Good old Coalsey. If you're willing to accept criticism in your work, then Coales is the man for it. Perhaps he's just good at proofing, or it's his harsh cynicism, but, to a good English, Coales is your best friend. Although his sense of humour is often divisive, if you're not afraid to give a bit back, within reason, he's pretty good. His hebrew hand-writing is a tad difficult at times. Can't necessarily control a class if a student is being bagged out. Often joins in.GreatGuyForEnglishWiseGuy

Horrible Teacher, Most sarcastic and useless teacher i have ever had. Expects all work in at high expectation, but has never given me back a grade even after constant face to face questioning, starting to think if he even looks at any work. Also he always finds a way to pick on students and tell them they are wrong even when they aren't. Or sometimes doesn't let certain people talk. Highly not recommended teacher.

his hieroglyphics an impossible to translate, and his cynicism is intolerable in the classroom, nor to mention the fact he never returns any essays that you send him in a reasonable amount of time or after 3 or 4 follow up emails, absolute dog..... #tripleh #WWE

Work takes too long to mark (often weeks or terms at a time), repeatedly insults students, seems like a smartass, always late to class, often changes tasks without completing them wasting your time as a result. Nothing positive to say really.

Mr Coales is no doubt one of the worst teachers I have had during my schooling career. He is extremely critical and judgemental toward every one of his students, to the point where he rudely interrupts them and insults what they have to say. As for the assessments and distribution of work: extremely poor. He will give out work to do, and then set another task while the current one is being worked on. Mr Coales has no structure and organisation which contributes to his poor standard of teaching.

Loves the gags, but his divise sense of humour is renowned for upsetting alot. Would be a great teacher if his hand writing was legible. Gets my vote for the jokes. Loves Queenscliffe sailing & beers.

A very entertaining and humourous teacher, Mr Coales is one of MGS' finest. Definitely knows his stuff. Loves lava lamps and 10 year old plastic bags.

Despite a little slow in returning work, Mr Coales is one of Melbourne Grammar's finest English/English literature teachers. Keep up the good work!
