Downesy is great! He's always got the whole class involved in everything and is so enthusiastic about his subject. He's really helpful and explains everything clearly. Maybe he has 'favourites' (really just people he knows) at the start of the year, but he involves everyone equally by the end of it.
one of the best geography teachers ive ever had, he guided us through all our coursework and really helped us get good grades :D
I disagree with the favourites thing. He includes everyone in his lessons and they're always enjoyable.
LEGEND! He's awesome :D Teaches stuff in a clear way, always asks what we think and adapts lessons to how we feel they need to be. I wouldn't really agree with the favourites thing. I think he includes everybody, he's a decent guy.
Decent bloke but yes had his favourites and that was 25 years ago.
Absolute legend. Awesome at what he does. Knows it. Teaches it. We learn it. Get the grades for it. Simple.
hes a really great teacher - learnt a lot from him and always happy to help with everyones problems.
Had a very popular following, although unfair at times with his 'favourites'
Had him as a tutor last year, was a great help with work and persuaded me to geog at uni!
