Zilles means well, and always tries to insert some fun into the boring discussions, but he sometimes goes ahead of himself when teaching. He's a very nice guy who is cool to talk to one on one.

I know I am not the only one who HATED mr. zilles. He chose favorites and treated the rest of us like crap. I learned absolutely nothing in his class.

He teaches spanish too, one of the best teachers i've had. he's understanding, but pushes you to work hard, but it doesn't feel like working.
