I had Mr McDonald as my A Level Maths teacher, and as I was also doing Further Maths A Level with another teacher it meant that I would cover a lot of the A Level maths course before he actually taught it to me. If anything Mr McDonald's way of teaching could actually make me confused about a topic I already understood and I honestly think that if he had been teaching me all the stuff from scratch I would have really struggled with the A Level maths course. He is a terrible teacher.
really dislike him. he expects too much of the pupils who aren't brilliant at maths. "i've got to go with the best in the class" etc. so glad im not going to be in his class next year.
I think he's brilliant, I was relly bad at maths and he's helped me loads!!!
Not good at all. Teaches from a textbook, you'd be better reading the book yourself. Can give a straight answer, won't admit when he's wrong (which is often) no time for anyone who doesnt get it first time. Picks on other students when their not there to try to joke around with the rest of the class in order to gain popularity. If you get him, transfer to another class unless you really good at teaching yourself maths!
when we had this fella for gcse maths ans stats it was his frst yr at rathmore in the rickety mobile with the leaky roof- best year ever- amazing craic- and we christened him "slap". love the guy hes class- wears amazin clothes too!! plus his class got me 2 grade a's - can't be bad to that!
im really scared of him!!!! i sit quietly in all his lessons! hasnt asked me a question all year!! lol dusnt even know im there! good 4 me tho
he needs 2 relax a bit in tutor grup. he needs 2 realise not evry1 is perfect
Really funny. Very witty. Has lots of jokes and phrases.
The absolute best, made me what i am, best teacher in rathmore

Brilliant teacher and very dedicated to his students. Also very sound guy when not teaching. Best teacher in Rathmore
this man does have a real passion for maths...but he is very intimidating. he scares me
