeks advance. Basically, you're the only problem if you don't enjoy his class.

haha i thought fili's class was amazing. his lectures are filled with little snibbits relating to modern day stuff (like spongebob...haha). yeah, he picked on a few kids, but he DEFINITELY didn't favor athletes. he favors the people that put effort into his class. if you don't goof off and you put effort into his class, you can actually enjoy yourself. if you made him mad, hey it's your own fault. i wasn't an athlete, but i did perfectly fine in his class. super super easy. :)

Filli's funny if you appreciate his dry sense of humor, but sometimes he can come off harshly. I personally had a love-hate relationship with him, but I think that in the end, he was actually a pretty good teacher. Do your work, take notes, you'll be okay, His finals are SO easy, the questions are the exact ones on the chapter tests.

He's a good teacher, but sometimes I think he might focus a little too much on joking around with his students (not always in a postive way) to remember that his students should be focusing on the lecture, not the joke.

He is far from one of my favorite teachers. He would make fun of a lot of my classmates. Once, he was talking about how guys are smarter than girls in math and science!
