Classes were unstructured and ambiguous. What should have been the most interesting subject was turned into a battle to stay awake. Did not do what he was paid to do.

Thought he was a brilliant teacher. Really made English interesting. I wonder does he still wear those black pin stripped suits.

I quite liked Tony. He definitely loves the subject and he'll bend over backwards for you if you make the effort. Sound.

Tony is an outstanding teacher. He knows his stuff and is appropriately demanding. Always has his radar on.

This guy would appear to be a good teacher but took a dislike to people that played sports, borders or anyone that was different....like himself.

Great teacher if you showed an interest in English. If you didn't then he'd show very little interest in teaching you.

Incapable as a teacher. Awful pity as he had charisma by the bucket load. Class would always lull one into a relaxed mood. Best sampled on a friday evening.

Loved going to his classes, as they were a laugh a minute. He is really good at teaching Paper 2 of the Leaving but terrible at paper 1
