The man said I was extremely mediocre at English. Knew what he was talking about. I'm now a college lecturer. Never knew what he wanted. Didn't he ever realise he used capital letters all the time?

Classes were unstructured and ambiguous. What should have been the most interesting subject was turned into a battle to stay awake. Did not do what he was paid to do.

Incapable as a teacher. Awful pity as he had charisma by the bucket load. Class would always lull one into a relaxed mood. Best sampled on a friday evening.
