« Dave was my boss for a couple of years when he was head of the English department I worked in. What I saw over that time was a person working hard to deliver the very best for every single student that came through our classrooms, and especially so for those he taught personally. He is a kind, approachable, supportive mentor with an extensive range of tools at hand to deliver the very best in English education. His subject knowledge is broad and deep and he passes this on to his students with an excitement and confidence that is then reflected back by them. He's the kind of teacher that sets people off on a lifelong love of the subject, the sort whose name is likely the first to pop into adult minds when they're asked who their favourite teacher was. I honestly couldn't recommend him any higher. »
