I used to despise math, but he's made me love it now. His explanations are crystal clear and he's really patient with students. He does pick on students for answers, but he does it with the intent of helping you. And he's really patient when you don't know the answer. Very nice person and really knows what he's doing. Best math teacher I've had.

mr mitchell scared me so much at the beginning of the year but now i look forward to math and laughing for the whole class. he makes math really fun, but of course expects you to do your best.
@ the 40-year-old who's writing reviews about his teacher from high school : he probably failed you because you didn't try, get over it.
as long as you put effort into your work and USE THE MOODLE, you will do well.

Obsessed with the Harvard of the North (aka U of T) and will trash talk your university plans (and trash talk something about you in general) no matter what you do. Super enthusiastic and very dedicated teacher. MD is blessed to have him

AMAZING teacher. lots of work, make sure you pay attention and ASK FOR HELP IF YOU NEED IT. test and exams are hard, but he does such a good job of explaining everything that it doesn't matter.

Extremely hard teacher, but explains ridiculously well to the point I'd say that no other math teacher can explain better than he can. Makes math fun, but sometimes asking for help from him makes you feel stupid, but still insanely clear and great at explaining.

Mr. Mitchell is by far my favorite teacher of all time, better than McLaren, better than Thomas even, he keeps math interesting and is the coolest person in the world. AP calc with him this year was truly the most enjoyable class I've ever had in my entire high school career. Go Mr. Mitchell!

Mr Mitchell asked me to leave his Geometry and Discrete class becaue I was a 'failue' ( below 78% )... so I stayed there and passed just to bother him. Once he has decided that you're an example of 'failure', the only thing he'll try to make clear to you is how he takes his gamecube away from his grade 4 son fo being a 'failure' ( under 85% )

Good teacher but he picks favourites to answer questions, and they're the ones ending up getting all the marks. As everyone else said, spending way too much time on stupid "model" solutions instead of teaching us the real formulas and concepts.

Horrible jokes that are funny because they're just so bad. Connects almost explosively with some students, runs parallel to others and drives them insane. Tendency to leave the slow ones in the dust, but in return pushes the bright ones to new heights. You either love him or hate him.
