Howard is a great ball of semi-awkward fun. He's a grad student who loves Latin, though he isn't uptight about it at all. He can get a little flustered if you ask a question that requires that he deviate from his lesson plan, but in general he is very helpful and can explain the complexities of the language effectively. He's really made me consider a latin concentration. He's also somewhat forgiving if you seem to really "get" the material. I am hoping to get an A- in this class, though it certainly took effort.
