Teaching is a dynamic process of interaction in which individuals constantly work together according to the situations and objectives that must be fulfilled. Methodologies that a professor uses, moreover the personality traits, self-efficacy, and attitude towards teaching directly contribute to the fulfillment of educational purposes. This research paper aims to put forward the impact that the personality of a Mathematics professor has on delivering the subject to the students. It focuses on some important character traits such as the willingness for mutual cooperation, sense of humor, empathy, motivation in learning, discipline strategies, objectivity, effectiveness, and efficacy. Due to the pandemic situation that we were facing while conducting this research an online questionnaire was used to get us to the findings. This research was conducted on a group of 220 university students from different faculties and different study years in North Macedonia. The focus is more on the students from the University of Tetova and the South East European University. In the questionnaire, students were asked to express their experiences related to Mathematics professors starting from elementary school to university. Statistical processing of data enables us to conclude that professors of Mathematics are motivational, a trait which is in correlation with creativity, variety of approaches during the teaching process, respect of thoughts and ideas of the students, and the willingness of professors to clarify the uncertainties encountered by students (Pearson correlation coefficient). The most important results of the survey proved that pedeutology is seen as a crucial factor when learning Mathematics.
