His classes may sometimes be confusing, but he spends a lot of time helping kids individually and answering questions with great clarity. People here saying that he doesn't teach are just ignorant people that probably never ask any questions.

Mr. Tovey was a really difficult teacher at the start of the year because he didn't really teach but later on in the year he really helped me (with math) we did a lot of text book questions but also some work sheets. he actually cares about his students and sees their improvements.

Tovey assigns a lot of textbook work instead of actually teaching the class. When he does, it is very confusing, as the other ratings have noted. He is also inconsistent with marking, sometimes he would give select people a bonus mark. He doesn't help elaborate questions on the test or quiz either.

He's knowledgable teacher, but sometimes explains things way too weird that it's confusing. He tells us to read the textbook instead of him teaching the class himself. Sometimes, he assigns a lot of work expecting us to finish by the end of class, but in reality, no one does. In contrast, he is very lenient in grading and will always work with the student if they are having any type of trouble. Mr. Tovey is also funny and makes jokes which is always a joy.

Mr. Tovey is a very racist person. He always speaks In a chinese accent when talking to Chinese people. Mr tovey is extremely poor at explaining things. He did not round my mark up at 85.9% he does not clarify any unclear markings on a test, because he thinks we're cheating when we cannot understand a question that HE wrote

I honestly never really liked Mr. Tovey, cause for a lab someone has written their pre-lab messy and he didn't let them do the lab. As well as how he didn't let me get my textbook I left at my locker and yet he let another student get it without hesitating. And a friend of mine was out in the hall copying notes from a classmate because he was absent and he came right up and took the notes away even though they both had no idea who he was and said that he shouldn't copy anything at all. Not good.

Taught Science 9. Over all good. He's fun but that made me think he didn't mark hard... i was wrong. Came close to failing the class. However, helpful, very easy to understand, and is so knowledgable he skipped grade 10.

Mr. Tovey is an awesome science teacher. I learned a lot from him and I still remember most of it! He gives some strange homework assignments that consume unnecessarily HUGE amounts of time, but it mixes stuff up and I certainly remember the information! He's fun, enthusiastic, and overall a great teacher. Can be a bit strange sometimes but hey, that just make him that much more awesome and can make certain pieces of information more memorable!

By far an easy teacher! All you have to do to get 90% or above is simply listen to his speeches, read over his notes twice and do ALL the homework! Would love to have him again!
