To be honest, although sometimes he may disagree with you, Mr. Wilson is only trying to help you with materials that you are not clear with. Super chill and fun to be around with.
It's best to avoid Wilson. He's very subjective in his marking and his lessons contradict published resources. I've asked him questions about literature only to be more confused. He doesn't seem to know much about literature. If anything, what he teaches and knows is very superficial.
He's a racist and he has handouts that he made himself and don't make sense. In his class, I'd prefer published materials.
Wilson is so far the worst English teacher I've ever had. His knowledge of grammar is, at best, weak. When he talks, there is very little actual content. He will say that Oxford is British and doesn't apply to Canadian English. Seriously? Oxford has a head office in New York and creates publications for Americans and Canadians. Sigh.
Now that I'm majoring in English at Stanford, I give Wilson no credit for my success but instead offer my sympathy for the little meaning he offers to the art of literature. He's a PE teacher in St. George's, and a foray into grammar and syntax and eloquence is certainly beyond his depths. How he can continue to disappoint bright minds confuses me not only because HE CAN, but because such a SCHOOL WOULD allow it. He has a reputation for being racist. Wilson is the guy that Wilson knows sucks.
Just transfer if you get him... You don't learn much, and gives bad grades
i learned more off sparknotes and grammarbook.com in one night than with him the entire year
Gives u pointless homework and is never clear about anything hard marker aswell I hope I don't get him next year
Worst teacher i have ever had. he should be fired!!!!
well, i would run out of paper before i could quite finish giving just his negatives...struts, has absolutely no reason for deducting marks and isnt a nice guy either
Teaches well, but he gives a lot of homework, marks unpredictably, and drives everyone insane with his strut.
His social class is very hard. He gives way too much homework.
SPARKNOTES.... gives tests on stuff he don't teach... gives ppl 30% when they should have gotten 70%!!!! He h8s ppl and takes it out on them in this way
wish he did the sumo thing with us, funny walk, wierd smile and good at hacky sack kid at heard but too old to do anything
teaches w/ documents printed from net (seems to believe no one has realized); he caught 1/4 class for plagiarizing 1-2 sentences from net in a10x-sentence essay
not much of an english teacher, and he isnt that great of a rugby coach. says incredibally mean things to ppl and pretends not to know or actually doesnt
Well... Sometimes I get the feeling he doesnt really know what he is talking abo
