Totally awesome teacher! Although people say that he talks a lot, I feel like it is in context. At the same time, I don't think it's fair to blame the teacher if you do not do well, because in the end no one can make a change in yourself but you. Perhaps it's just down to personal preference. For me, he was a close teacher who tries very hard to help his students, much so that they do not see it. Definitely the closest teacher I've ever come across. Thanks for the awesome years at Onslow!
He's a great teacher and try's very hard he's good at keeping things interesting but does get off topic and let's discussions last to long
Has a tendency to get off topic, but he knows his stuff
Lovely man, slightly disorganised YETI is very kind and goes very much out of his way to help students who have special circumstances. Wahoo. The reason I went on to do a science course at university.
He's ok,I sometimes don't really understand things but he's a good teacher.He has funny comebacks,I didn't really like learning chemistry with him because I got lost quite a lot,maybe he could teach slower or something,Idk:)
Jan is a science teacher. A science teacher of many enjoyable experience's. Of course you're going to get completely lost when trying to deconstruct his wild analogies. But that's half the fun. Quote " A virus is like a terrorist. The terrorist goes in to a plane and then multiplies hundreds and hundreds of times until the plane explode's and terrorist's are flying everywhere" and he is very helpful when you have no idea how to pass the damn bio internal's
hey quit hating on Mr. Syd!!! He so awsome he's my form teacher and science and explains very stuff well, though at times is pretty forgetful... Knows a lot about science
A mixed bag; half his students love him, half hate him. The former half tends to be the better students, and the later are destined to work at burger king for the rest of their lives.
He is awesome. we both are foreign which is a plus. He has good sense of humour and is willing to help anyone. I dont understand that he says im u-organised i have every hand-out and ote he gave us but apart from that yeah he is awesome
hahaha he was awesome but the whole looking at cooties close up was a bit weird and i refused to test sumfing on slaters but he was still vool and i learnt heaps
not great but he wanted to teach which is always handy
GO Mr SYD!! guys, dont blame him if u don't get it, his teaching method suits me, blah and im getting E's! If u dont get what he says then read a book!
hes a terrible teacher. i don't think he understands half of what he's meant to be teaching. his analogies are pretty funny though
He's funny!! (although not beacuse he tries to be) he has a fun personality but sometimes he confuses himself and then the class...but he has been cool to have as a teacher!
I'm really glad that I don't have him this year. Last year in yr. 10 we must have lost at least one spell a week because of his perpetual lateness.
Really loves and knows his subject, but loses his way and (accidentally?) misleads students sometimes. Can be arrogant when corrected
Fantastic teacher, "I will now rub the vinyl vigorously...very vigorously" LOL what a classic! but seriously a really good teacher all round!
