He may have done better in the previous years, but I feel like class with him is just really boring and unengaging. He just writes on the board and doesnt engage with the class. You have to be a genius to do good on his tests, and I doubt anyone in my class got a good regents score.

I love him!!! So he don't requires students to print out papers anymore, instead he prints it out for us, which is awesome. He teaches really well but his tests are hard if you don't study and pay attention in class. He teaches beyond what you need to pass the regents, but I don't really mind since he explains it so well. Best math teacher I had.

It's true about the constant printing. Better buy some ink while you still can. Otherwise his tests are pretty difficult.

Heavy paper and printer use, and 40 minutes of HW a day. All this could have been avoided if we just used the textbook.

A tree dies everyday from all the classwork sheets and homework booklets that students print out/make in this class. But on the bright side, Mr. M is a great teacher that makes us understand everything.

He is probably the nicest teacher you will ever have, just do his work and you'll get a 90 (which isn't a lot). Class is quiet and can be a bit boring though, but he is extremely helpful, just go to tutoring if you don't understand something.

He is hands down the most organized teacher I have ever had.He posts up the lesson worksheets on Moodle, and goes over the homework in class.Ultimately, you have NO excuse not to pass his tests/class and the Regent.He is always available for tutoring On the other hand, I wish he was a bit stricter with the class. Sometimes, rude students would talk back, and take away valuable class time.I would recommend that you respond to his questions in class and try not to be disruptive. amazing teacher:)

I'm so grateful I had Mr Matthews as a pre-cal teacher. After a horrible year of geometry, I thought I was just doomed at math. But he really does go out of his way to help out his students with all those handouts (you dont even have to bother picking up the textbook unless its for hw) I heard the math B regents was SO hard, but I did pretty well. His teaching is clear and his work-load is very fair and he's just a great teacher. Thank you Mr Matthews!

Pretty good teacher overall. Time was limited so he couldn't teach everything in one period, but he was an excellent tutor after school. If you have problems, go to tutoring and he will really clear things up for you. His tests increase in difficulty over time, but weren't too strenuous. However, I disliked his policy on homework, he would make a mistake about when homework was due but instead of allowing a grace period he just gave zeroes. Do the Problem of the Week and you should be fine.
