I must say that he single handedly destroyed bio subject for me. Used to score really high marks till year 11 in bio then year 12 happened. Really strict teacher and even if you are smart in bio but if you are in his bad books, you wont do well with him. Its a shame how he changed my thinking of loving bio subject to hating it in 1 year. I must say that he knows his subject inside out and when it comes to knowledge of his subject by far he is the best teacher in that school. Its a shame though

He sets a lot of homework and gives lots of notes, but they prepare students adequately for their exams. A little scary when you're not used to his way of teaching, but I found him to be very wise and extremely knowledgeable. Lovely man who devotes a lot of effort into keeping his student's grades at the m-e level.

Great teacher but very strict. As long as you dont do anything stupid (e.g. talk in his class, not following instructions, not having any prior knowledge on subject etc.), you'll be fine, be warned though, if you do something stupid he will rage more than any teacher you'll know.

You have to answer the answer with NCEA style 'plaazz', Agreed? or you will get negative in NCEA.. Seen him laugh? When he says agreed make sure the whole class replys agreed. It's so cool. Respect
