If you decide to do Classical Greek with him in year 9, be warned, you will be absolutely bombarded with large tests more than once a week. Of these test, don't expect to hear about the mark or receive the test back unless you fail where he'll email your parents, tutor, and head of your house.
If you have an urgent question you need to ask him you're better off going to see him in person than sending him an email for you are very unlikely to get a reply from him.
Bad teacher, doesn't reply to emails and isn't clear
he is good with dedicated and smart students, but when he is faced with worse students who tend to fall behind, he really struggles to get them back on track.
Mr Murphy is a relatively good bloke, but the tends to favour certain students especially the redheads. But all in all, he is a very good teacher.
Makes u work hard. since he took over he hasnt let us watch any movies but if u like latin or greek then hes good
As usual, Mr Murphy has continued to maintain a very high level of achievement across all areas in Latin. He evidently works diligently and prepares very well for tests. Nevertheless he can be easily distracted, invariably by some very interesting and erudite matter, but ultimately one that is not immediately relevant to the focus at hand- Mr Murphy would do well to check this propensity. I look forward to his continued progress in Latin in the future.
awesome latin teacher...also a great bloke to talk to and be around
Murph! What can be said about him, has probably already been said. I feel inspired by the man himself in each and ever Greek class, and I would even go so far as to call him on of my closest friends.
Never had him as a teacher, but seems to be one of the good ones. Maybe he will read this :-|
I couldnt think of a worse person on this planet he is a joke and probably shouldnt be alive.
Great Teacher. He know his subjects ridiculously well and is very helpful and patient with his student and is also able to have a joke too but know when work must be done.
he makes life hell for annoying students, i think he is great for doing that.
Andrew Murphy is a knowledgeable teacher who performs well. He does, however, teach some fairly difficult students and is consequently unfairly maligned when he enforces basic educational standards.
Andrew Murphy, aka Murphdog is a great teacher, yet he has missed class occasionally, resulting in unsupervised students abusing the class fan. He also allegedly squealed when "boobied" by a student.
