Very good teacher. Knows his stuff, keeps the class in line and is thoroughly respected
He is super strict but when it came to exams and assessments, it was a breeze because of him. He is smart and gives notes in a way that even the people of lower smartness (like myself) can understand and have fantastic notes for revision. I will always recommend him to anyone who asks
The best teacher I have had in all my years at Paraparaumu College! Comes across as a bit strict at first, but this is just to keep the class under control and make sure you all learn as much as possible. Has a vast knowledge of history, remembers the exact dates of just about every event that's ever occurred. He is understanding and prepared to work with you if you are disadvantaged in any way and need extra help, and does his best to ensure his students get the best grades they can.
Seemed to have authoritative God complex. Very helpful though, personality and strictness aside, due to his knowledge and passion (I think?) for the subject. Is amusing to listen to at times, whether it be on the subject material, or his off topic altercations with students (including those not even in his class causing "disruptions").
mr adams is soooooo awesome, and i learn new things every day with him, he never lets the class get out of control, and he is strict to the point when it is good. he is a great teacher, thankyou mr br
he taught me well the time i was there, i had him every year i was there also. helped me pass things i had trouble on ect (:
He was a very good teacher, but he tended to go into too much detail when it wasn't possibly needed.
When I Was at College alot of students feared him but I thought that he was a fair and good teacher,
he's a good teacher although he can be scary but he does mean well.
He can drag on but he truly cares for his students he puts on a tough act but once you crack that he is the bomb ... he scared the crap out of me when i was year nine but he is a very good teacher...
Best History teacher, can't take history if you don't get Mr Adams...you won't survive...
Mr Adams was a great teacher, always going that extra mile and he was excallent with orginising the French Trip. There needs to be more teachers like him these days!
Yeah go Bret! you're working that history! best teacher at pram college
Mr Adams is sooo cool! he's funny and an awesome teacher!
Mr Adams is one of Pram colleges best teachers without a doubt.
awsome teacher. always willing to put extra time in just to help you!!!
he will just have assembly just to read out the notices but he was a cool dean. he shouldn't of retired from being a dean because he did such good job.
i thought mr adams was a great teacher in terms of making sure everyone knew exactly what they were doing but in terms of makng a student feel confident, comfortable and appreciated he didnt do so wel
This man has been so helpful with my son. I cannot speak highly enough of him. He gives up weekend after weekend for sporting committments. An excellent teacher as well. Mr Adams you do indeed rock!
mr adams is really kool i had him im 3rd form and he was really kool
u were the mad coach back in the under 75s thanks man i remember i wagd 28 days an got let off with a warning coz i stil made it to trainings your a ledge thanks for the help man
Mr Adams is a pretty kwl teacher i hope i hav him as a history teacher in the years 2 come,
Mr Adams was a great teacher ... always willing to help anyone who would put the time in to get better marks ... just don't mock Nazy Germany
well i think Mr Adams Rocks he's a an awesome dean lol wat more can i say
My Adams was my favourite teacher when I attended P'ram College. He was hard but fair, and never let me make excuses for failing. If more teachers were like him then the world would be a better place.
hes alright but overeacts about fings dat dont matter
Yes i believe Mr Adams is a great teacher he may be a tad conservative but i guess that alright keep up the good work :)
Mr Adams is awesum man he had my bak throughout my years at college he was my fav lol
I'm an ex student, class of 1999. Mr Adams was definitely a memorable teacher. Always helpful in History and a great coach of our cricket team. Nowhere near as scary as people made him out to be.
mr adems is a great dean and is really not that scary at all,i love seeing him in detention when i get a detention for talking in maths
An underappreciated asset to pram college, this guy lives in wellington [for those of ya who dont kno] and sacrifices entire weekends to look after sports teams [various rugby teams + 1st eleven cricket and atleast one 3rd form cricket team] this is every week, he puts in the long hours and it shows, you'd be hard pressed to find a teacher as commited as he is to their respective school. As for history he's a gr8 teacher who gives sufficient notes, just listen to him and be good and your sweet!
He is a really helpful teacher. He only gets angry at students if they are not working. You don't have to be smart or get good marks, you just have to do the work and not talk back. I had him last year and he gave really good notes. He is very dedicated to the school and is always willing to give up his time to help motivated students.
i think hes awsum...he has to put up with so much crap from students being a dean and a teacher so no wonder he can get angry...but if u get on his good side he is the awsumist teacher...
great person and i wish him the best for the future.he is ultimatley the best history teacher, not boring, just has random jokes that everyone loves.Well anyway those who disagree really should grow up and realise he is a proffessional and this is his job he is not your babysitter so why does he have to be nice when you talk when your not meant to.
The thing i like about Mr Adams is he respects individual students and their situations. People say hes disrespectful but hes not, he's just doing his job and his job is to keep the class quite so others can learn - and if you talk its your own fault if you get yelled at. even if you do wear non reg stuff if you say sorry and take it off without a fuss hes sweet. If you treat him with respect by following the rules then he will treat you with respect. Show him your worthy of respect and youll get it!
Yes his notes have gotten worse and he does jump from topic to topic too fast but Mr Adams is not disrespectful. If you talk when you shouldn't or do something you know he doesn't allow he gets grumpy - but really what do you expect? If you work hard and speak openly to him youl find out that he understands how hard it is being a teenager and respects that. As long as you really try your hardest he will respect you so grow up, stop whining and start behaving like a mature and thoughful student!
I've never had him for a subject, and probably shouldn't be writing a review, but as a reliever we learn a lot and he's funny, a much needed relief from Ms McNamara
Great history teacher explains things in detail with enthusism in his voice, and gets up on saturdays to watch the college teams play sports.
mr adams is a wicked teacher.he only over reacts if your being stupid,and if you are,then you deserve to be shouted at,coz you chose history.he makes it real interesting,one of my best teachers.try another history teacher,and you'll wish you had him back!!!and he ALWAYS gives up his time to help people with work and pass,wich is good coz ncea is so stupid,you need all the help you can get
He seems to get grumpier and meaner as the years go on! i liked him in 3rd form but not any more. He is quite rude and disrespectful, and although he is filled with information, his notes get worse each year, and he talks far to fast and jumps from topic to topic too much to be able to take your own notes. He needs to lighten up then he'll be cool
Mr Adams is kool as!, until he gets a poor student to stand in front of him in the middle of assembly,as they were talking, he yells at them soooo loud that we have to resort!but yea hes an awesome dean to have!
Extremely proffesional attitude and a great teacher. The class is alway ket under control and he is a supportive and practical dean. He does not discriminate and is very involved in the school. He has a huge workload but still manages to mark all our assessments in resonable time. Has the best teaching methods I've everexperienced by far.
Extremely over reactive at things that do not even matter. But a good teacher when in class.
Mr Adams is strict but makes an awesome teacher and dean. He is also fair and funny.
I think he is an awsome teacher with a great understanding of the students needs. His method of teaching is very effective, and his interest and support in the schools sporting culture admirable.
