Fantastic, stand up guy. If you take the time to get to know him, you will learn he is actually a very caring and outgoing person. In terms of math, I had him for Calc BC. Absolutely recommend the class; he completely prepares students for the AP test, and it is an enjoyable class. Not overly difficult by any means.

Have him for BC. Pretty chill, loves Newton and knows a ton about Mathematicians. Also pretty good at preparing students for the AP test, I've heard. Study and you'll do fine – just make sure you understand everything before the test. If not, you're dead because he takes of a ton of points if you mess a tiny thing up. Do homework, it counts as extra credit towards the test. Also don't make him angry, he'll tell you that you were raised wrong and stuff.

had him for precalc during my junior year. He was definitely an easy teacher for this class; do your homework, memorize your flashcards, rewatch his apresos before the tests and you could basically ace them. Even after leaving, he was one of the few teachers that remembered my name and took the incentive to shake hands with me whenever we saw each other in the halls. He is a Bellarmine legend, for better or for worse - and it was the definitely the former for me.

Mr. Reyerson was an excellent teacher. He doesn't use the textbook much, and is extremely knowledgeable about whatever he teaches. Sometimes, he goes off on tangents and doesn't explain in detail, but if you ask him for help, he'd be more than happy to help. Overall, it was an excellent year with him. In the beginning of the year, it was slightly hard to adapt to his teaching method, but after getting used to it, his class became one of my favorites. Calc BC with him was an excellent class.

Mr. Reyerson is the best math teacher I've had at Bellarmine. Now I might have stars in my eyes because my teacher last year was a small angry ball of femenazi fury but I digress. Reyerson takes a novel approach to teaching Calculus, and if you bear with him you'll be fine. Do all the homework, make an effort to memorize your flash cards, and you'll come out just fine. The key to thriving and enjoying your time in the Reyerdady's class is coming in with an open mind. You won't regret it.

I had Mr. Reyerson for Calc BC this past year as a junior. Most of the time you will ask yourself what the hell this guy is doing or why we are watching a documentary on a basketball coach midway through the semester. But if you don't understand something, rest assured that he will take his time to explain it to you whenever he can.
He really does care about his students and he is generally a funny teacher, but be sure to do all of the homework and study for the cumulative tests.

Mr. Reyerson is by far the greatest teacher I have ever had in my life. His method of teaching was unique in that he didn't rely on reading a textbook in class. He taught you how to think and how to solve problems analytically.

We watch movies in class on the history of math, and then are asked to self-teach the material at night. What is this? Worst class I have ever taken. Taking the BC AP Test in the next couple months, and Mr. Reyerson has not prepared my class at all.

It's his way or the highway. He holds grudges, is not very clear on his lessons, and makes us do all of his grading work for him besides entering the grade in the grade book.

Mr. Reyerson has given me an appreciation for math that I never had before. His BC Calc class is meant for guys who are genuinely interested and intrigued by mathematics, though, so it would definitely seem like overkill to someone who doesn't care about math and just wants to do well on the AP test. He's a passionate teacher who presents material logically, explains the reasoning behind the formulas, and doesn't hesitate to share the interesting peculiarities, applications, and history of math with the cla

Gives homework by flipping through calculus books from the 1950s and assigning random problems so that you spend most of your time on algebra steps not meant to work out nicely like problems from a typical math text. Meanwhile, he ignores the AP curriculum and the book we had to buy for the class; we've spent one day each on topics that show up frequently on the AP while spending weeks on units unrelated to the standard.

I have nothing against him personally, but i spend as much time on the homework as i do just figureing out what we have to do. concepts are made difficult, and he seems to like programming on the calculator more than actually teaching.

I have him, I hated him, I hated the fact that we ALWAYS had to use our Calculators. The class is easy, if you are good on tests, about 95% of the grade is testing and homework is almost mandatory extra credit, meaning it doesn't carry over to the final. The class is very boring if you know the material, but an extremely intellegent guy, fun to talk to. Helped me to be able to have an amazing opportunity at Bellarmine, will go up to bat for you if you get good grades in his class

Wastes a lot of time in the class with the calculator and videos that are not helpful. Rushes through the actual learning material and is a ruthless grader and takes of bazillion points if the answer is not right, very little partial credit for work. Expects the student to learn by himself. He destroys a sutdents interest in Calculus.

Algebra 1 Accelerated is super easy, but people somehow find a way to fail it. Just check all your answers on the test with your calculator. He has a weird grading system, tests are the only graded things

He's a bit off his rocker. His teaching style encourages one to learn on his own (like in college). He's very helpful outside of class, and likes to make fun of Swedes, too.
