He makes a good impression to new students of the high school, but some say he can be rude, which I haven't seen... yet.

His inability to follow through and re-teach what is continually being missed by multiple students is one of the reasons he is not an effective teacher. It may be a student's responsibility to ask questions, but this leads me to the second reason he is not a good teacher. If students ask questions, his answers generally are not answers rather they are comments made to embarrass or make his students feel inadequate. His grading is harsh without looking at the whole... he is very critical of mla

I don't understand what everyone's complaints are. Seeing these comments scared me going into his class, but he is a really nice person, very knowledgable, and knows how to run a classroom. He is lenient on late work, gives out 70%, and has many surreal and entertaining anecdotes. I feel as though I'm one of his favorites, but regardless he's a great teacher. Don't listen to the hate. Just don't do anything stupid to MAKE him dislike you, be a student, that's it.

Hurrainko is one of the best teachers I have ever had he is Fun nice and can always find some way to teach you something he has certainly helped me over the year. One thing you notice about him is that he has had A LOT of weird jobs. If you have the chance to take his class of freshman LA/Com 1 then say take it, it will be one of your most memorable classes ever.

People What is wrong with you? This guy was one of my best English teachers I've ever had. He really had helped my essays. Sure he might have been a bit rough on the grades but hey it really makes you work hard.

When will this class be over?! Enough already! Some assignments are instructive, but he beats it into the ground until it's really no fun. Mercy is not in his vocab.

Okay, number one, if you want an easy class, don't take this one, thats why its called advanced, its hard. Mr. Hurrianko is a good teacher, knows more than enough about english, very good at thinking and reasoning, but can sometimes expect students to know something they don't, and I think that's what people mean by arrogant. Just don't mess up on MLA and you will probably be fine.

Hello fellow students. I believe you are all familiar with a Mr. Tim Hurrianko. It is obvious he lusts for Ms. Padilla, despises the administration at Rocklin High School (Ms. Knox), and enjoys video taping his students. He is very condescending and often unreasonable in class. Outside of class though, he his slightly more manageable, but there is little difference in his arrogant nature. In summary, Hurrianko is a sketchy man, and if you are having doubts about his class maybe take regular LA.

Mr. Hurrianko is very strict and assigns many homework as well as projects, but overall, he cares for his students and actually teaches something to his students. He is very knowledgeable in his profession and even more intuitive in deductive reasoning.

I think Mr. Hurrianko was the worst teacher I've ever had. I'm so glad that the year is over tomorrow and I will never have to be in his class. He is not helpful or clear about anything.

Mr. Hurrianko is by far the best English teacher that I have ever encountered. They style of teaching that he uses has no flaws. Those who do not like him are the ones who are lazy and incompetent.

His class is pretty tough when you dont do your work but when you try to do good in his class, you pass with an "A". AR is most important part you HAVE to do because it can really boost your grade! :]

His class is tough and strict. Although knowledgable and striving for perfection, I don't see any egotism in him. Most hate his tough class, but the class is THE most helpful english class on campus.

He has a sense of humor, and he is usually clear about what he wants to do. some assignments were kind of annoying though. Once i was late to class, and he didn't give me a detention, but I'm guessing he rarely does it.
