Mr. Bateman was the best teacher I ever had, by far. He was my form teacher for five years. Smart students wanted to be in his class, dumb student hated him. He rode a scooter to school and laughed in
I was in one of his first classes at TBC in 1996, 6th Form English, fantastic teacher, dragged me out of lousy school C results to great 6th form mark
when you actually LOOK FORWARD to Mr Bateman's classes.... that says something for the man! He is hugely entertaining, and is second to none in Media Studies.
I wonder if he got the promotion to head of english department that he so clearly deserved. A breath of fresh air into the classroom with his original teaching methods.
mr batemans the best english teacher i ever had at TBC hes the man hes funny, cool and gets you through the year shot bate dogg
Going to college I didn't really enjoy english but in 5th form I had him as my teacher and he made me enjoy english if only for the days I actually went to school. He encourages students to do well and think outside the square.
Mr B changed my life and led me on the road to salvation with his absolutely genius Mr T method. It's the most useful thing I've learnt since walking, and is far more than just two lines. Don't get me started on mind maps, which are 1000 times better than brain storms, and not the same thing at all.
Mr. Bateman is probably the best guy ever he is the freaking man!!!!
He is a great teacher - a really funny guy who really cares about his students. Really enjoyed his classes - it was the one thing that kept me in school. Entertaining and really educational. Thanks!
Bateman is an excellent teacher. He is both knowledeable and humorous, forming greating relationships with his older students and teaching the young ones how school is supposed to be. Thumbs up!
Totally under rated by students, hes no where near as bad as most people make out- he's actually one of TBC's best teachers...probably the best
Mr N Bateman showed me the Mr T technique which changed my life and led me on the way to salvation. Mr T is the most important thing I've learned in my life since how to walk. Thanks big B.
He's very enthusiastic about what he does, however his speeches seem to take up the whole period, and whilst entertaining, don't let the student get on with his work. Overall a very good teacher
Top man, people like him are the reason why I am now a teacher.
Baters! You are the man! If it wasn't for him, I probably wouldn't be at film school right now and achieving well. He'll take it out of his own time to help students that are willing to learn.
Best teacher ever. Actually gives a damn about helping students, not just about getting to pass his class.
Mr. Bateman is the best teacher ever, he knows his stuff and he's a damn funny guy. He gets increasingly more awesome as you get older.
