I hated math before this class! But he really helped me understand it better! I wish I could continue to have him as my math teacher! He was very helpful and knowledgeable! If you can I strongly suggest taking him!

Toutonghi is a saint. I never used to like math, let alone succeed at it. His office hours are so helpful, and he is incredibly patient. Probably one of the best teachers I've ever had. I hope he teaches the Calculus series, or I might not do as well! Plus he has a great sense of humor, and will work hard to see his students (those who try) succeed

I thought I was getting a great teacher but wow was I disappointed. The way he talks to students is discouraging and his lecture is confusing. To him, his lecture is god. I've never disliked math like this. He does make himself available but if you give a good lecture in the first place, people won't need to see you after class! WE DONT HAVE TIME.

I should qualify the easiness score - Toutonghi's class is super-easy if you attend all classes. His lectures tell you everything you need for the tests and next courses. If you're struggling, show up to office hours. He's around a lot to help! I feel like I'm good at math for the first time in years. He rocks.

I love this guy! Toutonghi is a dynamic lecturer and he is very accessible. He holds office hours in the lobby and helps students that aren't even in his class. He loves to teach and he wants his students to succeed. I wish he taught the calculus series. TAKE HIS CLASS!!

I had Toutonghi for both 084 and 085 and absolutely love his teaching style. Attend class! TAKE NOTES!! Copy EVERYTHING he puts on the board, verbatim! He gives you all that you need to succeed in these classes, but you will work! He's very thorough, makes himself available, and is very clear in his instruction. Would take again! Highly recommend!

His teaching methods are one of the best Ive come across. He makes math make sense. By mid quarter his class is still as full as it was in the beginning. He is a great teacher. I highly recommend him especially if math is not your strong suite.

I have had Toutonghi twice and am so glad that I stayed. He really is a great teacher and really helpful. He helps walk you step by step to solve problems and helps you to understand how to solve them. As long as you copy his notes, attend class, do your hw, you will be fine. Would love to have him again as a teacher.

Second time taking him and he was a good teacher. Same thing -- he makes himself available so getting a good grade is up to you. Math 85 is a lot harder than 84 -- attendance is important. Make sure you come to class, he's a lot less likely to help you if you have poor attendance.

Toutonghi is one of the best teachers i've had especially when it comes to math.Copy his notes verbatim, do the assignments &you will be fine. He is also readily available. Lenient of turning hw and his quizzes are simple just review daily. Exams are straight to the point also. Review, review, review!

He's the most accessible teacher I've ever seen, he's always in the Science/Math lab helping students. If you put in time he will help you pass. He's very friendly but if you have a lot of questions ask durng lab hours, he gets irritated if you slow the class down. He's a dead ringer for Allen Covert, whose always in Adam Sandler's movies.

I had Toutonghi for 081 & 098. He truly is amazing!He set the framework for me in 081, was amazing in 098, which really helped with my pre-calc and calc classes that I took next. He's ALWAYS there before class to help. When he even sees you studying in the lounge he approaches you &asks you how math is going for you. AMAZING!

I've always struggled with math, and in particular, algebra. Toutoughi is the first instructor who has helped me truly ENJOY these classes. I haven't had to get outside tutoring because he offers so much help before each class. I highly recommend this instructor!

Great teacher. He really tries to explain things in different perspectives in order to help people who understand math in different ways. Always willing to help when you ask, and will answer questions when you ask. Is also totally open to feedback, questions, and opinions on material during class.
