Best Math teacher at Mackenzie. While it may seem like he is assigning you too much work. It all helps prepare you for the tests and exam.

This guy's a savage. Man doesn't teach. He honestly makes u do a chapter for homework instead of actually doing notes and practical teaching on the board, and when he does teach, he won't let you ask questions. If you ask him to help afterclass or in private, he will say no every time. He doesn't care about students or learning, he cares about his job and getting the paycheck for the day.

He might know his subject, quiet well even! but let's be honest, he is close to 60, poor man is beginning to show symptoms of old age. I think he should retire. Nevertheless, his classes were so fun, he is hilarious, most quotable teacher !!!

I had Galo for functions, data, and calculus and honestly he is one of the best math teachers at MAC. His tests are fairly easy if you study, but he marks very leniently. His exams are pretty difficult, but almost all math exams are. He really knows his stuff: it is just a language issue for him. But if you ask him for help he will explain.

Lazy. He usually tries to avoid teaching lessons and sits on his computer all day and plays chess. His idea of getting you to do all your questions for homework is to turn them into 'assignments' which he checks whenever he feels like it, and to make you write answers on the blackboard to prove you did everything (and you need to explain the question with his format). He doesn't read his homework questions either, gives them anyway even if they make no sense. He can be very unclear and unhelpful at times an

This teacher is a "beautiful mistake". Who in the world gives a full textbook load of homework without even teaching the material? He forces you against your will to copy down Key Ideas and Need to Know? SERIOUSLY, I WOULD RATHER WRITE THE WORDS "I don't" IN FRONT OF EVERY "Need to Know"s. His logic confuses students and not only does he make you feel "sorry for your mark", but also sorry for being in his class at all. Good luck to anyone with this person.

An awesome teacher, you learn so much from him and have lots of fun, when hes not being lazy LOL but as long as in class he sees that you do work and not goof off he'll be nicer and give you part marks as well as mark tests in your favor. Lol a good man for sure

I think he's a great math teacher. People who haven't had him before might find his tests a challenge (you actually have to study, or at least practice, for his math tests), but you get used to it :P. Calculus is one my favourite classes right now; and of course Mr.Galo is absolutely hilarious XD. "Learning is suffering guy" "Square both thighs!"

Overall, an excellent math teacher. When he is not being lazy, he teaches very well. He definately knows his stuff. Very hard tests though- but he marks very very fairly, "in your favour", and very generously gives part marks.

Gets a bad rap unfairly for the difficulty of the corses he teaches but, "If you don't understandt this concept, then sorry for your mark"....enough said.

If I wanted to write a summary of each chapter, I'd do it on my own time. Doing so is not a substitute for teaching. Get up and teach something for once.
