he was a very helpful teacher. Easy teacher considered a close friend
knows what hes talking about. REALLY hard grader. grammar geek but it a good way. Really good guy. gunna miss him.
Very unhelpful in his role as Head of the English Dept., and will not accomodate.
I had him for Flim as Lit, and though he can be intimidating, if you come to class and pay attention to the movies and to what he says, you will do well on the quizzes (mostly just plot summary), and probably do ok on your essays. Easy B, ok A if you try.
He's a hard teacher but it is possible to get an A. He's fair, and fun.
Had him Freshman English 1. He's a extremely hard teacher, but you do learn a lot from him. Hard grader, but fair. Workload's alright, but he never collects it the day he says he will, which meant that we lost assignments before he collected them. Take him if you like/are good at english.
Had him for Freshman English 1. Teaches you many things about writing, hard essay grader, overall a very fair teacher.
I have him for AP English and I have to say that at first, all the writing was overwhelming, but its gets easier and he's really not as intimidating as people make him out to be. He's actually quite funny. Repetitive, but funny.
Mr. Arber is cool but he is definatley a hard grader! expects a whole lot, and does NOT i repeat NOT have time for freshman at all.
I was uncertain with him at first. He can be intimitating at first but eventuallty you warm up and find out hes a really really good and nice teacher. Easy B.
He's a good teacher, but he expects a lot from you. Very hard A, somewhat easy B
He's a pretty good teacher; classes are basically lectures and discussions so you're bound to learn to analyze (unless you sleep through it). He also throws in Norwegian lessons, a big plus.
He is one of the best English teachers I've ever had, and is as good (if not better) than a lot of the professors I have here at Harvard.
Arber is amazing! His AP class is discusison-based, so students learn how to defend themselves in seminar as well as on paper (despite how intimidating he is). He picks good books that relate to each other well. Lots of work.
he's really good, and you learn a lot, but he didn't really prepare us for the APs
Many people assume that arber's a really hard teacher, its more of the fact of trying or not. If you do all the work and put a little effort into it, you CAN earn an A/B. Just pay attention
Nice, good, hard English teacher. You'll learn sooo much in his class. Essays are okay, but he grades pretty hard sometimes, but if you try your best, and work really hard to improve, you'll get enough points for a high B/A
mr. arber is the best english teacher! he is amazingly hard though. the first trimester it is pretty easy to get a B if you turn in all of ur papers but once he starts giving tests you are screwed. They are way too specific. if you want to learn u should take him but be prepared to work HARD!
He's pretty good. He teaches well and if you take notes in his class then you have a pretty good idea of the test. He sometimes picks on students in front of other teachers.
Good teacher. Critical with even the insignificent assignments (as described by the person below).
wow. well mr arber is a very cool guy. he knows a lot and imparts his wisdom on us. however, hes quite difficult. he couldnt even give me full credit on a useless assignment because it wasnt up to his standards. BAH! make sure you take lots of notes in class and study them for the test! not a lot of homework b/c it takes him FOREVER to grade one assignment
Mr. Arber is a pretty hard teacher, but he's really cool and teaches the class very well. Also, he's really funny and holds a lot of class discussions. He also got me into Shakespeare, which is a miracle.
Yeah, he sure looks intimidating, but he isn't. It was a fun class, and a very easy B if you do your work.
he is the best english teacher I'd ever had. it is intimidating in the beginnig but he is the best english teacher out there
he is one of the worst english teachers ive ever took. he completely embarassed me in front of the entire english department and he does act very pompous and patronizes his student
Thid is a wierd one... Mr. Arber is pretty cool but for AP Lit & Philosophy he doesnt open his mind up, he has preconcieved notion about everything. Good but no Descartes.
mr. arber is one of the best teachers out there. he's really interesting most of the time. you'll be well prepared. just be ready for LOTS of essays and HARD tests
He's a good teacher, but is extremely difficult. He's also really scary.
i learned tons from him, but he's very strict on essays and sometimes pickes on people.
mr. arber isnt so bad. he is actually a pretty good teacher. he sorta of scary, and if u dont pay attention he picks on u. he can be very mean.
good teacher...u learn a LOT however, he's hard n u better try very HARD.. but if u gett on his good side, then he might curve your grade. overall u learn a LOT
mr. arber is a good teacher...i'd recommend him....yea he might be a bit "hard"...but once you are in college he's going to seem very very easy....=]
Mr. Arber rocks.. i learned SOOO much.. his class was lots of fun, as wellll.. YOU should take him
Good teacher to take if you want College-level learning
