I was shoehorned into computer class in 6th form in 1986. Thanks to Mr Pollocks Teaching style and I think his realization that I am a see do learner Computer Science became my favorite subject. Sometimes his lab explanations weren't complete, but you could always find plenty of material around to point you in the right direction. Possibly with me I had issues with focus, and had a million little projects on the boil.
He allowed us to play with operating system level programming, assembler

Opened my eyes to computer use, also kept the school timetable system running. Trusted students with a lot of expensive gear without micro-managing us. Among the best teachers I ever had.

really surprised reading at past ratings!
mr pollock was a great teacher to me - at first i thought he seemed not to know what he was doing however once you get to know him, he is a actually a really nice and good teacher.
he would occasionally shout at you if you are a bad student but if you are a good student, he would usually allow you to play games etc . he would also allow you to be late and mark you present (not late) even though you are 30mins late just because ur a good student.
