When I had Mr.Portmore, I found him slightly boring although his life stories were very amusing. He often spent most of the period talking about his life and I thought I wouldn't do well. Its very important to do the reading he assigns and answer the questions because those will help you on his exams and the regents if you're going to take it. Mr. Portmore is very caring and lenient, he does care about all his students and wants them to succeed. I did pretty well on the regents.
HE DOESN'T TEACH.
I love Mr. Portmore!
Honestly, he's not as good as you think he is. I went into Portmore's class thinking I was gonna ace the regents, but no. He talks about his life more than the actual material which is very annoying. We learned our last topic of Earth Science the day right before the regents. He's a DECENT explainer, but he's not that good at explaining. I asked a question about geologic history and he ended up talking about his life. His tests are very annoying too. Overall, I think he is overrated.
omg Mr.Portmore be ma helpful.. 4 my class he does give u home work ..easy 2 understand .. but the best part b that he gives u time 2 hand it in .. he toaly cool but hiz storys sound 2 good 2 b true
best science teacher i've ever learned from. plus he's really funny & nice. keep rocking!!
He's so boring and dull...even if you are an excellent student, you'll only get a 90 at most
Mr. Portmore was the best in earth science and in builders. I passed the regents with a 94 because of him. his class was easy fun and he taught me well
