Mar 16, 2012 Although he was never my 'official' English teacher, Mr Hodgart encouraged me to read literature when I decided not to continue with English in 6th Year at secondary school. My main memory is that he gave me 'Life of Galileo' by Brecht to read and which I very much enjoyed. Subsequently, as a student at Glasgow University, I had the opportunity to see this play. It was a brilliant and very moving performance and was something that I would have never considered going to see but for Mr Hodgart. Flag Rating

Sep 01, 2011 Obsessed with scottish literature, unfortunately unable to discern between good or bad. Very strict and not easy to talk to. There is a big world out there, we shouldn't miss out on the big picture fo Flag Rating

Jun 07, 2007 Fantastic teacher. His classes were relaxed, engaging and most of all enjoyable to be in. Many topics do have a scottish bias, but this makes them even better. While other people are sturggling to relate to shakespear, Mr Hodgart is taking you through a burns poem, with passion and a unique undersanding of what was happening in the world around the poet. I just hope theres no mistakes in this.... Flag Rating

Mar 18, 2007 a teacher who deserves alot of respect. the man knows what hes talking about. However he has a highly scottish biased, but this is due to his school life where all you learned was shakespeare & other english poets. Cant blame him for being proud. He can also be extremely childish, & huffy. Flag Rating
