The best teacher at Dara and the best one that I've had the pleasure to be taught by. He knows his stuff, is so enthusiastic about history that it's contagious and he made me love the subject. He is approachable, has interesting stories and is generally a delight. I would love to go back and see him but it is my understanding he has retired!
The teacher who actually made me enjoy learning. The way he uses personal anecdotes and admits when there is something he doesn't know means you get to know him in a personal sense as well. The only teacher I have ever had that I would have liked to keep in contact with after graduating. Any student of his is lucky to have him. Can't praise him enough. Wish i could go back to Dara just to see him teach again. It was a real pleasure and privilege to be taught by him.
An excellent and memorable teacher - I remember both him and what he taught us - some great lessons
Udoubtedly the best teacher I've ever had. Dara had many brilliant teachers, but Mr Ellis was a stand out. His passion for the study matter, and his understanding for the students and their learning needs made him outstanding. Steve Ellis made me, and so many others, want to learn. The world is a better place because of Mr Ellis.
Mr Ellis is one of those teachers whose class you always look forward to. His classes are always unique and fun and he is very passionate about history. Shows plenty of videos, all of which are very informative and not some cheap hollywood film. His range of knowledge is actually quite fascinating, as are all of the stories he has to tell.
Incredible teacher. My Hat goes off to him. Always helpful, always clear, just, organized, he has some fascinating stories too. Just wonderful!
Also taught some English when I was there. He is a great teacher and an even better one when the student puts in some work. Could make himself more approachable for struggling students.
Knows his subject inside out. He is a very fair and just teacher, and can keep control of a class. Is very passionate about history.
very good teacher, knows what he talks about and is helpful.
