Mr. Cohen was one of my favorite teachers at GNN. His APUSH class was funny yet knowledgeable, and he made APUSH fun. He always had a witty retort, and although he can be aloof at sometimes (writing the same stuff three times on the board or expecting us to know things we never read) he always makes it up to us and he really prepared us for the AP. 10/10 would recommend to anyone!

He doesn't know how to teach and gets most of his material from Babkis, he looks high and confused half the time in class, I learned more from extra help with babkis than I ever did in his class.

One of the BEST teachers I have had at GNN. His class is the perfect mix of learning and joking around. He is so funny and always runs through everything until he feels like the whole class gets it (really pays off for his tests and essays). When some students can get on his nerves it is hilarious to watch his reaction. I have never enjoyed a class as much as Cohen's!! Amazing teacher!

He is the best teacher of all time in GNNHS. I never met an amazing person in my whole life. His dedication and warm heart for teaching is outstanding. He really loves and cares for all his students. He knows how to put the information in the students brains and I always got A's. He is not a hard grader and at the end of the year he will always give you the benefit of the doubt.

He is great. He is the 1st soc teacher that really made me to open the soc text book and read it. He always collects the hw and grade it which really makes me to put effort on hw ! Now I love to read the text more and I don't google stuff as much. He is funny and the way he teaches is great, he makes us prepare for regents. He makes us to write good essays and he always says anyone can come to extera help after school.

Hes sooo funny! Sometimes hes repetitive and annoying but overall hes a good teacher I always do well on his tests without even studying. If you're on his good side he'll love you and give u the benefit of the doubt in every situation regarding missing homeworks, low test grades, etc. Just be respectful and answer questions and u wont be on his bad side!

Cohen rocks, i had him 2 years in a row. Funny guy, dry sense of humor, incredibly easy class but then again i like history. Still, all he did was put notes up on the projector, whoich got boring.
