Math-15000 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

One of the best and most knowledgeable professor of Calculus. Very clear, knows the subject crystal clear and delivers it well to the students. Perfectionist, and wants his students to do extremely well. It's still calculus, so you will have to work for it, but I highly recommend taking his class, you won't regret it!

The best math teacher I've had by far! I had to drop calc last time because I couldn't understand it at all but even with a huge class Prof. Gentile made it totally clear. It's still a hard class but totally doable. Take him!

He really is a fantastic professor. He knows what he's talking about, and helps you understand the material. He gives you multiple chances to bump up your grade, helping you get an A in the class. I would definitely recommend taking him.

MATH 155 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

He is absolutely one of the best math professors Hunter has. While the material was difficult (as any calculus course would be), he made his expectations and the material very clear. He doesn't focus on tests that punish you, so much as reward you for what you know. His office hours are also great if you have any questions.

He is an absolutely amazing professor, you really cannot ask for anyone better. TAKE HIM. Although remember that the class material itself is relatively difficult, and he gives you all the opportunity and material to learn it!

MATH150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This is a professor that takes Calculus and deconstructs it in a way that makes it manageable to grasp the first or second time around. Clear, concise, and generous with his tests, he's the cream of the crop when it comes to professors. If you want him to explain something in detail, you'll have to visit him during office hours, but it's worth it.

He is a real educator. He takes his career seriously which benefits his students tremendously. He is outstanding at what he does and one of the best professors overall. He motivates students, builds their confidence and presents the material in a way that is pretty much completely understandable. He is available for all questions during office hrs

A girl from my class told me the first day of class the S. Gentile is the best math professor at hunter.. and she was absolutely right. He is VERY clear, LOVES his subject, LOVES his job, is a very cool guy and one of the MOST helpful professors I ever had especially when it does to a stressful class like calculus.

He's amazing,yes he's fast but he is clear. Come to class! Tests are totally fair & he is funny. He doesn't like stupid questions but still answers. Go to Dociani if you need help. HW is due a week after he finishes a unit. He is passionate and if you're good at math and go to class you'll get a minimum of A- Btw this was my first time taking calc

Math 150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

The best math teacher. Very rushed pace. Exams are light. HW/online quizzes are purposely made killller. His philosophy is "you learn math by doing, not on tests." (he's right) HW/quizzes are insanely difficult and time consuming. I once spent 8 hours on one quiz. Usually spent 2 hours on hw. Though plenty of extra credit. Helpful teacher, however.

HW's and Quizzes are just a diversion to keep you from preparing for his exams. Stick to the free textbook and lecture notes, the rest is just a smoke screen, but it's mandatory..

The hybrid class meets once a week so if your not a quick learner don't take it cause Gentile goes through the sections pretty quick. Hw and quizzes are mandatory. The first exam is a lot easier than the second. Meanwhile, the final is hard (Good Luck). Calculus is not easy, be prepared to put in a lot of time and you will pass. Pro txtbk is free!

He's the worse... Attendance, Homework, and chapter quizzes are mandatory, even if you've passed all you can still fail. Also, He enjoys marveling the complexity of his exams (Beware!). Btw he doesn't curve, don't believe the hype.

Took him for hybrid summer session.It was 6 weeks, 2x/week , 2 exams, online HW & quizzes. Aced the class after failing it twice with 2 other professors. Rushed alot and didn't really like answering questions since we had very little time, but he still taught well. He's one of the few Calc professors at Hunter w/ good reviews for a reason. Take him

He is the best math prof in Hunter, no doubt about that. Prior to taking his class, I read the review over here and I was not disappointed. I had 5 hour gap between my class because I really wanted to take his class.Trust me, it was worth it. He is the first teacher I've ever met who tries to make you understand math & he has a great sense of humor

Being this the second time I took calc I can definitely say Gentile made all the difference.His way of breaking down complex topics and simplifying them really made things better. He cares about his students and is considerate.There are times where he might rush a bit and be unclear. I highly recommend him!

Definitely one of the hottest professors at Hunter, but that's not all. He is a wonderful professor who sincerely cares about the subject he teaches, and he takes the class very seriously. It is a difficult class, but he is always more than willing to help a student in need. I've never had a better teacher than him. His looks are a bonus! ;)
