Mr. Mac is a teacher who prepares his students for college. His classes aren't easy, but you learn a lot. While some of the topics can be difficult to understand, he's willing to help if you go in.

Mr. Mac was one of the best teachers I've ever had. His teaching style is such that the student answers his or her own question using info they just learned. Mac, you're the best!

The stuff he teaches isn't too complicated. But Mr. McNamara's teaching style doesn't work for everyone. On the bright side.. he uses the SAME tests, quizes, homework, and final every year..........

Mr. Mac is very frustrating at times, but his method of teachings allows students to epiphinize (sp?) in physics. Unfortunately, when people can't, Mr. Mac doesn't help at all.

He is a definite user of the Socratic method, meaning he responds to questions with questions, which can be a little annoying. He helps one on one if asked, and it's a hard class.

Teaching goes way over everyone's heads, and doesn't like to answer questions.

It's obvious that he knows a lot about physics but he definitely doesn't know how to teach it. If his students are struggling, he acts like they're stupid.
