He's very interesting and has taught me a lot, but it's hard to look past how badly prepared we were for the exam we were sitting
Phil is an engaging teacher who is clearly very passionate about philosophy, history and politics. In his class you, will learn not only that which you will need to pass the exam, but also how the material discussed relates the the classical world and current affairs alike. He allows students the freedom to come to their own conclusions, and in my experience, his laid-back style made the course not just a set of lessons, but an education. Also, he isn't remotely misogynistic. Cheers, Phil.
Does not help prepare students for exams what so ever
Phil is an interesting teacher. He does allow the class to go off on tangents and although this is not the best for exam preperation it does encourage individual thinking & an engagement with and love of philosophy that the curriculum does not. I understand why his attitude is disliked by some but I suspect many of his controversial statements are for the purpose to stimulate debate.
Also I was on the Paris trip: It was a great trip with hilarious events. Oh Seb I love you.
A good teacher, interested in the subjects he teaches and concerned to ensure his students do well. At times reveals a disturbing level of misogyny, however, and can be inappropriate.
An incredibly opinionated and interesting teacher who injects his own personality into potentially dull material and often goes off on random but fun tangents.
lessons with phillipe phil-op as we like to call him are always really interesting
He's very well, you know he has his own thought and if you don't agree. But he is a great chap.
