Mr Tovey is an okay science teacher but for math he is very confusing. He marks messily with an illegible number and a huge circle around it right on your answer. on a test i cant see what i did wrong because of it. I feel violated that i try to keep my work neat when i hand it in, but when i get it back i cant even read whats on it with all the red numbers and circles
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.
Good teacher but sometimes does things I cannot explain
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.
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.
Really cool teacher but it was kind of hard to learn in his class. The atmosphere was really distracting.
For the most part, he expected us to just learn with him giving us the material.. It doesn't work like that Tovey, you got to help us and assist us
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!
a lot of notes but he's an awesome teacher.. got a lot into my head although his classes are hard and such. but he's cool =P
