I've been an educator at public and private middle and senior high schools, and two colleges. In addition, I'm an author: "A Teacher's Guide to America's Political System". I've taught American history, world history, government and Language arts at all levels. I utilize a Socratic teaching method at all levels. I also served as a political consultant to public officials and candidates, including the Governor of Pennsylvania and New York city and state officials and candidates.
First of all, I would like to say that Arnold Feinblatt was one of the greatest teachers I have ever had. This is including the teachers I had in Middle School, High School, and my college professors. Simply put: he is one of the best. One of the reasons why I know Arnold Feinblatt is a fantastic teacher is due to the fact that he can connect with every student he comes in contact with. He figures out ways in which to connect with students on more than just an academic level. He was able to turn learning and teaching into a personal quest to ensure that his students truly understand and appreciate the subject being taught. The other reason why I know he is a fantastic teacher and educator is because he cares. He truly cares about his students understanding the material being taught. Whether it is using an anecdote to communicate the material in a way that was easier for me to understand or simply just staying late after school to help breakdown the material. Again, simply put Arnold Feinblatt is the best. I am not sure how many other ways I can put it but I know he is the best.
As a former student of Mr. Feinblatt, I can testify to his love of teaching and his imaginative paths to find interesting and innovative ways to present his subject. A class taught by Mr. Feinblatt is never boring and often brings surprises and revelations to whatever topic is on tap for that day’s lesson. Speaking for many students in addition to myself, we always left his class with a greater understanding of the subject, be it American or world history, government, economics, political science or geography. He is able to communicate with his pupils and give them a better understanding of both historical perspective and current events, placing the topics in the context of their own lives.
Just last weekend, I celebrated my 10 year high school reunion, and Mr. Feinblatt was among the first topics discussed. Arnold has the singular ability to challenge his students with such charm and humor. For Arnold, I always did my best work and I always had such fun doing it. To me, he was not only an amazing US History, AP Government and Model Congress teacher, but also a mentor and friend. I simply cannot speak more highly of any other teacher in my academic career.
Arnold has an extensive amount of experience in teaching a variety of subjects – from History and Government to Economics. As a former student who has taken a multitude of his classes in high school I highly recommend him. He is a wonderful teacher and mentor who has a passion for what he teaches. Additionally, as the academic advisor for the Model Congress club in my high school, as well as my former teacher for U.S, Government he is also part of the reason why I work in government today!
Arnold has an incredible amount of experience teaching in a variety of impressive settings from NYC private school classrooms to prestigious tutoring companies. He is a natural teacher and clearly loves passing along his substantial knowledge of history and other subjects.
