Mr Joel is the reason I passed English last year, he is one of the best teachers I have ever had and also a very nice man. I can only hope to have him again!

OK... but couldn't admit his own mistakes, and far to quick to judge and voice opinions on issues that aren't his business and are inappropriate for him to comment on

He does give really good notes, but he just expects you to go along with what they say and not question his views or come up with anything original.

he just tends to ramble on and he might be saying really helpful stuff but it gets lost amoungst the rambling. some people in class talk 24/7 and never get in trouble while others do.

Mr Joel understood what English was all about and tried to put that across to his students. Even though at sometimes he could be grumpy, as everyone can be, he was all in all a great teacher.
