Mr. Tarquinio was actually my only good teacher at Swanson ever. He inspires your love for the world and makes EVERYTHING interesting!! I am now doing a year abroad in high school because of what I discovered in his world geo class :) The class was pretty simple, except for memorizing all the countries and capitals but hey after that it was fun.

He is possibly my favorite teacher ever. He has been insanely nice for the time I have had him and he is always very very clear! He treats all kids equally and his exams aren't hard. If you are getting him for 8th grade, consider your self lucky!

Mr. Tarquinio is the best teacher I've ever had!!! He's so funny and I know for a fact I am his favorite student! He always makes sure that we understand everything while making sure we are having fun and enjoying the class! He never talks too much and when he does he apologizes The other day I had my phone out and he didn't even get mad we laughed about it. While other teachers would yell at you and take it away! If could have every year that would be the best thing ever!!

There's a good reason he was voted teacher of the year :) One of the best teachers I've ever had, and he really knew everything about the subject.

He is such a great teacher! He will always answer any questions you have and explain everything great. He explains why he does things and only gives up homework and work in general when it has a purpose and not just to fill time. The content tests are kind of hard but he puts up great study tools on blackboard and will help you. My favorite teacher this year, defiently. Be glad if you have him, not that you can go wrong with any of the other World Geo teachers this year(Ms. Joy and Ms. Giese)

Hes an excellent teacher and my favorite, he is rarely strict and when he reprimands students, they usually deserve it. He helped me as much as he could when I was struggling with my SOL's.

Mr.Tarquinio was the best teacher I have had so far. His class was challenging enough to the point that I could feel like I was learning something and interesting enough so I could remain interested and not bored throughout the school year. It was the best class I had at Swanson.

I feel kind of sorry for him. A lot of his students are smarter than he is, so the class is kind of a joke. Sometimes he doesn't even know what he is talking about. No one really respects him. Also he takes forever to explain simple things.

He's a cool teacher who really gets the material across, and makes it so that i and a lot of other people could get an A on his final (which was really hard and had A LOT of stuff).

Mr. Tarquinio is a cool guy...he seems kind of nervous/reserved sometimes, but he likes to talk about himself and his fiancee =) If you're smarter than he is, the class is a total joke but it can be entertaining to debate him. He's pretty informed about current events. Very easy, lots of extra credit if you volunteer for random presentations and stuff. His map quizzes actually require studying (just memorization) and do the study guides because they're exactly like the test.
