Mr. Georgi is pretty chill. He's super funny and classes are interesting. In contemp, we just listen to him talk (which is funny and you learn alot). But he's the hardest grade ever ;( And essay tests are deathly.

I had Georgi for World Civ, it's tough. I heard contemp issues with him is hard too but you learn SO MUCH from him. He's funny and his lessons fascinating. He gives a lot of reading quizzes though, they're not bad. You also write maybe like 2 essays a week. TAKE WORLD CIV it's a really cool class

Contemporary Issues wasn't the easiest class, but it taught me a lot. Even though it was my hardest class, I enjoyed it the most. Georgi's perspective (and sense of humor) makes for an interesting lesson and an amazing class.

this man is literally perfection. he's a really hard grader though. contemp is the class that i have the worst grade in, yet it's still my favorite class to go to. be prepared to write a ridiculous amount of essays and papers. honestly, georgi is one of the funniest, most knowledgeable, and best teachers at punahou.

Good 'ol Mr. Georgi. Short explanation: He's the best teacher ever. Longer explanation: If this man was assigned to be a teacher for your class, say World Civ/Contemp, consider yourself blessed. To be honest, if I could I'd take a social studies class with him every single year of my high school career! He's has the funniest sense of humor, too. He's a very honest, kind old man. Kinda like the grandpa I never had. Thanks for sharing a bit of your knowledge with us!

Mr. Georgi always uses humor and good-natured sarcasm to make each of his world civ lessons engaging. He makes his classes seem like a live performance on stage, so he's a really fun teacher to have.

Is rumored to grade essays by weight (one student said he took them all and threw them down the stairs, which had marks for grades). In truth, it's just how good it is. RESUBMIT, RESUBMIT, RESUBMIT.
