Mick, what a man! Such a genuine man who makes sure he gets to know his students. He puts on tutorials throughout the year to ensure that everyone is confident with all the material! He was always asking me if I understood the material and if there was anyway he could improve his teaching. Notes are very condensed - good for the struggling student. I don't think I would've gotten an A1 without the use of his textbook as well as his notes.

Was unsure about him at the beginning of the yr but he is a really good teacher. Although do get his book, his notes alone wont get you the A1. His classes are so entertaining. Legend!
