For chemistry, he is not a great teacher. He just gave us a brief account of each chapter like a lecture, but we won't know the depth of a topic until we read the textbook ourselves, which is tedious.

I had the great pleasure of having Pat (Podge) in the Christian Brothers Eblana many years ago. A gentleman and a great example of what a teacher and mentor should be.
