Information about Tom
Who better qualified to answer this than my pupils?! I asked them (ages 10-16) to describe me and my teaching, they responded with the following:
`My biology teacher is a very good teacher in my opinion. He is interactive and kind and also very knowledgeable. I always look forward to and enjoy his lessons.`
`He is an understanding and welcoming teacher. We always have a lot of fun whilst getting through a lot of work. He always helps if you are confused and will never hesitate to answer questions.`
`He is a supportive and caring teacher. I love how he puts lots of time, energy and thought into his lessons for the benefit of us. He shows obvious care for the neatness of our books so it is easier to look back in and revise on.`
In case you were wondering... I didnt even have to bribe them for these answers!
