I had him for grade 11 English and he definitely has his favourites! I can say that he is really interesting to talk to and is not afraid to call people out. My only advice is get on his good side and make an effort to talk to him and stuff. He'll prepare you for the exam really well just don't slack off!!!
Well, on a good note, Mr. Cluff is really knowledgeable and full of enthusiasm! His experiences throughout life (which he often talks about in class) are interesting, however his obvious "pro-white supremacist" attitude often leaves the students in his class feeling offended and uncomfortable. He loves to berate and belittle his students (ex. he ripped a student's essay in two in front of the entire class, and lives to savagely shout into people's faces). He's all about that favoritism.
Probably the most rude and ignorant man I have ever met and lacks all common sense whatsoever. He constantly makes jokes putting students down in class in front of others and on the teaching aspect he fails to explain or give a proper layout of assignments and due dates. Also highly biased and loves showing favouritism. He probably needs to get laid, anyways overall I would say he's not a great human being or teacher. He lacks moral compassion and understanding as well as explanation skills.
Best teacher ever
Best teacher EVER
What can I say.. he's very knowledgeable, but he cannot teach properly.. I'm getting used to him but I think I should just transfer out right away. I do not think he will get me the marks I need for university.
He is not capable of offering extra help to your correct your mistakes and marks biased! I was an ESL student who had this man for the last year; I am sorry that I did not notice the character of this man sooner. When I received a bad mark, all the red marks were on the format even when I followed MLA.I ended up dropping his class not only because of the bad marks, but also because he would berate and humiliate me in front of the class just enough to hurt me, but not to get him fired.
Honestly, this teacher is full of knowledge and stories. However, Cluff is so unclear on what the class should include in their essays/tests and the due dates for them, which ultimately effects what really matters - THE MARKS.
He's a great teacher; huge personality, clearly loves what he does. The only downfall to his class is the inconsistency in marking. Put in 0 effort on an essay... high 90s! Spend forever working on it... low to mid 70s. I honestly cannot understand where he pulls his marks from. NEEDS to stop belittling certain students, it makes everyone uncomfortable. Doesn't really explain ISU/give accurate timeline. Other than that, flawless teacher.
I have a love-hate relationship with this guy. The way he loves his job is inspiring, he teaches you life lessons that any other teacher wouldn't, he's a good guy, good intentions, but it's really difficult passing that class. He's a hard marker, he doesn't really give second chances. His class is kind of boring sometimes, especially when he's reading books, we can read, sir.
He gives random assiments and no proper instructions. He also can't stay on topic and the topics you will mostly hear about are the cross country team and people who are going on the march break trip! He leaves the classroom and does not return for half of class!
He's a really hard marker. If he doesn't like what you've done, he won't easy up on telling you. He'll tell you exactly what he didn't like about it. He has a good heart though but it takes a while fo
Mr. Cluff was and probably still is the most amazing english teacher at the Abbey. I can honestly say that although many didn't pass they thouroghly enjoyed his class. He taught us so much!
Best english teacher ever! Really gets you thinking. Love you sir!
Love you sir! awesome teacher but really hard marker! Class is so much fun and for some reason i don't know where we had time to learn everything we did. Seriously we spent so much time laughing!:)

great teacher. he actually taught me a lot about french. what other teacher sings the doors and tell you ghost stories about dead poets?
Let's see: makes fun of students (when they're not in the class), ridicules other teachers, downgrades those he doesn't like. Not my kind of teacher or "humour"
EXCELLENT TEACHER. hard assignments makes us use our brains. mr. cluff, you're hard, but you're good! Please don't retire!!!!
i learned so much in this class. cluff is so funny. i'll never forget him making fun of parwicki. amazing teacher. probably one of the best i've ever had.

"you guys are doing the grammar! no other classes are...so who is going to get better on the exam? " shows off so much my god!
sir, i think you're one of the most educated teachers in this school. even though we're learning a lot more stuff, we benefit more than others.
Cluffy! I hope I get him next year for english. He seems so cool.
Mr. Cluff was one of the best teachers I had. He helped me realize what I wanted to do with my life! Anyone who has him as a teacher is blessed.
i hope i get this guy for eng next year. seems cool.
Mr. Cluff you are so cool! I learn so much in English, and I am glad you are a tough marker, because I can find my way to improve! You are great, sir!!! :D
Hey sir! ur cool! Keep up the good work! I learn more basic knowledge in ur class that will stay w/ me 4ever. Other classes, i forget the knowledge in a day!
a really nice guy, classes are animated, but you do go off on a tangent now and again, some clearer instructions and easier marking for university hopefuls!!!
You mark SO hard!! I've had hard teachers in the past and I worked my way to above 80...but with you it dropped SO much!!
sir there is no way that any one on here can have anything bad to say about you, great fun in classes and you are both a great teacher, and person,
He's a really nice guy. Best english teacher I have ever had !!
ur great n u seem to like what you do, i respect your bluntness n that u seem very passoinate about what u do. but u really look like u need sum sleep...
He is one of the worst teahcers I ever had. He ridicules students in front of their peers. Brings teachers a bad name
I will always appreciate your intelligence and positive demeanor. You had a great influence on me and for that I am grateful. Keep on smiling sir :)
Mr.Cluff, you're one of the best teachers I ever had and I'm sorry for dissappointing you this year for not joining crosscountry
One of those teachers who seems to enjoy coming to class. Makes class interesting but sometimes talks too much.
can be biased. very animated. like he's walking on a cloud most of the time.
Well, I had him a few times as a teacher ... ah, memories. Loved his class, but you have to take what he says with a grain of salt.*Remember your appositives!*
Great man but we never learn anything in class! Is he preparing us for the future AT all by telling us stories all the time?Your marking scheme needs adjusting
Makes you work for your marks but I've learned a lot. Happy teacher. Keep smiling sir!
Hands back tests & assignments in a short time. You'll learn a lot (he knows sooo much stuff) and be happy to have been in his class. Great teacher!
Knows a lot about a lot! Not the easiest marker, but you'll actually learn a lot and improve. Isn't that what teaching is about? Nice man.
Very funny. He gets so into teaching, its funny watching him sometimes. lol. very good teacher though.
I can't wait to see you...your sooo funny!!! or so i've heard from my friends! great teacher and person!!!!
