If you challenge this Olympic speedwalker to a race he will leave you cowering in the dust of his wake. Also knows geography and enunciates great.
He knows a lot about the subject but I really don't know how any teacher could make this subject interesting. You just have to hope for the best and pay at least a little bit of attention.
Ninth grade geography is extremely easy with Mr. Tobin as long as you listen and pay attention and do not fall asleep. He is always willing to be a good ear and will always have an intellectual conversation with you, no matter the subject. I just wonder what size he is, considering he is in his fifties yet looks like a five foot tall bean pole. He is incredibly fit and advocates exercise. I'm so glad I had him as a teacher. Thank you Mr. Tobin for everything.
Good guy to talk to, interesting subject, he makes it awful and really should not be a teacher. Saying that, he is really fair and judges his students with little bias. He figured my name out pretty early, but he still didn't know some kids by the end of the year. Very easy, did not pay attention often, blew through the current events, never studied.
Great teacher and a nice guy. You just need to pay attention.
Mr. Tobin has tobinisms like delve and look at the side board and such. He is good as a person but bad as a teacher.
Mr.Tobin's class is the easiest class ever as long as you listen and take simple notes. I don't take notes my self and the tests are common sense (other than statics like numbers). All Mr.Tobin's tests are also multiple choice so they are easy. Mr.Tobin goes over the key points very clearly and repeats what he wants you to know many times in that class. Mr.Tobin's current events tripped me up in this class. C.E.s do not need to be 20 pages, 1 is good enough with 3 pictures and 3 paragraphs.
He's a great guy and a fair teacher but he just uses sooooo many Tobinisms (delve, if the quality is there the quantity will take care of itself, hey gang, steer you away from that current event) that it's hard to take him seriously. He's very funny and down to Earth though.
Great teacher! He talks a bit fast, but if you take the notes you'll definitely get the A.
Love him. Class is interesting and tests are reasonable.
awesome teacher. it can get a bit redundent with the powerpoints/video clips; however, i learn better visually. He teaches the material that will be on the test and you are well prepared for AP Exam
Great notes and good teacher. Teaches directly to the tests. Can't do poorly unless you really do sleep in there. Get on his good side and he'll love you.
well lets see...i sleep every day in his class, can't keep my eyes open, and what he teaches us has NOTHING to do w/ wat's on the test!!! a nice guy, but a BAD teacher!
Ur a kewl guy, but u have to be the most boring teacher, i slept everyday in ur class and still got an A, and thank god....NO MORE CURRENT EVENTS!!!!
Good teacher, always ther for the students. But he does choose favorites a bit, and it would be great if more than 1/3 of the lights are on, it makes me sleepy
i did the walking tour project the weekend before it was due. those are a waste. and the powerpoint all the time- good, but tiring.
Great teacher....hope your not republican....you are...ooooooooops!
Mr. Tbin is AWESOME!!! He was an still is my favorite geography teacher, even though Ill be a JUNIOR next year! luv ya!
Everyday without fail, by the time I left class and got to Algebra, I couldn't keep myself awake. It'd be nice if his lessons and tests went with each other.
TOBIN!!! Great Powerpoints...not! oh well, class was still pretty cool although we learned the same stuff over and over...pretty good teacher overall.
He's the only social studies class I didn't get an A in. He kept on calling me by my brother's name. I feel asleep more than once
Turn all the lights on and it will be easier to stay awake. It's not that you're boring. I will remeber my Oakland walking tour forever!
He's an OK teacher teaching a horrible subject, give em a break.
No more T-charts!!!! Very nice guy, but the power points are boreing. pretty pictures though i guess, if your awake to see them
Nice guy. His tests have way too much random stuff not covered in class but in one sentence of the book. I don't think it justifies the question, but oh well.
Fair enough! I liked your class, but the maps got old...
The guy says the Japanese lecture too much, then lectures every single class.
Another day, another dollar...fifty cents if you're me.
