Brilliantly talented guy!!! He could ride a two wheeled bicycle WITHOUT training wheels when he was 3 years old!
He was a cool teacher but his essays were hard and he graded harshly. You have to do your homework to get a good grade and study for vocab, do not skip the vocab!
the man is a pompous jerk, and i mean that in the best possible way.
Get to know this teacher on a personal level and you will truly be enlightened.
