He does not teach you a third of what is on the final exam so learn the technology unit throughout the year cause you're not learning it with him...
I like Downey but he often goes way too fast in Physics class. Sometimes I would like a better, more patient explanation. Also, he often assumes that his students knows things when they might not. Still, an energetic, funny, and passionate teacher with a lot of knowledge.
A teacher is supposed to teach, so you cant possibly call this guy a teacher.
Not good teaching. Too many "true stories" not that knowledgeable very strict, not flexible and his classes are boring
okay ready? guys okay okay ready? ready?
other than that, great teacher, a little tough -- but just go see him if you have ANY difficulty.. i sucked at chem, didnt seek help, and did badly. still a g
deals with guys the right way unlike most paranoid teachers
the downeys have an ocd for repetition. tom says 'scuze me a lot. mike says okay okay okay guys guys
ya ready? ya ready? k here goes. downeys for the win.
guys guys... are you ready. guys. are you ready. I joke but seriously great teacher.
good teacher. hard to pay attention when everyone's laptops are out tho
best and funniest teacher ever, re-submit assignments to get 100, wht more can u ask for
Funniest teacher (tied with McCarney). Stories, retests, extremely helpful - a bit of a hard marker, but whatever - science ain't my thing.
BEST CHEM TEACHER EVER! Most helpful person ive ever met. He goes fast so be prepared. Great football coach too. His overuse of the word okay...priceless. no doubt, greatest science teacher...ever.
Best Chem teacher ive ever had (along with Colin Boylke) very helpful, great person, just repeats himself and says okay a little too much. But his teaching and his lessons more than make up for that.
the thing to note is, the thing to note is that he always repeats himself....but he's a great guy lol
Amazing teacher. Everyone respects him for his great teaching, wait until you leave selwyn, he's an anomilee in the physics world. He's the best you'll get! enjoy him while hesther
cool teacher!! knows how to add humour to the course
excellent teacher and very good guy. marks are easy (easy course also) and he makes the class enjoyable.
probably the nicest teacher in the school. very down to earth and pretty good teacher. sometimes rushes through things tho.
hes a very nice guy can b unclear at times but is always willing to help u out during or out of class. sometimes he repeats wat hes saying. sometimes he repeats wat hes saying...lol
Great guy. Not quite as good as Colin Boyle but if you wanna discuss football hes the guy to talk to.
Great teacher. He's the reason I'm still doing physics. Hands on labs instead of lectures.
ey shh. great guy great teacher but sometimes unclear. skumi. good coach and always available for help
great teacher..great guy..love the resubs, retests and true stories
Probably one of my favourite selwyn teachers. He's easygoing, but he makes you work. Also a very nice guy.
Great ...shh.. guy.... shh... good teacher... shh... fair... shhh... enjoyable class atmosphere... shhh...
Nicest teacher ever, but he writes too small on the board.
