Knows his stuff and likes to develop lots of new learning techniques... probably too many learning techniques. He teaches you the stuff, but I feel like perhaps I would learn more if it was a bit more exciting instead of just writing and talking and revising. See, barely staying awake in class is hard for learning stuff, sorry sir but it is a little dull but you know your stuff and we still learn it, just it's not very... thrilling.

Just came out of his class, great teacher! Has a way of teaching where he pushes you to get the answer by yourself and gives you hints along the way. If I ask him a question I'll be sure to get the correct answer 99% of the time. I get along with him really well and he try's to have a good bond with all his students 👍🏽👏🏽

Seems real bossy and self-centred. Saw him make someone open a door for him and then told him off for doing it wrong. Gave me a detention for watching my mate messing with the flagpole in the village.
