Without knowing French at all at the beginning of the year, i've learned so much in such a short amount of time that it's quite amazing. But sometimes he forgets that we have homework from other teachers too, which results in a massive amount of French.
Excellent teacher and can always bring a chuckle or two to the class.I have learnt more with this teacher in a year than I would have with any other teacher for the whole junior cert
Seems to forget that there are other subjects and piles on work! Good teacher for English but you will fail every other subject. Sees himself as god....
One of the best teachers in Rice College! Influenced me greatly in my future career. Great memories of English classes and gave me a huge love of the language. He was respected by all in our year!! Did not have him for French much to my regret I had a woman!!!!!!!!
This man is a legend..will never forget him as long as a live...Have the utmost respect for him as a teacher and a person..one of the funniest guys i have ever met in my life..Hero
Savage teacher really committed to the job will guarantee to improve anybody at french if they are willing to co-operate
Legend doesnt even describe it no one as good. Nearly two decades later i could still do leaving french and english
great teacher. ruled somewhat by fear. i still recall the tension. had a mean streak as well. overall id say he must be one of the best teachers in the country.
after spending 7 years in 3rd level he is still the best and most inspiring teacher i ever had. I can still speak french without having been there in years. pity i had a bearded english teacher
Good teacher but really puts pressure on the class. Expected to get A`s in every class test and piece of homework. But the exam results were great.
Very Tough but fair teacher. his methods were hard but you knew your stuff at the end of it. Glad I had him for leaving cert English in 1988!
One of the best teachers there is. Firm and fair, and expects the best from everyone. You won't go wrong with Jive!
Best Teacher I ever had. French and English. I'll admit I didnt think so at the time tho!
Best language teacher in school, forces you to do the work you need to do to do well in French! There's no other way to do it
Could still take my leaving cert english paper. He is not the bete noir that he first seems. Best teacher i had great craic outsdide school
Had him for French and English in his early years at the school, he relied on people learning things off parrot fashion too much.
One of the best teachers ive had.if you are a hard worker and want to get on, gerrys the teacher to help you. excellent french teacher!!
Sometimes is a bit mean but overall a really good teacher! His class is a really active one were you can really participate in!
a very meticulous and pernicidy teacher! pity we didnt know the french for intercom!!
Can put a bit of pressure on students and is a bit un help ful but stick with him and u will be ok. D 1 thing u dont do is forget ure french listening book
strict but good. every class was the same "ouvres des fentres" and i must do my french exercise in future! repetition repetition rpetition!
double french usually very depressing but a good teacher
I have to say very strict, but very fair... Believes in the old fashioned methods, gets results even if it means forcing the memorsing of *everything*
Good English teacher as well. Still remember the auld quotes from Yeats......
A really good teacher but probably the most stressful class
Great teacher, good methods. I dunno what the others are saying bout stress. If you did your work you were grand
