He has favorites and wastes the whole class period talking about his daughter petting cows and calling "less knowledgeable" students stupid. Too fast paced and when I ask a question always says "good" and changes subject. Never tells us when tests are. Even when I pay attention I'm confused, and he doesn't help. A lot of homework too.

He's a bad teacher. He always boasts about his life & loves the smart kids & hates the kids wh don't understand. The thing is that he doesnt explain how 2 do stuff so U have 2 gte help @ home. We waste most of class w/ mr litvak bullying kids like calling them stupid or dumb. if someone says im confused he says thats good that you have questions and changes the subject. he also teaches super fast when he actually does teach plus he never tells us when the tests R & he gives students answers

Do not like him at all!!!!! He is the worst teacher & I dread his class every day!! Hes not clear at all & gets off topic. WHen I ask questions or say i'm stuck he says thats good & doesn't help me. He disrespects students & thinks its funny. He also expects u 2 learneverything on ur own & doesn't teach anything! ALl our tests are unexpected. He doesn't teach anything!! the class is basically a waste! HE also always singles out certain students and has favorites. Unfair don't reccommend AT ALL!!

It's very difficult when he explains something. It is not my teaching style, but I would see how the "more knowledgeable" students would succeed with him. But, for me, even if I pay attention, I cannot understand a thing. It is also very fast paced and there are always pop quizzes. I mean, he tells us there's a quiz coming soon but never tells us when.

Ok, Litvak is absolutely crazy. Be prepared to suffer for 2 or more years in his class. If you're a favorite... be prepared to be praised to the highest heavens. My arm died from raising it without being called on. seriously.

Had him for the past 2 years, and now currently in Geometry-I guess I could say he is one of the least favorite of my teachers- I normally love them. He has TONS of favorites, is very confusing at times, and the fact that he doesn't teach from the textbook makes him very unpredictable. One time, I didn't understand something, so I asked a question, and he disregarded me and made me ask another student... one of his favorites, might I add. -_- Good luck...

Litvak is not my favorite teacher. He eats in class, he curses, he makes things difficult to understand, and he has favorites. He doesn't inspire his students to learn math, and he makes fun of those who want to work with computers. Not good teacher.

Mr. Litvak does show favoritism, but he always pushes us to learn more. He wants us to go to math camp over the summer! I have learned a lot from him. Mr. Litvak=hysterical; class=very interesting. ATTENDANCE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING OF THE DAY;)

Mr Litvak is one of my favorite teachers. Although it's scary to ask questions (I asked once and still didn't get it, so he began to roll his eyes and sigh), if you have a friend or friends in your class, have them help you ad help them back. He is a really funny teacher and I feel like I've learned a lot and he constantly goes back to old material (I'm in Geometry and on every quiz/test here is a little Algebra)
