MUST TAKE HIM!!!!!
I took him last semester for "Poetry from Planet Earth" and he was an extremely helpful person! No quizzes and only two easy essays for the entire semester! He's an easy grader teacher and cares about the students. He does his best to prepare you for the essays. (Ended up with A+)

Having class with him was not very easy, but he is an extremely likable person, incredibly knowledgeable, and, he helped me after I was no longer his student with my integrating activity paper, writing a letter of intent, and he even wrote me a recommendation letter. I still ask him for help now that I'm in university.

(Poetry from planet earth) Great guy, keeps you awake in the morning, if you attend class and do exactly what he wants on the essays you can do extremely well. Let's you see him before handing stuff in to get it reviewed and therefore a better mark.

Lord do I love this man! Took him for literary criticism (one of the hardest/most awful classes ever) and, I won't lie, I had a few issues. But, after I got over the class, I realized how great he is He is helpful, knowledgeable and passionate about his field (Don't mess with his Inferno!). He is also hilariously crazy and he makes class worth it! Great teacher!

AVOID AT ALL COSTS! Had him for poetry and it was the worst teach ever. Always telling students quote "i don't have an answ book" therefore many ways to interpret.. WRONG! if his essay is not written basically in his own words you get a failing mark. In his poetry class room there is no room for personal expression and individual thoughts not discussed in class & are in retrospect not allowed.

He lets you rewrite if you got a bad grade and he is always approachable and helpful. He made having an 8 o'clock class totally worth it and he's truly hilarious!

Attending his class was a blast. The way he taught poetry was brilliant and amusing. Bryan was pretty open to other's opinions if they made sense.
He is very lenient on late essays, but a somewhat hard marker. My first two essays were indeed trash, but my last one was superb. We even reviewed it together.Yet it only ranged in the 70s. Anyone who received less than 60 were able to resubmit, which is the only reason I got over 70. A friend of mine never passed even after resubmitting many times

Bryan is a very knowledgeable man. He knows his stuff and wants to educate his teachers. He doesn't take marks off for not attending class. I skipped a few and he still accepted my assignments. He's generally a "fair" marker I would say. Sometimes the content is boring, but he enjoys what he teaches and can sometimes make akward jokes that you can't help but laugh at!

Favourite teacher at Dawson! I've had two classes with him, and even though they were at 8am, everyone would show up and stay awake. He's hilarious, weird, dynamic and extremely smart. He was born to teach English and it's refreshing when having many other dull English teachers. He can be a harsh marker, but you can always rewrite an essay or ask him for help. I suggest Sentes to everyone and anyone!
