Tufts University: Brian Jordan - English - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Brian Jordan | ENG001 - EXPOSITORY WRITING | English2006-05-15

Review:
Brian Jordan was a great teacher. He was very down to earth and exceled in the small classroom environment. He definitely was very passionate about writing and also the eclectic group of subjects (like the movie Crash, and the book Blink) that we spent alot of time writing about. Only complaints are that he is slow to grade and hard to get a hold of sometimes. He really made me a better writer.

Workload:
About one essay every one and a half weeks. Three to five pages double spaced. We worked in stages and he helped alot with editing. Classes rarely ran the full plus block. Not too tough

Brian Jordan | ENG002I - Family Ties | English2006-02-01

Review:
Great professor, cares deeply about his students. Very accessible, and unlike other English teachers, doesn't let his ego get in the way of praising students' work.

Workload:
Manageable work: usually a paper once a week, 3-5 pages in length. The syllabus makes it look like a lot of work, but don't worry, he doesn't follow it.

Brian Jordan | ENG002I - Family Ties | English2005-12-07

Review:
Brian Jordan is an incredible teacher. He is very interested in his students progress and he takes time to learn a lot about each student personally. He is a very understanding man/god and truly cares about his class. He is also very helpful when it comes to improving your writing. I have also heard from several reputable sources that Brian Jordan?s laughter can cure a multitude of diseases and apparently he once revived a baby suffering from SIDS by simply smiling at it. If you take his class you will not be disappointed and if you are then you didn't deserve to be in Brian Jordan's presence anyhow it is your fault and his that made the class less than perfect.

Workload:
The workload is manageable and there is usually one paper due a week but sometimes you will be working a more than one paper at once. The length of most of the papers range from 3-6 pages and he is very flexible about lengths and due dates.

Brian J Jordan is a sculptor of words; a humble poet; brilliant, with a voice like sandpaper and water color (to quote wendy).

Brian Jordan | ENG002I - Family Ties | English2005-11-08

Review:
Brian Jordan is amazing. He's more of a friend than a teacher. If you ever need anything, he's there. Extensions are granted, and his class is so incredibly laid back. His assignments were well thought-out and interesting and different. The only annoying thing is that sometimes it's too laid back. He takes some time in returning assignments. Take this class.

Workload:
Very reasonably amount of work. The papers are not long, and you will not find yourself speed-writing to meet deadlines.

Brian Jordan | ENG001 - EXPOSITORY WRITING | English2004-11-18

Review:
Brian is wonderful! He is obviously passionate about what he does, and believes in sharing that with his students. Writing assignments are varied and interesting, and he has gone out of his way to meet with students that wish to have instruction outside of the classroom. He is innovative and hardworking. Very enjoyable.

Workload:
Very little reading necessary. There is always a writing assignment, but they are very manageable and usually fun to do. The class is not too consuming.
