Very experienced and helpful.
He is very smart, but tends to allot more of his time to helping students that are endeavoring to succeed. He does however hold grudges, but this is often as a result of badmouthing, or embarra$$ing [doesn't like foul language inside normal words...] someone else (or him) in cla$$.
Had him for 6 weeks before I changed into a lower set maths because I wasn't learning much. Stood in front of the board that he was solving equations on blocking his workings. Often asked other students to explain things he couldn't be bothered with.
had him thru the second half of yr 9 after mr oneill n i actually learned more on the first day of his class than all of oneill on wheel's class
Great maths teacher, very approachable and reasonably relaxed.
Mr Bourke's probably one of the friendliest teachers. I had him as a teacher a few years ago, and from what I remember he was pretty good.
