Mr. McGuirk has by far been the best math teacher I have ever had, and the best teacher at MVHS I have ever had. He is extremely helpful, and is always on your side. He prepares you very well for AP Calc and AP Stat. He is very knowledgable, patient, and willing to help. Definitely recommend.

Absolutely amazing. He knows his stuff and is very supportive of his students even despite the difficult coursework. He explains concepts very clearly and in different way to make sure you understand. One of the best math teachers ive ever had, he makes the complicated stuff not so daunting, and gives you the confidence to tackle it. You can also tell he really loves math, he brings energy and enthusiasm to the classroom every single day.

he's a really good teacher. he won't go chasing after you if your grade is low--you have to take initiative and ask him for help. but if you do, he's happy to and he's really good at explaining stuff

Smart, honest, fair, yet very challenging. At times, uninteresting (it's calc-what do you expect). Good man. Ask for Punday Mondays!!
