Had him as a teacher for my five years in the bish. Inspired me to pursue a course in commerce and I am now in my final year of my international commerce in NUIG. A very good teacher. Alternative but uniquely effective style of teaching in which he tries to finish the course numerous times before revising thoroughly in the months prior to exam. Well organized and can be quite funny.

Has suffered lately from a lack of class practice but on his day, if the going is good to firm, can be a real contender. Bright prospect for the future.
