He is intelligent and a good teacher, but the class is so boring! And since I am not the greatest writer and admitted it to begin with through one of the early assignments, he didn't really like me. He is kind of a quirky guy. That being said, he is really smart, which I would appreciate more if he wasn't so cocky. His comments on papers can be helpful, but once you follow his advice from the comments, he finds new ways to correct you. Try not to take UW with him, but, if you have no choice, go to the writing center frequently.
