Sina is a great teacher. There was never a dull moment in class, and his discussions are always interesting. The questions he brings up in class are challenging; trust me, you will learn to think and speak differently by the end of taking his class. He's got a witty sense of humor and if you don't like to talk or participate, beware. You are going to be picked on! But seriously, I think that even if you aren't an avid reader or a big fan of Charles Dickens, he's the kind of teacher who will motivate you to become a better writer. Great class, I highly recommend this for anyone who is interested in literature or wants to improve/expand writing skills.
