Very nice guy... maybe a bit too talkative but a very smart and interesting man. He marks quite fairly for an English teacher, my suggestion to him would be to maybe make your lessons a bit more interesting and if you are a student, just get on his good side an don't sleep in class or he will make you stand up for the rest of the class

We never really did anything in his class... I can't really think of one thing. He is a smart guy but a little to talkative. Not the easiest teacher but also not the hardest but for an english teacher he is pretty easy.

Nice guy overall, helpful, but a bit spaced out sometimes. Barely anything gets done in any of his classes, he usually tells boring stories all period and then complains about how the class is behind the other classes, he is disorganised, has a low tolerance towards opinions different from his, and chooses obvious favorites.

Mr. Kay is HUGE on respect. If you waltz into his class thinking you're guaranteed good marks then you're just stupid. He may seem dimwitted at times, yes you do hear a lot about Swaziland, but he's still the head of the English department and has earned it. He isn't confusing or strict so there's really no excuse for why anyone wouldn't do well in his course. Just be on task and attentive and you'll pass with flying colours.

Filter out the chaff and banter and pay attention to -his- critical take on the texts - if you give it a fair hearing and respond originally, you will get the marks you think you deserve. Otherwise...

He's a nice guy, but I have to say he's boring and his assignments really have nothing to do with what we've learned...mostly because he doesn't do much "teaching", but telling us boring stories.

Fun guy, not so great teacher. He gives out really random assignments and kinda doesn't make sense. He tries to help the best he can though if you don't get it. He marks easy first term, hard second.
