Liked him at first, as his is a very entertainin teacher. But after 2 years of gettin C's wit no direct reason or explaintion as to how i can improve, it has become quite monotinous! Now fnd it very borin nd find english a chore. Good hard work is rarely rewarded!

Eccentric, but in the best possibly way. English is hard but I appreciate his teaching. He's really sound and really fun. Legend, never ever had a problem.
