Had Tom 3 years ago while repeating and havnt left the college since. Such a great teacher, intentionally and unintentionally funny all while actually teaching, can still quote my poetry thanks to him and his little quotes. "Have ya ever seen so much perfection in one room??" "You are the last of the honest brokers"

All the other reviews must be fake!!! Sure Mr. Harris is a nice guy and he's funny for the first week, but he's all over the place. He covers material very ineffectively.
