Mr. Tsuj wasn't the most pleasant of teachers and certainly wasn't the friendliest, but there was this sense of leadership and integrity that lay deep inside his teaching ability that motivated students to work hard in his class. His tests were out of this world hard, and he would critique you on the smallest things, but as a teacher, he knew best for his students and his efforts have inspired others to strive for their dreams.

Tsuj is hands-down the best English teacher I have (and probably will ever have) had. You can tell that he is extremely passionate about not only literature and writing, but about teaching. He truly cares about his students and wants everyone to do their best, that's why his class is difficult. If you're reading this now and have him, consider yourself lucky. He is incredible and changed my perspective of literature completely. Thanks for everything, Tsuj!

BE GRATEFUL TO HAVE THIS AMAZING PERSON AS A TEACHER. I had him last year and I WISH that he had moved up with us. Yes, he's one of those amazing life-changing teachers, so be grateful, children. His tests are HELL, though... To ace this class, you must a) Pay attention, b) get public speaking skills, c) get on his good side, d) TRY, TRY, TRY, e) READ. IN. BETWEEN. THE. LINES (especially when you get to reading assigned books, and f) don't restrict/hold yourself back when writing or reading.
