He taught me European History, but more importantly Dr. B taught me how to write well. This was the most applicable thing I learned at Punahou. Definitely worth the stress and late nights!

Dr. Bassford is undoubtedly the primary resource for all matters concerning Asia. However, I could probably give him a good run on anything concerning Western History. Also, Dr. B seems to have a strange notion in his mind that rebeliousness is a phase that teenagers go through... p(_)(vx \/\/i11 i(v#312i7 73# \/\/012l1)...4(v1) 73# (_)n1V31253...=/

Dr Bassford taught me for just one year - thirteen years ago, and I still think very fondly of him! He was the best. Funny, kind, challenging...all good!

Very old school. Nice, but dry. Marks off points of your papers don't support his beliefs.

Dr. Mr. Bassford is the best. I thought he was really helpful, and his grading was very fair. Try hard in his class, and pay attention, and you will do fine.

seems nice at first but he grades based on how much he likes you, not your actual work. He picks on certain people for no reason. narrow-minded

Terrible teacher. grades according to how much he likes you. Pretends he's nice and helpful but he isn't. EXTREMELY boring, and doesn't teach. AWFUL.
