Can't seem to understand anything he teaches. Doesn't answer questions properly--EVER. Doesn't control the class, and simply makes Physics a boring hell hole.

He isn't that bad. People just find it hard to understand his accent. He is a pretty good teacher though. Made physics easier to understand.

Very helpful I dislike the people in my class that keep asking stupid questions. They are so immature and should leave us in peace Mr Hemachandra is awesome and if you actually listen youll understand

Mr Hemachandra does his best to explain his topics but often fails due to accent. He is very intelligent though.

he is a good teacher, but sometimes does not answer questions thoroughly. his accent is definitly hard to understand sometimes. picks on certain students when other people are doing the same thing.

I find it helpful that he takes a bit (heh) longer to explain things, so that everybody understands. The accent isn't his fault, but it would perhaps be better if his notes made a bit more sense.

He can't make things clear and tell you want to know... which is horrible when exams are coming up..... I had to do almost all of my physics study myself.... it's really hard to understand him

Totally don't get him. He would spend 5mins answering ppls but never tell us exactly what we want to know, not to mention his writing (CAPITAL LETTERS sometimes without punctuation). He's occationally nice though.

Wrongly tells people off, sometimes hard to understand, can clearly see he knows his subject but sometimes very unclear. The umbrellas are cute but needs to revise the notes he gives to classes

i find that more often than not, in 7th form physics he has just as much trouble trying to figure out how to do the problems as the students do.

He is a good teacher overall who makes you understand the topic. However, two things that most first years who get him find annoying are his capital letters and accent.
