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.
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.
He's really smart and funny. He's knows math very well but hes not that good at explaining things. He would make a good philosophy teacher.
He tries to make himself look like Einstein and Einstein is my favorite, So he is my favorite!
I don't know why but I like this guy. And I got A in his class. Just do your home work, ask questions and be polite in the class. He'll be so easy. I'm in pre calculus now and I still use his algebra notes.
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.
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 !!!
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.
Intersting guy. But don't take his class unless u don't mind teaching yourself everything and spending endless nights studying only to receive a barely passing grade
This is a message to Mr. Madaris: I beg you PEASE try to be a little more sympathetic to your students. We are struggling so much in your prob stat class and all you do is rant about your personal life, while every single student is failing stressing out like crazy just to pass your class. You were never helpful and never have I understood a thing you have taught to us because 1) you go off subject every 1.5 seconds, and 2) YOU MAKE LEARNING MATH THE HARDEST THING IN THE WORLD. i want to cry.
horrible at teaching, but i actually enjoyed his class. if you have him, get a tutor because you wont learn a single thing. he's really nice though, just get on his good side! hes fun to talk to
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.
Mr. Madaris, you need to work on explaining things so that everyone can understand them. You go too fast, when we're all lost and confused. That's not helpful at all. You are funny though.
Not a good teacher, but gives you a little taste of college. Does not do a good job teaching and is in denial about how bad of a teacher is. Very strict with everything and rarley compliments people.
great guy.. great personality.. read your chapter and understand the questions and youll get away with an A..
Madaris is a really nice guy. He gets off topic and blames the class on falling behind. He knows his stuff but he gets lazy to teach sometimes. But when he does teach he does a good job
Mr. Madaris would be awesome in a Life Lessons course, not Math. I often teach myself 2 weeks of material in an hour before a test, and I passed. Requires a lot of self-discipline, you've got to work.
Hes a good guy. He might seem like he doesn't care but he does
HE is a great guy, but his class is tough. Though, if yo do not do the homework you will fail!!!!
People hate him and think he's a bad teacher because they're too lazy to do the homework and pay attention. Be responsible and ask questions when you need to. He teaches, dude.
everyones sayingggg how hes a bad teacher :[ i loved mr madaris when i had him 9th grade thoughh. even though his class isnt easy, if you know the subject well and pay attention, then you'll do well
i have never scored so badly on my star testing...he does not teach at all
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.
you'll get off topic a lot, he's a funny guy. You might learn stuff in that class, but it WON'T BE MATH. He is not dependable, so don't try asking him for help cuz you won't understand a thing he explains to you anyway. Lazy guy who sits on his stool all day.
He is ok teacher. His tests are kind of unclear and sometimes not very well organized class. But he seem like nice teacher overall.
he's really not THAT bad. just know what you're doing in class. do your hw and u'll be fine. u'll probably end up teaching yourself though. he kind of tries too hard to be funny...ok guy though
worst class & teacher I've had, he doesn't teach (He starts "teaching" at the bell) and spends the majority of the class talking about his personal life
oy,how did I get into his class?he doesnt really teach the subject and goes off on the most RANDOM topics ever(cant give them away or else he'll know) and now Im teaching myself the subject, arrghhhh!
WORST LUCK!!! i chose him because i didn't know who to choose.... WORST TEACHER EVER!!!
even though my ratings are kinda bad..i think mr madaris is an amazing teacher!-- he might be lazy and he might not "teach" the material..but he will always help you if you need it. I'm glad to say i have an A in the class! and well..it's because i go to him for help sometimes..he's just really nice about that kind of stuff and will always help.. i reccomend him
Doesnt teach. Gives us hw then after the hw is due he teaches us the material. Puts stuff on tests that have never been taught.
just a bad teacher in general. one of those teachers who hates kids and hates his job. aviod getting hin as much as possible.
one of the worst teachers I've ever had-he does not know how to teach and takes it out on his students.
He is a funny guy, very witty.Cant teach to save his life.I'm in his IAT class and the material isn't that hard but he makes the tests extremely hard.
mr.madaris is a nice gut but he is a horrible techer.......it doesnt seem like he wants us to understand the material.....hes juist tooooo arogant
is an easy class, but you have to teach yourself or get a tutor. He spends too much time on discussing bulletins, and how he got to school that morning.
I basically taught myself both geometry and IAT with him as my teacher. But if you do have questions he can answer them most of the time.
He blames the class for his inability to teach us ANYTHING. His class was the most frustrating I've ever taken. At least he knows about SAT's.
This guy is the worst teacher. He has no idea how to teach. He takes for ever to give tests back. DON'T TAKE HIS CLASS!
I took him during summer school a couple of years back and he's a pretty good teacher, but I've heard that he can be quite difficult...
i don't get math but he's pretty cool.nicer than most math teachers for sure
