Dr. Tayyar is a fantastic teacher. If you go to class, participate in class discussions (or simply listen if you're shy)and read the assigned reading you will do fine. He is Extremely helpful so take advantage of that. He responds quickly to emails and will meet up before and after class to help guide you with papers. Side note: 3 books & 4 papers.

Paul is the best professor I have ever had. He won the Teacher of the Year 2012 at GWC, and I think he totally deserves it. My critical thinking has been improved so much after taking his class. You never get bored in the class. I always got "Wow" while listening to his lecture. Highly recommended!

With his Ph.D., he brings wealth of info on literatures. First time taking his class. Treats you with respect no matter what your opinion may be. He respects your views. If you are shy, his class will help you open up and express your thoughts as he always finds ways to support what you say genuinely. 3 out-of-class essays, 8 journals, 5 poems. FUN

Took this class Spring 2013. Very interesting and fun class. All take-home essays when I had his class.Each essay was about 4-5 pages but I believe they were all meaningful ones. The essays made you think critically. Come to his office hours if you want help on your essays. He tells you exactly what he is looking for to get you that A!

Paul is a great professor, always willing to listen to different opinions and adds onto it with his own. If you like analyzing literature, you'll love this class. I'm so glad I took this class.

Excellent professor. I love how it lets the class lead the discussion because he then jumps in and add his own opinion too. I love how he always encourage his students and theres never like a wrong answer to him !

This is my second class with Tayyar. Overall, as a person he is one of the nicest people I've met. As a professor, I dislike his teaching method because he often relies on students to lead class discussions. He's generous when it comes to grading so that is a plus to students who are weak at writing.

Dr. Tayyar is the best English professor you can possibly imagine. Indeed, he inspires you and make you look at different point of view in life. He does not only teach English, he also teaches the philosophy of life. Great professor, he is just amazing.

He is the best English teacher you can possibly take within the coast community college system. You learn a lot on his class and his goal is to expose you to as much literature as possible. 4 papers. He's the type of teacher who cares about his students also. Trust me, I wasn't really an English person until I took his class

Paul Tayyar is charming, handsome, intelligent, and fun, but do not be fooled by his easy-going appearance! He grades quite tough and corrects grammar errors page by page on the essays. Class is heavily based on discussions, which is a bore most of the time. As long as you try your best, there is no reason not to pass his class with an A or a B!

I took the summer session class. Essays were easy as long as you know how to format them or word them the way he wants it. Every class was discussion based, and we watched a movie here and there. It's group discussions (he will walk around to listen sometimes), and you don't have to participate in the class discussions.
