yeah he says he wasnt to use a range of teaching styles but i think he is stuck on mind maps. mind maps are a visual way of learning so i think students find it hard to use them. however i think he is quite respectable

Says he is accommadating different learning styles, but works with one teaching style and gets angry with people who don't relate to it. This can be frustrating if you're actually trying.

I would just like to clarify that Im not sure if this teacher is very clarified about what he teaches. If he were to include more clarifications in his lesson, things may become a little more clarified for his students.

Is a physics teacher but cannot do basic math. Has very set ways how about students should learn, but they are all terrible. All of the other students I have talked to find it ver hard to learn with him. Moans alot.
