Mr Holmes...does not speak up in class and it is hard to hear what he says, he also rarely explains new material. When he is asked questions, he usually does not give an actual answer and often smirks and laughs at students. If a student asks a question DO NOT reply with "GOOGLE IT."
mr holmes is probably the only down to earth teacher at cawthra yes he has some flaws but he is a great person and an excellent teacher if u want a teacher that cares about your academics and your well being he's the guy
Worst science teacher in the school. He made grade 9 science impossible for me and my class. His lessons are impossible to follow and his tests are extremely difficult. SWITCH OUT OF HIS CLASS IMMEDIATELY.
Almost all his lessons are off the board or from the textbook, for better or for worse. His tests can be a little tough. He's hilarious though. A really chill dude. At the end of the day I loved his course and learned a lot.
Being In Mr. Holmes class is hard. He is a very soft spoken man and all you do for the whole class is copy from the blackboard. It also seems like he favours the female students over the male ones but i could be mistaken. (also the only way you will learn is if you read the textbook. His lessons are nothing)
I enjoy his classes and when he works out with me. Great teacher, all you need to do is ask him to speak up or for extra help and he'd be so happy to help you.
Great teacher .. fair ... and will help you but you have to want to work and do well. Great man
He's an ok teacher. Not very good at explaining though. Reading the textbook is the only way youre gonna learn. Doesnt give much homework, though. Weird sense of humour, and a bit nicer to girls than guys. If you talk back to him, he'll start an arguement with you. Best part is: He's not qualified to teach science. He was originally trained to be a phys ed teacher. Makes sense. Built like a bull.
Hey, give the guy some slack! I think he's pretty cool. True, he does speak quietly, but his notes are very helpful, and he's got the funniest sense of humor if you actually talk to him.
i dont really like mr holmes teaching skills.. he just puts notes on the board and does not explain it very well..
yeah, to keep it simple, the man cannot teach :) that would be all.
haha definately really quiet, but a true gangsta. hes such a sick person, but from what i heard, he doesnt teach the things needed to do well in the exams.. i donno, i still think hes sick. if you know anything about wrestling, talk about it to him, he'll stop class to talk about it ahaha.. BEST FRIENDS haha
He's one of those teachers who I think really cares about the students. You know how most teachers forget your name quickly after you're done their class? He still remembers mine and greets me in the hall after several years. I have him again and am looking forward to it. The only thing to suggest would be to sit near the front if you want to hear, because he's really quiet.
ah man hes a tank, hes the best who cares what others say, you will like him.
Oh boy! Mr. Holmes.. well, he is EXTRAORDINARY! Without a doubt baby! He used to be an olympic wrestler, making him the essence of manliness. You are all just jealous that you are not as valiant as him! (although he doesn't teach me very well, he is still the only teacher that makes me laugh a LOT)
Your a great guy......but I have learned nothing at all in physics class, the only timed I learned something was when we had a supply teacher.
ummm.... why dont you actually start doing your job and teach.
Hes got sum beef with me just because i dont pretend te be some science nerd!stay on his good side and use big words, act like the only thing you were born to is be in his class
hahahaha you gotta love holmes...funniest teacher ever....if he likes you the class is a breeze if not good luck getting through it...he likes people who help out....get on his good side...talk to him joke around with him....associate with people he likes ect....
I hate mr holmes so much he picks on me all the time he doesnt ever leave me alone like sometimes just give your students a break. For example if the whole class is up and talking and i get up one time or i talk he only yells at me and he looks for me in the crowd when every one else is standing. All im saying is that just dont be like that with your students sit them al down dont pick on one.
Mr Holmes your a really cool guy, but you teaching skills can use some work. If you look over your class averages for the exams you will see why.
Holmes is too cool for school!!! An amaaazing guy, but pray that you're independent enough to teach yourself in his class. Prepares you well for university cuz you gotta be on the ball and really love the material to do well in his class.
Hmm. Not the best teacher ever - but an awesome person!!
Holmes is the greatest! The problem is with his students tho - it's their first time taking gr. 11 bio and a lot of them are doing poorly because they're not cut out for science! Dun't blame him for ur lack of understanding - go an take social sciences
Holmes is awesome! If you're doing badly in his class its because you aren't working hard enough so quit blaming him for your bad marks.
He's an okay guy but he definately got his degree off a sports scholarship. He knows nothing and makes science boring. Avoid his class with your life.
hes a great guy and everything but not such a great teacher. hes not really good at expressing stuff in science and ya
Your a really nice and amazing person, just not so great at teaching...sorrie to say but yeah stick to wrestling
Whud up Tug. Keepin' it real in da science aspect of school! Fo sheezy my neezy. Love ya!! you funny, funny man.
Very helpful, but you need to do your work. Don't expect an easy mark. Very personable.
Mr. Holmes is by far the greatest teacher at Cawthra Park. He is a fantastically funny guy.
