AMAZING TEACHER!!!❤️❤️ He's one of those teachers you'd want to keep in contact with. He makes class so fun and enjoyable through his humor and ability to keep the students interested. Also, he's one of the very few teachers to truly CARE about his students. He treats us like his own kids and puts our health and happiness before anything. Truly an all around amazing person and teacher. I love that guy 😊

I had Mr. Alvear for College writing and I got to say he is one of the best teacher you can have at Fort Hamilton H.S. During my senior, he was there to assist students with their college essay. He will always find times to help you.

Mr Alvear is a very fun and cool teacher. He will make you laugh in class. Hes definitely one of the most unique teachers in Fort Hamilton and LOL at all the students to suck up to him class, just to get a high easy grade in English class. He also has a community club called Reach Out, that you can join if you're a senior and if you have him for English. It's a great way to get a high score in the class, if you're dumb enough to fail the class.

I think he has the potential to be a very good teacher but he wants in a way to be praised for educating the students so he gives a speech and lectures about things that doesnt have to do with teaching english and expects you to go up to him and ask to teach you to write an easy on his free time. He just wants to be remembered and wants the credit for educating the students. Well, the question is where did you get your information from?

Helpfulness
5
Clarity

I can tell you he is a pretty good teacher and explains everything you need to know without constantly asking questions. But he does not teach to his fullest becouse he perhaps he does not want to educate the students quickly in which he spent years educating himself. He wants you to ask him to teach me your wisdom then he doesnt have trouble at doing so. For example having him teaching you to write an easy, in which he does not spend a lot of time in class.
