TAKE HIM RIGHT NOW!! Even if you don't care about the class he's currently teaching. (I have no idea, I had Colonization and it was great) He literally goes over your essay and tells you where you need to improve it. At the end, your writing really improves! Smart, balanced and rational.

He is by far one of the best english teachers at marianopolis. As long as you try a bit youre fine. Youll never find a cooler teacher, be prepared to share a 24 with him at the end of the semester

Never take him if you care for your R-score! He has absolutely nothing to teach you, but expects a lot in your essays, picky and very tough marker.. Quite helpful when you ask him, but never tells you what he really wants...

Tough marker when it comes to essays. Better see him a few times for your essay. Has nothing to teach so he just makes you do group questions in class. Waste of a class and not fun. Avoid, there are plenty of better teachers.

Worst teacher, unorganised, and sometimes rude. Tries to connect to students and fails, sometimes feels as tho he's talking down to us. Not as hard as everyone says tho.
