Knows his stuff and was pretty good at A level, if you could resist falling asleep. Such a monotone voice!
A good teacher knows how to make his students care about the subject he teaches. Alas Mr Holland does not posess this gift and therefore falls short. I have no doubt about his subject knowledge but his presentation leaves a lot to be desired, especially considering the rather monotone delivery of most lessons.
basically.. my class consisted of him writing stuff on the board (from a text book) and us copying it down, didnt learn anything, despite all our efforts, teaching methods are too old... boring!
He's boring as anything and you don't learn much from him!
He can be a bit boring but hes actually ok, even though every1 complains about not learning anything, those people don't actually pay ANY attention! I'm doing not bad at Chemistry...
Mr Holland is a great teacher, but I'm afraid I did find some of his lessons in the lower school quite boring - this could have been due to the subject matter, I don't know. Highly knowledgable man!
