Some of my peers were talking about him recently and we all agreed in saying he has been the best Math teacher we ever had at Power. He is also a cool guy. He includes history of math and tells stories that are interesting. Thanks sir!!

I had Bissada for Functions first semester and then for Calculus 2nd. His lessons are really clear and he is great at explaining. He is one of the best math teachers at Power. His tests can be challenging though. He is funny and makes class interesting.
I like the date at the beginning. Not the same routine. I think he has really prepared me for university. You rock sir!!

Tells too many jokes and wastes his time trying to impress popular students. Also, when we have more than one example he will start with the last one since it is already on the board, as he is too lazy to reteach the entire lesson the way it was supposed to be taught.

Very unclear with explanations (and unsure of his own work) and wasted the first 10 minutes of every class with a bad pun related to the date. Also made a lot of jokes and was the only one to laugh at them.

Not the best teacher. If you can grasp concepts easily, lucky you. But if you have one part you're unsure of, he'll explain it the exact same way...he won't try to explain it to you in a way you'll understand....my mark dropped 10 percent from the year before to his class. (I had him for gr 11 IB data management). Now i'm in a different teacher's class and my mark has risen once again. not very clear, he assumes you already know everything. I suggest another teacher (i.e. Benincasa)

Horrible Teacher. Assumes everyone understands the material and he is never there for extra help. It is clear he doesn't care about his students; every time someone asks a question or wants clarification, you would hear a sigh or an expression of annoyance. He doesn't go that extra mile to help his students understand, rather he puts a bare minimum effort into achieving understanding and clarity (at least in the 3 classes I've had with him). Many of my peers would strongly agree.

He absolutely ruined my life I can not being to explain how much i regret not switching out of his class. In grade 10 ib my math average was a 97 with another teacher and in grade 11 ib my mark dropped over 20 percent with bissada. I tried just as hard, did all my homework,my mark wasnt inflated before because all the ib classes write the same tests but his teaching was so incredibly horrible. Most days he wouldnt finish the lesson and just leave..I hate math now because of him

This is the worst teacher i have ever had, hes not useful at all, i struggled in his class with his confusing methods of teaching, when i went for help he was too involved in field hockey to give me the time of day to help me out, even when my parents and i had a meeting with him he still pretty much told them the same thing as me on how he isnt available for help and that i shud probably find a tutor. my parents were enraged, so he is the worst teacher ever, DONT EVER SIGN UP FOR HIS CLASS

Mr. Bissada is one of the best math teachers at Power. Though his test are challenging, he makes you realize your full potential. His lessons were very thorough, and he always takes up homework. His exam was very fair, and he marks fairly. He's a great guy, great jokes, and an awesome math teacher.

he seems like a nice guy but i don't think his teaching skills are all that great. after teaching IB, he assumes that everyone not in IB is just as smart or has already learned everything. basically he teaches very briefly and assumes you know, or should know, everything already.
