He is perfectly good at teaching chemistry, and uses the whiteboard to explain a lot. Occasionally he goes further, and touches upon the next year levels work to extend our knowledge. He teaches things at least twice, so if you complain that he hasn't taught you anything it is because you were destined to fail because all you do is talk and disrupt your own learning - don't complain that he isn't teaching because you can't be bothered listening. He does provide help when you ask for it.

He has a Bachelor of Chemistry and Insult Comedy. He throws a fake rock at those who wont be quiet. He will blast rude kids. He is nice to good students and female students (not in a creepy way though). He is definitely in the mood for retirement. His daughter's partner is Paul Henry. If you want an average teacher, who is funny, he's your many.

I loved chemistry but was never very good at it! Mr Dryborough always had a way of putting things and making the class laugh. He also taught me how useless biology was!!!!

Can be scary but has an excellent sense of humour and got me through bursary chemistry. I tried to incorperate some of his techniques into the lessons I taught as a science teacher.
