Mr. Vorkink is without a doubt one of the best teachers I have ever had the pleasure of learning from. He works you really hard, and makes you read a lot of dense, challenging material, but he expects you to arrive to class perplexed. He guides you through discussions perfectly, knowing that his students aren't expected to understand the readings entirely. Make good, insightful points in class, ask thought-provoking questions, and show that you are passionate about learning, and you'll be fine.
Mr. Vorkink is a great teacher. He gets his students well into their disucssions and motivates passion from each of us. He is more than willing to sit and talk about anything and he is extremely easy to approach.
Most influential teacher in my four years at Exeter. This man taught me how to think. Always challenges you. Knows seemingly everything. I have infinite respect for Mr. V. It's a privilege just to be in his class.
very hard grader- he seems to think its his mission to single handedly get rid of grade inflation- but a great teacher-his social ethics class is one of the best courses offered
To every1 who says V taught you how to think: if youre here you should know how to think. you have intelligent opinions he holds it against you b/c we are supposed to be "ignorant"
V is one of the best that Exeter has to offer and he is badly misrepresented by those with weak and feeble, arrogant minds, but he is simply amazing. I absolutely love this guy.
VORKINK IS THE MAN! Philosophy is the best class ever. Plus, Vorkink is just the best...ever.
I can feel myself improving than last year and we have a good opportunity to express our feelings, essays for us to improve in wrting, reading, and vocabulary.
I loved his class & looked forward to it everyday. I dont think he was a hard grader, and he made you think. He wasnt too clear but that was the point its relig
He's a hard teacher...but you need a bit of both hard and easy teachers to truly experience exeter...he has taught me to be open-minded
Cool, but SOOOO HARD!!! Take his Ethics class, it's a good time. Beware of his philosophy class!
No concept of how long homework takes. Just read exodus 1-20, it will take you less than an hour when in fact it took everyone twice as long. Fun guy though
He really made us think about the readings that he gave us. The grade he gave me brought my entire GPA crumbling down, but I had a good time all term.
Love the class period. The papers make my brain hurt so much. THE PAIN!!! Watch out! Being within a 50ft radius of him will lower your grade. I Like the topics.
we didnt do anything in class, just goofed around, so i dont feel like i learned much from him
This cat is fuuuuunny, but he is reeeeally hard also. Watch out, he may seem friendly but his grades aren't.
Great Teacher, Funny Guy, but i have to agree your grade may suffer a bit :-/
Very smart, funny, and cool. He provides for a Great class, but your grade wont be pretty.
