My name is Reuben Metcalfe. Derek Rufus-Ellis was my maths teacher 13 years ago.
Over a decade later I'm taking the time to give this man the highest marks possible - not because he was an average teacher who did his job - but because the man is a damn good teacher. He makes genuine connections with the students, and has an acute understanding of the nuances of humor, discipline, and how to get results from a roomful of young ego's. WBHS is lucky to have him, and the credibility he brings.
Rufio! Great guy. Doesn't take his job too seriously , always cracking jokes but a great teacher too. Some of the best quotes and nicknames I have ever heard came from that man. Not sure if he knows the definition of "PC" which is a refreshing change!
Insanely awesome teacher. Even though last week i had detention every day that week with him, he is still probably my favourate core class teacher.
he's one of the few teachers who can abuse you and you can enjoy it at the same time.
he taught me thou shall not divide by zero as the 11th commandment and i have not forgotton it since
Entertaining and educational, passionate about the subject.. Great teacher.
Mr Rufus Ellis is very funny, although his humour is at others expense he always apologizes if he goes too far. Good teacher very helpful and knows his maths
Not a very good teacher. Must be doctor rocks mate?? Acheives nothing in his life. Only get's attention from power, not respect
Very funny man. A great maths teacher who is very enthusiastic about his work.
