Mr Segal is an amazing teacher and coach. Friendly, always smiling, motivating and really cares for his students. Math with him was my best marks in high school. He helped me really understand math and motivated me to work hard and not to settle with marks in the 80's when I could achieve marks in the 90's. Thank you for being a big part of my life. I will always remember you.
Had him for gr10 math. Very clear and knowledgeable. He is fairly intimidating but means the best for you and answers questions to the best of his ability. Explains lessons very thoroughly with many examples. The beginning of the year review was amazing. In a single class, I feel like I've learned a week worth of gr9. There is a lot of homework and assignments, but as long as you pay attention in class and do them it will be ok. My average went from 80 in gr9 to 88 in gr10. Incredible teacher!
Outstanding coach! I never had him as a math teacher but he was the best coach I ever had. Extremely knowledgeable and patient. I earned an athletic scholarship because of him.
Mr Segal is helpful, friendly and considerate. He makes you work and you learn a lot. I always felt I could ask him any question and he always made me feel good about it. He was the best teacher and coach I ever had.
Outstanding teacher. Always available for extra help. Makes math fun and easy to understand. I always looked forward to his class. Take his class if you can.
Mr Segal is what every teacher should strive to be like. Compassionate, motivating, patient and caring. He spent countless hours working with my son to help him get the grade he needed in Calculus & Vectors. Because of this, my son was accepted into the Ivey School of Business. A goal my son has had since he started high school. If your children go to Markville SS, make sure they have Mr Segal as a math teacher. He is simply the best.
Thank you for taking the time after school and during your lunch to help me and Alfred. You made math come alive for us. I truly enjoyed your classes and always looked forward to them. Why don't you coach anymore? My brother said you were an amazing coach. Thanks for making math fun.
Hey its your best student, alex wilson. Math is my favourite subject because of you sir. thank you very much for an amazing grade 12 in functions math. it was the best. You were my favourite teacher and I am going to visit markville next year.
Mr Segal is extremely knowledgeable, kind, compassionate, and helpful. He went beyond being a teacher to help my son through a very challenging year. I can't thank him enough.
I would like to change my earlier rating. It was only a few weeks into the semester and I didn't really know Mr Segal. He is an amazing teacher. He really cares about his students. I'm glad I had him as a teacher.
Wonderful teacher. Always available to help my son, who has always struggled with math. This is my son's first year of great success in math, thanks to Mr. Segal. Students at Markville SS are very lucky to have such a caring and understanding teacher. I hope my youngest son gets the opportunity to be in Mr Segal's class. He exemplifies what all teachers need to be like.
Kind, considerate, patient, easy to understand, truly the best teacher I have ever had.
Mr. Segal is a very nice teacher; however, his method of marking is generally harder than all the other math teachers in the department (ex. some teachers will give u 2 marks for a question while he gives u 0). His tests are definitely harder than the other teachers as well as he likes to challenge students' thinking and make you apply and extend your knowledge. He is also very helpful when you are stuck on a question and is super clear. Definitely plays favourites though so be nice!
This man is insane. Plain and simple. So many other teachers deserve his position more than him. He was extremely aggressive and is unreasonable with his work expectations. He refuses to help if you ask questions and if you try to contact he sends back one liner emails. On tests you will lose mark on things that do not matter and are unrelated to test subject. Overall he is the worst teacher I've had in all my years of schooling.
Not a horrible teacher but I struggled a lot in his classes. Received my worst math grades in his classes and felt very stupid when I asked for help. He shows obvious favourtism to smart students which is not fair to other students. Good luck to anyone who has him, be smart.
Best math teacher ever
Gives no time between quizzes and tests. For example, Quiz on Tuesday and Test on Thursday, doesn't mark the quiz fast enough to get it back to you on Wednesday. How are you supposed to learn from mistakes? Usually gives the quiz back 5 mins before the Test and says to quickly look over it, unacceptable don't you agree?
Not a great teacher. Certainly plays favourites with asian students due to the fact that they do the best in his class. Praises people who receive 90's yet isn't willing to help others that are struggling. Had Mr. Segal for grade 10 and 11 math, decided to take Grade 12 Adv Functions and Calculus in summer school and night school, couldn't go through another year of Segal's teaching.
Mr. Segal is the best teacher I have ever had. Patient, helpful and very friendly. Always willing to help. Motivates his students and really enjoys what he does. I really enjoyed his class! He made ma
Mr Segal knows kung-fu , specializes in Flying Segal. But seriously good teacher, knows his stuff and if you put your time and effort, he will give you a mark you deserve and maybe even a boost after
when you use a different way to do the question, he always marks it wrong... and he doesn't teach much....
best math teacher and the most helpful. his thinking quesitons are hard though but he will definately make a great impact in your life.
Great teacher, you can understand and apply the concepts. Sometimes being harsh is neccessary. I will admit that sometimes the test will throw something never seen before-can be beneficial
Best teacher at Markville! Always helpful and always smiling. Cares about his students. Treats everyone equally. Excellent effort = excellent mark! I really looked forward to his class.
Mr. Segal is the best teacher I have ever had. He is always willing to help, always smiling and really cares about his students. Some students may not like him because they are looking for an easy gr
He is a easy/fair marker and will give you a high mark if you work for it. GREAT at teaching what you need to know. And very considerate. for homework checks and test signing is kinda strict
do not forcefeed students. do not force us to write journals a certain way,and take off marks for not wording it exactly like how you want it. idea was just expressed in another way. too unreasonable.
Thinks he's all that. He takes this "head of the department" thing way too seriously, but is ineffective. Learn how to spell man, and then talk.
Picks on people, doesn't wait for students to understand the concept, can be really mean, and doesn't know the limit to which you can jest at someone.
hes an alright teacher...but he expects us to know everything and doesnt take the time to make us understand...intimidating, but once u get to know him u know that hes the total op
Amazing track and field coach!!!!!! So fun and helpful!
Mr. Segal is a great teacher... but only good students will like him cause he's a fair TEACHER. Learnt so much from him, he's been a great influence. Thx Segal.
great teacher I wish he would stay after school for extra help.
mr segal is such a champ! he's the only teacher i know who drives a porsche...he makes fun of ppl but its all good...you go guy! X
Amazing teacher, wonderful attitude, and overall a good guy. Tries too hard to be hip but its funny!U GO GUY.. lol*raha*
great guy if you don't ever get into an argument or have behaviour problems with him, then he starts to get mean!
I like this teacher and i also like how he was very calm about things and willing to help people out. But of course this was years ago and who knows if he still is a calm and nice guy to have teaching you.
