VT is the best teacher I've had at Churchill. He made AP US History understandable and even mildly interesting, and is also a cool guy. I got a 5 on the AP with very little self-study because of his teaching.

VT IS A BOSS. that being said, his teaching style isn't the greatest. I have so much respect for him as an intellectual and as an adult, but he's not great at teaching. He kind of just puts ppts up to be copied, and then on further reflection, those notes aren't really that helpful. One-on-one, van tassell is a superb teacher. In class he's easily
