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.
I just remember being scared of him. lol... didn't have him most of the year because his wife had cancer (?) or was it him... idk. sucks...
hands down the best teacher ever! not only is he super knowledgeable, but he's funny and you learn so many things from him. glad that i was his last class he taught.
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.
Having Mr. Tsuj has changed my life as a writer, speaker, and student. LISTEN TO WHAT HE TEACHES YOU. he was THE BEST teacher I've ever had. Yes, he is a bit scary. Yes, he is imtimidating. but he is such a sweetheart once you get to know him! He has taught me so much!
BEST TEACHER EVER ont the first day he freaks you out but then you get to know him and find out he is a teddy bear that looks like a tutrle ALWAYS READ YOUR POEMS IN CLASS it dosnt matter if its good or not if you want a good grade then do it
HE is SUPER Strict. Dont be stupid in his class. thats all i can say about that. Also his tests are SUPER HARD. but heÊ»s awesome. apparently he won a national award for teaching english to kids. any ways. just dont be stupid in his class. if your stupid... then good luck buddy ...
One of the best teachers i've ever had! I did not like him at first but he's the best. I learned so much in english that year.
HES THE BEST TEACHER EVA I HATED ENGLISH BUT I LOVE ENGLISH NOW CAUSE IM IN HIS CLASS P.S. DONT TALK BACK TO HIM
He's the reason I love English now. This teacher makes English the best subject ever!
Best English teacher...EVER. He knows everything seriously. He's really funny and witty, so don't talk back to him ever.
Although he looks like a toad, he is easily one of the the best teachers i've ever had. When I had him i really didnt like him, but looking back on it he taught me much more than english.
TSUJ!!! ENUNCIATE YOUR LIP MOVEMENT!!! BEST TEACHER EVER
He was a great teacher! ENUNCIATE YOUR LIP, MOOOOOOOVEMENT! Will miss you Tsuj!(:
the Tsujinator, the great Tsujini, Tsujisaurus Rex... He's pretty beast. He takes his poems very seriosly. =3= haha He's pretty cool. I agree with the last post about the teddy bear :)
Mr. Tsuj is by far the best teacher I have had so far. He acts like a bull dog, but we all know hes a teddy bear on the inside (:
He brought out the writer in me. Now the writer has taken over.
this guy is awesome. we watched this weeping camel movie and it was moving. how do you like dem apples?
TSUJ!!!!!!!! hes like the BEST teacher EVER! and I DON'T LIEEEE!!
Theres a few teachers at Punahou that stand out above the rest. This man is on top of them, looking down at the pile of morons that try to become as great as this man.
I had this man for both English and HR. Mr. Tsuj is passionate about what he teaches and will do his best to spark your mind and mark you with his flame for teaching. C/O 06
By far the most inspiring teacher I've ever had. Smart, funny, and genuinely nice, he knew exactly what he was doing, and it was obvious he was in it for the love of teacher.
best teacher I've ever had!! i cant even watch a movie the same way b/c i keep looking for metaphors
he is intimidating at first. but once you get to know him, he is incredibly awesome. you learn a lot from him. just make sure to pay attention in class, or you'll get yelled at
If you had the teachers of LAM, TSUJ, and KINGS, your set for freshmen+sophmore year. Excellent teachers, and although I was @ bench 50% of the time, Tsuj owns
This guy... this is a great guy. He teaches pride in self-expression, even to those who think they don't care.
i luv u mr. tsuj! you're just a big teddy bear! i will always remember you and what you taught me about poetry (c/o 04!!!)
Changed my view on creative literature forever. I'm a junior and he's still the best teacher i ever had. i appriciate everything he did for me and my class.
awesome teacher, only one that stands out in my mind from bishop. def should teach in academy, you'll be lucky to have him
Tsuj and Lam, those two teachers prepared me for my freshman year. If you have them both, bless your lucky stars.
He's awesome. He may be tough and grumpy, but you have to end up loving him. I think I learned the most about english from him!
he was definitely the best teacher i've ever had. and he was funny cuz he was constantly yelling at ppl
OMG, this teacher is unbelievable good. He sent me tot he bench 3 times- but Im getting As in english cause of him.

"Emphasize your lip movement!!!" and "How you like them apples?!!!
Unforgetable, in a class by himself, the best teacher I've ever had
