He taught me back in the 90s and transformed my French within weeks. I clearly remember his as the best teacher from my whole time at the school and a true gentleman with it. Thank you.
Probably one of the best teachers I've had so far
Very fun to have as a teacher and explains things very well!
He is wise, intelligent, witty, funny, charming, courteous, friendly, incredibly knowledgable about his subjects (and the Lord of the Rings). He could teach degree level French to Primary School and make it fun and worthwhile
Outstanding teacher, he loves his subject so much, not just when he taught me French but also German A level 2007 and drives his students to love the subject like he does. Action Grammaire and Elan, Zeitgeist + Hammer Grammar
Taught me French Lit A-level in 1999-2001. Incredibly good at teaching it. One of the greatest minds I've ever come across (probably on a par with Paul Ponder..). One of the wittiest as well.
what a legend. He can reel out comedy put down lines to anyone being disruptive AND is a very good teacher. Manages to keep lessons fun and easy. Get thom and all your problems with french will evaporate.
Quality teacher. Knew his onions, and played the fine line between discipline and going along with jokes perfectly (the 'save our blackboard' campaign, and the various pics, eg 'Thom-thoms', 'Thom-as the Tank Engine' etc)
Unbelievable intelligent and well-spoken. Knowledge of intimate LOTR details quite spooky. Excellent teacher and very courteous chap
I thought he was an amazing teacher - knew his stuff, had a great relationship with the class and got us all really well prepared ofr the end of year exams.
