I worked with him last summer and read/analyzed texts related to history. I was initially struggling with writing analytical and argumentative essays for my history classes at school, but his classes helped me a lot. Even for short writing assignments that I did for homework for him, he would edit them thoroughly and tell me how I can improve my thesis or topic sentence to make them more argumentative. Also, he was very passionate and knowledgeable when we were reading texts related to history. Going over those readings and discussing them with them helped me a lot when I went back to school.
