A man with a very intriguing, almost mysterious set of perspectives on various topics, Mr McKinney is thought-provoking, lovably eccentric and altogether very polite and respectful. The kind of teacher who allows you to feel like an adult instead of a child in a classroom, even if it's only for a lesson.

Mr. McKinney has a brilliant sense of humour. Honestly, I go into his class at times and the way he incorporates jokes into the lesson just really makes it that much more enjoyable. He knows so much when it comes to R.E and is always reading more to further increase that knowledge. One amazing thing about him though is that although he may be a Christian, he will never force his views on Christianity upon any of his students. Everyone in his class has the right to believe what they want to.

Although he will get you through the course he has a unique style of teaching which takes some getting used to and it is probable that you will dread the majority of his classes, if i'm honest.

Respects your views and opinions. Very slow at getting through the course and not always easy to understand but he will go over anything you have trouble with and try to help you through it. Great guy

Humiliated me once too, but at the same time humiliated himself. Generally a very encouraging, interesting and helpful teacher, knows his stuff inside out. Sound bloke overall.

A character. Full of entertaining, but repetitive, stories. Loves someone to stand up to him and make their views heard. Makes him a better teacher, apparently. A good bloke.
