If you dont understand what hes teaching , is your fault not his .
Thats the only bad thing I can say about him .
It was straight forward maths and logic to him , so he didnt tolerate much misunderstanding .
Not good to be afraid to ask a question .
Apart from that he was a walking computer with a personality

I had the pleasure of having Mr Canavan as my class master for 5 years. He saved my life. Literally. Sometimes teachers do alot more than teach subjects. Now get out to the line!!!

Really hard to talk to. If you try and explain why your late or anything, he'll just pass it off and put you down on report or something. I don't like him!

Scary but effective. I stared out the window for three years and he got me an honour in higher level JC maths. So long as you don't tick him off, he's not such a bad guy.

Sarcastic, destructive of belief that a pupil should have in their abilities. In his own words to me, is capable of doing much better.
