Advice- transfer out ASAP. We're almost done the year and he's been nothing but egotistical and mean to a lot of students the entire year. He makes inappropriate references constantly, and he often turns you asking a question into a joke or something and never really answers any questions with seriousness or clarity. Lots of assignments marked as 0 even though they're done. To be honest, not sure why he's allowed to be an educator. He turned my favourite subject into my least favourite :(

Terrible. Egotistical. Doesn't answer questions and makes fun of you for asking them. Gives you 50% on an assignment if you do even one thing not exactly as he tells you to. You don't learn anything useful in his class, all you do is write book reports and watch videos of rick mercer. He often wastes class doing useless stuff. You reads for twenty minutes and by the time he's don't telling you some random story about his life it's five minutes to the bell. Good luck getting a good mark with him.

If you ask him a question, he will almost never answer it directly. He loves to pick on students for god knows why which makes the class awkward because he asks the most weird questions like: HOW WAS YOUR LUNCH!?!? He told our class that if we keep writing this way, we won't even pass in grade 12 English, but never really taught us anything. He told us how to write the 'ideal' essay which will only gets us, at most, a four on his tests.

Tryssennar is a teacher who thinks being mean is funny, wastes a ridiculous time talking about life for much of the class and as a lame excuse for him wasting the class's time decides to give the class a in-class writing assignment due at the end of classes. Likes to give projects so that he can just sit back and not have to teach. Truly corrupt, making war on students and treats majority of students unfairly. Good Luck trying to do well in his class. Expect the worst to happen.

Hilarious. But not much beyond that. Easy marks but didn't really learn anything. Every time you tried to ask a question, he would either make fun of you or... say something completely unrelated.

egomaniacal; doesn't care about teaching; more interested in socializing and leading students astray: trust his advice and you'll never learn how to write.
