Mr. Ellis leads a very engaging Calculus AB class, one I look forward to every day in 8th period. He truly cares for the well-being of his students and helps every single one succeed. He does demand attention and time for his class, but he is one of my favorite teachers ever. It's really too bad that he is retiring soon - I will miss him

Mr. Ellis is by far the best teacher I have ever had. He is great 1 on 1 if you need help and although his class is hard, he prepares you well for the AP test.

Mr. Ellis is the best math teacher I've ever had! I had him for AP Calc AB and he prepares you for the AP test so well that it seems way to easy when you walk out of the room. He's a TOUGH grader, but it's only to help you in the long run.

Mr. Ellis is by far the best teacher i have ever had. I learned more in two semesters than i did in every other year of highschool math combined. When it comes time for the ACT, you'll realise that you've learned almost everything on it. As long as you do your homework and pay attention in class you will easily have a great year. It's a shame he's retiring this year. I wish every teacher could teach like him.

Mr Ellis is probably the most dedicated and effective educator at Lake Zurich. He is an excellent teacher, though he really makes you work for your grades. It's too bad he's going to retire soon.

He is a fantastic teacher. I have learned so much from him. He is quite a hard teacher but if you study and genuinely try to learn then you will do well in his class.

He's been teaching the same class for over 30 years. He was the reason I became a Math major. Best teacher I've ever had

Sure some people say he's a really hard teacher, or that he's extremely uncaring and mean. But I can personally say that I have never had a better teacher in my life.

I've graduated college now, and his class was absolutely college level. He taught so well that I didn't start leaning new material untill midsemester Calc2.

Ellis was one of the worst math teachers I've ever had. He inspired ME to be a math teacher because I knew that I could do a better job. Pity he's still there.
