As other reviewers have said, Mr. Catalano turns a boring class into a meaningful and entertaining class. If you simply pay attention to his lectures and do the assigned homework, you will pass his class, and the regents, with an A. I'm now studying chemistry at the college level. Now that I look back on Mr. Catalano's Chemistry class, I realize how well it prepared me for University Chemistry. Great teacher, great person, insanely intelligent guy.

Mr. Catalano is such an awesome dude!! I had him for chem and this year for physics as well. I have a hard time grasping the material however, but the fact that he's such a cool guy makes up for it!

Very Good teacher for chemistry. If you take him for physics be prepared to delve deep into complicated material not covered by the other sections. Cool guy and very helpful when u need it.

Catalano is a great teacher. He's helpful, knows his stuff solid and truly believes in his students. His class is time intensive for sure, but if you take the time, the AP Chem is easy as pie.

he is awesome, sometimes corny jokes, but he's a good guy and he gives mandatory extra credit so even the lazy kids have to do it, it's easy to pass (just copy the homework)
