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.

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.

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.

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.
