This teacher rocks!!!! He's super chill and very easy going. I learned a lot in his class and our discussions were always very interesting. Awesome class C: also he loves Lord of the Rings, therefore he is a beast.

As long as u write the papers you'll do great!

Aharonian was a fabulous teacher. He was passionate about the materials and class was always fun. He does expect you to read the texts but he chooses books that are "easy readers". If you show up and participate it is an easy class to pass. Take him, he's outstanding, and not bad on the eyes.

Jacob Aharonian was passionate and made class interesting and exciting. His instructions on everything were crystal clear and never hesitated to correct any confusion. He was also incredibly giving in helping improve your work; if you took the time, he would take his time and preread and critique your papers. I found his class. A+ Would take again.

Jake is a great professor with a real passion for literature. He was the most personable professor I've ever had, and it really makes you enjoy the class a lot more. Lots of reading and class discussions, but the atmosphere of the class is very casual. He really turned me on to some great pieces of literature. Definitely recommend.

This class was the only academic class I have ever looked forward to attending. The syllabus and schedule is written to the T and is very organized. Jake is a wonderful, hilarious person who is impossible to dislike. Very relatable, wonderful nerd, and genuinely nice guy. Please take his class - I beg you. You will NOT regret it.

English 1A was a challenging course. Aharonian is a cool guy and is more like a friend. The course focused a lot on aspects of religion (i.e. morals). We discussed our religious beliefs too. I know religion is related to literature, but his teachings were borderline offensive. English 1A was more of a religious studies class than a English class.

What a legend. Class is very relaxed, where we usually just summarize the week's reading, and answer questions on paper and open-ended class discussions. Sometimes we watch movies or TV shows, e.g. Sherlock or Young Frankenstein. Essays were graded very easily (Average B+) His relevant stories always somehow centralize about his children.

Jake's cool, but I found the subject material lacking for what a critical thinking course should be teaching. Nonetheless, it was an easy class.

Mr. Aharonian is a wonderful teacher. He is very clear in his lectures and willing to clarify if it's needed. He made class fun, and English has become one of my favorite subjects. If you have the opportunity to take a class with him, I greatly suggest it. He is a great teacher!

You'll love this class if you're Christian, pseudo-intellectual, not interested in REAL critical thinking, and not interested in actually learning anything besides what you read on your own. Don't take if you passed english 1b with a B or higher.

Very helpful and easy. His instructions were clear and he had a great sense of humor. I actually wanted to come to class instead of dreading it. I got into with an add code. We had way too many students but he made sure to add every student and even switch classrooms for more seating. Awesome teacher hands down!

Jake was by far one of my favorite teachers on campus. I took him for both 1A and 5 and passed both classes with flying colors. He grades essays fairly and even allows you to redo each one for a higher grade. Most of the class is just class discussions and he keeps things fun and interesting.

Aharonian is an interesting teacher. His material promotes a dystopian view of the future. Towards the end of the year, class is let out early often. He is very helpful and allows you to redo any essay you did poorly on. If you put a lot of thought into the essay and proof read it, he grades it easily and he gives good advice about improvements.

Great teacher, had him for 1A, easy going, love class discussions and topics, he just wants to know your opinions and ideas, Essays are not bad, books you dont really have to read, just get an idea so you can contribute to class discussions. Good interesting class. Quizzes arent that big of a deal, no extra tests, final research inclass essay.

Such a great teacher! Probably the best English teacher I've had. He really tries to push you and teaches you to think. Though the work seems hefty on the first day of class, he is quite fair in his gradings. I highly recommend him!
