hard nose

"Kramer, a muscular, thick-bodied senior, is known for his tenacious and sometimes physical defense. Painter (his coach) who preaches the value of gritty defense, said he fell in love with Kramer when he saw him play in high school. "He was always a hardnosed player that could really defend," Painter said.

James is not a hard nose but it’s worthy to take his class. His teching method is so effective and focus on giving students to have enough conversation chances.

The professor of 'an Introduction of Chinese' is kind of hard nose. She never let off being late to class and homework.

It's hard to get a good grade from a professor who has hard nose but you can learn a lot from him.

I can enjoy a hard nose person. But, I can't accept a hard nose professor. It's too hard to communicate.

One trait that real estate agent should acquire is being a hard nose. There is no way of getting impressed to a multi-tasking person.
