Alan James is very knowledgable, however lacks the capacity to teach; most classes are spent reading aloud from source texts or talking about his personal life. His marking of essays is overly critical - e.g, one student was told she "wrote like a 13 year old girl" - and those seeking clarification on how to improve are rebuffed or given unconstructive, generalist remarks. He is also extremely unprofessional, shaming students with low marks in front of the whole class.
Absolute genius. Had him for a literature lecture and he spoke magic. Needs to be a lecturer somewhere cos I want to learn from this guy
Best teacher of my life. I will fight anyone that disrespects him to the death. He made English and Literature my favourite subject and has continued to inspire me 4 years on! No doubt he will into the future too. LOVE YOU AJ!
Alan James is the best teacher I have ever had. He has paved the way for many students futures, inspired them and greatly assisted them in their academic success. Students with any intelligence or depth would know this - while he has been accused of playing favourites, it is obvious he will lend a hand to any self respecting student that values their education. Impressing Mr James is something many students including myself constantly aimed for, and I am glad I was able to.
best guy ever all ways has an ear for you and will stick his neck out to help eaisly the best bloke
Has the coolest accents when he reads his lines lol!!! Awsome teacher tho!!
Would do anything to ensure that his students have a comfortable and happy learning environment but is also a very capable teacher whilst maintaing appropriate and reasonable disciplinary techniques.
