He says the same stories over and over, which is annoying if you had him from grade 10-12. If your looking for a class to chill and not do work choose him, but his 4u classes does not prepare you for uni as it is supposed to. Also he is lazy , he is only getting paid 6 figures to ask you to highlight the important points in your essays and group projects, instead of reading the whole thing.

Really good teacher! was lucky to have him in my last 2 years at vanier and couldnt be more happier in his class. Hes a very fair marker. Just read the books he assigned prior to class and youre good. he doesnt give homework other than the books you have to read. I do think he stresses you out more for uni or college more than prep you but from my experience with him, always ALWAYS ask for help before you hand in your essays!! overall youll have so much fun in his class :)

WAAAY to easy... many people might like him for the mark they get but he wont prepare you for uni english. You should switch to avecicas for a challenge i got a 90 with howley and 70 with avecias, which converts to the same in my mind

VERY easy teacher if you listen to what he says and regurgitate the information back in tests and assignments. He talks a lot though.

Excellent teacher, explains everything clearly and his course is not difficult if you follow his instructions to the word. Only flaw is his lack of assignments and your mark will drop significantly if you mess up on a test.

He's the best teacher in Jean Vanier whether it's English, Media Studies or Writers Craft! He's very understandable and gives good advice to those who need it. He's been my favourite teacher in Vanier and always will be. Who ever's in his class is very lucky, make the best of it and you'll get good marks!
