Mr Gill is a very rude man , he picks on certain students in the class and holds a grudge against them always even when they are trying there best.
If someone is 30 seconds late for class he makes a huge deal of it for about 5-10 minutes and then goes on about how the students waste his class time......
If you ask him a question that’ he might think is stupid he will tell you to shut up and stop talking. He never explains things clearly aswell

He is in speaking a good teacher but can be very hard on students often. At one point during every year there is a time were he just gives all over the place and then for the rest of the year he dosen't really take anything seriously. I'd give a 5/10

Well the positives he's good for the oral and is grand for the rest of the course he also seems to genuinely care The negatives he stands staring for five minutes if your 20 seconds late then complains that we waste time He forces you to work on a computer even though the sites are crap If anyperson gets in trouble he labels them a troublemaker and picks on them from then on The last is he debates anything in class and wastes time
