I didn't have him for hs but I took his summer physics course at Hunter College. He is very passionate about physics but I feel he is either bitter about teaching or is tired. I would not recommend his intro college course to anybody who didn't take hs physics. He has very antiquated methods of teaching. When you don't get something or when he thinks you don't get it, he makes it very clear to the class that you don't get it. When he was absent, he gave work to do that he never went over.
People have very mixed opinions about Marx so I'll try to keep this as unbiased as possible. Marx teaches like a college professor and not a high school teacher, meaning, he'll expect you to learn the bulk of the material yourself and be able to share what you've learned in class. Pros are that he'll help you if you ASK him to and he always tries to give his students the bigger picture, cons are that he's EXTREMELY frustrating, stubborn, and astoundingly inept with Pupilpath grading.
In the Pass Semester i have Learned Nothing NOTHING. From this guy he dose the know how to teach and I thank GOD that I got put into Franco's class since if I'm not I would FAIL the REGENTS I pray once again that he will retire in June cuz if he dosent. Many other Students will fail the regents due to him and if your reading this Marx Please in god's Name LEAVE THE SCHOOL don't drag others down God Ble
ss And God's Speed
It is a sad story. At first, I really saw something special about him. Passionate, said he wants to inspire, but he has failed.Not only can he not teach (though he knows his subject) and can't use pupilpath, he is VERY VERY disrespectful. He is just nasty. I am a good student, and the number of times he disrespected me is a disgrace. Thanks god he is retiring in June. A more deserving teacher should have such a great job position and an opportunity to change the world. He is a disaster.
Best teacher I ever had. Anyone who complains just doesnt want to study. He encourages students to study and do better in class, he is the kind of tescher who prepares students for real college work. If you are crying about him bow, then dont even think about going to college, because it will be a lot harder there.
he doesnt teach he shows a bunch of things and never explains and when you ask him to again he just shows
The following is just one example that I have in a box of literally hundreds
Teacher- So you bring this arrow here and that line there, and maybe another circle here... and there you go! That simple!
Kid- But why, where, how, when, and what?!?
Teacher- THAT. DOESN'T. MATTER.
SORRY JUST RETIRE. Stop ruining the students lives and just go home. You're done teaching. You cant teach.
WORST TEACHER IN THE WORLD. YOU WILL LEARN ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
great teacher....ideals are strange in some ways,but none the less a great mentor. this year he has become more frustrated with my class. but ive certainly learned a lot in his class and hope to win the Intel competition this year
If you think hes a good teacher, then congrats because you're probably a genius for being able to learn anything from this man. He brought down my whole average and plays favorites. He does know A LOT, but that doesn't make him a good teacher. I learned nothing from this man and wasted a year in his class.
i think he's a good teacher. he always tries to make his lessons interesting by showing the class interesting experiments and by telling cool science stories. he puts an effort into making his lessons interesting nd unique!!!!!
He is the BEST teacher. I don't care what everybody else says. He cares about his students and wants them to succeed.
Had him for research and Ap. He teaches more on a College level and expects u to do majority of the work on your own. He can be a bit paranoid at times but he's not that bad.....
Very lenient grader and excellent teacher. Really cares about his student especially if they show an interest in the subject. Really a pleasure.
As the "majority" said, smart but lakes ability to teach at high school level. Still, helpful and talented. Nobody can be like Feyman and Moring.
I must say that I did not learn enough physics in his class. I ended up hardly going...
He is a smart man but he really does have problems presenting his materials.
Great Teacher,Had him for 2 years (physics&AP). Made me realize my potential, enreach my life. Lets you learn to your best potential. Put your mind to it, and you will love his cls
I don't know what you're talking about. I had Mr. Marx for a whole year of physics and he was great. I really learned to enjoy physics and he is a wonderful teacher
Mr. Marx would be perfect if he was a college proffesor, he expects way too much from high school kids. He's really nice after all his yaping.
I love Mr. Marx. I had him for a long time already and think he is a wonderful teacher.
He doesn't explain any of the problems you go over. He skips right through them. Sure he is lenient at times, but most of the time he explains things horribly
Hey, I dont know what ya guys talking about, but I have him for lab, and so far, he's a really great person, and pretty good teacher too.
i dont understand why everyone thinks he is a bad teacher, he is very lenient with marking tests, and he explains it well, and he's a nice guy...
I hated physics before I had him as a teacher. Interesting lessions and easy tests. Gave me an E after getting 3 S's. BEST TEACHER OF ALL TIME!!!
Very dedicated to his work, involves himself to try to help each student. However I do not believe he has the talent of teaching, but is still a very smart man.
Interesting guy.. but awful teacher, expects students to know without him teaching the material.
Quizzes?? what to test on, man, even on the first week of the cycle?? we learn nothing and having a quiz?? give it back to yourself and test yourself.
NICE PERSON BUT NOT A NICE TEACHER. HE CANT TEACH. SPECIALLY NOT PHYSICS. I WANT TO TAKE AP PHYS NEXT YEAR BUT IF HES TEACHIN IT THEN IM DEFINETLY NOT TAKIN IT
oh, come on, people, he's not that bad! in fact, i like him. he's cool!!!
I like him a lot. Respects you and gives a lot of make up opportunities.
