This man is seriously the coolest teacher you could have. I've literally learned so much from him. Listen to him, focus on the readings (he wrote the textbook) and work hard on your scenes, and you will excel in his course. Grade 11 and 12 Drama are GREAT courses he teaches.

Out of all 4 years of drama I had, he is by far the best drama teacher. He is hilarious! He is super kind and funny, and is super friendly to everyone! Honestly, the best teacher I ever had. He is amazing at finding your mistakes in a performance, and is very helpful with his constructive criticism. Even though he marks hard, his sheer awesomeness makes up for it. Sometimes he will get angry, but that is only when the students aren't working as hard as he is working for them. 10/10 best teacher

Mr Tirone is super funny and nice; he keeps a profession yet friendly relationship with students. He is always clear on exactly what he wants to see in an assignment but is a hard marker.

I didn't have him for English but drama. He's awesome!!! Totally recommend. But personally i think he's a hard marker :p I like him so much as a teacher. He's dramatic and fun! He's efficient, flexible and also very helpful when students need help. I enjoy the classes with him.

He tries to involve everyone and doesn't make anyone feel bad or embarrassed. He'll only pick on you if he knows you can take it and it is usually very funny.

Mr. Tirone is my favourite teacher I have ever had. He is an intelligent, caring, and helpful individual. He constantly makes an effort to make the class feel lively and full of energy, which is why I would never be bored in his class. People say he can "snap" or get mad easily, but it's not really true. Unless you're a stuck up student who doesn't care about his class, or if you do not respect him at all, then you shouldn't be worried about anything. He marks hard, and expects a lot(he helps u)

Hands down one of the best teachers at Bayview; helpful, insightful, hilarious and passionate. Always knows how to help and what to say. Ask him how he proposed to his wife! It's the cutest.

Mr. Tirone is very engaging with his drama lessons. He has a very straightforward and simple lesson structure, where he teaches the necessary skills, gives one diagnostic assignment to prepare you for your summative. The only negative feedback I can give is that he should control his temper as well as be more attentive to talent inside each of his students. It was only when I actually cried on stage during a performance that he actually appreciated my acting, which I found slightly degrading.

Tirone teaches me drama (grade 9) and he's amazing! even though he gets annoyed and angry pretty easily, and he's pretty overdramatic, he's still funny, nice (most of the time), and knows his stuff!

Mr Tirone was probably one of Bayview's best English teachers. He knows his stuffs, especially on The Wars. His marking is fair; if you analysed the book properly, you'll get the marks you deserve.
