An outstanding modern languages teacher. Yes, he was a bit scary but he keeps you on your toes. He knows what you need to do to do well and he is focused on getting you there. He pushes hard but he gets results. Results are what matter.
Too good at his subject! Couldn't understand how those of us who struggled with language didn't understand things. I was terrified for 3yrs every time I had a lesson with him. My confidence was 0 which gave me my only D at GCSE!
