Mr. Collins was the best teacher I ever had. You will never write the same way again. May be eccentric sometimes but hey, at least he's the only teacher who can truly understand subtext and teach it.

Expects much more from you than other teachers. Get ready to write A LOT. He's definitely hard, but after you have him you'll be at the top of whatever English class you take next.

Brilliant. The best teacher in the English department today. Though the class is hard and he grades quizzes very critically, he's always available for help and extremely clear. Doing well in his class will make you a better student overall.

This guy was probably the hardest teachers I've ever had. He's a good guy and will continue to help you if you show respect. I wish he wasn't on sabbatical. He makes his replacement look like a joke.

Makes you work, but as long as you do that, you will get a good grade, and more importantly become a better reader, writer, editor and student.

Ten years after graduting, I value his instruction even more than the already high regard I had for him as a student. He's better than all my college lit profs.
