I had mr power for math sophomore year. I was not naturally good at math. His class challenged me. I got a 99 on the regents. The discipline of doing all of the homeworks and the graded notebook was worth its weight in gold and in hindsight one of the best teaching methods I have ever come across. 20 years later I still appreciate this. Not to mention he delivered the lessons with enthusiasm and truly cares about the students- guarantee those who give him a low rating aren't working hard enough.
Awful teacher. Just doesn't help even when students ask for help if he doesn't feel like it.
I felt as though I did not learn anything with him. My tutor taught me everything and is the only reason that I passed the regents.
He is a terrible math teacher. Does not care if students understand the work or not and does not make it easy if you have questions because he makes you feel like you should know what he's talking about even though he has a lousy way of explaining it.
worst math teacher I've ever had, unclear of lessons being taught, assigns hw he only checks maybe 1 or 2 questions and moves on making it harder for students who don't understand topic at first. Majority of students doing awful and is the only class I've ever failed. If you don't get a tutor or teach yourself, you will fail this class.
He is a chill guy but he just isn't a good teacher. He assigns so much homework only to go over a few questions and he is very confusing when he attempts to teach. Self teaching is a must in this class.
good teacher. can be hard to follow at times but know the stuff just bad analogies that confuses the class
He really does know the subject he teaches very well, but he seems to have the idea he's reviewing it with us while teaching. He NEVER provides us with enough information to learn the material properly. The way he grades notebooks has no system to it, so its either perfect or u fail. Overall he doesn't teach very well and teaching yourself math is a must when you are in his class.
everyone didn't like powers and gave him attitude but hey i honestly think it was because hes a math teacher. i personally did very well in his class because he was helpful. sure he was TOO helpful (i
I don't have a huge problem with him. Don't rate the subject rate the teacher, yes geometry is hard... I hate the NB thing though...were not 5th graders u dnt need to grd our nbs anymore......
overloads with hw. doesn't explain the math properly. is very condescending with students, especially with those who ask questions he deems "silly." overall, a regrettable experience at molloy.
Extrememly sarcastic, doesnt love kids. Write down everything he writes, and study on your own. Not the best teacher but you gotta love his enthusiam for math. He loves the subject.
he's a good teacher. he has to go fast because he has to teach everything in time for the regents.
You teach to fast and you are't clear and u dont explain things properly and we need that so please change the way u teach
Funny talking guy semi-good teacher but tooooo fast. Sumtimes I think he even forgets what he's talking about. Does hereally have a collage degree?
He's extremely nice guy,and great track coach,but prett bad math teacher.He doesnt really offer to much extra help,and overall not that great a teacher.
hes a very good teacher. he's also a realy cool guy and i got nothing negative to say about him
Mr. Power is an amazing math teacher...he makes everything so clear.. he is also an awesome person...you cant hate the guy
Mr. Powers is freakin awesome. Best math teacher in the school and by far the coolest.
When I first had him for a track coach I hated his guts. Then I had him as a teacher and found out that he was a really cool guy. Really brings out the best in people.
Excellent teacher! I will never forget SIN COS COS SIN, COS COS SIN SIN Wickey Wickey.
Good teacher. I had him for accelerated math 3&4. Makes class fun. Didn't like me that much - I spent each class programming my calculator to help me on tests.
Never understood what was going on in his class. Barely passed his exam. Barely passed the Regents. Life goes on.
really good teacher, he could prob teach nethin if he needed to, i dunn why some ppl take his class tho
Great teacher always willing to help my favorite great guy
best math teacher ever! he's a bit too enthusiastic about math tho lol
good teacher..knows his stuff.... goes pretty fast in class
