While he does demonstrate a prolific knowledge of the English language, he has trouble directly relating concepts of the language to the students. He lacks an understanding of how to correctly teach and shows no care for personal student improvement. Unnecessarily difficult and not worth the time of taking his class.

The best teacher I have ever had. Period. Because of him, I can write. The only reason his class is hard is because he is trying to prepare us for college. Poetry week was incredible. I have never experienced anything so worthwhile academically. Absolutely amazing.
