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)

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.
