Ian Judd was a great man and an even greater teacher. Tough exterior but a very gentle kind man. I hope whatever he's doing, that he's happy.
Reading School through and through. He will be missed.
This style of teaching should return. Comes down like a tonne of bricks when you're in the wrong. Provides clear explanations when you're wrong and doesn't mind diverting into more details when everyone's caught up. A straight up legend who despite me acing his course still cared that I didn't write notes.
Legend. Mr Judd is the guy who will always be at Reading school - the day he leaves is the day the sky will fall down. I've never been taught by him, as he's become head of Examinations - but he's still around all the time, and stands at the front of big school. He exudes an aura of immense calm on all the students - it's very comforting to have somebody who actually KNOWS WHAT THEY'RE DOING in the exam! Such a great guy - had a pleasant discussion on whether it's rows or columns that we sit in.
Legend. Coursework was so easy. "For today's lesson I want you to copy exactly what I've written on the whiteboard... Excellent, you've finished your coursework." Awesome.
Mr. Judd is the best teacher I've ever had - and one of the only reasons I went to university.
Mr Judd is the best teacher I've ever had at school. He really does care about the welfare of his students, but doesn't let this get in the way of laying down the smackdown on people who aren't paying attention. All teachers should be like this.
A great teacher, not afriad to ever take the easy route and teach you just what you need for the exam, he teaches you so you understand the subject. I will always remember the colour of CuCl4 and the relevance of D orbital splitting and taught a lot of stuff that even my friends at undergrad chemistry at Oxford didn't cover until their 2nd yea r (which made me feel awfully superior being a lowly biologist for those wonderful 5 minutes). Also does a great lesson on the internal combustion engine
Mr. Judd is good because he cares about the students... A novel but appreciable approach.
I definitely agree with the 'old school' approach, which is rather effective with us. He and Mr. Cousins make agreat duo.
Mr Judd may well be the best teacher I had ever had. His 'old school' approach is refreshing and very easy to learn from.
