You guys are talking about two different teachers. Mr Richards teaches biology, and is great by all accounts. Mr Richardson teaches physics, and while he is passionate and a great teacher, he seems to struggle with class control.

Nice enough chap but has no idea how to explain things to people who don't understand waves and light!! He tried, props for that, but he failed. I'm surprised I passed the paper.

Nice dude and really good teacher but usually he only pays attention to one side of the class. (generally the louder side). Gets quite irritating actually.

He is a very good teacher but sometimes is just a bit enthusiastic. He has said the word "cool" too many times. HE enjoys talking about his private life even though we really dont care.

great because he never gives up on a student no matter if they're passing or failing, 24 credits or zero! he puts 110% into his classes not only to help us pass, but to make them fun! he also has incentives/reward schemes [i.e music time, what taste! Led Zeppelin, RHCP, radiohead, pink floyd.... this guy is great]. Regarding calculations, i remember a time [5th form] where he got a simple equation wrong, and i had it right , so wat? ppl make mistakes, he corrected himself promptly, apologized and continued!

Stop dissing this man, hes cool, everyone makes mistakes hes a cool teacher, ery helpful, but to be honest he needs to slow down a little bit, there is a reason some of us fail and its cause were always "ahead" of where we should be. Keep it up sir nice job

A really great teacher. Mr Richardson is so passionate about what he teaches and manages to find ways to get his students passionate about science too. He makes our classes fun and interesting and always says things like "cool aye!" and "isn't it fascinating?!".

Mr Richardson was a good teacher......untill credits were involved. He is a great person but often his lessons are hollow and he skips over the hard stuff real fast, then comments on how much earlier we are finished than the other classes. Fustrating!!!

Mr Richardson is a really good teacher, he always makes and effort to make our classes fun and interesting. I love how he is so passionate about what he's teaching and is always saying "isn't that cool!?!" We have practical lessons as mucha as possible and are often watchin videos, he always wants excuses just to watch a cool movie in class! He always keeps his cool and never yells. He is great and even though im not that great at science he manages to make it interesting.

Not too bad a teacher sometimes but mostly he seems incapable of teaching himself out a paper bag. He gets simple equations wrong (eg 100km/h=360m/s ??!!). I'll ask him a question and he diverge off the topic and make me even more confused. on one occasion he actually gave a test to make us fail, there was some sort of reason behind it but i don't know...

I had him for biology in 6th form and found him very helpful and nice. The problem is when you don't do your homework instead of being angry he is really disappointed which makes you feel way worse!!
