Oct 25, 2014 He is an amazing teacher. However, he's someone who won't spoon-feed material to you. He will show you things exist and expect you to meet him half way and do some work because he understands that there is no better way to learn than by doing when coding. I had him for five semesters throughout my time in Stuyvesant and there is no other man like him. If you have the pleasant opportunity to take his course, consider yourself blessed. Flag Rating

May 24, 2012 This man made me love Computer Science. He's funny, interesting, passionate, and extremely competent. He'll not only teach how to program, but also show that it's cool to be a CS student. Very chill teacher and will make class very fun for his students. Mr. Zamansky, or Z, as we call him, is the epitome of the type of teacher you'd expect at a school like Stuyvesant. Flag Rating

Sep 09, 2011 Mr. Zamansky is among the best teachers I have ever had. He's one of those types who, although has his random tangents, he knows how to get back on topic and teach his class. Very funny, relaxed, and Flag Rating

Mar 07, 2010 Cool teacher, knows his material. But if you don't have a decent understanding of cs going into his classes (ap and beyond), you'll be totally lost. Seems to play favorites. Flag Rating

Oct 19, 2006 Doesn't exactly teach. If you sit in the back of his room, you can't see anything he does on the main computer at all unless you move up, which when you actually get back to your seat, he already typed another page of code. Flag Rating
