Mr. Sittler appeals to a certain type of person. He believes in hard work and self-teaching, but he is always willing to help. Overall good teacher.

Mr. Sittler, as previously mentioned in the review section, is the closest person to a college professor you will get at Vintage High School. He likes to share his philosophies and deep insights with his classes, which makes for a pleasant time although normally he is preaching to the choir. Students who are used to learning independently will find Mr. Sittler to be a great resource, those who rely on constant teacher assistance will run his patience. Do not run his patience.

If you want to do anything math related in your life as a professional make sure you have Sittler as a teacher... His classes are the closest you can get to college classes at this school, he doesn't conform to the lowered standards of every other class on campus, sticking to the standards which the college board entails and you will actually need later on. Other than on a math basis Sittler has frequent very insightful discussions about life and If anyone has prepared me for life it was him

Deffinetly a very smart man, he knows what he is talking about, but has a temper and constantly puts our class down, he does have favorites. When he gets really upset he yells at all of us not just the people who were making him so frusterated. Basically he makes it difficult to feel proud or good about yourself about anything, not just math but in life. He's easier to work one on one with but I think he's to smart for his own good, makes it difficult to connect to his students. Learned alot !

Why not teach to those who dont get it...not to just those gems you like. Quit reading magazines and talking about non math issues.
