Mr. Austin is the hardest AP English teacher out of the three, but he knows what he is doing. He was my favorite teacher and my least favorite teacher. The workload was rough sometimes and his grading
Definitely the most interesting teacher at Xavier. Really interesting class, and probably my favorite teacher
British accent is perfect. He is very different from other Xavier teachers. I still feel like he tries to find meaning in things where there is none, which is pretty typical of english teachers.
worst teacher in the history of english ever. jealous of students.
I struggled a lot in his class in the beginning but when I showed an effort he really helped me to improve my score. He's an amazing teacher and impacts many students lives.
fantastic teacher. he is really underappreciated at xavier, he is so intelligent and witty. class is always interesting and he really helps you improve your writing style and way of analysing literature
one of the best teachers ever. he is the first one to actually critique and improve my writing, and he wrote me a great rec. expects a lot of you and you need to be on the ball with discussions in class. he is so amazing, i was surprised at how nice and approachable he is.
One of the best teachers I had in all my years at Xavier. Intelligent, made class discussions interesting, and had a sense of humor. If you put in the work there is a lot to be gained from his class.
his grading system is somewhat arbitrary. he ranks students very quickly and bases his grades on what he thinks students at different "ranks" deserve. a great knowledgeable teacher. writes good recs.
One of the teachers you have to struggle with at first, but once you can connect on the same level, he's simply amazing! Took me from nothing (2) 1st sem, to a 4 in AP Eng by April
i thought he was hard, but a great teacher even if it doesnt seem like it at times. i didn't appreciate his elitist attitude though
Mr. Austin always has amusing stories and genuinely knows his stuff and how to push you to learn more and try something new. Take his shakespeare class! SO FUN.
I honestly switched from AB to BC calculus JUST so that i could take Austin's english class, he's that great.
Awesome teacher, probably one of the best I've had at Xavier... he really knows what he's talking about, he's hilarious, and he takes interest in each student.
The toughest at XCP. One of the few amazingly great teachers there too. Wish I had him all 4 years. Listen and watch, you'll learn and smile.
He is known for being funny and challenging. He is a good teacher but it is no easy A.
