Mr Sangster is a product of the traditional school of teaching. Using very scholarly terms that may confuse his twenty first century students. But as a whole without this mans in depth knowledge of math and methods of teaching I may have struggled to pass math in level 1. Not only is he a great math teacher but also an outstanding and dedicated manager of tennis at MAGS. He is a good example of former Albertians giving back to the school.

What a superb teacher Alan is!!!! He is always clear and often humorous during lessons inducing subtle puns and references to 70's pop culture. Keep up the good work Alan!!!!

Knows what he's talking about, always has extra work for me to do when I have completed the set work, though can be definitely be very unfair sometimes.

An excellent formal teacher, but perhaps to disconnected from the students and ridged. Could do with letting his guard down a bit and be more relaxed. I passed thanks to you in Late 2000's NCEA lv 1. thank you.

He's funny at times but can be a bit hard on students and isn't always clear (he also insists on doing everything his way).

The thing with Alan is that he belongs to a bygone era of kiwiana which may make him seem out of sync with today's students,but looking back I can see that he really did want the best for his students

Mr Sangster is a horrible teacher and made my time in his class unbearable. He does not realise that some people in his class may not be up to his "standard" and if that's you then you are left behind. He picks on people that aren't as smart as the rest of his class. One of the worst teachers ever.

Class was boring, but nothing to do with Mr. Sangster, merley the subject he teaches, you can see he loves what he teaches, and if your into maths, you'd really appreciate his class. Keep up the good work sir.

he's an awesome teacher, experienced and good at explaining things, could be a bit strict at times but he's still one of my favourite teachers

Sangster is probably the best teacher I've ever had. He's is very strict and probably sets too much homework but i'm doing excellent in maths because of him. Cheers sir.

He's a good teacher, but he's sort of is angry sometimes.

Mr Sangster is a very nice teacher. Though sometimes I do not quite understand what he is saying straight away, eventually it sinks in. He has given me a few detentions though, but this is understandable.

Mr Sangster is very helpful and persistant he is willing to help you with all your maths queries as long as you do your home work. He is a very cool teacher and teaches us alot but we dont stay on some topics long enough.
