once devoted a class to playing guitar, even invited mr clark to play and strumed a tune himself, then dissapered for the rest of the year, mr tracy took over & was just as good.
Arrogant, Aloof and not interested in teaching anyone other than "his type" of student
you could hear a pin drop in his class, he creates an awful atmosphere for learning. Clearly has anger issues and embarassed himself quite often.You're just another number to him
Very unsociable man, appears to be very bitter about life. Didn't really care about his students, he didn't even bother to learn half their names even in 6th yr
a good honours teacher despite what they say. sharp sarcastic man - funny.
A good teacher if you are an intelligent student. Gives excellent notes but is very unapproachable if a student has a problem. West Brit.
Intelligent man. Not bothered teaching! Rewrote the examples from the book onto the blackboard and then got you to do questions from the book? Teach? Not Des!
Please retire and give your students a chance,without grinds none of them would pass!
Awful Teacher....enough said....worst I've ever come across....
A brilliant teacher! Not a good pass teacher but for honours students he was the best. Maths was my best mark so he must have done something right!!
Brilliant teacher! Alright fellows!! Looks like most people didn't get him. I thought he was outstanding.
In the 1980s the school treated Dessie Fortune most appropriately - he only took Honours. Judging by some comments, he has been wasted on the mediocre of recent
I used to skip his class cause he was so bad. I did the course almost entirly by myself!
An absolute waste of space. He regards teaching as a chore. He's from Tipperary- puts on that English accent when he's teaching!
He is an extremely intelligent man. No vision. I am a sucessful engineer with a string of A results in Maths in college. He told me I would never pass honors LC
Great teacher, Probably better suited to higher as expects students to be able to keep up.
one of the most boring teachers in the school,if he is not absent then he is droning on and on about the same things all the time.teaches u things you dont need
Spent alot of his time absent when he taught me so wasn't good for my results. I don't think he likes his job too much.
Obviously intelllgent, and lets his class know. Gives good notes but doesnt teach much. Good teacher if youre a strong student but bad one if youre weak
Not a good higher level teacher he should teach lower if anything at all
doesnt get enough credit.gives clear concise notes which are invaluable as a study aid. great teacher if only hed loosen up and interact more.
Mr. Fortune hates teaching and it shows. He is very unhelpful and very condascending. He just couldn't care less about you. He has his own problems, though..
a good enough higher level maths teacher, he gets the stuff across to me
Fortune is a mediocre at best teacher.... when he comes in, his absenteeism is unnacceptable
Good teacher and doesnt get enough credit--- he lives for maths and knows his stuff
