Best teacher in ASR. Cuts the crap from English syllabus by doing easier poems and focusses on giving solid answers. Besides that, I've never met a more interesting nor affable man as Al O'Connor. Just don't ask him about how he nearly died...

Top Marks, I have a lot of respect for what he does. He's humble too about how good a teacher he is. Overall, he's a very good man and cares about his students.
