He's a pretty chill dude. No work gets done in his class whatsoever. He will inevitably go on some tangent about bagels or something. Be warned, he will try to impose his ultra-liberal political views on the students on like a daily basis but that is just the price of joining SSR, the breeding grounds for social justice warriors.
He is such a chill teacher. He understands his students and tries to make deadlines and generally all assignments less stressful. Great guy. Funny too.
Had him for Capstone. He's a homie.
Mr. Avery is an amazing teacher!!! I have him for AP Capstone and he makes the class amazing. If you show interest he loves you and I love that he really respects his students' opinions and what we have to say. He has made this year super meaningful!
I had him for Global II and he's honestly one of my favorite teachers. Really funny and I looked forward to his class everyday. He doesn't give too much homework, just textbook outlines which can be done in half an hour or less and he never gives class work or projects. Pay attention, listen, and you'll do we'll in his class.
Teachers straight from the textbook, but gives lengthy outline assignments. If you can stomach these assignments, then you'll do fine. Hard to determine whether he's actually knowledgeable since he teaches only from the textbook. I'm inclined to believe he doesn't have more knowledge to impart because he never supplies interesting knowledge outside the textbook. Other than that, he's down to earth and grades fairly.
This guy is awesome. He has a very charismatic personality. AP Human geography is one of the easiest classes I took, got a 95 in the class. He's real, down to earth and funny.
Mr. Avery is so fun. You aren't learning all the time, which some days can be more upsetting than others, but you learn a lot in his class that isn't on any test. You learn real stuff. If you warm up to his amazing personality, he will love you and you will be rewarded. Stay cool, and don't take advantage of his niceness
Love him forever! Very inspiring. He's cool. He got me reading the NYT and I love geography with him. Going to APHG class was the best part of my day.. I couldn't be happier
has favorites, not a eazy 100 but eazy to get a 90 if you study. Hes not the BEST social studies teacher at tech but hes in the top 10
If you have Mr. Avery 1st period, you will learn half way through the pd, unless your class is always on time and pays attention. Last year, the only time we'd learn something is after 1/2 the period is over. I got aggravated by this, but in the end, I actually ended up learning global as a whole and got a 95. He is a good teacher and when he gets/if he gets comfortable with you, he would make fun of you(un-offensively) he even danced/sang in class lmfao. He is a really funny guy and really nice
One of the chillest teachers I've ever had. His class is really interesting, and even though sometimes I felt we weren't covering enough for the AP (had him for AP Human Geography), I came out his class feeling smarter, and still got a 5 =]. Really enerous with grades and he knows when students are trying to do well, so he'll helpyou out. If you have him, our EXTREMELY lucky!
He often gets off topic and talks about anything, but global. Overall, he is a good teacher; one of the not boring global teachers. Sadly, I got a student teacher the second half of the year who was the most boring teacher ever.
one of the better teachers at tech, but there are betterr
really cool teacher. easy 90. gets off topic a lot to talk about more important things other than school and the curriculum but he still manages to finish what he has to teach
Mr. Avery taught me about life and how school isn't everything. Gave me a 96 first semester then went surfing in Hawaii the second semester. You're the man!
Mr. Avery is so awesome!!! He makes us laugh every day 1st period, and he's really easy to talk to and understand. Best Global teacher evarrr =)
My favorite teacher. Makes Global fun (I know, not possible, right?)
Excellent teacher. You'll learn even if you don't want to because his personality is dynamic and his teaching engaging. He does waste time if he doesn't feel like teaching, but he's so effective that you just can't complain. This teacher teaches without trying and makes it fun to boot. Tests are simple; just remember key concepts and review the book a bit. Goes off topic and interrupts kids often, but don't worry: you'll learn worthwhile things. -V
I LOVE MR.AVERY!!!! probably one of the best teachers in tech
Awesome guy, ive only had him for about 2 months now but i already love his class and look forward to his eccentric statements =D
had last yr for soph yr such a good teacher, he left for hawaii for a program of ss and i got mr fine, he was good too
Best teacher ever!!! His class is fun, and you learn a lot of things, he is really helpful and will do anything to make sure you are going to do well on the regents. :)
The only reason I come to class 1st period is because of Mr.Avery
He is totally awesome, love his class so far, glad he's staying the whole year :D
Very cool teacher. His teaching was easy to understand and he prepares you well for the Regents. If you do all of his homework, you will easily do well on his tests and quizzes.
I am so sad that is going to be leaving for a sebaticle.
Great teacher and distributes highly easy exams and quizes of which there are plenty. I defininately think he did a terrific charge for regents prep. On a final note, he taught me more on current events and life issues than any teacher ever did and probably would ever do.
Mr. Avery is mad cool! But he needs to talk less in class, stop interrupting us, and give less outlines.
He's a great a hilarious class. His class always makes my day. Didnt know his first name was Serge though.
great teacher, good notes and he gives pretty good preparations for the regents
Amazing teacher. Hes hilarious, extremely nice, verryy helpful; overall awesome guy.
he's a good teacher and if you hav him in the afternoon, its a good way to end the day
He is my favorite teacher in my entire year at tech. He is cool, discusses important issues, funny and interesting. Its hard not to like him. He is reasonable and really smart.
MAH FAVORiiT3 T3ACHER...MAKEzZ ME LAUGH..N LEARN...N iiZ JUS VERii K00L...N JUS AN 0V3RALL GR3AT T3ACHER!!!!!!!!!!!
THE BEST TEACHER IN TECH!!1 had him sophmore year. enjoyed his class the whole time.
go mr avery, youre the best. he actualy cares about his students which is cool
one of the best teachers at tech. really nice and knows a lot of information .. we need more people like you mr avery
THE COOLEST TEACHER u can find in tech, interesting classes makes you learn make sure to act like you pay atention or acxtually pay atention
Had him for honors global. Great teacher, nice guy, inspires people and notices their strengths. Good grader, watch out for the term project of 10 or more pages.
Mr. Avery is one of those teachers who makes it worth while going to school. I never forgot anything I learned in his class, I didn't have to. I credit him for opening my mind.
really cool teacher. we hardly do anything in his class but watch film. just be able to type a 15 page essay for him. really funny too
He's a nice man but he can be a bit condescending without realizing it. His grading is difficult to predict - he'll assign around 3 reports and your grade will be a reflection of those 3 reports and how much you participate. Try to stay awake.. show interest.
He's my favorite teacher, he really teaches classes while making it fun and enjoyable...Really down to earth teacher who actually knows what going on in students minds these days. MR. AVERY IS THE MAN!!
Great guy, and really cares about his students. Always have plenty of jokes without being corny.Just a nice class to relax in; you've have a lot of fun. I've had him only for TLA, so can't really say how his teaching methods are for social studies classes. But if he says things are due for a specific date, you can hand it in the next day, haha.
Go TLA 2005!
He thought I said f- you to him on one of the first days. It was hard trying to make up for that. Really cool guy. Reasonable, and understanding.
He is the best teacher ever..i actually stay awake in global cuz of him....his classes are interesting and he's funny
He is often unintentionally funny. If you got TLA, he'll help you on your paper if you have problems. Very good person to debate with too.
he's awesome! really good teacher and the outlines help a lot more than just stupid notes other teachers make. plus, the tangents we go on after class are the best. but sometimes he does that weird twitching that the bug-infested guy from men in black....
Where to begin? Hilarious, helpful, courteous, not condescending, interesting, dedicated, and still human. You are so gangster. TLA 2005!!! Luv ya! Ciao!
mad easy teacher. barely any work and an easy 85. i didn't study and still got 90s on his tests.
ugh had him freshman year, he gave good notes and i learned a lot from his class, but he was a little bit boring, he didnt hold my attention
he's too new in TLA... can't even teach it and all he does is talk about politics and amer history. it's supposed to be a research class, not another s.s. class
Ha, this man has the best taste in music. He's mad emo, son!
not too bad, but when it comes to TLA, he's kind of confused.
yo mr. avery is aite. i mean hes like strict but cool at the same time
A really cool teacher and a great and nice guy. Im really flad i had him, wish i had him again. Great guy, doesnt tell corny jokes like other teachers
If i say he is easier than mister Sims, you wouldn't believe me. you just got do your homeswork and participate and youre good. maad nice.
Really nice person. Very helpful. Him and Mr.K are great. Glad i'm in TLA because of him.
awesome teacher, he's up there with other awesome global teachers like Mr.K
awesome teacher. really nice, actually teaches well unlike some other teachers.
yes he talks a lot, and in a very boring manner so that u can fall asleep, but he is nice teacher
Very cool teacher. Knows his subject, and teaches it well. Pretty funny, awesome taste in music. But cares about participation a little too much.
