I got an A in Inter Cert Science but it was no thanks to Bob. Mind you, one could ace that test if you ever had a Mechanno set or a book on nature. For L.C. subjects, avoid Bob.

Can't believe that Bob is still teaching. Bob sets low teaching standards and fails miserably to achieve them. Bob taught me maths in the eighties.

Terrible teacher but a good laugh (usually at him not with him). The "only white man to walk unarmed through Harlem and survive". He had some very tall tales.
