Mr. Ruiz is a great person. He's super chill. I had him for regular psychology though, and I would strongly not recommend taking his psych class. He's never in class, we're always watching movies (sometimes they aren't even about psychology!), and when we have quizzes based off of mediocre google slides presentations that our peers make, it hits your grade hard if you aren't VERBATIM writing down EVERYTHING on EVERY SLIDE that is full of a bunch of nothing. Psych stunk really bad.

I had Mr. Ruiz for World History 2 and he was a super nice teacher. He always puts on fun educational movies and actually teaches. He has a very monotone voice so you might fall asleep a lot in his class. Other than that he was an amazing teacher who helped every student and was super understanding.

Mr. Ruiz is a good teacher but sometimes moves too fast. The class, to be fair, was pretty difficult and most students did not even bother to take notes. Otherwise, Mr. Ruiz himself was a great teacher.

Mr.Ruiz has to be one of my favorite teachers at Robinson. He makes sure that everyone succeeds, and is kind enough to provide retakes for his tests. He's very nice as a person and you can talk to him about anything. He's very fair, reasonable, and gives detail about the subject in his lectures with the textbook as a guide. Just takes notes in class, do the work, study the notes he gives you. He's always there if you need to ask him any question.

Mr. Ruiz.... Is the most amazing teacher I've ever had. Ever. He's always open to talk to if you don't understand something, or even if you just want to talk and joke around and what-not. I ended up asking him to give me away at my wedding, he's awesome, never doubt him. He's also pretty lenient, and if you didn't take well enough notes--or failed to completely-- he posts the pdf file on blackboar

He is such a "pushover," it is amazing. I don't mean that in a bad way. I love Mr. Ruiz and I know he really loves his subject. Such a nice man and I wish there were more people out there like him.

His lessons were pretty monotonous, but Mr. Ruiz is a cool guy. We watched several movies throught the year (but we rarely finished them)...Not all of the test material is covered in class, so study.
