Mr. Alisna was a good teacher. He helped in Speech Communication and Study Skills summer school.
A very hard teacher who knows his stuff but is so critical and blunt, but I respect that in a teacher. Thank you Mr. A for a great semester.
An amazing mentor and outstanding coach who has two national champions on the speech and debate team. Although he is strict, he produces pure excellence.
Mr.Alisna is a very knowledgeable teacher and you can tell that he is very passionate about his job as a Speech and Debate teacher.
Mr. Alisna was a good teacher. He would lecture us on and on every day about something. Your class is very fun because we get to play games. The homework is hard you should cut down on it.
Mr. Alisna is a very good teacher even if he's strict. He knows a lot of things and shares real life lessons with us that we can use in the future. He helps us a lot when we don't know things.
Mr. Alisna is a pretty cool teacher, although he is very strict at times, especially when he gets very upset. he also gives us entertaining activities instead of writing, except the TWA's (essays).
Thanks Mr. Alisna for a wonderful 2 weeks (:
He is a great teacher and encourages his students to be young and industrious.
Alisna is a great teacher and i loved everything about this course.
Very cheerful and fun teacher that makes learning a great experience. He mixes play with work very well. I always look forward to coming to this class. Also takes care of us outside of class.
Mr. Alisna is the best teacher I ever had. HeÊ»s passionate about speech and encourages us to do our best. He relates to us as students and helps everyone along the way. HeÊ»s fair, patient, and genuine
Mr. Alisna was a wonderful and inspiring teacher! I loved how he motivated us to always strive for "perfection" and always saw the potential in our learning. He truly made an impact on my learning!
Mr. Alisna is always organized, knows his topics for different speeches very well and treats all his students fairly.
Hes a good teacher but may need some help here and there
I feel that he has a very positive influence on his students.
Mr. Alisna is the best speech teacher that i have ever had. He taught me how to be a real speaker and to show confidence when i speak. I look forward to going to his class.
Mr. Alisna taught me to be more confident in myself when speaking and to take time to prepare before hand. I find his teachings very useful not only in speech but to be used in everyday life.
Mr. Alisna is an excellent teacher if he sees potential in you. He will truly give you your all if you show him the effort.
He really is a great teacher who is passionate about speech. Wish we had more teachers like him on our campus.
Mr.Alisna actually cares about his student and their well-being. He is always willing to help if you are willing to communicate your thoughts and ideas to him. He holds a lot of knowledge!!
I like Mr. Alisna because he shows great interest to speech, and I think that he makes me want to be interested in speech. He is said to be one of the harder speech teachers, and if that it is true or not I don't know, but personally I think that Mr. Alisna is a great teacher, and I feel, judging by the requirements of students at the Mock Job Interview, that Mr. Alisna students will be the most prepared to take on the real world.
Well, I think he is an amazing teacher, but he does have his moods. But hey, who doesn't? Truly cares about his students and is extremely passionate about public speaking. I wish more teachers were like Mr. Alisna.
You can tell that Mr. Alisna is a passionate teacher and loves what he does, but sometime he lets his mood rule his teaching. That not only stresses himself out, but also his students and freaks us out about our grades. Harsh at times, he never stops pushing us to be better. Can sometimes, though bring out the worst.
good teacher, much knowlage, can be really moody at times, and tends to take it out on his students partially... overall good teacher though
Mr. Alisna is a strict teacher, but makes sure that you have the tools needed to succeed. He is very organized and keeps his students informed about his class.
Mr. Alisna is one of my hardest teachers. His curriculum is difficult but the course itself is well worrth while to take. He is always available to help with your speech. Although he was tough in the end I benefited it because his methods of teaching helped me improve as a speaker.
Even though he's a tough teacher, he is definitely one of the teachers that I'll remember when I graduate. Extremely helpful and understanding if you have a problem, just go and talk to him.
Mr. Alisna does what he can for his students, especially for extra credit opportunites.
Mr. Alisna was very sincere he was constantly mean to everyone pushing them to do their best. However I could always understand him because he yelled at me for speaking pidgin in class. He was helpful in explaining them and using the TA's to show us how to do the different speeches. I thought the class was very helpful and entertaining.
Mr. Alisna is so funny... BUT, ai sus. He can be so mean sometimes. DONT TEASE ME! XP
Mr. Alisna's class is very challenging. He makes sure you strive for the best you can do, and tells you the nitty gritty truth. He teaches many things that can be applied in life. But not to lie, he is a very hard teacher but teaches things needed to know.
He is a good teacher and really pushes people to become better speakers. It is a very rigorous class.
His class is stressful at times, but fun for the most part.
Mr. Alisna teaches well, is percise, is not confusing, and is interesting and at times entertaining. Mr. Alisna makes learning fun and interesting. Because he is real, I was able to have a real sense of my speaking skills. Through all of this he was also able to encorporate life lessons that I have not gained from any other teacher here on the campus.
Helped me overcome my fears of speaking. Very fun class.
His class is hard, but he is very helpful to his students by showing how to outline the speeches and giving good examples for us to watch.
the class was difficult, but some other outside factors contributed to making it the way it was, those factors removed it would be easier to deal with
To be honest, Mr. Alisna's class is challenging but I did learn a lot. He forgets to tell us stuff a lot, and doesn't really keep to his word about sending info or helping. He's a really cool guy :)
I was expecting Mr. Alisna's class to be incredibly difficult and him to be a strict teacher, but in actuality he's a really nice guy and a helpful speech teacher.
hard, but you learn more than just speech. you learn about life.
He is a really understanding teacher. When a student is absent, he is very understanding when we have to make up things. I really learned a lot. He may be demanding, but very understandable.
He is really demanding, but challenging. An amazing teacher and speech and debate coach!
He really cares about us students. Very different kind of teacher.
I liked his activities and games we played in his class. I liked the kinds of speeches we did. I LOVED the food we got to eat. Although he corrected us a lot, I think we all needed it to become better
Although he is tough, Mr. A has taught me so much about speech and life. I wish I had more teachers like him. I hope KS will be like his class.
Mr. A is a hard teacher, but he really cares about his students. He even stays up til 2 AM to help kids.
Mr. Alisna is probably one of the best teachers I have ever had in my life. His teaching style is fun and I learned SO MUCH in less than 5 weeks time. I hope my other teachers at KS will be as GREAT.
What a great Hoâ€˜ike night. Thank you Mr. Alisna for teaching my son this summer. I know he has learned a lot and is well prepared for Kamehameha Schools. Mahalo nui loa ke Akua.
Mr. A is clear with his instructions and demands perfection ALL THE TIME! I guess that's why you either love him or hate him. Either way he is AMAZING at what he does!
Mr. A has helped me be a better speaker and person during this summer.
I think that Mr. Alisna is an understanding clear helpful teacher.
i think that to help us improve even more on our speech, you could tell us what to work on after all of our speeches because i see my grade but it doesnt explain what i did wrong or what i did well.
I thought that Mr.Alisna was a very helpful person he is cool he explains everything with great detail and has very good at demonstrations.
Mr. Alisna has made assignments very clear and correct mistakes that are required to be corrected
I think that you were very hard and challenging helping me out a lot and I think you helped us a lot though I had trouble with clarity
Very helpful, and gives you a reason to care about things, and makes us want come to summer school.
Mr. Alisna is a fun teacher, who has many fun activites that help us to get over stage fright

Mr. Alisna is great at teaching, he is a good listener. He is always willing to help us.
Sometimes he can be REALLY mean, but overall he's a good teacher. He needs to work on being more SPECIFIC, and not get so irritated... PATIENCE.
Doing speeches is hard, but I really like him as a teacher.
He really is amazing and funny. He connects with us on our level and explains things well.
I liked how he linked Facebook with our daily assignments to help me stay on track. I wish more teachers were like him. I hope HS will be this much fun.

he's a hard teacher at the right times. he is a very clear teacher when it comes to explaining what he wants and needs. i think this is a successful teacher, and a very well teacher.
I think that Mr. Alisna is a very hard teacher though he does help us a lot with the work he gives us during the past weeks. He is clear almost all the time because sometimes he is confusing and he's
Stern, straightforward, and a good person to talk to.
