"Clear grading criteria" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Hilarious"

Zila is a great professor of history. He sometimes got caught up in little side rants, but most of the time, he covers the material in an interesting and helpful way. I would definitely choose to take one of his classes again.

HI101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: C-

He is a great and interesting teacher, but his tests and quizzes are really hard. But he is hilarious and makes history (my least favorite subject since 5th grade) interesting!

His tests are extremely hard but he will go out of his way to help his students if they apply themselves.

Histo101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Hated this class with a passion. I got stuck with him both semesters. I rarely got even a B on any of his quizzes and I studied for them for at least 30 minutes most days (a 5 question quiz). The girl who sat next to me skipped lunch to study usually. Notes had almost no organization, and he thinks he's funny but he's not. Love for the Lord evident

Really great guy. He loves the Lord and he shows that in his actions and in his lectures. It just takes awhile to pick up on Zilas teaching styles... quizzes=book/tests=notes

Great guy, it takes some work, but getting an A in this class is very possible. Use notecards. Get used to his caveman impression, he uses it for everything.

I really liked him. I didn't know history could be that interesting. His accents are so cool! I would definitely recommend his class. He is a neat guy who is a teacher AND an actual human being, if that makes sense.

Just warning any of you martial artists out there thinking about taking his class. Do not tell him you are participate in martial arts... he shuns that very much...very interesting man though and scary all at the same time... I can just imagine him in his basement spending his free time setting up those plastic green army men making fake noises...

HI 211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Mr. Zila's laidback approach to teaching simply did not fly w/ me. His lessons seemed to be strewn all over, causing many classes to end by going through massive amounts of info at warp speed. I also never want to hear about Chicago again thanks to him. That is all he would talk about b/f the bell and into 1st few mins. Advice: avoid if possible
