A great guy who who had a genuine love of English
He had a high opinion of himself and his teaching methods, however despite his independent thinking he was not very helpful. His ability to put down and publically humiliate students put me off an interesting subject which I now love. It was only after leaving his class that the boy who was predicted to Fail got an A in his Leaving Certificate. Im flabbergasted that this idiot is still teaching.
Would be alot better if he listened and didnt embaress you but he's a good teacher overall
hes a good teacher the only people who are rating him badly are the lazy messers plus he makes english interesting with his insults to the idiots
reason i love english and film. most fun in school i ever had. got a2 too. great genuine man.
I left Mary's in 1989 and I think about the issues Sean discussed. There is only one other teacher I can say that of. A truly independent thinker.
Very amusing classes. People would get so frustrated in debates with him and it made me smile. We thought we knew it all...."Right sit down please"
I hate him. He is a pain and,so sarcastic. When you are right he says you are wrong and he neveris clear on what he says
humiliates you in class if you do somthing wong and puts you under alot of pressure
This guy is tough but his methods are amazing. I passed my leaving and am studying in college because of him and some oterhs in the school. teach on sir!
Excellent teacher, very sound, but a very conceited man. Ask him to recount his stories about backpacking and sleeping rough in the Bishops gardens...
His JC short stories were great! Saki and Walter Mitty. Poor standard of teaching. Doesnt listen to all the people in the class.
all his 6th year class goes to the institute so it looked like his results were superb with an average of a b2. still a lovely man
i just don't think he is clear or helpful, i had to get the actual mock from another teacher because he decided to make his own test.
Best teacher in mary's, his media studies class in transition year was the only thing I still think about from school
Seans way or the highway. He is always right.However most of the class dislike him immensely. Probably wanted to teach at Harvard or Oxford but couldnt hack it.
Sometimes difficult to get on with but of all the English teachers I had, has the best insight into the subject.
very good teacher, can be tough but if you put the work in and showed enthusiasm, he responed very posititvely,very clever and funny guy
very harsh. tried to get across idea of thinking for yourself, and subtleties involved in material. Very good teacher if a little too cosy sitting on the tables
Can be a great teacher if you get on the right side of him. But most people dont! In which case he is horrible!
all those guys r wafflin,he makes u tink bout english n dats y dey dont like him. hes a legend. and SO Sarcastic. v funny
Obviously not the most popular man but if anyone actually listened to him as a teacher they would see he is one of the best
great teacher, its only the younger years that dont like him. he does suffer from know-it-allism though.
worst teacher in the school, i hope he can read this. he is ignorant, he does not listen to any one else even though that is part of being a teacher.
