Mr. Sullivan is an excellent teacher, one of the best at Mira Loma in my opinion. He cares a lot about his students and about history (about which he is very knowledgeable). Really introduces you to the college experience. Although his class is a lot of work and exams are difficult, there is a lot of extra credit in the class and getting an A is easy, as long as you submit homework. He does yell and tease quite a bit but this is all good-natured. He is a very funny and caring man.

One of my favorite teachers at ML, very fun, very knowledgeable. Yells a lot, but he isn't usually particularly mad unless you cheated or repeatedly piss him off. Juniors, you have to go try-hard on the IA if you want to get a good grade. Essay/tests are also very hard, never even got a B on them, even if I tried very hard and wrote a good essay and memorized a through outline.

HE'S NOT YELLING, HE'S JUST EXTREMELY PASSIONATE ABOUT HIS SUBJECT !!! SULLIVAN IS A TOTALLY AWESOME GUY BUT HIS CLASS CAN GET A LITTLE OLD IF YOU'VE BEEN IN IT FOR THREE YEARS STRAIGHT. But in all seriousness, his class is epic. You may not retain a lot of information and if you're taking the IB HOA exam, expect to do a LOT of self-teaching from HOA, but hey, it works for some people! He is intimidating, but if you catch him at the right time (outside the classroom tbh) he is extremely helpful.

He may be a bit intimidating, but I highly recommend him! I love history and I love HoA. If you had him freshman year and want to be in HoA, be prepared to step up your studying skills! Essay tests are the death of me but I admit that's because I don't study much. Wonderful college-level course that excellently prepares you for the HL and beyond, with the bonus of humor and free extra credit. Do the readings, and you'll be fine.

WOW! What a great teacher. He was VERY funny and made fun of the students a lot, which was hilarious if you weren't the one being picked on. His tests were ok, and all of the material is from what he taught you. I suggest that you READ THE BOOK WHEN HE TELLS YOU TO! But his extra credit was a life saver. One of my favorite teachers.

People are usually intimidated by him but if you're comfortable with being yelled at (not necessarily in a threatening manner) you'll be fine. He is extremely knowledgeable in his field and I generally looked forward to class (except on essay test days). I found that he has genuine respect for his students as long as you conduct yourself with integrity. He is very generous with extra credit and it really saved me. I consistently failed his essay tests and still got a really good grade.

He's also a bit loud, so don't sit near the front, or near the door (where he sometimes lectures from) if you don't want to go half-deaf by the end of the year. Great guy and great teacher though.
