Jim Willis is an all around fantastic individual. I could listen to his lectures and stories for hours due to his brilliant speaking styles and awesome stories. I am not a fan of English/literature at all, but somehow was always exited to come to a night class. I highly recommend Mr. Willis, this was my favorite class I have taken. Easy Grader.

He is the best English teacher I've ever had. He's funny and engaging and very smart. He is very flexible when it comes to essay writing. The tests are easy but you have to have read everything.

The greatest teacher I have ever had. Not only did I learn about the subject matter; I also learned more about what it means to be human. He is a gifted writer and has the biggest heart. He is available for help anytime and cares about the success of his students. Make sure to do all of the reading he assigns. It's a lot of work, but worth it.

Love Mr. Willis! TAKE HIM! He loves teaching. Lots of reading. A midterm on a book. FInal is accumulative of the reading. You need the books. Work hard and study. Beyond all of this, Mr. Willis taught me so much and if you are willing to learn then you will love his lessons. There is a point to all the reading he assigns. GREAT TEACHER!

Best teacher at Las Positas! He can be so funny, but also very deep and serious when he tells his personal stories. He's an awesome person and I have gained so much from taking his class. I really encourage everyone to take any of his classes.

I love him! He is so fun and he keeps the class interesting. This was an easy A if you studied. There is a lot of reading, but most of the stories are not boring. We did a ton of reading in class. He is an easy grader on essays. I recommend this class to everyone. He will really get you to appreciate English! A++++++

This guy is an AMAZING teacher. I learned so much from his class compared to any other English class I've ever taken. His English 1A class wasn't the easiest, as there was a lot of studying and work to do, but he keeps you on task and interested in the material. I highly recommend this teacher. He tries his best to help you with whatever you need.

Mr. Willis is such a nice teacher. He's funny and his classes are long, but you can tell he has a real passion for English. He assigned 5 essays, ALL of which are mandatory, a weekly quiz (based on whatever two books he assigns), and sadly focuses a LOT on grammar. (But what do you expect, it's 1A.) Take him and you'll love him!

Covers a lot of materials. Assigned four essays and were graded fairly easy. The only quiz was over 100 questions of Les Miserables. The final had over 150 questions with the majority being quotes from materials read, but were not told what the quotes were. Also, it counts for half your semester grade. Learned some things, but find someone else.

Very knowledgeable and fun. Throughout the class you write a handful of essays and have a couple of tests. The final is based on every story you read, so either read them all or just pay attention when he reviews them in class. Awesome teacher. Take him if you get the chance.
