Easiest Teacher on the planet. He helps you learn biology from his own past experiences. He'll have fun all the time but if you cross that line and interrupt teaching he'll start making fun of you. The key is not to respond to what he says and just say I'm sorry, don't talk back or he will take off points for no reason. the test are a piece of cake, if you pay attention you'll get an easy A. Even though he doesn't use the textbook, it actually helps a lot.

Doc or dr. Tringali is not a very nice guy he calls kids out who don't do their homework and tells the whole class someone's grade weather or not they do good. Doc has no boundaries but he is funny and can get his point across rarely

As long as you don't interrupt the class often or fail to follow instructions (labs, homework, etc.) you shouldn't have too hard of a time in his class. He calls out people with low test scores (but doesn't say the score aloud and he sometimes does so jokingly). If you do well in his class, you will feel great for being called out for doing well. Recommended that you look at supplemental material (review book) in addition to his powerpoints.

Doctor Tringali is a okay teacher! I read the review before I had him this year and I was very scared! After a few weeks, I went to him personally and talked with him! I go to extra help very week and reach out to him when I am struggling. His tests are kinda hard you just need to re read his powerpoints and ask him questions! Also, if you are a normal human being then he will not pick on you! Just listen in class and you will understand!! I went from failing with 60's to now mid to high 80's!!

Doc is a legend. Super chill if you do your HW and don't talk in class. He's also funny when you're not the one being picked on. He is a horrible teacher though. He makes you print out 10 page PowerPoint's to review in class in which he takes at the most 15 minutes to go over all the pages. His tests are hard too. Some are easy but majority are difficult.

He tries to be funny but picks on kids and makes them feel bad about themselves. He doesnt really teach well. He also announces when you do bad on tests and dont do your homework. If you get him for bio or chem, switch out!! he isnt that hard but he is by no means a nice person and makes fun of his students

Constantly joking around and wholly unfunny, Tringali redeems himself through his knowledge of science. Ultimately, his strained attempts at humor and his bad-natured jokes at the expense of students makes learning under Tringali extremely unpleasant if informative.

He is a pretty bad teacher, but a really cool and funny guy. If you don't understand him when he teaches go up to him alone and he'll help you out.

He's funny, but he can't teach! He gives a lot of "gifts" which make it easier to do well in his class, but in the end, I don't know anything about biology!

Four words: Doc is the man. I can't keep a straight face anymore in class. He's too funny for his own good. We get into mock fights--SO funny. And he CAN teach. Kids who do badly just don't listen!
