Ridge is a very knowledgeable teacher who is kind and warm-hearted. He is now elderly and struggles to gain control over the class at times. This of course is due to the immature teenage boys who take physics. Mr Ridge gives very detailed notes for revision. Students would learn a lot in his class if they gave him a chance.

More than anything I just feel pity. He is an intelligent teacher with plenty to offer but struggles to connect with students. CANNOT control troublemakers so classes are constantly disrupted.

Mr Ridge has an amazing amount of knowledge. If you are willing to listen to what he has to say you will find you learn so much and the physics course is easy.

I can only compare Mr Ridge to an enclopedia. He has so much information but there's just no interesting way he can convey it to you. Try reading an enclopedia for an hour a day - it'll be the equivalent of being in Mr Ridges class.

Mr Ridge has been known on occasion to throw things at students.... it might just be me, but i find that a little unacceptable (unless he is actually on the topic of projectiles, which he wouldn't do a practical for anyway)

His classes are without a doubt a monotonic bore, but the material he delivers is to the point and greatly assits for exams. He'll further clarify things that people are unsure of, but not surprisingly has much more patience and time for people that actually show him a bit of respect in the class.

he can be quite aggressive when people wont listen or fool around, but apart from that a pretty good teacher, but yeah definitely more for the audio learners as hands on is limited. he can be quite offensive personally if he thinks you're the culprit for something so stay on his good side. monotonous: yes. lame jokes: yes. information superhighway: yes. whether he can hold your attention long enough to teach is another story

Mr. Ridge certainly knows what he is talking about when it comes to Physics, but unfortunatly I think he lacks the flair of engaging the students in a session of learning. His notes are very comprehensive which is excellent for exams, but perhaps he needs to limit his text and intead actually explain the concepts to a better degree so that they are understood before moving on to a new topic.
