Ugh where do I start... First of all picks on one student when they have done NOTHING wrong. Then teases and embarrasses them with by saying things which are funny but are offensive and embarrassing for the student. He's a pretty good teacher though, knows what he is doing.

Mr Duffy is EPIC, loving the music in the background of lessons, and the random shouting loudly when a student is sleeping in class making everyone jump, best teacher ever, moved from UK, he is the reason I am now doing a double major in Geography and geology, cheers Mr D, I'll keep you posted, RC
