Excellent teacher all round. He kept me in school when I thought I couldn't do it anymore. I'd love to talk to him again.
Legend, nuff said. This guy is actually so incredibly good at what he does, and he's dedicated to his students which is awesome. Hangs out for hours after school to help work on projects, is always available if you need help with ANY coding (and he'll figure out your bugs in no time!). His course pack is, for some reason, really useful, interesting and solid learning material. Shame newer kids won't get to learn from this guy, there's not much of a replacement for people like OG Ridout.
Fair teacher, very knowledgeable, great at teaching computer science. He is a legend at solving any problem in your code at lightning speed. BEST TEACHER FOR COMPSCI DO RECOMMEND!!
Good Teacher, cold person.
He's an awesome teacher and knows a lot about the subject. If you try and understand what he is saying it all clicks. Highly recommend him!
Funny guy, excellent teacher, reasonable marker.
very fun teacher! the markings and tests are very fair. extra help is always there when you need it :) the best teacher in RHHS so far!!
Words cannot describe this man. Fantastic teacher!
Fantastic teacher! I had him for grade 11 and 12 AP computer science, and he is one of the best and smartest teachers I had ever had the privilege to know! Passionate about the content and loves teaching. He should be working at Google! :D
Awesome. Always emails us to have a great weekend and is always cheerful in class
Everyone loves him? I agree. He's a very supportive teacher. A bit on the tough side though, if you can't stand a hard course, don't take it!
Best teacher ever, great guy, will stay extra hours to help students with their programming etc.
Very good at explaining things and is really knowledgeable. Assignments are challenging and fun.
have a good 1 year off!! (even though you probably won't read this)
Such a great teacher! He explains everything so clearly and genuinely likes being around students. You're lucky if you get him as a teacher. :)
The best compsci teacher I've ever had. Fair and encouraging. Tests are always fair, goes over material alot. Very commited to his students. Willing to stay afterschool very late to help you.
Great teacher; happy to be a student of his. VERY picky... you'll get bad marks for not having your code AS efficient as possible... P.S. on tests, don't forget semi-colons!
One of the best teachers I've ever had. Lots of fun to be in his class and he cares about his students. Teaches the material really well and gives you confidence, but he can be picky at some times.
Really a great teacher. He helps you until ur satisfied. last time, he helped me and my friends untill 6:30!!! who does that??
Best com-sci teacher ever!He really knows his stuff. I found him better than any of my university com-sci profs. He is picky, but reasonable.I had huge edge in U after taking his course in high school
Amazing teacher, although really picky! Loves computer science, but on every assignment, tells u how to do everything, leaving nothing for you to do yourself! His lessons are boring and long!!!
Really picky but a really really good and helpful teacher. And despite his pickiness, he can be a very easy marker. (You will never understand what that means until you get him)lol
Great teacher. Explains everything beautifully, and if you understand it the tests are simple. Fun guy who simple enjoys teaching and computer science. Ask and he'll answer
A great guy that shows what teachers are supposed to be like, helpful dedicated and smart
he is a great teacher. If i had trouble with somthing. He would help me with every step untill i understood what was going on
He's a awsome teacher and very dedicated to helping his students, even stays at school very late to help ppl for their final projects. Very smart.
One of the nicest teachers I have ever had. He knows his material inside out and will go out of his way to help you. Also a really funny guy!
Best Teacher period. Take his grade 12 ICS4M, you will be glad you did. If you do well in ICS4M, you will have a guaranteed advantage in university, no Question
wow, he catches everything! but is a great teacher, very clear, and fair with the marks. however, on the days when we learn theory, it's hella boring!
Classic style teacher believes in principles of teaching. Don't try to pull anything on him though...About the best ICS4M class we ever had course, median > 90% ...
Very easy! Love the use of overheads. Class was easy :) Nice to his students :)
good teacher, but very picky with mistakes, tends to drone on and on
ridout is all pro programmer. great teacher loves to help students. loves JAVA.
Rumor has it that he's an engineer actually who decided to teach instead. He's actually pretty sharp so don't try to fool him. Knows his stuff, nice guy.
Compiles source code in his head. Watch for your imperfections or marks off.
Its the only class i want to do in well becauser mr. ridout rocks
nice guy, good teacher. best computer teacher in the school.
