His office hours are really helpful, and if you want good essay grades, come often to him. He can get you a max 7 score, but not 8/9. His general essay advice is useful from college onward. I prefer that he starts using technology more so we can't blank out anymore when he says the same Hoageisms throughout the whole year. He does provide insight into confusing sections of a book or poem. He doesn't teach meter or how to get a good score on MC. If you're on his good side, then you'll be fine.

He's one of the best teacher's I've ever had for English. His class is not easy but it isn't terribly hard either. Just don't slack off, participate, and most of all, don't sleep in his class. His jokes aren't always funny but he's really great.

The best English teacher I've had by far. You have to work for your grade, but it's well worth it. AP Lit prepares your writing for college courses. You'll definitely learn a lot!

I really enjoyed his class for AP Lit. I think it was one of the few classes I had to work hard in to earn an "A". By the end of the year, you will feel as if you have accomplished a lot. And if you are taking the AP Lit test, you will feel prepared. He is a great teacher and understands what he is doing. He teaches quite like a college professor might for discussion/lecture. Take him if you can!

The difficulty of his class is mainly determined by how well you can write. Expect to write about 10 essays per semester. He is fairly funny and actually teaches.

Been graduated for four years, but I still remember what a great teacher he is. Best english teacher at TCHS, and possibly best teacher period. Simply a joy to take his class.
