Is this the same Richard Pillion that was a math teacher in NewBerlin Pa At SUN Vo tech in the late seventies? If it is him he was the greatest math teacher ever! He made me love math and made learning it fun! Numbers were his friends! I had him for Algebra. He taught us to GRASP the subject.
As an adult teaching my son core math, Mr. Pillion was using those same principles 20 years ago. When I entered high school I was fortunate to have this man as a teacher. Testing was hard but passion was key. This teacher made learning math enjoying but challenging and gave birth to understanding key principles in mathematics that have served me well through my adult career. Truly a remarkable teacher.
Unquestionably brilliant. Endlessly entertaining. This man teaches math like he invented it. Don't expect a lecture- this is a performance. From his pretend contempt of the English Department to Silly Game Rules to subtle nuances like his hilariously deformed "Straightedge," Mr. Pillion has crafted a character that demands attention. The commitment that he shows to his role is completely endearing. If you have the opportunity, take every class that he offers.
I had Mr. Pillion in 1980/1981. He is one of the most memorable teachers I've ever known. I am very grateful for the excellent teaching and training that I received from him. I can still picture him putting the problems up on the board.
Be careful, he's crazy! He is amazingly smart but he talks and writes way to fast. His laugh is hilarious and he likes to talk to inanimate objects..... like lockers.
I was not good at Calc, I ended up with a D . I was really upset when I was placed in Caclulus in college, but now the second time around I am doing great in Analytical Geometry and Calculus 1.
Pillion is one of the few teachers that actually prepared me for College. I would reccomend him to anyone, even if they are worried about how they will do in his class.
Mr. Pillion is incredible! The class is difficult, being that he teaches calculus, but he makes it so anyone can understand it. You can't not look forward to his classes every single day.
Mr. Pillion is the best teacher i have ever had. His classes are really hard, but if you work on everything, tis a great experience. This guy is borderline insane.
loooove him!! never thought math could actually be fun, but he makes it so much fun. he should def. have his own tv show cause it would be 2 funny
absolute best teacher ever... IT'S A GREAT DAY FOR MATH!
Pillion's class is not easy by any means, but it is an experience in itself. This man should be teaching in college - he's that good. 2x2 should be 2 :)
Mr. Pillion makes math class fun. He is a great teacher and I could understand everything from the way he taught it. 2222222
Great teachers inspire students to achieve. "Learning is hard work" is a Pillion motto I still hold dear to my heart. Hence, Pillion is a great teacher.
The best teacher on earth...I'm still convinced. Should be a college professor...22222222
Pillion is incredible. He is the best teacher. He is so funny.
greatest teacher ever- he's absolutely hilarious plus he's brilliant
Mr. Pillon is a great teacer- its a great day for math!
