Good guy, clearly very intelligent but has trouble teaching others. Tests are hard but most ppl just "improvise". Supposedly really wealthy, which means he teaches because he chooses to.

dont be fooled by his niceness. he doesnt prepare you at all for the regents because he is bored by regents questions and teaches to keep himself interested. hes a nice guy but you wont learn a thing.

I love this man. He's very sweet, but can't really teach. It's hard to understand what he's trying to teach. I usually got my grades because I studied off of Princeton Review. NEvertheless, you shouldn't doubt his knowledge.

One of the nicest teachers I ever had. Maybe not the best at conveying information, but really got me into the material. Went back to see him even after I graduated :)

Mr. Steinberg is a genius, but is not as adept at relaying his knowledge as I would have hoped. Still, being in his class benefitted me a great deal.

Mr. Steinberg is the sweetest man. I'm not even in his class, yet he treats me like I'm part of his own. He's great, gives good advice, and is a good listener.
