He's awesome, he's nice, and though he may get a bit agitated at times, he's a great teacher. And he even stood on his head for us once!

He's really nice and you can talk to him about anything. If you listen to him, he'll make you much better writer. You'll thank him for the vocab after the SAT's

Writing conferences are annoying but I see the point behind them, vocab is an easy A every week if you read a lot, assignments are often unclear and confusing

Treats students like 5-year-olds, doesn't hand ANYTHING back, gives pointless assignments, never plans classes, plays favorites

He has no idea how to run a class or how to advance a student's understanding of English. He has an asinine grading system where he doesn't give back papers unless you sign up for a painfully long writing conference. He is the worst teacher I've ever had.
