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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.
