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.

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

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.

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.
