ENG043 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A

He is a wonderful teacher. He knows alot about the subject he teaches,and knows how to help everyone out. For the time I had him, he did not play favorites or anything like that. He doesn't phones or laptops to used or out in class either. Also he is very understanding of things, and will understand if you need more time on certain assginments.

Awesome teacher. Very knowledgeable and loves the material. I could never have learned as much as I did in this subject with any other teacher. He is also a good writer who is published and not afraid to use his own material in class. I recommend him for any English class and there should be no other option.

Truly fantastic teacher! Hilarious and so in love with the subject that it made the experience so special. He gave a lot of work, you have to read a book a week and every book usually has a paper to go along with it but its simple. He was always there to help and so nice and friendly. Definitely take a class with him when you get the chance!Great!

Mr. Parlato is an amazing teacher. Although he does give a lot of essays and his essay guidelines are very complex, he is willing to go above and beyond to help his students. He doesn't want to see anyone fail and is always willing to give you another chance. Even if you hate writing as I do he is my favorite english teacher.

Mr. Parlato is amazing, and as long as you try, he'll work with you. You have the option to make up anything in his class to get a better grade, so that person who did bad on essays obviously didn't take advantage of it. He's a teacher, he's not supposed to do the work for you! That being said, be prepared for lots of group work and essays!

Great teacher! Wasn't really familiar with the section of fiction that was covered but found it rather interesting. Parlato is a great teacher! If you like Young Adult Fiction, he's the teacher to take!

DO NOT take this class unless English is your major or you're very interested in it. Parlato is really nice but he's super obsessed with english. Not fair grading to ppl who are just in the class because they have to take it. I got an A on both of his tests but did bad on papers and he gave me a C. If you hate writing papers, DONT take him.

Lots of group work, essays, and readings, but don't fear! Mr. Parlato helps you every step of the way and is a very fair grader. It's a plus that he's a genuinely nice guy! I will be taking another class of his as soon as I can, that's for sure.
