THE WORST EVER- many others agree- He is an enigmatic marker. His assignment specifications are vague. Adherence to his additional instructions are unrewarded. He lectures very little. Students form discussion groups on their own accord. Most of the time is spent listening to students' improvised, superficial, & lengthy interpretations of poetry.

Daniel is an amazing teacher! I was not interested in English prior to this course, but he brought out the best in the subject and kept everyone engaged. He draws on personal opinion and class discussion which is thorough and very helpful. Would HIGHLY recommend and really enjoyed his teaching style! Very great prof.

I really enjoyed Daniel's class. I found some of his assignments a bit confusing but if you asked him for clarification he did a great job at making sure you knew what to do. He was always very calm and happy!

Daniel is a very good English teacher and I really enjoyed his class in my first semester of university. I highly recommend choosing him as a professor if you get the chance.

I really enjoyed Daniel. You have to have a little bit of initiative in his classes. He can be vague but if you ask him to clarify he's super willing to help. I'm surprised how much I ended up loving him. Very kind.

Very knowledgable about writing standards, very helpful as a base for how to write in university. Organized, very open with what his expectations are. If you don't want to do the reading/participate then maybe avoid as participation is a big part of his marking.

Daniel's in class approach to subject material enforced class participation in order for there to be any form of knowledgeable discussion whatsoever. The only issue came was from ignorant masses that refused to read course material and unable to participate in class discussion. It was easy to identify which students were actually in class to learn.

He was very kind, but also really vague at times. I had to get his instructions explained several times before understanding. Fair marker. Unique dude.

This class was the biggest waste of time of any I took in four years. Daniel was a nice enough fellow but completely out of touch with the subject he was supposed to be teaching (computer oriented English). The course materials were old (ICQ is not an emerging technology) and maybe grade 10 level. Utter waste of time and money. Avoid at all costs.
