He's dead scary in first year and he still can be in second if you haven't copped I what he wants from a class. But if you do what your asked and give a good effort he's grand. It's even better when your actually good at the subject. He can phrase is questions awfully and gets annoyed when no one has an answer or he gets to many wrong ones, always likely to start rambling but he's a funny lad

A reasonable teacher, that gets a lot of negativity, but that's because people, don't meet him halfway. He's a looper at times, in fact all the time, but there are worse teachers.

"constant fear of him" See that's the thing mate, once you stop fearing him, he isn't at all scary. By the time I am finished he will be my butler and I will be in charge!

I have respect for him as he is an excellent teacher but he is also chicken oriental. A good man to have at a table quiz. Capable of amazing displays of rage.
