Considering I had just left foster care to return to my abusive family and moved newly to San Diego, it was really great to hear from Mr. Tuttle that he was "simply to busy with his golf practice," to offer me any additional help in catching up during my transfer. Of course, the fact that he would sit pedantically within the center of the room surrounded by the us in a circle desk formation, boasting incessantly about himself, I consider it no great loss.
He was literally the hardest English teacher I ever had. It was fun freaking him out though...a change from him scaring students I suppose.
This was the hardest English class I have EVER taken, including AP English and college literature courses. I have only ever gotten A's on my English / lit courses after this one.
Very scary to have as a freshman. He is very hard and mean to have in honors english....switch out if you can!
it definitely helps to get on his good side, and he does have one. to all who have his class and dont know what to do: don't let him intimidate you, be confident every day and try to do well, its really not hard to do well
all i remember from his class is how scared i was of him. i only memorized my notes so he wouldn't give me the "look" but he still helped my writing improve... i guess...
Scary, scary guy--especially to have as a freshman. But he's a great teacher, and after you leave his class, you'll see you learned so much. Plus, he's really nice when you visit him the year after you left his class.
Really knows his stuff, but tends to alienate his students.
He may be really abrasive and quick to dismiss, but I still remember those vocab words two years later. It's definetly a great class.
Mr. Tuttle's 9th Grade Honors English class is one that I hated with a passion. I hated him and his class, but now I get good grades in english, and I believe he is the reason why
Tuttle acts smarter than you, with validity, because he probably is. He won't hold your hand or be your ego-booster, he will tell it how it is. A great and demanding english class
Definitely one of the hardest classes I took, but I got so much out of it that has helped me this year as a soph.
This class was really hard. It was much different than the other honors English class. People were really intimidated!
i dont remember anything he taught me! all i remember is him voicing his own unreasonable opinions and intimidating everyone to think the same way
The one-paragraph essay only works in his class (if that). DO NOT USE THIS TECHNIQUE IN COLLEGE!!!! YOU WILL GET AN F ON THE ESSAY!!!!
Well, I just finished the class. I d him, but I kind of realize that he taught us a lot. You have to work soo hard though. He gave me a B *cries* Fun class.
Mr. Tuttle is a really hard teacher and it feels like it is impossible to get an A, but he does teach you a lot that will be helpful in the years to come.
I was in his class more than 10 years ago and at the time, I hated his guts. Now, I realize that he was THE BEST English teacher EVER.
He ALWAYS has to be right, and if you ever prove him wrong well then he gives you a C and kicks you out of his class. He thinks he is gods gift to RBHS
I used to loathe him, but Tuttle was my best English teacher in retrospect. His grammar and writing lessons are invaluable. A great, albiet demanding, teacher.
Mr. Tuttle is HARD, but even though he can be scary sometimes, I learned so much, and he's one of the best teachers at RB...
Wow... such harsh criticism.... well, to tell you the truth, i don't think he was that bad. I learned a lot from him and i didn't think he was that mean
Uneccessarily mean and cruel to his students. Intimidating. He'll stand in front of a student and stare them down if a student doesn't turn in homework.
The worst teacher ever! He never tells you what he wants and then marks you down on essays because he can't see why people who are dying would be upset...grrrrr
he scares me sometimes but i like his thinking process
Mr. Tuttle is very mean. He made me cry and humilated me during my Honors English class. I loathe him and his worthless manner of teaching the curriculum.
..its so sad no 1 likes him.. AND IT EASY to c y.. omgg!! he is soo mean..the work is it impossible bc u hafta guess at wat he wants he neva tells u..grrrr!
