Mr.Allen has been the best teacher that I have ever had in CV. He clearly cares about his students, and wants them to understand. He will be missed after he retired.

Funny and great teacher,but his tests are HARD. He teaches at a college level almost and my tutor couldn't even keep up with him with his own special ways to do problems and worksheets. I got my 1st C

He ia really a nice guy and great math teacher. He gets on a personal level with you and actually cares. To get an A you need to go afterschool, and do well on the tests, but his tests are fair.

God he's good at teaching math... I mean sometimes he'll explain something after you do the homework on it, but still, I mean he's a REALLY good math teacher.

Probably one of the best math teachers I've ever had, he makes sure that his students get the curriculum. It's a MUST to go into after-school help, though. Truly made me enjoy math, now.

Assigns homework without reviewing concepts and is inconsistent in giving quizzes. Your grade is a reflection of your performances on the tests, which are far from par with his teaching caliber.

Relies on examples rather than process. Students need more reinforcement than what he provides. Very nice man but limited in his ability to logically explain math concepts.

Mr. Allen is by far the best math teacher I have ever had. What makes him different is that math isn't just a job for him. He loves it and makes it his passion to teach us
