I had him my freshman year, he never asked the class if they needed help, and he wasn't accommodating to students like me with ADHD. HE IS NOT A GOOD TEACHER

Mr. Carfora is a great teacher who makes you work. There are not enough teachers out there that are as passionate as Mr. Carfora. He will make you earn your grade but in the end you will be thankful for all that you have learned. Any student at Suffern High School would be lucky to have him as a math teacher.

Mr. Carfora was by far the best math teacher I ever had. He kept me challenged in class, explained everything in detail, and made the year go by easy. He kept my love of math going up to this day.

Carfora is a lecturer. He doesn't ask questions and usually doesn't answer any either. He loves his math frac and everything else about his calc. Good luck if you have him for Freshmen level algebra!

Honestly, a nice guy outside of class, willing to say high/joke a bit; but inside, it's a challenge to stay awake. I've fallen asleep at least twice for a few minutes, he wouldn't stop talking if a train busted through the wall. Tests get harder as the year goes by, and if you were an B /A student, you'll struggle to maintain those grades. But seriously, one of the dullest classes ever, ask anyone who had him, they'll agree. The first 4 letters of his name is FRAC backwards, like a calculator.

By far one of the worst math teachers I have ever had, not helpful at all and destroyed my high school days with math from the get go.

Favorite teacher of the year. Clear, concentrated, focused... he made BC calc understandable for me and I admire his drive and love of mathematics. From what I hear, BC Calc is his best course.
