Downright unfair at times. Usually cruel with grading. Does not see much value in effort and gives consistently low grades to all students in a class. Unnecessarily hard on students.

Mr. Sivin has great knowledge of the material he teaches. However, he can be very unclear in his instructions during class and students have to see him to get an explanation. He can be very picky when students write essays.

Mr. Sivin's the man. He really worked hard even though there was a lot of work and the material could be a little depressing, he really tries hard to make it work for everyone.

Siv was probably the greatest teacher I've ever had. He was hysterical, helpful and just an overall sweetheart. I'd go to him for help in classes when I didn't even have him as a teacher anymore.
