Best teacher I've ever had. So so organised and knowledgable and has fantastic notes and powerpoints. Knows what he's doing and has a unique sense of humour. Is actually so nice even though he never smiles. MR SHORT AND MR ALLAN 4EVA <3
He is the most organised teacher I have had, and his explanations are so interesting. Definitely recommend him for history.
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.
i love him v knowledge
My son really really enjoys being taught by Dean. Met him at last week's parent teacher interview, lovely bloke.
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.
Absolutely amaZing! He looks mean and rude but he answers every question in any possible way. He cares that you do well. VERY VERY VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE! He is absolutely amazing! By far best history teacher out. He isn't intimidating once you have him; he is funny and all :))
Mr Allan is very knowledgeable and his teaching motivates students to put in effort into their studies as well as read beyond the scope.
One of the best teachers I have ever known. One of the most dedicated, lovely teachers of my school-life
LOVE HIM! He's definitely knows his subjects and is great teacher. Also he's hilarious
This man is a genius! Easily one of my favourite teachers at Mac Rob. He knows his areas well, prepares everyone for SACS and gives really in-depth and good feedback. Also, good sense of humour
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.
Absolutely amazing teacher. He knows everything and anything about any topic you could possibly ask him. Also just hilarious and fun as a teacher.
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 :)
Mr Allan is a top bloke! Very helpful and says some hilarious things. Also knows everything, about anything ever. Still I stand by what I said. TOP BLOKE
A brilliant teacher, who instructs in a direct and clear manner, whilst engaging his classes in the subject. A wonder to have in VCE, and excels in preparing students for assessment and fostering a ge
he is the coolest dude on the block, you have no idea and i bet he knows that we know that he know we think he's cool and he's only trying to find it! LOL
On a serious note, he is a really dedicated
i remember that when mr allan taught our class actually listened-he is truly the best teacher ive ever had
Mr. ALlan is well informed and quite funny too, he knows his stuff and has clear explanations, had him for international studies
great teacher, had him in year 9 all the way to VCE International Studies in year 12. when you feel confident in your subject and interested in whats going on, then you know you've got a good teacher.
made the subject fascinating! and i loved the powerpoints, readings and questions generally make me bored (i'm not a maths/science type)
We all know why he wears jeans on fridays, but it doesn't stop him from being a really dedicated and inspiring teacher.
Everyone likes Mr Allan -he's an awesome teacher (even though I've fallen asleep in his class twice, but we WERE watching a movie about WWI so you can't blame him).
he knows heaps but i hate the power points. one every now and then is okay, but constantly is awful, boring... i fall asleep
excellent teacher! im a total maths/science kid and i i haaaaaated history. mr allen made history my favourite subjects! plus whenever he returned assignments, his comments were detailed and helpful!
Fantastic teacher... had him for history in year nine, and he really knows his stuff, and how to make it interesting. The powerpoints are pretty great only they put me to sleep a little! Go Mr Allan!
The powerpoints are effective, but why are they ALWAYS blue? And those new smart-boards annoy me heaps! It takes like half an hour to set them up, and put stuff on them! I'd say he's a good teacher...
Awesome, awesome teacher. I had him for history in year 10 and I still remember (most) of it, even though it's been quite a while. Go Mr Allan!
I just saw this website being criticised on sunrise. The media is so stupid. Mr allan is an awesome teacher and this site is a great way for teachers to see their students views. Hail mr allan!!!
he is an awesome teacher. I want him next year . . . !! YAY!
