I wrote this sentence:

My professor in many subjects during my studies at Damascus University and my fourth-year-project sponsor.

I don't know if in is correct. Or would it be better to use for? Also, is fourth-year-project's good grammatically ?

  • is the professor "in many subjects" or "in many classes" in his one subject? Did you have him in 10 math classes, or one math class, one history class, and so on. The last question could be replaced with "senior year project" or "senior project"
