Mr. Balfe is the best math teacher I've ever had. He knows his stuff, explains things well, and marks and returns work in a timely manner. By far the best math teacher at MSS. Some test questions present a challenge, which often makes people upset, but it's those sorts of things that push students to improve and truly understand the material on a deeper level.

Excellent teacher. Teaches math skills as well as life skills for those who listen and want to take something away from the course other than math, which is something he is also extremely proficient in, and teaching it. Promotes healthy and smart choices, as well as pushes student to scrutinize their surrounding, making them walk away stronger thinkers. Thank you for teaching me Balfe.
