The best teacher I had in St Peters or anywhere for that matter.
Doesn't provide students with reams of paper to learn off, but he teaches how to critically think and analyse any text. Not all students like his methods but he teaches the way which students should be taught, you learn how to think with Ruane.
I'm in my second year at University now and I often refer back to some of the ways Ruane taught us how to look at things.
One major character flaw is that he supports Spurs.

Sean Ruane was one of the best teachers I had at that school. He never had a lot of free time but what time he did have he spent with anyone who needed him.
