I had him for creative writing B last fall. Super laid-back class, basically if you hand in work, you'll pass, no big challenge there. My class was a 3 hour slot, but he let us leave an hour or so early about half the time. He was sort of okay with phones, if you didn't make it too obvious you had it. The only time he didn't want to see any phones out was when he was giving important info and wanted to make sure everyone got it. Really interesting guy.

Geoffrey is an amazing teacher! His Love in Shakespeare class is a must take since Geoffrey does an amazing job in interpreting the plays. He is a super easy marker and a very down to earth teacher. He's always available for help and provides great explanations. The class may be boring sometimes but it's the same for every other english class. There is an oral, but all it consists of is reciting one of Shakespeare's sonnets and analyzing it a bit. Not tough at all. easy to achieve 90+.

I took one of his Shakespeare classes and it was so so boring but I did learn a lot about how to read and interpret Shakespeare's writing. He's a really cool teacher, doesn't usually take attendance and he's a pretty easy marker. As long as you do the work he tells you to do you'll probably do fine. If you're looking for an easy English class, I'd take him!

By far the BEST english teacher i've ever had. The most insightful, interesting, caring teacher. I would recommend him to anybody! You read one play, one novel and do some poetry, have 3 essays and no tests. As long as you do the work, you are guaranteed to do well.

Take him! By far the best English teacher. He is passionate about his subject and his class is interesting. He teaches you how to recognize the important concepts in a reading and recognize relevant details. His lectures help structure your essays which he grades easily. You can sleep in his class and he doesn't mind but participating from time to time really helps your grade. Besides, his class is interesting. Also, the class is almost always ended 30 or more minutes early.

Geoffrey Cook is great at explaining important concepts and ideas in books. He repeats the main points in a text clearly as any English teacher should do, which is helpful for essays. His essays are not too hard and achieving a grade for them in the 90s is possible if you put in an actual decent amount of effort. The lectures are helpful and the class is often let out 30 minutes earlier.

He's a great guy, if you pay attention in class somewhat you will end up with a good mark, barely paid attention most of the semester in his classes but his essays are worth a lot and are very easy if you listen to the key points he talks about. Long class but he is very helpful if you ask. Highly recommend.

I would recommend Geoff. He is a really nice guy but he speaks a little monotone sometimes, he tries to be interesting though. He tried to make some jokes in class which I found funny but the rest of the class was so dead nobody really acknowledged it. I found the instructions for some of the essays confusing but he usually gets you to submit an outline and he corrects it and tells you what he wants to see. Also helpful if you go see him. When I had him he let us out early every time.

SUCH and amazing guy! Literally never in a bad mood and he's always so calm and respectful and super funny. He does talk super low so i suggest you sit in the front so you can hear him. If you have any questions for him he'll always be there to answer them. Never gives any homework unless you have to do some reading but thats once in a while. His classes do get boring somethings cause its just him talking about poems and books but thats honestly the only negative! I highly recommend him!
