Mr. McNamara is one of the best teachers I've had. VERY knowledgeable, will always help out, a bit intimidating, but a very nice and caring person. Teaching is very effective.
Really unfortunate that he retired.
Happy retirement sir
An amazing teacher. It is because of him that I began to understand math so much more clearly. Yes it will definitely help if you do your homework but you should be doing your math homework with any math teacher, no one can help your skills if you don't help yourself. He is extremely intimidating but is an open book, he rarely patronises you if you don't understand or are slow to get to the answer. Seriously like a strict parent.
Great teacher. Encourages students to "take chances".
He is very concerned about your performance and makes sure you understand what he teaches. He cares about his students and uses his excellent teaching skills to deliver a lesson. Best math teacher I've had at Robs.
Mr McNamara was pretty intimidating at first but he actually has a sense of humour and is probably the best teacher I've had at this school so far. I love his teaching style and he isn't hard to communicate to which is great. I actually look forward to math now. Sir, if you're reading this GOD BLESS YOU!
Pretty good math teacher to be honest. He knows what he is doing and teaches very well. Although, his tests are not the easiest, they tend to be very good prep. Don't be afraid to ask him questions; he will always help you with all his efforts. I was still kinda scared of him though...
Very fair and awesome teacher, currently Department head of Math for Saint Roberts. If you need help, you will get it. He genuinely cares for his students. If you have him, you are very lucky. P.S. For Halloween he dressed up as Walter White :D
An all around great teacher. He's fair and truly cares about his students' educations. He has a sense of humor but can be serious when you don't do homework or pay attention in class. He is the best teacher I've had at this school so far.
Great teacher, but doesn't teach everything - lessons are like 2 examples because he wants you to be intuitive and self-learn. I like Milner better cuz she explains everything, but if you're intuitive and can grasp concepts easily, he's awesome!
Great Teacher, he's fair with the grades. However, he really wants his students to succeed, you'll actually learn if you listen in his class
very nice, fair teacher, made me enthusiastic about math, wow.and he really knows his stuff and teaches well, can answer any questions you have. not scary, can be funny-- but don't mess with him
what h teaches is what GOES ON THE TESTS rare to find these days!
Really great teacher. He knows his material and gets how to explain it. He can get a bit intimidating 1 on 1 but he is one of my favorite teachers :). If u have him you are lucky
VERY encouraging and nice. Gives a bit more homework than you expect, but all in all, he's a great math teacher to have. And like what the other guy said, yea, he does look sorta like Jamie!
Now that you said it, he'll look like jamie from mythbuster foreeeeever. Best teacher :D, can be intimidating lol
A great math teacher. But can be really strict when it comes to upcoming EQAO and Exams.
An amazing (and very smart) teacher, but intimidating when you don't do your homework. He teaches really well and genuinely cares.
Best. Math. Teacher. Ever. knew his stuff so well, in the midst of difficulty that our class would have, he was always VERY encouraging. Would not have succeeded as much as i did in math without him.
cares about his students... thats respect. dont change.
hard maker for sure, but he really cares and teaches very very well. really knows his stuff, awesome guy. reminds meof jamie from myth busters
he is a great guy and he is good at teaching.. he really cares about our learning and try to help us
He pushed us to do better in math and very easy to understand. He's really nice and funny when you get to know him despite of his strict(?) exterior.
hes a really good teacher, and people think hes scary but hes actually really nice. and he helps you if you just ask.
he's a great teacher but very scary...i think i've only seen him laugh out loud maybe twice and i've had him for two semesters. I've never actually just chatted with him, but he teaches well so it doesn't really matter i guess.
u mite not like him.. but hes a good teacher.. and really nice when you get to know him...
he's good at teaching but the monotoned and tedious voice makes me fall asleep...but he's concerned with our learnin which is good =)
good teaching methods, but horribly boring, cause of the monotone voice. overall an okay teacher.
he is strict, but a very clear, nice teacher, yes he does walk outta the room alot, but overal GREAT! ib math is easier with him
he is defintely the best math teacher...IB math would never have been the same without him..
teaches like every other math teacher, but ive never heard of those quotes hes says before. He was on TVO kids, cant really imagine that but meh.
A-tten-tion! get in line soldier, what is the answer for this now!
kinda scary, but really a nice guy at heart. jokes around sometime. just....never ever cross him. great teacher.
Maybe he should have learned AL/GEO before he tried teaching it to us. He came to class, taught, then left. That was it.
i think i stayed in this class for 3 weeks before i left from boredom.
One of the best math teachers, don't be intimidated by him!
Really detailed notes; helpful; looks intimidating but is a softie at heart
He's hard, but i still like him. he's the BIGGEST math dork ever... just ask him
