Love Mr. Stoenescu! I had a bit of a rough start in his class, but he's really helpful and expects you to improve. His tests are long and kinda difficult,but FAIR. All the material in the test has been covered in class.He's also really good at explaining concepts and and strategies. He's not one of those "learn my way or die" teachers,he accepts and presents alternative solutions shown to him by students.He's challenging, but really worth it! He's up there w/ Mrs. A in Stuy's best math teachers.

He's very knowledgeable and funny. However, he's really intimidating since you're not sure when he's joking or not and can be extremely serious when he needs to. He cares about his students and advised me not to take so many classes when I seem to be needing help. His tests are not as hard as Avigdor's and he's more lenient.

I had him for math team, and honestly, he's awesome. He is very organized and a great teacher. Will explain the hardest topic ever to you and make it look like a piece of cake. He always tells us how bad he is in algebra, but he's obviously lying and just has a great sense of humor. Also he doesnt give homework in math team. Yay mr. Stoenescu

Had him for freshman math team, trig honors, and ab calc. Doesn't give homework in math team and is fairly easy in ab calc, but very difficult in trig. Teaches well in all three classes though.

A lot of teachers at Stuyvesant HS try abstract methods to teach, and with few exceptions, usually fail. This man does it the traditional way, while still being moderately entertaining.

Laughably bad teacher. He's extremely arrogant and doesn't have much regard for his students. If someone doesn't know how to do a problem, he makes fun of him/her. (and not in the amusing way. He makes you feel like a fool.)
