His lack of empathy in insurmountable. He has reckless disregard for his students emotions, putting his own ego, sense of self, and state of mind ahead of his students. He genuinely doesn’t care for their success, I remember him openly telling my friends to terminate their friendship with me cause I was going to turn out as a “nobody”. He is an absolute disgrace to teaching and will do nothing but uninspired many young, excited minds from going into the field of mathematics.

Steve "inefficient" Madaris. Takes 19 years to complete one in class problem and 33232994949934 years to grade a test and then 193939393939393944 years to input them. First teacher in my life to blame his foot for not inputing grades. Nice guy but more of a college professor.

Mr. Madaris is honestly awful. He doesn't know what he's talking about and when he realises he's wrong he can't even correct himself and abandons the whole problem altogether. I feel like the more he teaches the more we get confused, and the more he confuses himself. When anyone tries to speak up and say that we don't understand what's going on, he get's really angry and yells at everyone. Basically, we never get anything done and he doesn't teach.

Im trying to be fair about Mr Madaris but he is not a good teacher. Its as simple as that. He gives no homework and when he does we never go over it. We do random lessons that end up confusing me more than before. If you have him try switching out.

Whenever he tries to teach the class anything, he has no idea what he is talking about. When confronted regarding this problem, he gets frustrated, claiming that the student is wrong to accuse him. Let me mention that this happened during a quiz as well. There was a problem on the quiz that could only be solved using a concept that would appear in the next section. When asked, he got frustrated, claiming that we should know how to do this question by now. Basically, he can't teach.

Okay, so math was my favorite subject until I had Mr Madaris - now I'm failing. Thing is I think he could teach well if he wanted to but it's like he can't even be bothered? And by the way if I wanted to hear about your wife I would have asked - think he needs therapy or maybe just a new job since he thinks our education is such a joke.

Mr Madaris is the worst teacher i have ever had in my entire ife. He ruined my life. i have to retake Algebra because of him and i have redly good grades. he failed me and constantly talked bad about students behind their back. He always tells us stories about his wife. I wish I had more than 500 characters to write my deep feelings about Mr. Madaris. He was an awful teacher and when we took his final he didnt teach us anything on it. if you get him. SWITCH SCHOOLS.

Mr. Madaris is the worst teacher i have ever tried to learn anything from. This guy talks about his ties, his personal life, his wife, and how he is related to the queen. For 20 minutes at the beginning of class we sit there waiting while he eats a box of donuts, and all the sudden there is a test!?!?! I did not know that, what is it on though, no one knows!!!! This "teacher" is not a teacher at all but a machine that makes your parents yell at you.

How this guy is still teaching, especially at Beverly, is a mystery to me. Avoid his class. Take ANYBODY else. He gives out A LOT of Low grades, even if you work hard. You also won't learn what you need to know because he does his own thing, teaching stuff that's not important, giving problems that are way too hard, and taking forever to let you know that you failed another test or quiz a month ago. Even with a good tutor, you could easily fail. Do NOT take him for ANY class !!!

he doesn't teach us anything and says we don't have anymore days to review for the final. also, he said that he might not even finish the lesson before the final so, we might not be prepared. literally the worst teacher i have ever had. he makes the excuse that he can't teach because of us but really, it's because of him.

Such a bad teacher. For example, he doesn't teach us ANYTHING and then blames us for not knowing the material. There are so many other reasons why I, as well as everyone else who's ever had him as a teacher, strongly dislikes him. Moral of the story... he's the worst teacher on the planet.

mr madaris is the worst teacher i have ever had. he doesnt care about his students and doesnt explain the lessons, and blames us when we get a bad grade. i suggest that if you have him you should switch out of his class asap. he constantly talks about his personal life which he thinks is more important than our learning. if you cant switch out of his class, then either get a tutor or learn the lessons on your own, or youre screwed.

AP Stats: just read and do problems in class and ask questions in class. Don't do homework at home. You will need to study for the AP exam though, because he is not good at explaining things.

if ur smart or not so smart: either way, ur screwed if you get this guy. Often, you'll be studying/teaching the material to yourself. If you ask him to find the answer to a problem, he'll ask "well, what do you think it is?" even thought its OBVIOUS you don't understand how to do the problem. He very rarely gets out of seat & tries to do problems on the overhead as rarely as possible. His class is only good for wasting time/learning life lessons, listening to jokes,etc but not for serious MATH.
