"I wasn't surprised by the class having a great teacher—however, I feel really thankful that what I found was a teacher who was incredibly knowledgeable and giving of that knowledge. Andrew has a depth of experience and education to draw on—but at the same time he’s so down to earth and respectful. His reading to find the essence of a given piece and his way of communicating complex ideas and suggestions in an easy to understand manner was inspiring and revelatory."

"WOW, is Andrew a great teacher! He is so knowledgeable, articulate, thoughtful, and generous! I learned a ton and really enjoyed exploring the short fiction form with him."

"Andrew is a fantastic teacher in so many ways that I cannot enumerate them all. First of all, his broad knowledge of all things written in literature was fulfilling. I am a Berkeley graduate with a degree in English and I felt that his teaching was much better than the writing classes I took at UC Berkeley. Because of his helpful comments on my story, I think this was the reason I got published, first time, in the forthcoming issue of Pank."
