"Play like the Brazilians" good advice from a man who knew nothing of football. During his tenure as puppet coach of Mount Temples first ever football team, his inspiring decisions included; Letting the captain pick the squad or any of his mates, disappearing for two hours during a training session and coming back "merry" with a bag of jaffa cakes and orange juice cartons , missing out on the A team being annihilated 5-2 by the B team and my hatrick. He was a good maths teacher though...

Derek is quite good at technical graphics and has a great personality. However, he forces himself to be angry in situations that displease him; ergo, he puts on a terrible act of being angry. All-in-all, Mc. Nelis is an excellent teacher!

Mr mc Neilis was my junior certificate mathamatics teacher. With his clear and understandable approach to teaching maths he held my attention and respect throughout the years and struck me as a very sympathetic , helpful man who helped me pass my maths exam in the junior cert.

This guy is a real teacher, he is one naturally. In fairness, teaching maths is not the easiest when so many of us used to have 10 min attention spans at most.

I think it frustrates him that some people are just unteachable, loves his maths and has some weird ways of getting the point across. love his trig dance moves.

Okay teacher but seems a bit disorganised at times, which rubs off on his teaching. Will help you, but you need to ask him at the end of class.

In my opinion this man could not teach his way out of a paper bag, he lacks clarity of purpose and has no control over a class.
