Difficult teacher, spends a lot of time disciplining, very knowledgeable.
Easily the class I am most scared by, some of his learning tactics a bit quirky, hard to ask questions difficult to receive help but a very smart man.
Awesome teacher, he can be difficult and scary to students and targets those who need help. However it can be a little intense and intimidating. Asking questions can be difficult if you don't use perfect english, grammar and use "umm" or "errr" during a sentence, essentially he can't stand inarticulate speakers. He's got a brilliant mind, but a hard mind to crack. Once you understand him then you're set for life, but if you don't.....you're in for a hard year my friend.
Yes, class time might be a huge rush, but at the end of the day he is a bloody knowledgeable, thinker. Straight up
Dr Collins is a great teacher. He is far more knowledgeable than any other teacher at scotch. Especially the other English teachers.
Absolute Dog. Ratf@cked me for end of year exam and now I will fail Vce. 'Die all, Die merrily'
Some of you sooks need to harden up. High school is about forming character, not pandering to your insecurities. Schools like Scotch need more teachers like Dr Collins. Sure, he's a c*nt, but he's a very smart c*nt whose lessons would benefit his students strongly if they paid attention.
Terrible teacher. Narcissistic and self obsessed. Mean to foreign students, especially those who have trouble speaking the language, mocks them and makes them feel terrible. Condescending and arrogant he makes you feel small and dumb, terrible learning environment. Shouldn't be teaching at all. Stupid approach to teaching, learn nothing, treats you as if you are a 4 year old incapable of the simplest tasks. Temperemental and angry extremely intollerant of others and makes harsh remarks.
cont..A student that is 13 years old are often vulnerable and require the support of teachers to enable them to become self confident in the future. However, what Dr Collins has done is quash all the self confidence in me and made me look like a fool in front of the class. After my university studies, I have on many occasions thought of bringing a case to scotch or even a governing body to report this behaviour. This is simply a summary of what he did..i hope he can stepback and tink bout this
Dr Collins is a teacher I would never forget. However for the following reasons. He exhibits unique attributes and ostensiby bullies young students who already show a lack of self confidence. I remember on the first day in english, he told (actually pointed me to stand up and sit at the front for the whole year. Although it may have been due to his concerns regarding our english difficulty, pysychologically it made me feel segregated from the rest of the class. (cont....)
Dr Collins is like such a narcissistic person with poor communication skills and bad mouth hygiene
eyyy collins, mate ripper of a bloke C: hes toppers fellas
Dr Collins is not in the right field of teaching, he should be teaching university students, not senior school students.
Truth of the fact is that DJ Collins is a skilled LECTURER not a school teacher. I am to scared to ask questions in class because of the reality that he is going to go ballistic when I murmur um at the start of relevant question. So in summary um like you are wrong sir I speak like street language.
Best English teacher at Scotch. He exposes the idiocy of the bogan students and instills much-needed discipline in them. The world needs more teachers like Dr Collins who maintain standards, ruthlessly correct illiteracy and ignorance, and effectively instill discipline through an iron fist combined with public humiliation.
Absolutely hilarious. Not many teachers who will unleash a torrent of abuse these days - something I hope is never lost. Great footy coach as well.
I find it hard to believe that a man with such a clearly brilliant knowledge feels the need for self gratification by making cheap jokes at people less than half his age, teachers having a sense of humour is fine, but Dr Collins tends to take it that step to far and often makes enemy’s of students who have done little more than having a shirt tail untucked on the first day.
