Can teach, but honestly if you are somewhat good at math you will see he is not super knowledgeable. This guy always messes up and needs Dulmage to him help out. Pretty questionable person, treats students with heavy favoritism. He will only like you if you are smart and told me I would be a failure which no teacher should do... Seems to hurt his ego when I'm doing well at Waterloo math and came back to visit.
This teacher has charisma like no other teacher i've ever had... he can say the worst jokes and you will still pay attention to every word he says. Definitely not an easy marker, the first few tests will be a struggle if you are not used to his format. 8/10, for now, I may take another course from him in later years.
Maybe a bit gender bias but he teaches very well. I'm a male and I had an overall positive experience in his class.
Mr. Eisen is the BEST math teacher I have ever had!! He is funny(although his jokes are a bit lame sometimes), helpful and he is definitely a mathematician. Mr. Eisen gives challenging tests but they would be very interesting and worth to do if you are really into math and you find math fun.
I had Mr. Eisen in the late 90s for various math course. He discouraged me and even told my parents I shouldn't take advanced math courses. Well good thing I didn't listen to him as I went off to successfully earn a bachelor of mechanical engineering and I have been a practicing professional engineer since 2009.
He is a really nice guy, and I have no doubt that he is extremely knowledgeable in what he does. However it becomes quite obvious really early on, on whither he likes you or not.
Cool dude, as long as your incredible at math or don't care too much about marks, it's totally worth it. Lots of lame jokes and interesting math that has nothing to do with the curriculum.
Sick teacher! His cheesy jokes keeps the class awake and running!
BEST TEACH NORTH AMERICA, its not everyday you will find such a good teacher. You don't get bored during his lectures and he cracks you up.
he's awesome! always so happy! math is a boring subject and you can't afford to have a boring teacher - and he's got the fun for sure!
Mr Eisen is, hands down, the best teacher I've ever had. He's just an amazing teacher, he explains everything so thoroughly and so clearly that you're just amazed that math can be so understandable and even fun. Heck, he made me love math and I was never a big fan. He's a really nice and good person, too. He cares a lot about his students, which is why he has extra help everyday and he wants everyone to succeed. Yes, he's rather strict but it's for our good to build good habits. A+++
Great teacher. However, tests may be challenging and his marking is strict. Doesn't really favour girls - just jokes around with them.
Goods: He lets us eat in class. Bads: This is an enriched MATH class, not english. Why do we have to write an essay about Steve Jobs? He teaches okay but his expectations are way up there and it is really hard to reach. If yo
he is a very hard teacher to suit to. he expects the students to right exactly what he wants; he takes marks off for not having parallel equal signs. if youre in grade 12 in need of good marks, he's definitely not the right t
Really nice, likes to tell lame jokes a lot, thinks he's really funny while he's not >.> His teaching is easy to understand but his tests are really hard!!!
He's more picky than a mid-aged women in a grocery shop... fairly committed to helping students though... props for tat.
great enriched class!!! truly enjoyed the course!!!!!!!!!!
Not sure about the past, but I have him this semester and he really tries to help! He gives a positive learning attitude and is good at teaching. He's better the most math teacher's at AY.. :D
Although he failed me for Grade 11 math, hes a wonderful teacher, from him i understood everything i just never did my work. Glad to have him for grade 12 functions next semester. awesome teacher.
Ok to all the haters out there... Mr. Eisen is a wonderful teacher, so stop hating! He teachs very well and he does offer extra help. He's very humorous and nice too! I don't get why you have to write bad things about him...
He is a great teacher and explains everything very well. He's very enthusiastic and fun teacher. I definately enjoyed his class. He's one of the best teachers in AY but he just marks too hard.
He's a good teacher overall but he marks test very strictly and takes lots of marks off for no reason.
He is a good teacher overall, but in students' eyes he does have favouritism to certain people & treats others like unfairly e.g Cinderella<Prince<Step sisters. No motavational speech except "I Don't Think You Should Be Here"
i think that mr. eisen is a very good teacher. he explains everything very well. hes tests are not hard at all if u studied like ur suppose to for any other subjects. but the jokes are not funny at all lol...
He is the best teacher ever. He spends half of his lunch time to give extra help if you need. He is funny and tells good jokes. l love him so much. thanks Mr.Eisen.
He's a really nice and goofy person. but that doesnt mean he's easy, he's one of the harder teachers in ay...but i do enjoy his class, pretty entertaining! Well, I guess u just do what u have to do...do ur hw everyday!
He is the BEST math teacher I had in AY! He is very cool for he has facebook and he dressed up as Spiderman during Halloween! fair maker!
Mr. Eisen is a Funny, Cool, nice guy! He always takes the time to say HI in the halls and makes sure he remembers your name...I've only had him as a Sub...But He is the best!
Mr. Eisen is an awesome person and a fabulous teacher. His classes are interesting, hilarious, and easy to follow. Plus he genuinely cares about his students.
he's a very good teacher, just pay attention in his class and you'll be fine. ;)
he wont give you all he got if you are a boy.....dont ask him questions on test if you are a boy..........he is so discouraging..but he knows life
he is the most egotistical person I have ever had the displeasure of meeting. he accused me of not trying hard enough when he knows very well i came for extra help. he used to like me until he found out that im bad at math.
this you want to take his class..definately be a girl...he is not for guys for sure!
He's a good teacher, even though sometimes the jokes can be corny but he's still a very good teacher.
VERY impatient with guys and the people that aren NOT doing good in math. Weird eh? I thought teachers are supposed to help the people that are getting low marks
Mr. Eisen is not that bad as many people have said below. He's a really nice person, and makes everything smooth with his jokes. Very helpful too and takes the time to listen.
acts really nice to those take university-preparation math, nasty and impatient to his applied math class
Only helpful if your are a chinese girl. If you are a guy, try to stay on his good side, or else you are REALLY screwed.
clear but not very helpful at times. he teaches well, but has very little time for the guys in class. as someone said, hes very good if you're a chinese girl in one word: biased
He's good at teaching but needs to be less discouraging
I love this man. He tries to make math entertaining by telling corny jokes. He even had his wife bake the class muffins.
Mr. Eisen, is the best teacher ever. He is very helpful, explains things very clearly, and very understanding. =)
He's really nice...if u wanna do good in his class...listen to him...
a very nice teacher who really knows his stuff. you are really lucky if you have him for math.
nice teacher, definitely biased (just get on his good side and you'll be fine). AYJ has the finest math department though.
very good teacher. Always wakes me up in the class. Sometimes perfectionist, but ish ok..
Great teacher! He keeps the class entertained, and u can never fall asleep in his class. Jokes are kinda corny~ Likes to raise ur mark if u do well on the exam.
bad breath, corny jokes, mean, strict, discouraging, what more can i say?
haha i love his jokes even though they are corny; but it's hilarious after u've been learning math for five minutes; don't know if he's hard but from others, ya
he was an awful teacher, he was one of the worse teachers ever and the most discouraging teacher i have met
appreciate his sense of humour and he'll luv u. in other words, laff @ his corny jokes. he's an awesome teacher. extremely fair.
Too much emphasis on form and perfection.Pretty difficult to get a good mark in his class. But it does prepare you for the next year to do math precisely.
STRICT!!! always seek perfection, well, we are not perfect. So avoid him if you wanna get a good mark unless you are an extremely hard worker or a genius.
A TEACHER WITH A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOUR! VERY INTERESTING PERSON! ENJOY WORKING WITH HIM!
Nice person, ok teacher, bad mathmatician. Not that he doesn't help, he is not capable of
He is a good teacher. But please stop trying to be funny, can't stand it.
mr. eisen's great ^__^ i'm interested in math cuz of him... glad he teaches in AY XD
he knows we're writting him. but i still wanna say, ur voice is..really..special
pretty good teacher, but i have to agree he favours girls
mr.eisen is nice teacher~~his daughter is so cute^^i still remember
Yeah, he only likes girls, but if you're a girl, he's clear, nice and easy.
