Had him as my trig teacher. His notes are SO NEAT, and he usually write on the entire board so you can just take a pic of them and look back later if you don't understand anything. His tests are really straightforward, I got 95+ on all of his tests because they were really similar to the homework questions. The only one thing I don't like about him is that he made a lot of mistakes when he was teaching the algebra part. But they were really obvious so I didn't get confused.
Mr. Natale's a pretty cool guy. Jokes around with the class and teaches well. Make sure you do your homework as it's instrumental to learning. Most of the class period is him doing classwork problems/teaching lesson, which doesn't really give you time to actually try some problems on your own. Overall, good teacher :) Got a 5 on the AP Calc exam
Mr. Natale is a nice guy but classwork is very fast paced and I often get confused. There are some kids that just get trig and when they do a problem once they will know how to do it forever. I on the other hand get confused in trig and forget how to approach problems so getting more practice problems from him would be appreciated but overall his teaching is ok.
Have Natale for trig. Love his funny accent and vocabulary. Tests are hard but fair and I'm doing well in his class. It's by no means easy but if you do the work you'll be fine. It's not insanely difficult either and his way of teaching/test setup is easy but works well.
All these negative reviews are from bad students. I did most of the homework, paid attention in class, didn't really study for his tests. I got a 99 of the Trig regents. If your doing bad in his class its your fault not his.
I don't know why I keep sing all of these negative reviews for Mr. Natale. I had him sophomore year and I just got my trig regents grade back today and I got a 99. If your not a [email protected] students his class is easy and very helpful. If you are, Good Luck
He is a very kind teacher and does have an expansive vocabulary; however, he can not teach and the textbook that is used for homework doesn't give clear explanation ether so if you want to do well, you either a) go to another teacher for tutoring bbuy a good trigonometry book yourself. Sometimes, he would be giving us the wrong formulas and his questions on the test are not similar to what he taught in class. Can be boring at times and rarely expains stuff, just gives you a bunch of examples.
Nice guy, good teacher and knowledgeable. Has vocabulary better than most English teachers. Helped me my italian hw when it was just laying there when he was passing by =p
His style of teaching is a lot different than what you expect. He gives you Do-Nows and his lesson is based on the Do-Nows. Just do the hw, study for his tests and actually pay attention and you'll pass easily.
He gets questions wrong a lot, and we have to correct him! He teaches in a weird order and his homeworks and class are easy and then the tests are hard.
I don't care what anyone says. He was the best math teacher I had at tech. His italianess is hilarious, and I found his explanations for things to be really helpful. I passed the regents in the 90s! I've never felt like i was good at math before...
People who thinks he is a great teacher because he is easy. Easy wouldn't help us. What he explains to the class is confusing as well.
what are you talkin about Mr. Natale is a great teacher he always helps you understand, hes clearly one of the better math teachers at tech
He is not a good teacher. He is confusing and he didn't even know that half of the class is falling a sleep and some people are playing with their phones and eating. He's not good at math either, i don't know how he became a math teacher.
He's a GREAT teacher, and he's one of the few with a personality. But the tests aren't the easiest.
i dont consider him as a teacher because he never give us any notes or theorems and proofs we need and he just give us a thousand basic easy problems that are not helpful at all . whats the difference from reading a textbook? at least the texbook had formulas and teach u certain terms and laws.
Just do the classwork and hws and pay attention in class. Youl'll do well on the regents.
don't know how to teach and mean to the students. waste time in class on repeating same thing over and over.
He's a really good teacher and he's very fair and understanding. As long as you somewhat pay attention you'll do well in his class and on the regents.
good teacher and very funny. embodies everything brooklyn. that's wassup
He's a good teacher and gets to the point, but his tests are way too hard for me. I wish I knew it would be this way so I would have transfered out in the beg. Just pay attention, and study I guess. Good luck!
I had him for geometry last year. He gets to the point in class and he goes over anything anyone doesn't understand. His "..Because I'm such a nice guy.." jokes always makes everyone laugh. He throws in a few jokes every now and then to lighten up the class. I really enjoyed having him as a teacher. He's a really nice guy and attempts to understand his students unlike other teachers.
Mr. Natale is the best math teacher ever. He's always patient and helpful. Yoicks.
Emphasizes the important things, does a good job teaching
pretty bad teacher. he tries hard to teach - but it's juts not for him. you can do good in the class if you study - but good luck on that AP
I can't stand his class. Why does he need to repeat things over and over again with different wording? "dont do this till I tell you to. till you are ordered to. til you are authorized to."
Good teacher, explains everything well. Doesn't give much homework and tests aren't too hard. Very boring though.
boring. i almost fell asleep while he let us do... uh like 100 problems in the 10 minutes remaining. he is really confusing.
nice.. kinda borin n dun actually give a lesson or anything.. ez class
he is cool....n can teach....his class is mad easy.... n he is a good teacher!!
can't teach but tries. says "you must come to class on time or you must enter inconspiculously through the back if you are late." boring but tries to be funny. tests are like wagshul's, homeworks are like wagshul's... hmm, there's a pattern going on. just make your hw look pretty and he'll think you're great. if u don't understand stuff from the get-go, he tries to help u, but when a lot of ppl in the class don't understand... let's just say it doesnt look pretty.
Good calculus teacher, goes over things slowly to make sure u understand the stuff. Even though he doesn't give hard problems like Tao, his stuff builds u a very firm foundation. Very easy grader.
LMAO, his faces are hilarious. he cracks da class up even though he just gives us problems to do. he thinks we dont know a lot so wen we get something right, he over exagerates but dats alrite. he teaches alrite . hes a funny teacher
Good Teacher and funny. I got a 4 on the Calculus AB Exam. Thank you.
he's ok - just make sure that you spent a lot of time and effort in your homework andhe'll think that you're really smart
he doesn't explain anythign well, thinks hes cool but hes not. did all my hw and he passed me even though i failed every test new teacher is better this term
seriously, i luv this man.his work is easy, n hes just a nice man, u cud really tel, it jus makes u go, wow, this guy is just sooo great.
VERY COOL!! Hes not dat hard .. in fact he goes rlly ez on da students
whats with the faces. hes a nice teacher overall but picks favorites and its annoying because he's easier on them. always puts us on the spot tho im confused.
I have a lot of respect for Mr. Natale. He's tough but he IS a good teacher. You must be willing to learn in his class to pass w/ a good grade. Thanks Natale!
He needs permission for everything. He's too hard and no good and I got a low grade.
cool for his saying: "fungool!" but NOT cool for taking 15 points off my final average for lateness.
nice person, can't teach. tests are awful!! can't do his own problems, and yeah, he would fail his own tests
GUido! DOesn't know how to use a calculator! HOw can a calculus teacher not know how to use a calculator?
He cannot teach!His class is completely boring. He hardly knows how to do the problems himself and makes so many mistakes it confuses the class.Tests r too hard
hes an alrite teacher but isnt that good at teaching cal..he seems to be nice despite the other shell
Has a problem with Calculus.Shouldnt be teaching it. I m pretty sure that after taking his own test he would never get 100. Sometimes funny though.
funny guy, has a huge vocabulary and is a pretty good teacher just do your homework, make it look good, and do well on the tests.
cool guy good teacher funniest lines and expressions i don't know how anyone could hate him!!!!!!!!!!
my fav. math teacher in Tech!-good class particp. and u'll pass
You gotta start teaching more through explanation and less through examples.
bad personality, but teaches well even though he barely knows math himself,
awsome teacher...earned alota bigwords and got alot better in math
won't take time outta class to answer questions, hates latenesses
so boring...everyone in the first 2 rows are sleeping of half-awake
Does not know how to teach and loves to ruin people's grades
really good teacher, and also very funny with his big words
Funny rarely, very confusing, nice guy though, but fails a lot
he's not that bad, as long as you do his work and dont talk
