Allan seems very intimidating but once you have him, that's not he case. Very very knowledgable! Absolutely amazing history teacher, would highly recommend. Allan is a very nice person and he genuinely wants students to do well for themselves and not just focus on the mark. Our class actually listens when he's teaching because it's engaging and encourages class participation. Good sense of humour too, always had a laugh. Hope to have him for vce.

As a history teacher (year nine/ten), he's amazeballs. I loved him so much. He was so interesting when talking about the subject matter. Global Politics... look, the subject isn't as interesting to start with, but he takes a more tech approach - everything is online and it's very hands off. I find that a bit hard. That said, he gives a tonne of feedback on each SAC and gives you a billion practice questions and is prepared to mark them all.

He is very passionate about History and he is really nice and strict but in a good way. He is reasonable and very clear in teaching and easy to understand. He understands what we don't understand and is eager to help whenever students don't understand.

WOW! This guy totally changed my life. He is the most dedicated, patient teacher there. He must spend hours on written comments, he knows EVERYTHING, is passionate and has a sense of humor (very dry!). If you talk to him 1-1, you see he is also the kindest, nicest guy you'll ever meet. He genuinely cares and will do anything to help you. If you are privileged enough as I was to get him for VCE, do everything he says and talk to him as much as you can. You'll see what an impact he has.

Allan is the best teacher at MacRob by x a trillion. You couldn't hope for a more brilliant teacher - it was such a privilege to have been taught by him in my VCE - made moving to MacRob worth it. He was my fav by far - his classes were always engaging, he provided detailed feedback on all assessments and his knowledge was incredible - probs has a BA Hons or Masters lol. Above all- he actually seemed to care about students - the hours he put into work were impressive. He should be paid double :)
