Mr. Luscombe is a very passionate about his work. He will do anything to help his students. My daughter loves him and the way he teaches. I don't remember a single day this semester where she hasn't come home late because she was getting extra help from him. I've never met him before but he seems like a wonderful person. He speaks so highly of his students.

Mr. Luscombe was, and clearly still is, an incredible teacher. Passionate, intelligent, motivating and inspiring. He is one of few teachers I remember clearly and truly value.

Where to begin? Mr. Luscombe is not only brilliant, but he's a kind and incredibly compassionate person who really cares for his students. On the basis of writers' craft, he's creative and inspires people to be inventive in their ideas, which is all one looks for in a creative writing course. His projects are fun, and really work the mind- you're never bored! While he's somewhat of a hard marker, you know it's because he's teaching you things. I've already learned so much and its been two months

AMAZING teacher. He hypes it up everyday, very funny and promotes everyone's individuality. Ask him for advice often and you will be fine. He is very talented in his own writing and is able to conjure up something brilliant in about five minutes, right on the board. This is the class I feel smartest in this semester!!

Between him and Main(e?), its hard to pick which is the best teacher at Lucas. Caring, helpful, willing to listen, an all around great teacher and man.

I personally wrote an email to the tvdsb to let them know that he has the most strict and uptight marking schemes of any teacher. You can only get a 90 if you (and I quote) "come up with something so mind-blowing, I could submit it as a psychological accomplishment." How do you compete with that? It's impossible. He is the hardest marker of all teachers. If you have the chance to take eng4u with anderson or online, do it. You won't regret it. I promise.

He tends to give bad marks to those who work their butts off. He needs to lower those standards.

I'm not 100% sure he is truly fair with all his students. He tends to have favourites and also he has the overall power to decide which mark you will receive based on his opinion.

I really loved Mr. Luscomb's clss. He demands a lot but he knows how to have a good time. As a former actor, he makes learning about Shakespeare fun. Essays are brutal but I'm sure its well worth it!

Respect this man. One of few teachers I remember. Prepares you for university, despite the hard marks at times. Get him to lay it out straight for you and you will do well.
