Not bad - his assignments for applied english are somewhat fun and less hard than an essay - you learn quite a bit. Takes way too long to mark things for an english teacher and is not very straightforward. Organization of the essay seems to be the most important to him as well as the use of specific things learned in class. Not challenging and fair marker. Makes english class quite enjoyable but sometimes asks you to print many pages but don't use them - seems to enjoy being a teacher.

Overall, his I.C.E: Writing English class was pretty easy. It's nice that we get to read and discuss about different kinds of scholarly articles, instead of doing a literary analysis or poetry. He's a little weird, though.. I can quite explain why. He's more or less helpful, and he is generally not a hard marker for this intro to english class.

He knows that sometimes the work he gives is challenging so he really goes over it with you (sometimes even too much) to make sure you understand. A really nice guy that really wants his students to succeed!!

very bad teacher...doesnt help you..english is not my first or even my second language and he never helps me..i ask him questions and his answers are just not clear. he has this very bad attitude and dont expect to see him cancelling class.. he is the kind of teacher who is always on time and giving too much work useless so anyways if u take him then good luck...he is not funny and not friendly with everybody.
