Nope. Vaguely taught and then made you try and master the assignment. He's very particular in who he likes and jokes around with. Felt really unliked throughout his whole class.
Kind of a hard marker, but he's a nice guy. Class average was a low 80.
I loved the two classes I had with him in high school. He's a smart guy and his classes are often funny enough to hold your attention throughout. Your writing will definitely improve in his class because he genuinely cares about his students. He can be a tough marker but he's always willing to discuss your work with you and give advice on how you can improve for next time.
he really helps you out in trying to get your assignments in on time. if you have questions regarding a past assignment or how to write an essay, he won't hesitate to help you out at lunch or after school. SUPER helpful in general and really funny!(:
Great teacher, I always look forward to his class. His assignments are reasonable and well spaced.
Really good teacher. very helpful and cool
He's a really nice person, and a great teacher. He may mark hard, but it just pushes you to try harder. He also has really nice eyes..
Very focused, smart teacher. Not always extremely useful with feedback he gives you, but he does his job pretty well - if you're focused and actively use your brain 100% to understand what he is sayi
He's the coolest teacher HANDS DOWN I've ever known. Not only fair, helpful, and patient, but compassionate, funny, and totally approachable. All around great guy. I wish he was my dad. T_T
Mr. Risk let a friend and I do our Shakespeare play on helium one year. Man, that guy was the coolest ever!
Really helpful and great. I think English Departement at Bell High School is run by amazing teachers. Plus Mr. Risk .. your a hottY!!!
My favorite teacher in the history of my education. He helped me improve my writing, and inspired me to keep writing. Creative, knowledgeable, funny, and caring.
definitely the bestest english teacher ever. arrg hrothgar!
Ha, Mr. Risk was awesome! A little too much grammar work, and some pretty hard marking, but he was lots of fun. He'll let you talk a little bit, but if you do it too much, it gets on his nerves.
Gotta love Hrothgar. Tough marker, but you learn a LOT. Especially about grammer. :D
Some days I like going to class just because it can be sooo funny. Not an easy marker, and you have to keep up with due dates. Good feedback on assignments, though.
I LOVE MR. RISK! HE'S MY HERO! Grade 10 and 11 English classes were the highlights of my days! Though he marks pretty hard... but because he's so amazing, you actually wanna work!
MR RISK IS THE BESTEST ENGLISH TEACHER EVER!!!!! HE TEACHES US GRAMMAR SO WELL!!
such an incredible teacher; made me look forward to class and work hard every day. most of all, a really great person
Tough but fair marker, hysterical grammar, and stimulating discussion.
THE best english teacher i've ever had! hes hilarious but an awesome teacher at the same time. Never a dull moment in gr 11 english.
great teacher, funny, fair and very helpful. probably the best english teacher i had
Mr. Risk is my hero! He's the best english teacher I've ever had. He's soo funny but still manages to stay on topic. I'm happy to come to his class
Mr. Risk is so incredibly funny...or should I say spazzy. One thing is stop "having over-large pommegrantes runninng over houses", in your grammar sentences
Really fair teacher.... you should ask him about modelling.... he was quite the levis model back in the day :P
Risk is a good, understanding teacher, and has really good taste in music.
