He seems like a good teacher but he is really unclear. He's very quiet in class and its sometimes very hard to understand.

Amazing teacher. People say Breiger is an easy teacher, but I know a lot of people got B's on essays and even B's in the class. He provides an extremely interesting perspective on writing, english, and modern topics. I really learned a lot from his class. I ended up getting an A in the class along with a 5 on the APENG test.

I was disappointed when I found out I had Brieger instead of O-Connor for APENG. I wanted a teacher who I would really learn from and I had heard that Brieger was super easy. He may not be super difficult, but you learn so much. You don't realize how much you are learning by listening to him. My writing has improved so much. He wants to help students not just pass the AP test and learn how to write, but help them become better people.

Mr. Breiger is truly an amazing teacher. He really tries to help all his students pass and become successful. Although it is very hard to understand him sometimes, if you really do pay attention you will learn some very important life lessons. If you have him for APENG he will prepare you for the MC in the AP test. Try to stay awake in his class for you can learn a lot from this inspiring man.

Mr. Breiger was a better teacher than I ever could have expected. There's not too much homework, and sometimes it was hard to stay awake, but looking back, I learned a lot. He teaches subtly, without making you feel like you're learning a lot, but he gives you a lot of good insight about books. Focuses on essays and the American Dream. Really nice guy, just pay attention and you'll learn a lot. It's a shame people write him off so early; He got me a 5 on APENG!

He was a terrible advisory teacher to me. I have him for advisory and failed the easiest class. He is really unreasonable when it comes to talkin. I got a detention for simply asking to get a book from my locker and when he said no, I said "what" . I don't know how well he teaches but towards me he isn't the best person I'm just rating him on how he treats me. I was a quite student but when he got my blood boiling I tried to stay calm. If you have him for advisory SWITCH OUT!!!

Breiger is more of a college professor type than a high school teacher in my opinion. He spends most of class time in a college lecture format, which can be a bit boring sometimes, and he's a bit disjointed in the way he lectures. He is not very organized at all, which is frustrating, but he is excellent at discovering life lessons and universal truths in the literature we study.

Mr. Breiger is quite an interesting man. He plays the harmonica during class, and when he is happy, throws a football to ask questions. If you can figure out how to understand him, you will realize that he is very deep and can offer many opinions. However, most students fall asleep in his class because he speaks with very little clarity, and the required books for English are just not that interesting (esp. Old Man and the Sea). Stay awake though, and you will receive some real treasure.
