Arguably the most intelligent man around, It would surprise me if he there is a word is the dictionary that he doesn't know, witty sense of humour too
I had him for English and classics , the best teacher I ever had. I could not stand English as a subject boring poems and stories full of plot holes , but his teaching was so good I liked it. Also worth mentioning students that did not have him would try bunk into his classics class as he was the best. (Ashfield college 1992-93)
Taught me in mid 1980s. English and Latin. Best teacher that I ever had
The best teacher I have ever had. He acknowledged the fact that students learn in different ways, and he catered for them all. I had him for classics and I ended up getting a B. I also got a B in English as a result of his teaching and guidance in that classics class, as well as the english notes he gave me. Absolute gent.
Still teaching to this day. They do say that Hobbits live very long :P Without a doubt the most knowledgable, experienced teacher I have ever had. Hilariously funny too
John understood I hated Greek, he let me do my own thing in that period. Good man, Thank you.
All questions in the classics exam 100% right - what a man.
fantastic teacher. every classics prediction 100% correct
good teacher but doesn't listen enough to questions and destroys anyone who asks them. not very helpful
he is the best teacher in the school ! he is a inspiration ! he is retired but staying with my class in 3rd year !
without a doubt the greatest teacher ever.had him in ashfield and he is brill such a legend and totally sound
harshest marker ever. we invited him to our class dinner and the guy just "NO I DON'T DO THAT SORT OF THING". Great teacher though.
awesome, had him for ancient greek, ended up getting amazing marks thanks to his methods. Also learned advanced english and I don't even have him for that!
legend. Great teacher and a great man. He hated Wheeler with a passion though! Hope he's well. Stuart (OB95)
loved this man! was failing classics until had him for grinds total genius!!!Zero to hero john!!!!!!!!!!
Great teacher had him for 6 years and a very sound bloke really witty aswell
Had this man for both Latin and English in PCC over 20 yrs ago and I've still got his hand written notes! Without doubt one of the best teachers I've had. Tack sharp
The teacher who taught me how to learn. Witty as they come, sharp as a tack and one of the first to really know what to do to actually get results in an exam.
The man changed my life. Thought me how communicate. Cannot praise him enough
Good teacher. Told me I was going to fail English. Got a B2. Did'nt own or read the prescribed novel, wrote 2 essays in 2 years. Fail indeed.
I started out hating his guts but he is really a fantastic teacher and not a Harsh bloke at all
The best English teacher i have ever had. I was failing English in fifth year and with many thanks to him in my 5th and 6th years ending 2003 i did brilliant.
great man! have him for grinds! best teacher i have ever come across.
For such a good teacher, how come none of the other comments are spelt correctly? Eh?
Fantastic teacher. I left Belvo in 02 and have not come across a better educator in three years of university. Got my A1 because of his dedication.
Without a doubt the best teacher i have ever come across i never forgot anything we were thought just had a great way of getting things across
Had him for grinds in ashfield four years ago,i still remember him,the most inspiring teacher i ever met
I have never heard the word Caudex said with such conviction

Outstanding teacher, brilliant and original.Sets the standard by which others measured. Conor Mullarkey
A truly fabulous teacher. A little odd but a great guy. What a temper.
Takes major leaps of faith in Greek L.C. - worked out my year, major disaster in other years. Will always remember him being hit by the car in greece.
Fantastic teacher. One of the most quick witted people I've ever had the misfortune to lock swords with!
Such a legend, one of the best teachers in the school.
