This man is the greatest math teacher in the world. He's the reason I'm killing in in Uni Calculus. Shame on the board for not realising how amazing this teacher is. He's a real gem and I hope he's doing well.

Lorne is a great person but his choice of climate temperature is not something that everyone can agree on as he even has the air con on during the winter months. As for his teaching he has great knowledge and a very helpful teacher. He always puts his student's interests before his own(unless its about temperature). I would highly recommend Lorne Rusnell.

Fabulous teacher and human being. He really enjoys connecting with the students while teaching them in a very effective manner. I wish I had him as a university professor as well. He is a gem that Tempo will be losing.

Well lorne is a man of many talents.scrabble, billiards, and movie taste arent some of them. His ping pong skills( or lack there of) remind me of an injured derick rose. Much like the injured superstar, rusnells broken jumper couldnt heat up if it were placed on a george foreman grill. In terms of teaching though, he is an amazing man and instructor whose structure and knowledge are a luxury in high school. He tells you what is expected and if you put in the work, you succeed.REPETITIVE EG.

Mr. Rusnell is an excellent teacher. He goes above and beyond the curriculum, taking it upon himself to teach important subjects like linear algebra and statistics fully. He is a brilliant explainer, and teaches even the most complex and troublesome topics in an intuitive and understandable way. His exams are fair, and he always provides practice tests for us to use. The knowledge I've gained in his classroom will stay with me forever.

Mr. Rusnell is the ideal teacher for a subject like math. He has a unique ability to simplify things drastically, and always makes sure that every student understands what is going on before moving on. Although I must admit that having math for the last 1:23-hour long class every day for the whole year will probably get a bit tiresome... as we say nowadays, Mr. Rusnell is the "top head". lol
