I remember going into his class thinking he was a muscly meat-head. After finishing a course with him, I consider him a knowledgeable meat-head.
He is one of the most hilarious, sometimes inappropriate, and knowledgeable teachers I have ever met. Extremely helpful at all times and generous when making deals with students. He is also very kind and caring. He loves his students!
Mr. Turpin is amazing. From the way that he teaches, you can tell that he has passion and extensive knowledge of what he is teaching. His lectures are captivating and you will never ever fall asleep in his class. His class was probably one of the most entertaining classes that I've ever been in. He is an extremely fair marker and if you work hard you will obtain the grade that you desire.
Mr. Turpin is concise in his lectures, can seemingly pull hilarious jokes off sheer whim, and despite his intimidating physical stature, is truly compassionate towards his students. I will always remember Turpin as the person who somehow made Socials Studies interesting, and for his complete and utter disregard of political correctness.
Really good teacher! I absolutely hate socials, but he actually made it fun! He makes fun of people all the time, and it's hilarious. His tests are really easy, and you don't have to do many notes. If you're an outgoing person, this class will be best for you! Wish I had him again next year!
He is the best teacher in the world, NO NOTES he just gives us the notes because he says that he hated doing that in school. You will have an absolute blast in his class because he is the best teacher, he always jokes around and he will make fun of you guys occasionally. Dont sit across from the windows because he says whoever sits there is a Bonehead because apparently every one that sat there before was a Bonehead. HA! He calls that place BONEHEAD ROW. You will love his class. ENJOY!!!
His class is guaranteed to be the most entertaining one of your semester. He is funny. He has definite favorites and ... hated students. He even loves the kids he hates. Learned in his class.
Awesome teacher. We often have very interesting discussions in class, and we learn a lot in the process!
Social Studies was my least favorite subject each year until him. Now i'm looking forward to it. We often have discussions that will not be on any tests; this upsets some people that think that he is
Easy teacher, likes discussions but will generally be more a more engaged teacher if a large part of you class ain't the timid silent type.
if you play rugby, you're basically guaranteed an A (or at least an easy sem). class discussions were hilarious, and yet I actually learned so much. Also a great rugby coach.
He gives you what you put into the class, if you dont care then he won't care about you. If you try hard and do your work he will be one of the greatest teachers you ever had! HE IS AMAZING!
All time best teacher. I would take all his classes if I could. He is a great guy out of the class to and donates tons of time to the rugby teams. <3
He's the best teacher ever! I love him and he's so caring and he's just a great teacher. omg i love him!
A good teacher if you dont like working. Gets off task really easily. Ignorant and arrogant like most of the socials guys.
Took Comp Civ and Soc 11.I was called the "Puerto Rican" along with the ESL exchange kid "Uter", this class is really easy most of the stuff is just read and listen. Test were also easy and humorous!
Ok teacher but tends to lose assignments. Good thing his tests are easy. Disappears for a while with the newspaper during class. Coaches rugby but had to get his strategies from an albanian.
LOL. He was a pretty good teacher but spent most of class making fun of students and trying to recruit rugby players. Jeapordy days were awesome, though. Overall, an okay teacher.
you go in, feel like ur not learning anything, leave, come back, ACE TEST
easy mc tests :D some mc options are clearly unrelated to the course context but related to ppl he picks on in class
not only is he a good teacher, he is also an awesome rugby coach
He's funny! He always comes into my socials 11 classes with Mr LLoyd.
a wonderful teacher. One the my favs. Great guy, easy, fun, and entertaining. Had him for comparative Civilizations 12. Final was easy.
This guy has all the qualities of the best teacher except for the teaching part...u gotta b a geek to get a good mark in his class. hes a harsh marker as well
easy teacher! u'll have a fun time laughing in his class BUT u will come out learning nothing and by the end of finals...u'd think to urself "so...what did i learn in that class?"
threatened to give the guys in his class bad marks if they didnt join rugby. and i dont think he was joking. not cool mr t, not cool
Best teacher out there, you feel like your learning nothing but then it comes to exam time and you ace it.
actually... ive never had him as a teacher. just a coach. and he poked fun at me.
This guy will teach you absolutely nothing. The questions on his quizzes/exams are very unclear and it makes me question whether he actually has a degree. Sad.
