Best English teacher I have ever had, this man is a genius, and has made class super enjoyable and amusing this year. This man has been able to harness to best possible english capabilities out of me that I never thought possible, and has done it in a way that was both extremely enjoyable but both challenging at the same time.
the man the myth the legend. you'll be lucky to have him. absolute gun of a teacher and probably the funniest teacher ever. 11/10
Very helpful and insightful teacher. Amiable and easy to approach.
Not sure I would be friends with him out of the classroom but in it Bob is King. I owe my excellent English grades to him and his teaching style, without which I would not be doing what I am today!
Great teacher overall, takes a while to adapt and understand his teaching methods but once past that you'll find that he comes up with some really good ideas and always encourages you to do your best
His ego's as big as his moustache, but nonetheless is a good teacher once you get used to him.
I studied under Mr. Hillman back in 1989 as an ESL student. He was a good teacher. Made us feel relaxed and was effective in teaching English.
dhead. bully. thinks he's awesome. got really put out when missed out on Year 12 Groupmaster in 93 and took it ot on everyone.....s
Well above most of the english teachers, sentiments regarding below par students are somewhat misguided - there always seemed time for them, if they put any effort in.
The comments which mention that he is someone who only cared for the top 5% of students and could not give a damn for the rest seem quite accurate. He is quite harsh even when he doesn't need to be.
Gents, just to let you know firstly that teachers do access this website. Secondly I have informed Mr. Hillman of these comments and he is very hurt by them!
The comments submitted on 6/13/07 encapsulate my sentiments exactly. Bob only had time for the handle full that made him look good. He spared little to no effort for the others.
Bob only has time for the top 5% who make him look good. If you're not there, he treats you like dirt. His kids are always end up with top grades as he hand picks the best students for his classes.
Mr Hillman is crass and inappropriate; some of the things he would say at year assemblies were embarrassing. He is not nearly as intelligent as he thinks he is, although he is clearly no fool.
the fact that bob writes for the age is a great dissapointment to a fine paper.
Great sense of humour. Knowledgeable and works you hard
