This class was tough.
Mr. Wilkey created a strict, clean teaching technique that got me to love English and writing. Doing 3-4 essays a week will make essays in college extremely easy. This class was known to be extremely hard and almost impossible to pass with an A, however I found this class to be very well explained and tutoring was always available. I believe Mr. Wilkey provided all the information needed to pass with an A. My final grade for the class was an A, and I graduated with a 4.0
The highlights of this class had to be the positive energy that was always beaming off Mr. Wilkey. His love for English and writing inspired me to want to learn more about everything we were learning. I learned about iambic pentameter, the three sentence intro, to-be verbs, and most importantly how to write an essay in under 30 min.

Advice for students:
Do all given assignments the day they are given, pay complete attention to details he gives they will most likely be on the AP test. Don't be discouraged when given back your first essay, it's better to have mistakes on your work because it makes it easier to fix them and grow since you know exactly what you need help on. Take all the notes you can, ask questions, and don't sit in the back if you want to pass the class, it's easy to become distracted.
