Am I allowed to rate a teacher 16-18 years after taking his class? If so, Mr. Torre was one of the best teachers I had in high school. While I didn't end up in a math career, I do work in tech and I appreciate how he made difficult concepts much easier to grasp. His classes were fun, challenging, and he respected his students. He helped instill a love of math and logic in an liberal arts nerd, and always held us accountable.

He's a good teacher overall but I'm pretty sure he uses just for men because no man his age has no grey hairs but it might be because he's Italian

He is an awesome teacher. I don't see why the Press Democrat would write that awful column about him just because he made a joke in a test. It's true that a lot of the students at Rancho do drugs, smoke, are in gangs, have tattoos, and aren't academically focused. Nobody at Rancho should be offended who this isn't true about, but those who are offended, need to re-evaluate their lives. I know that I am a good student and person, so the joke doesn't offend me the way it might offend someone else.

Mr. Torre is probably the most challenging teacher I've ever had to deal with; however, if you really dedicate yourself to keeping up with the material and homework assignments, it is possible to do well. On the other hand, his AP material tends to move at an extremely fast pace, so it is often incredibly difficult to stay updated with all the new material. Exams are extremely difficult and his grading is pretty harsh, but you can bring your notebook. Quizzes are good for grade recovery.

He is one of the best teachers I've had. His exams can be quite difficult, but if you actually do the assignments and ask him for help on things it isn't as hard to be successful. He has a great teaching style that is just challenging enough to be interesting but not too overwhelmingly difficult. His tests and quizzes do a great job preparing for the AP test, and not to mention he's just a really cool guy personally.

One of the best teachers I have ever had. Exams are harder than the AP Exams. He knows how to prepare students and makes classes fun. Also has a sick and twisted sense of humor. Will miss Mr. Torre.

He keeps his classes engaged (or lets one or two students sleep if they know the material). Although arrogant, he is arrogant in a good way.

On an awesomeness scale of 1 - 10, with 1 being the worst and 10 being the best, Mr. Torre is definitely a 10. Or maybe a 9, coz I'm just that hard to please.
