Winter 2020 - Greg is such an awesome person! Coming into the class, I definitely was not the most excited about English or the topic of exploring L.A. and its development. However, Greg displayed a passion and enthusiasm for the subject that made it really enjoyable to learn and participate in class. He always led the class in such a kind manner that really made everyone feel included, and really wanted the best for all of his students. In terms of the work, I think he was really fair with what he gave us, and he made it extremely clear he wanted to help us if he could. Definitely go into his office hours just to talk about the classwork or about anything because he is so friendly and helpful. The service-learning component of the class was also really awesome, and it let me find an organization that I want to continue volunteering in the future. Never did I think an English class would become my most enjoyable class at UCLA, but through Greg and his awesome teaching, I can happily say this class was great.
