I am now 27 years old. Dr. Hughes was my grade 9 social studies teacher. While I was at saints in grade 9 I never thought he was my best teacher. However, if any student is reading this and has him as a professor, the best knowledge he gives is when he isn't writing on the board. Ask him about the middle east and get him on a tangent. Then you can put your pens down and just listen and learn from one of the great brains existing in a high school. - Saints Grad 07 - Law Grad 2015
He's my advisor and he is just awesome.
He shouldn't even be teaching high school kids, as Sir Hughes is equivalent to professors at the finest institutions in the world. His pedagogy is unmatched by any other high school teacher. If you have him as a teacher, savour every single second.
My advisor. Coolest guy in the world.
Have him for IRC 10 this year. Hilarious to say the least. Really intellectual and just a great guy to talk too!
To say Dr. Hughes is the best teacher at St. George's in an extreme understatement. I cannot go through a class without laughing and enjoying every minute. He is by far the smartest man I have ever met and he makes you feel way smarter when talking with him. I cannot express through words how UNBELIEVABLE he is...Take one of his classes if you are interested in history and are hoping to have a great time learning about it
I rarely go on this site-- I find most of the reviews uninspired. However, I think I owe it to potential students to write this review. I've known the Doctor for what seems like a lifetime now; I took three courses with him at the senior school. The books he has authored are a treasure trove of insight. His oratorical skills are legendary. His stories (ask for them) captivate. He furthered my love for history and I am sure he will do wonders for you too.
Dr. Hughes is probably the best social, and even best teacher i've encountered so far in my school career. He is a very funny and intelligent man.
One of the awesomest teachers I've ever encountered. If you are of European, African, Middle Eastern or Jewish descent, you are guaranteed a very high mark. If not, then you'll still probably get around 90%. Quizzes are ridiculously hard; expect around a 40%, but somehow it seems he throws these assessments away and "fictionalizes" your mark favorably. Very lenient on late marks. Can hand in something about 3 weeks late. Very knowledgeable and I highly recommend taking one of his classes.
Sir Hughes is the best teacher I've had in the Senior School. He exudes knowledge and humour, and is quite simply, wonderful to be around. He knows so much, and has the most excellent quotes and stories.
this man is the best person. (crap, i need one hundred characters.) seriously. in his presence one feels more intelligent. THE BEST PERSON.
entertained and taught us at the same time. the doc is great!
He is the best teacher I've ever had. When you talk to him, you feel smart. His signature quotes are hilarious. Just a great person to be around and his method of teaching is phenomenal.
AMAZING teacher...the best, the most educated, the funniest...the quality of teaching at saints is great, but he raises an unreachable bar.
Great teacher. Makes SS most interesting course in the school. Tests a bit iffy but still an excellent teacher.
He shouldnt be teaching in Saints. He is too good. He is nice and fun and knows the information really well
never had class with him but those socials periods where we combine all the classes for discussions just that u can see how much of an awezom teacher he is
greaaaattt awesome best teacher, but very very random marker
oh heres a word I dont ever get to use................ FREAKIN SUPERCALLAFRAGALISTICEXPIALADOSHIS teacher
awesome teacher....he WILL overwhelm you with his unparelleled rhetoric
makes socials fun and interesting. he really likes the stuff he teaches and that helps alot. good guy
Best Socials teacher ever!!! (except for the fact that he's almost guaranteed to lose any assignment or test you hand in to him).
Dr. Hughes is a really nice guy but.... He doesn't really teach us the material before he test us and he makes us cram everything by ourselves before the exams
Even when I slept RIGHT IN FRONT of him every class, he still let me by with 90s. Knows his history inside out.
this guy's the man. HARRY VON FLUFFY ALL THE WAY!!! had him in gr. 8, now in gr. 11 again. he still remembers me. ha. fun times.
best teacher ever! estimates ur mark! but well! complain if u get low and he'll change it and give u like 90's lol...! Hilarious 2! awesome impressions of ppl!
Excellent Socials teacher! Never a dull moment with Hughes!
what a funny guy, although disorganised... he never marked my 2000wrd essay
