3.0 Overall Rating
Based on 48 Ratings

06/19/14 - Although his exams are difficult, he practically tells you the answers during class. If you listen during class and study the maps, it shouldn't be difficult. He's energetic everyday and keeps the classroom fun and light. One of the better teachers. Show More Show Less

10/05/13 - Very funny (yet strange) teacher. He cracks a bunch of jokes and overall a good person. However, he calls on students who don't raise their hands and if they get the answer wrong he makes a big deal about it. not my favorite teacher. not my favorite class. he's a tough grader. usually he marks stuff wrong or cross things out and doesnt explain why.

04/19/12 - Mr. Alvin's Honors World Civ was really easy compared to the alternative (Romeo). That being said, his grading system is whack and he'll circle things, write "OK", and then take off anywhere from 1-5 points. He's really funny, (most of the time), but sometimes when he's having a bad day he can snap at any moment. He's not the best teacher however, his explanations are informal and sometimes lacking in detail, and I'm not even sure he offers extra help. You'll really learn things from studying.

03/25/12 - Mr. Alvin might seem like an easy teacher, but because he 90% of the time has no idea what he is doing, you have no idea what he wants from you. Don't underestimate his requirements because he grades harshly. When in doubt, add mumbo-jumbo. Show More Show Less

02/13/12 - I had Mr. Alvin when he first started teaching at BR back in 2002 for World Civ., and again in 2005 for AP Euro. Both times, he came across as a very fair teacher who knew his content. He never struck me as a 'novice teacher,' and always came prepared to teach every class. Creative assignments an Show More Show Less
