Mr. Austin is the hardest AP English teacher out of the three, but he knows what he is doing. He was my favorite teacher and my least favorite teacher. The workload was rough sometimes and his grading

British accent is perfect. He is very different from other Xavier teachers. I still feel like he tries to find meaning in things where there is none, which is pretty typical of english teachers.

I struggled a lot in his class in the beginning but when I showed an effort he really helped me to improve my score. He's an amazing teacher and impacts many students lives.

one of the best teachers ever. he is the first one to actually critique and improve my writing, and he wrote me a great rec. expects a lot of you and you need to be on the ball with discussions in class. he is so amazing, i was surprised at how nice and approachable he is.

One of the best teachers I had in all my years at Xavier. Intelligent, made class discussions interesting, and had a sense of humor. If you put in the work there is a lot to be gained from his class.

his grading system is somewhat arbitrary. he ranks students very quickly and bases his grades on what he thinks students at different "ranks" deserve. a great knowledgeable teacher. writes good recs.

One of the teachers you have to struggle with at first, but once you can connect on the same level, he's simply amazing! Took me from nothing (2) 1st sem, to a 4 in AP Eng by April

Mr. Austin always has amusing stories and genuinely knows his stuff and how to push you to learn more and try something new. Take his shakespeare class! SO FUN.

The toughest at XCP. One of the few amazingly great teachers there too. Wish I had him all 4 years. Listen and watch, you'll learn and smile.
