I recently spoke to a retired university lecturer who said " if you don't understand a topic or lecture it means you have a poor teacher
I think he is correct because some teachers seem to be coherent and focused whilst some seem wishy washy and not clear.
Please give me your thoughts

I think it is only one factor. Also depends how bright you are and how much effort you put in. You shouldnt expect you be spoon fed at uni and should be used to teaching yourself as well. Other students do. That doesnt excuse poor teaching, but you have to take some responsibility for your own education.

It's part of the story, but not the entirety of it.

In my opinion it only matters to a certain extent. From personal experience, I know that you can have a rubbish teacher, but if you have persistence and grit then you will still see the same results. Sure, it is unfair on the students and gives an unbalanced syntax between those who have a good teacher and those who do not, but it really separates those who want to succeed from those who are not as bothered.
With that being said though, from personal experience I have also attained a thirst of learning for a subject through the teacher. I think you can definitely thrive off a teacher’s energy. Some people are seriously cut out for teaching and that is evident, as some are not.

I think having a good teacher helps, but it is not imperative, especially considering now we can learn from typing words into our phones, the aid of technology and online tutors. In my opinion, it was more important to have a good teacher when alternative resources were not available, so in the past, and even today in less fortunate countries.

I think a teacher may know his subject but lack the skills in explaining the mechanics if you get my drift.

I was honestly a model student before my life went to **** at secondary school and 6th form and i became a troubled student. I was always told I'm one of their brightest pupils but underperformed because i didn't revise and was truant. what helped me was caring teachers, who spent time with me after class or who let me make up work within a reasonable time frame. who gave me past papers. and who kept classrooms attentive so we wouldnt waste time.

As far as uni, it's truly sink or swim, but in 6th form and college and younger years, it is largely the teacher's responsibility.
