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.

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.

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!

Maybe he should have learned AL/GEO before he tried teaching it to us. He came to class, taught, then left. That was it.
