I swear he's the best teacher I've ever had, he's so down to earth, so helpful and so positive. I've been struggling in college but he actually inspired me to become a better person, to care about the environment, and to stay positive no matter the situation. He's not judgmental or picky, he grades fairly and always smiles, like literally 24/7.

Very nice teacher. He is very helpful and organized. The class is not that boring. His structures for essay writing are very straightforward and clear. There are pop-quizzes however. Only problem is that there is a lot of reading to do for every class (the canadian novel). If you are ok to read 30-50 pages per class then I totally recommend him. He is a fair grader, not easy but not hard either. If you work you will get a good grade. 70 class average if you care... I enjoyed his class :)

This teacher is very down-to-earth and quite devoted to his students. He also seems to be very passionate about his course, which is awesome. The way he corrects essays is fair, I guess. Though, he's quite picky about arguments or not so open-minded, if compared to my last English teacher. His classes are a hit and miss : some are fun and yet, some are quite boring. I also wish we had more group work, as, most of the time, it's a the-teacher-speaks kind of course. Overall, his course was alright

one of the best teachers I've ever had! he is so nice and really cares about his students! the workload may be a little heavy but at this level of education you better get used to it. He is also very lenient and allows a lot of group work. definitely recommend him!!

Not a bad teacher, but not the best either. He is not judemental, and he is an average marker, a bit demanding. However he will offer you to see him in his office to help you with whatever you need, and he is a very good-hearted person which is always nice. I would recommend him!

really funny, and sweet. He doesn't like when you use your phone in class and at the beginning of the semester he made us write down our favourite song. so now if we get caught using our phone he will make us sing our favourite song which i find funny and different.

Super sweet teacher! The only thing is that he is too nice to his students..! This guy behind me was always talking but he only picked on him a few times by asking him questions about the book...He never told him to shut up or change seat, unfortunately. Just SHOW UP to class, sometimes the reading is demanding when you have 7 classes but just plan yourself ahead. The last book was easy to finish the readings before class because it was a very good book (Book of negroes)! Pick him, super nice!

He will never give you a definite answer to your questions. Lets the class go off topic a lot and it gets useless. He's wants to help but he lacks clarity in most things.

he's a fair teacher & is willing to help u during office hours or thru emails. lots of reading if u take him for english class, but needs to spend a little more time on grammer. the homework load isn't a lot, u just need to read (approx. 50pg for next class) and prepare urself ahead of time

He's a great teacher. He makes English fun. However, he's a hard marker and you have to work for your grade. If you do that, you'll be well off.

If he likes your style of writing, you're going to have very good grades. If he doesn't, you are going to have a hard time. You should go see him before you hand in your essays; he'll always take the time to give you suggestions and if necessary, extra explanations. That being said, this guy has a natural charm that makes you like him. His classes are always interesting and the workload is alright. If you fail, you can rewrite the essay for a passing grade.
