Hiiiii! Im his daughter and I know from personal experience and helping with homework and projects that my dad is a wonderful teacher! He explains things clearly, has a lot patience and takes his time to make sure you understand. He is very informative and keeps things interesting, adding jokes and tricks to remember information. Though his lectures can be long, they never get boring and you can learn a lot from them.

Matthew Taylor was my English teacher during my first and second semester, and I would definitely choose to have him again for a third time. He really goes out of his way to explain the course material, and he can make anything interesting and funny. He's not afraid to say odd and shockingly comical things, and I think it's one of the best aspects of his class. He's absolutely one of my favorite teachers.
You will need a copy of the books for class, but they're generally reasonably priced.

He is a fantastic teacher. Really nice guy, great to talk to, and goes out of his way to help his students. His lectures can be a bit rambling and disorganized but he knows his material very well and is passionate about the subject. (I've had him twice)

Really interesting class. Very little work. A couple of in-class assignment, two essays, and a short presentation. Can't go wrong with taking this class. He encourages class discussions and is always available to answer questions through MIO or office hours. Would strongly recommend, especially for students who have a heavy course load.

Had him for English and he's awesome. Cares a lot about the students, and he's massively relaxed. He'll give you huge extensions and won't take attendance. At the end of the day, the books are interesting and he's a funny guy, but the class can get a bit boring and dry. I'd say take him.
