Was reading over some comments, wasn't planning on writing my own but I had to. Have a feeling most of the people who were writing comments only had him for the JC. Yes he does shout at you when you're in the younger years but that's understandable, I remember in my class there was some tools that would annoy the entire class and needed to be shouted at! As for his political views, if you can't understand that not everyone has the same view as you then don't do history. My favourtite teacher.
Great teacher. Work in his class and he'll work with you. A portable encyclopedia, funny in class too. Does what he can to get you your grade. One of the best teachers in school.
An appalling teacher, little or no ability to reach out to most pupils. Seems to be uninterested at the best of times.
Stephen is one if not the best teacher i and many of my schoolmates had. However it might not be until you leave school that you realisse this!.
Not a good teacher. He spends 40 minutes trying to be funny and then gets angry when we don't learn anythings. He obsesses on WW2 and we didn't complete the coursework in time for JC Mocks.
Seriously I don't need this guy. He doesn't teach, he lectures for 45 minutes expecting us to hang onto every last word. Copy from the book and you'll be fine. Don't expect anything from this guy.
Awesome notes nd a good teacher but spends to much time on ww2
one of the great teachers.realy knew his stuff and made it intresting.extremely influencial in my life
knows his stuffbut cant teach it. hes more interested in being funny which hes not very successful at. has gr8 note though
great teacher but fails to give an objective view of the workplace.everthing is from his extreame right wing point of view
great teacher but sir will you ever give cival servents a break.they actually work extreamly hard
you can tell how good a teacher is if he doesnt need to use the book tonge knows it off by heart and has written a few brilliant teacher can catch him off on a tangent wit red herring questions tho
what a man,,,great teacher,, sound,,knows the stuff inside out and all...
Very good History teacher. Reall helped with the LC back in 03 with his notes. Excellent. Loves to play with his hair! Agree that extra information made infostick.
top man - thought 3 of us history outside hours in 1992 because not enough interest. really into his subject. loves himself though!
Legend! even if he does reuse the same old jokes over and over again
Tonge is de man!!!he really inspired me 2 wrk hard in de mox nd de jc.Bt seriously sir,pik on southsiders 4 once!!
one of the soundest lads you'll ever meet. great teaching history but above all, had the best sense of humour in the school. cheers steve
Proud of being a very ordinary guy with working class background. Nice one, Sir !
Proud of his working-class Dublin background. Has achieved a lot, spoils it by being insecure and unnecessarily boastful.
Had him for Bus Org, turned out to be History! Nah, good coach, decent teacher. Could have done a lot worse in the CUS for a teacher.
great teacher and he has a passion for what he teaches.
The greatest teacher i have ever had! this man is a legend, passionate about history, entertaining. tells you exactly what you have to do to do well. Lebend
his classes are pure comedy but thats from the teachers point of view.
great teacher even though i get a lot of stick of him. oh and he secretly lives on the northside and went to mountjoy for joyridin wen he was younger.
Liked practicing his cricket stroke before class.I loved his classes.His extra info to tell the grandchildren made the classes interesting!
Great History teacher. Its a pity he was so interested in subject and wasted time goin off on tangents.
g8t teacher.always brought subject2life.is d reason i did well in history.shouted a bit much,oh,&i wudnt roar his 1st name in street-he doesnt like that!
I have Stonge as a history teacher at the moment, makes the subject interesting with his added humour. The man's a legend.
Challenging and funny- the reason i did so well in history. the extra information brought the subject to life
He is the man.Was my classhead for a couple of years and he ws always firm but very very fair.I liked his history classes as well, he had funny little stories
I love this man so much. I wish he would marry me. Eoghan Sheedy
absolutly brilliant history teacher i always loved the way he had little extra funny stories which werent in the text made history fun
Wow, if I had a euro for every minute of his classes we spent on anything but history! Great teacher, made you aspire to achieve, encouraging, tolerant and fun.
Best History teacher going. Makes you actually like the subject!
