Super nice and understanding prof. His lectures are somewhat bland but they're definitely passable. Assignments were very straightforward and there were many marks taken throughout the semester so the final was only worth 30%. Definitely respects his students and their education. Recommmend!

Professor Taylor is very knowledgable and it is obvious he enjoys teaching. He is easily accessible outside of class and willing to help. Midterms and exams were fair, as is his grading. A portion of your final grade is based off of attendance and class participation. Pay attention in class and stay on top of readings and you'll do well.

Amazing prof. He really knew his stuff and made every class super interesting. Super caring, helpful, and gives away 25% on participation. Midterm was super straightforward, and the essay wasn't too bad either. Would definitely recommend if you like Medieval Studies.

Great prof. Was a bit apprehensive since this was my first seminar course. He made it really easy though. The course isn't too heavy but you do have to go to class prepared. Had a few short assignments, one final paper and a presentation. You'll also be graded on class participation as well. This is a seminar after all. Highly recommend.

He often went off topic and his lecture slides were terrible. He clearly cares a lot about the material and the students but his lectures have nothing to do with what you're tested on. The multiple choice on both the midterm and the final was very difficult.

Taylor is an incredibly engaged and considerate prof. His expectations are clear, reasonable, and he will offer great help if you seek it. Lectures are entertaining, and insightful. He also attempts to get to know a little about his students to better teach them. Reasonable marker, and gives good feedback. One of the best profs I've been taught by.

Great guy! Not a great prof! He has no order to his lectures and bounces from place to place and it's almost impossible to follow. Also, his topics for essays are beyond bizarre so if you are going to take eng 1122 don't take it with him.

Prof Taylor is an excellent prof! His expectations are clear and the feedback he gives on assignments is constructive and very useful. He is a good lecturer and really knows the subject matter. I would definitely take another course with him again.

Overall, a really great guy, though not always perfectly clear (especially in-class discussions). Then again, Old English and Chaucer isn't the easiest. Understands a student's workload, and gives extensions with no problem. I would recommend him to anybody.

Loved him. It was a difficult class but Taylor made it totally interesting. He has a great sense of humour and really interacts with the class. He changed my entire view of Old English and I'm sorry that it's being taken out of the curriculum.

This guy made the class interesting. He's the best teacher I've had, but then looking at the ratings of my profs it really seems I've had bad luck with teachers.

Suck it up! For those of you who said he's too hard, what were you expecting, someone to hold your hand, spoon-feed you and then help you hang your degree?!While Professor Taylor holds high expectations for his students he is one of the most understanding and helpful profs at this school.

I thought this class would be interesting, but he provdides no chronological order to his lectures and its very hard to find a link to all the info he is giving you. A nice man but expects alot out of his students, and a hard marker.

I am a medieval studies student. Proff taylor is a hard teacher because he expects alot out of his students. To the writer who stated that medieval studies is not relevant,i would like to say that medievalists have a passion for what they do and passion doesn't have anything to do with practicality

I dreaded this class going into it, but his enthusiasm made me enjoy it. There's a lot--and I mean a lot--of work required for his class, but, if you do it, you'll do well in the course.

taylor is very very willing to help, enjoys the maestro, subtly insults the idiots in the class, and knows his****. learn it or don't, he doesn't care. and thus, why he's hot.
