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.

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

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!
