Mr. Crowther's instruction in English was one of factors that most helped me to complete a Bachelor's in Physics at Harvey Mudd College and a PhD in physics at Princeton University. His instruction is worth your investment. If you would like to focus on a STEM discipline, it is helpful to be able to read and compose dense, precise technical text. I tutor high school and college students in physics and calculus, and *reading problem statements* seems to be a recurring source of difficulty.

Mr. Crowther's class' really not as hard as everybody says it is. Listen carefully to his directions & take notes verbatim to get a good grade. He's funny, a little moody at times, but really helpful

Mr. Crowther is intimidating. He's nicer in journalism and his sayings are funnier after you've survived the class. Had to be there!
