He gives at home essays that are relatively demanding but is extremely helpful when it comes to feedback. He's really knowledgable and definitely knows what he's talking about. I think my writing improved with his help.

I personally found him pompous and his teaching of Shakespeare was not what I expected. I'd hoped for something a bit deeper and detailed but also more transcendent. He's a bit high-schoolish. Disappointing.

At first it seems like he's going to be really relaxed, but he's actually pretty demanding, especially on essays. Knows what he's talking about though and gives very clear instructions--but problems if you don't follow them! If you're not into plays and poetry, you may not like his class. I really liked his classes (I took two!), but I also really like drama anyway.

Very simple guidelines but hard marker. Occasional pop quizzes to verify that you did the readings, but even if you did-the quizzes are geared to make you fail. He picks his favorites and is not very helpful outside of class. He does not allow anyone to makeup quizzes and can be forgetful with important information. All in all, not helpful AT ALL. Also, he does not take into consideration that we have other classes to attend (extremely demanding workload from him). I would avoid this teacher.

Not that bad of a teacher ... Strict marker, and if you hate poetry (like me) you will hate going to his class ... Poetry must be the worst thing ever and because he's so into it it's extremely bad .. He's a nice guy though but his class is boring

People are exaggerating how difficult his class is, you simply have to do precisely what he tells you. If you're struggling in English, I don't recommend him because he is stricter than most teachers but he's always willing to help. He made an 8am Shakespeare class bearable and managed to get me interested. I recommend his 102 class, especially to those who are good in English (boosts your R score because the average is rather low).

It was worth having him at 8AM unlike some other teachers. Knows his stuff, very interesting subject (shakespeare and I love theatre). IF YOU ARE HAVING DIFFICULTIES IN ENGLISH, AVOID (don't underestimate). Very clear on what he wants, very simple guidelines but hard marker. Occasional pop quizzes to verify if you did the readings and lots of analysis. Dynamic teacher

He is really good teacher, one of those who are well travelled. He knows life outside Canada, you cannot tell this about other teachers, some of them teach English literature and do not know anything about for example French literature. And I mean ANYTHINHG. Between this English Language "sophisticated" teachers Matt is a pearl. Take him he knows how to teach. If you won't learn anything at least you will have a good time.
