If you’re not an independent learner, you should probably switch out of his class. The entire year I taught myself through Kirk Weilers videos from emathinstruction instead of petrillo’s, I found them much more helpful. Most of his students do not feel prepared for regents, but he’s an okay guy
He doesn’t know how to teach and excepts you to learn on our own. When it comes time to preparing for the regents, the practice regents tests look foreign, because he never taught anything. If you ever see him as your teacher on your schedule, SWITCH OUT IMMEDIATELY. Trust me you will feel very unprepared for the regents. Shout out to Kirk wailer for helping me this year.
He is honestly THE worst teacher I have ever had in my entire life. His teaching style is confusing and unessacary, and he's overall not very good at teaching. PLEASE switch out while you can, you will not regret it... unless you have a very good foundation for the class you're taking. If the curriculam is new to you in any way shape or form, good luck doing well on the regents...
At first, I was hesitant to get Petrillo but as the year is coming to an end, he has really prepared me for the regents and I have a good average in his class.
Just to shut down that comment below, took his class, aced the Regents. Really nice guy. Just be a decent human being, you'll get along fine. I hear he's a great coach too.
Awful teacher overall, doesnt teach his students at all , expects you to naturally know the concept of the unit and doesnt make aure everyone is on board witht he topic. Extremely confusing teaching styles, switch out while you can
Mr.Petrillo is a great teacher. He knows how to get along with his students while keeping the class moving through the curriculum, and on task. Take Financial Algebra- such a fun math class for seniors.
