He is an amazing teacher. Don't expect 90s, but everything you learn from him will make up for your possibly disappointing mark. He taught me to love grammar and his jokes are amazing.

Mr. Cook is a hard marker. But, if you really work on the areas he points out when you ask him to look over your work, there's a huge improvement in your writing skills. I learned A LOT from him, even if my marks weren't as good as I'd have liked. He makes his classes extremely interesting, though he does have definite favorites. That's not to say he doesn't give other students chances to speak, just that he may be more inclined towards his favorites. Overall, an amazing teacher.

He plays favourites and makes it evident when you're his favourite. He marks fairly, but gives extra attention to students he likes(he'll prob edit their essay more than yours). You probably already know that he marks hard and does not just give out 90s. You learn a lot in his class but it is a hell of a lot of work.

he's the hardest english teacher you'll probably get, but he's also the most funny one (if you like bad puns :P) and he really teaches you a lot of grammar and gets you prepared. also if you have questions you can ask and he'll usually answer.

Mr. Cook is probably one of the best teachers I've had in a long time. He's willing to take the time to make sure you understand his class. He's a hard marker though, and if you don't try, you won't pass. If you don't understand something, ask him!

I didn't know anything going into English this year, but he was a really helpful teacher and I learned so much.Going to English class, and visiting my friends in English was one of the highlights of school. ?? ???????????????????

Mr.Cook is a really good guy. He has very corny jokes. Very hard marker indeed or just very high standards. No matter how hard and put effort, I try on essays and assignments and getting all the help I can, my mark always ranges from 70-80.Overall great at teaching. You really have to pay attention and listen.
