As a VP we have been thrilled with Mr. Nicola. Questions are answered immediately and thoroughly. Very helpful. Glad he is my son's advisor.
He made me love history. It was totally easy to get an A if you actually did the work, but he is a difficult teacher. Make sure you speak up in his class, and actually do the reading.
Nicola is basically superman. The man is amazing. You really do appreciate everything about his class more and more as time goes on. All of the work is completely worth it.
I was in his class a loooooong time ago--before most of his current students were born. He's the kind of teacher you don't forget, in a good way. :-)
Mr. Nicola is a great teacher! He's so excited about history and really teaches the stuff! Too much work, though.
Mr. Nicola is by far my favorite teacher at Livermore High! He gets you prepared for the AP Test but also knows how to keep the class interesting. He also taught me how to be better organized :D
A very nice guy, but APUSH is a lot of work. So many notes and tests and hw.
If you want to learn something, go to Nicola. He knows his stuff. He is someone you should get to be friends with because he is a brilliant person. Nicola is where it's at!
You can't go wrong with Nicola. Awesome teacher, you'll learn alot but not dread the class. Pus he drives a sweet car and just looks like a teacher.
Hands down the best teacher at LHS. He puts so much time and planning in to each lesson. If every teacher was like Nicola, the school would be 100x better.
I actually look forward to going to that class. AP History is hard, but he does a great job teaching it!
He is a really good teacher. For AP US History you have to learn a lot of information and he does a great job of teaching it to you.
he tries really hard to get the students to participate in the lectures. he really cares that we all understand everything
very good teacher. His tests are hard(for AP), but hes very very fair about grading.
It's obvious to anyone who takes his class that he has a passion for history...the class can be tough at times, but his love of the subject helps us through it
he is the only teacher that knows about the subject he is teaching
His class is really hard (AP), be prepared for a lot of work. Hes a great teacher though, he really cares about your education. Ask about the constitution song
Although he can be a little intimidatiting, you can definantly tell that he cares a lot about the subject and the kids he teaches, which is very encouraging.
Nicola's class may be difficult at times, but it's very educational and interesting... and he's just cool.
he is cool but really really hard adn gives lots of work
Mr. Nicola has developed one of the best teaching systems I've ever seen. It's a terrific system but unfortunatly he hesitates to deviate from it when he should
One of the greatest teacher I ever had. Always willing to help you or explain topics again. Very passionate about the subject. Prepared me well for the AP exam.
Really just an awesome teacher and human being. He respects/cares about his students AND sings. He's the kind of teacher you'll thank when you win your Grammy.
Nicola actually made me interested in history and politics. He's a great guy and manages to be neutral and respectful in debates despite his passionate beliefs.
Mr. Nicola knows what he is talking about in AP History and can explain it well. I learned a lot from him and enjoy it when he makes the buzzer noise.
i was not satisfied with this teacher. relied far too much on us taking notes on the book (at least my year, which was a few past. maybe he has changed)
This guy is the most compassionate teacher I've ever had. He explains things clearly and is always going out of his way to help a struggling student.
Awesome teacher I learned more in one year of his AP class than I learned in my whole high school life! Thanks Mr. Nicola!!! Keep it up!
Mr. Nicola doesn't like me much, but that doesn't mean I don't think he's cool. Also, he's a great teacher.
A wonderful teacher..he makes a mean lemonade as well.
One of the best teachers i have ever had. He puts the effort in to educate students
Good teacher, hides his frustration with the incompetent fairly well. Nice guy, knows his stuff, second only to the Fong, but not a close second.
Mr. Nicola is the best. He deserves so much credit. He's so passionate and you can tell he's devoted to teaching and cares about his students.
Loves what he does and makes us want to learn!! I really liked his class.
The most devoted teacher I've seen in my life. (I mean, Fong is devoted too, but this guy has devoted his entire life to teaching)
Mr. Nicola is the best teacher to ever instruct. He has guided all of our classes to success. Any program that he is involved with indeed has great success.
My favorite history teacher. He goes out of his way to make history mean something. His class is a lot of work, but stick with it, you learn.
