Thanks Mr.Mbura, He is a nice math teacher. Mbura teaches us students everything we need to know in the classroom and make the work easy for us to understand. School can be boring sometimes and coming into Mbura's class makes it fun and comfortable. He is funny and it is an enjoyable class to be in.

He also starts off easy so we can work our way up to the harder problems. He has helped me understand faster than any other teacher because of the way he takes his time to explain the lessons.

Mr.Mbura is a amazing math teacher here at SAUL High School.He helps us students break down math problems that may seem hard for some students. He teaches with enthusiasm and makes us laugh through time to time. He helps us students to, not only learn, to help us grow and to be successful in life. He works one on one with students by breaking the problem down in simple terms. Even when he is not teaching, he still cares for his student´s well being and tries to help them with life problems too. I am so glad to have a teacher who is fun, responsible, and overall a great math teacher and friend.Thank you so much Mr. Mbura for helping me learn and grow in school.
Mr. Mbura has helped me with so much relating to Algebra, and being a nice person in general. His way of teaching is a perfect balance of lecture and fun, and I haven't learned this well with a math teacher in school yet. He explains everything step by step while having fun with the students and joking around with us all. His work is challenging, and has pushed me to try harder at my work. He loves to have fun with his accent with all of the students and will say a random joke at times. It lightens up the mood with all of the annoying work. I respect him and am happy to have him as a teacher.
he helps us with math and gives us chances. he gives us a lot of support along with motivation. this math class isn't like any other boring class it is fun.
