I took Heelan's acting class this past fall and it was by far the best experience I've had at Andover so far! He is very passionate about theater and really motivates students to get into visual arts during their time at Andover. Every class with him is a riot and he has the funniest, wackiest sense of humor. He is truly one of the best and most inspirational teacher Andover has seen. :) Thank you, Mr. Heelan
He is so great!! Always tried to help me improve my speaking skills
By far, the best teacher I have ever had. Mr. Heelan is funny, brilliant, kind and caring. His public speaking class was the best class I have ever taken at Andover.
Was one of the best and kindest teachers I ever had. Phillips Academy was very lucky to have him. ALways encouraged people to believe in themselves.
Over 20 years later and I still remember him as one of my favorite teachers. His passion and love for theater was transferred to me.
I'm surprised he doesn't have a solid 5.0 rating. He is the best public speaking teacher ever. He's hilarious, understanding, and his class will really help you enjoy an otherwise stressful term. Great teacher if you want to enjoy life and have lots of free cuts.
Hilarious. Down to earth. Easy to talk to. You MUST have him as a teacher before you graduate--playwriting, theater, anything.
He is one of the most delightful people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. So talented at what he does, he is truly incredible and hilarious!
In the 4 years I went to PA, this guy was the best english teacher I had. Playwriting (05!!) was fantastic! You work for the fun of it and you learn a lot too. A genius. Take it.
his class is really an experience.he pokes fun at everyone but in a good-natured way.he flawlessly targets problems in your speech and tells you how to fix them
It is obvious that Heelan is into is own stuff more than he is into teaching. But hey gotta respect that. Really enjoyable though don't take him too seriously!
Fantastic teacher and human. A theatrical genius. Very funny, random, learns from students as well as teaches them. I am so proud to know this guy!
There are no words to explain what an amazing person this teacher is. Kevin Heelan is a God that descended upon earth. He is the incarnate of cool. And he makes people's lives better at Andover.
I have Heelan for public speaking. He's a really good guy, his classes are a lot of fun, and he obviously knows what he's talking about, I mean, he's a pretty prominant playwright. I can't emphasize enough the fact that he really knows his stuff.
He is the shizzit. He's my DC advisor that I meet with every week.
one of the best teachers I've ever had. I think he actually likes me!
He's easy and hilarious. He even once tackled me in class
