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.
The really only good thing i can say is that he wont give up on you. I probably would have gotten used to him but he left, temporarily that is. I hope ill get him again.
I think he is a nice guy... but most people think he is too hard!
at the begining of my freshman year he was extremely hard and i hated him. but now i am used to his toughness and what he expects. awesome teacher, allows u too make up just about everything. wish he wasnt on sabatical.
A pillar of the English department. Teaches a very interesting and serious class and cares about individual students. Well worth it for BC High.
I hated him in Freshman year. Now, I respect this man. He is the face of boston college high school.
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.
collins...The man knows his literature and only Einstein is smarter than him. I used to hate him back In my freshman year. Now I think he is the best teacher.
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.
Vastly changed my writing for the better. You're the best Mr. Collins
one of the best teachers i've ever had, he is very smartand actually makes you think, getsthe most outofall of his students knows morethan avolumeofencyclopias
Very intellectual. Helped me articulate ideas I once thought impossible to write down. A genius, simply said. A full mental workout in his class.
tough class, he expects alot and sometimes we just cant do it, want us to have intellectual curiousity though some guys just have a huge workload and no time
Cool guy but tough class. I certantly learned a lot from him in writing
I like him as a person, but as a teacher, we just don't agree, especially on the Odyssey...I probably gave away who I am, didn't I
Fantastic teacher. Hugeimprovement in writing/style.
Had him for AP Writing... lets you do your own thing, but expects a lot from you. Helped my writing a great deal.
He's biased....if he doesn't agree with your POV, he bases you rgrade on it
AP Writing is maybe the best class ever... Collins is the man
