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 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.

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.
