I had him for AP English at West Potomac. On the first day he pulled me out of class to ask who I had write my entrance essay for me, because he literally could not believe that I had been able to write it (despite the fact that you had to have A's in your previous English classes and also test into the class). I am Black. In a school of 3,000 students there were only two Black students in his AP English classes, including me, and that conversation showed me why. Glad he is no longer teaching.
The man has a very strict template by which he grades by, expect to copy down things word for word and to regurgitate his feeble and misguided literary analysis, with no alteration or originality. He
He rocks! His tests can be difficult if you don't do the reading or just Sparknotes it, but he really wants you to do well and is pretty chill about project and essay deadlines.
his class is difficult, truly college-level...but he treats students as equals and you can learn a TON from him.
Great teacher! Prompts you to think about the material and offers important insights to the text. Funny man! Makes class fun and interesting. Read carefully, because those reading quizzes are detailed
Nicest teacher ever! She works with you and really tries to make the class fun. not hard at all, definitely one of the best teachers @ mclean!!
Doesn't cover material with enough depth, however the class' lack of challenge and mind-blowing insight is eclipsed by great enthusiasm and geniality to which all teachers, and people, should aspire.
I miss his class already (MHS06). Excellent teacher who gives his students more than enough opportunities to redeem themselves if they find themselves in the path of academic decline
I had his class six years ago and remember it as one of the best in high school. He got me to enjoy reading...seriously
hilarious eccentric teacher class is always fun, but he is hard and expects a lot, but a great class.
Mr. Sin is the best!!! he'll teach you how to write if you are willing to put in the effort plus hes hilarious
Pretty hard, but he has a sporadic personallity that he infuses class with.
he's hilarious and he loves what he does. if you get him, consider yourself lucky.
Real hard teacher, but he's funny and great at teaching. I learned a great deal from his class.
This guy is awesome. By far the coolest teacher in all of McLean.
favorite teacher ive had, looked forward to his class every morning i had it
Not even my teacher... Comes in to Munakers class ALL THE TIME and they sing great songs.. man i want some Rocket Fuel ;)
THE GREATEST TEACHER ALIVE!!!!! he will teach you soooo much without boring you... you will never want to miss his class
Very cool and sporadic. Pretty good teaching methods, interesting class. Compared to team taught honors class, much easier. You will like him.
If you graduate from MHS w/o having taken Mr. Sin's Eng 11 GT... you are missing out no questions asked!!!
I was his TA, he was amazing.... had him 3 years in a row
Very hard, but a very good teacher - prepared me well for AP Journalism
What other teacher has Winston (the moose) in his room?
Keep your eyes on your fries and don't let the sun catch you crying
