Had him for French and Spanish, two years running, wasn't the greatest teacher but very approachable, likeable and had time for you, if you wanted to put the effort in, he was there to help, but it was all up to you. There was no push from the beginning
Great teacher at the start (1995) then after a decade of pressure from above and less (able) students applying for Languages, lose is faith in what he is doing. However, he will produce in 2008 one of the 5 top GCSE Spanish student in UK! but at the Tech where he taught night classes where adults want to learn. Was made redundant in 2010 and started his successful photographic business. Does not m
Had Mr Tornero for Spanish GCSE, spent most of the time watching bull fights and eating weird food........was it any wonder 64% of the class failed?? Other than that a really genuine, nice guy!
He's excellent!! Always made me laugh, kept mixing me and my sister up. I was only taught in 2nd year by him and he always had time for a talk :D got me into photography as well! I'm now in tech doing an Alevel in it! Gonna make a visit and show him how well I've done in it so far!
Well how will I start! First of all although he speaks french he cannot teach it! What we have been doing lately is watching french movies in english subtitles. Hello! the reason I did well in my orals is beacuse I taught myself french of the internet!!! However he is a laugh sometimes!!
i was in Mr tornero's first form class when he joined GHS and he was a laugh, we didnt do life skills or watever that wsa once, we just ate french bread and nutella
