Mr Williams had high expectations but if we worked hard he would gets us to the point where we could meet those expectations. He expects his class to be disciplined and he expects students to actively engage in the subject. He can be belittling and a lot of student disrespect him due to his gender preferences, but in my experience it made us work harder. While it was not always comfortable being in his class, I feel it taught me a lot and he was one of the better teachers at school.

This man tortured my child mentally he was non supportive and frankly a complete jerk, he should not be a teacher he is a non supportive abusive idiot. He puts down his students, being unsupportive and unconstructive, and then complains when students do not participate in class. Would not recommend, how is he still employed?

When you ask for help, he gives a big long explanation. And in the end, you are just more confused than before.

At times he Is humorous and fun in his way of teaching and overall he is extremely knowledgeable in his subject. Having said this, he is very often unclear in what he is trying to get across and can be ignorant of students lack of understanding.

While he may know his stuff he has yet to learn a good way to pass it on to his students. He uses intimidation and threats to keep in control of the class and blames all poor results on everyone but himself.

He made my Social Studies experiences even worse. He's smart but never smiles or talks with an inside voice and every kid I know hates him. He's just plain scary.

Knows his stuff about geography as a subject, but I had him as a 5th form social studies teacher; he kept telling us how this "wasn't his subject" and he was "still learning the course". Quite rude in his manner towards us as well.

I had Williams in 2001 as a 6th former. We butted heads and he told my parents I was on drugs- I wasnt, I was just bored with his archaic teaching style. However, he's knowlegable and humourous.

He takes things over the top. especially when things aren't goin his way nd kids are playin up. Hes the general teacher that ppl dislike but is a good teacher when hes relaxed and gives a bit slack.

Strictly as a teacher he's good, knows his stuff and manages to keep the class hard working and disciplined. You can tell some of these kids just don't like him - fair enough, but as a teaher. Good.

I had him in 3rd form. Everyone was petrified of him and he gave me a detention coz i wrote an essay in pencil. He's a good teacher and knows his stuff , but man, he needs to relax and stop yelling at people for stupid things like sitting in corridoors.

Awesome teacher, really teaches you and makes you think and question what he is teaching. Most students think he is mean but when you get to year 12 or 13 you really appreciate what he taught you.
