Following an amazing English 2H, OD made me doubt him a little bit. At the start of the year he is very intimidating because of his arrogant nature, but once you progress throughout the year you realize that he is an exceptional teacher. He is tough- but he's an H/AP teacher, so he is meant to be tough. He teaches you a lot about how to read critically, and write well. Despite his sometimes-harsh demeanor, he is a great guy.

I was scared of him from the moment I entered the classroom at the beginning of the year, but he is beyond amazing as a teacher. You really don't know how crappy your english is until you take a class with him. What he has tought me, I will use it for now and ever.

Knows what he's talking about but pretty arrogant about it. His reading tests can make or break you. Also, make sure that you look at the vocabulary words for the year because they will not be taught to you over the year. You are responsible for memorizing them on your own.

Worst teacher. Thinks his way of teaching is the best and every other English teacher doesn't know what they're doing. He thinks that reading a book and memorizing each word to put on a test is a good way of learning. I've yet to come across anything having to do with theme, motifs, literary devices, or any of that important stuff... you know, the stuff you write papers on in college? Yeah, that kind of stuff.

Hard! Mean! And doesn't seem to care about the students. Switch out right when you find out that you have him! Trust me, his class will cause you SO MUCH stress.

English is only about adjusting to what each teacher wants each year. He is not so different from the others, except he grades A LOT by name.
