Very hard marker. I'm a 90+ student in french but I end up with a grade of 86 in her class.
Very sweet and kind teacher. If you do the online homework on time and study a little you should be fine.
I learned more in her French class than all of my French classes in elementary and high school. She's an understanding teacher and cares about students succeeding. The oral at end of term is tricky because you aren't allowed to watch others present until the day of your presentation so you're going in blind. Heavy emphasis on orals in CLEO, not good for people who are shy about talking loudly to themselves in a crowded room.
Great teacher, she's nice and knows well her stuff!! Clear in correction and always organized.
AVOID AT ALL COST PLEASE
Just don't. Please.
She is boring as f*ck. The book was almost as boring. Very strict and a hard marker. Too many criteria for a composition and gave low grades. The only good thing is that we sometimes mark our own quizzes (but she checks them)
AVOID AT ALL COST! Do yourself a favor and drop that course, she is hitler.
I had her for the Kessel 103 class. She is very passionate about the topic and is one of the most organized teachers I've ever had. However, she is a hard marker and often does not allow for differences in formulation or in opinion. That being said, if you show enthusiasm and willingness to do stuff her way, you will do well. Moreover, she constantly asks for feedback and it actually makes a difference. I would take her again.
Do yourself a favor and don't take her. She's the hardest marker ever and she's so stubborn.
Took her for 103 Kessel course as well, but our standard deviation is of ~10%. Her exams are pretty reasonable. She's nice with everyone and lord, is she the most organized person in the world, too. Prepare yourself to huge amount of papers to print, too. It's not hard to pass, but you have to work. Fair marker, too!
Avoid if you can. I took her 103 Kessel class and despite the fact that the course material was actually interesting, she will make you want to kill yourself. She isn't boring or anything so that's not an issue. The problem is that she is a hard marker and she is very closed-minded; only her answers are the right ones. If you get her, it's not the end of the world, but I will definitely not take her again as I was a 90's student in high school and I dropped to a 77. Standard dev. was 15%. Avoid.
She is super organized but i didn't like at all her teaching methods. She just reads from her PowerPoint and she is a super hard grader. For the essay we were not prepared at all. I got a good grade but had to put a lot of effort in this class. Take another teacher if you can.
she can be a good teacher but if she initially doesn't like you she definitely shows it. i never had a problem with her, but i noticed that she had a problem with some of my classmates and she was not discrete about it. she would single them out and make unnecessary comments towards them. i ended up passing the class so i dont have any complaints but im not so sure about those students... she has favorites and shes not afraid to show it. shes organized though, so thats good i guess
Get her to like you and she'll give you good marks. She has a tendency to treat her students like they're children despite the fact that we're college students.
Took French (block B) with her. Very knowledgeable teacher, nice and helpful. However, her tests were not as clear because some answers may be formulated differently, but she expects them to be exactly as she decided to.
Good teacher. Easy marker if YOU KNOW YOUR STUFF. Read the assigned chapters and pay attention in class. She likes pop quizzes, so make sure you read the readings before class. Tests are fair.
strict teacher but she is very fun, had her in Soc. alot of in-class work worth 40% hard grader for exams 20% so you must attend her class all the time so you can get the 40% atleast
Positif: Prof trÃ¨s dÃ©vouÃ©e, organisÃ©e (quasiment Ã la minute prÃ¨s!) et souriante NÃ©gatif: exigeante, TRES pointilleuse, Ã©norme quantitÃ© de travail (au moins 2hr/sem), cours ennuyeux ...
HSD class is decent but not very interesting or fun. Organized and a very fair grader, but her lecture tests are challenging and shes a picky marker at times. Take her if youre already good in French.
Definitely the greatest french teacher at Vanier. Very organized, serious, patient and sweet. Sure, she seems bit strict, but she makes you learn a lot. Recommended!!!
Boring class ! To avoid and I am a serious science student
Reallyy boring class!!! but not that hard to pass, just do the reading and the homeworks which are not a lot... And she takes attendance evrytime!!
To Avoid. Had her Fall 2009! she's not easy. She likes to dig up your errors. You'd be suprised how you can loose marks. my mark was in the 70`s but im usually an 80`s student in french so u kno ...
Amazing teacher one of those who are meant to teach very helpful and understanding somewhat strict but really cool teacher she makes the course she teaches fun
Fantastic teacher who knows what she is doing and is one of those teacher that should be a teacher very nice and understanding of things and helps with your essays which can help
She explains very clearly, repeats herself alot which i consider a good thing.She does not accepts late assignments, and does not do any exeptions.Take notes it will be usefull for tests and essays.
She might be one of the best teachers in vanier, realy not hard marker, she trys to help you and the class isen't boring!
avoidher the ebst you can her classes r totally boring i spent most sleeping and shes never happy with wut u do.. shell NEVER give u 100% she always finds that little thg to complain about
Amazing teacher! She is really helpful and very sweet. RM with her was a blast! Very specific about the work, but you learn to do it the right way! One of the best teachers and great person too. =]
I am a studious person but this teacher is IMPOSSIBLE. She is an incredibly HARD MARKER, boring, dull, conceited and RIGID. Class average is: 70 something...! DON'T TAKE HER! TRUST ME PLZ!
She's the best French teacher ever! She's extremely helpful and caring. As long as you participate and go to her classes you'll be on her good side.
absolutely love her! had her for RM, she was clear about what she wanted and she told us how to do everything in detail. super patient and kind. i wish she teached IP, by far one of my fav teachers!
Very good teacher but not a very good marker. Society and technology was the course i had her with. Lots of reading and she marks you based on a lot of things. Very uptodate in technology sends email
Amazing teacher, she does say umkayy! a little too much! She's super nice, and makes the class fun.
LISTEN IN CLASS MAKE SURE U FOLLOW WHAT EVER TOPIC YOU DISCUSS IN CLASS, MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND YOUR ASSIGNEMENTS, BECAUSE IS BASIICALLY WHATS IN THE EXAMS IF U UNDERSTAND IT ALL 90+ IS EASY
I find her amazing she is a great teacher. So, I'm trying to get her class again.
She is the best teacher ever.....Her sociology class was super interesting!!!!
She is very punctual and takes too much details into consideration. She just wanted everything to be done her way and does not accept any VALID excuses.
She is always on time and has alot to teach you but if you are not on her good side she finds stupid reasons to hack marks off you papers and tests. I wouldn't take her again
I had her for technology and society and it was the best class i took this semester! she is the best teacher and is also very understanding! its also funny when she finishes her sentences with mmmmkay
Larocque is so meticulate and punctual, every detail is important for her. Keep this in mind and you will do fine. Otherwise she is friendly and approachable.
She is a very good teacher, when you're in class it's impossible not to listen to her because the way that she teaches us is very interesting and clear. Be honored to take her. She is exceptional.
amazing teacher! had her for RM and found her to be very intelligent, organized and clear. In class work is helpful to boost your average, always replies to emails and answers all questions. take her!
Super picky! If your work isn't exactly the format that she wants, you get a ZERO. Very intelligent woman; her voice is a bit annoying, but she isn't THAT bad if you're interested in her class.
Very good teacher Very Helpfull in Sociology knows what shes talking about lectures are abit boring but if you make jokes in the class everything is good
I took her for RM, she isn't the worst teacher but she is extremely picky in what she wants and expects and she is not big on explaining. If you do well in English courses you will probably do well with her. The workload is spread out, but it is still quite heavy. Definately avoid if you are looking for an easy RM course!
If you can take some french homework and reviews every now and then, take this teacher. She likes to joke around and is understanding. PUNCTUATION and ATTENDANCE are "musts"!!!
Shes an awesome teacher! very organized. Her assignments are easy. Test are hard and the mid term essay is too but you can still pull your way through. Not big on notes. I recommend her 100%
Kinda interesting teacher. If you are have good attendance and interest in her course you will enjoy her classes. Very organized and she replies to your emails promptly. Knows her stuff. Take her!!
She's simply amazing!!! Very nice, never screams, respects you, always answers your e-mails, actually helps you, is always there in her office, you name it. Easy quizzes, easy marking! Recommended!
LOVE HER !! she is great .she gives quik assigment to do at homewich can save ur semester. She's feun and easy to understand .buy the book she uses it !!
veryy goood and verry easyy teacherr..if you go to class do your online quizzes there is no reason why you should not get over 80..her class is commun sence!!..highly recomended!!
She is a very good and nice teacher. Tests were not that hard, but you just need to be prepared. She is funny and can make boring things fun and easier. Be awake for her 8:30 classes, lots of info.
I got a 95% in her skills course. She's one of the few teachers that still wave to me in the hall after the semester finishes... and that was 4 semesters ago. Very nice and caring person.
Good teacher, who can actually teach French (its rare!). Moderately hard marker, but if you show "effort" you'll probably pass.
She's a great teacher - she make the material easy to understand, and her exams are fair. People who complain are those don,t come to class . TAKE HER!!
I am an 85+ student but Mrs. Laroque made it extremely difficult for me to learn anything. There is favortism in her class. Even if you do all the work well, she will still fail you. Don't take her.
Sweetest teacher ever! Very nice, friendly and helpful. A lot of homework, but its free marks!
A verry nice french teacher , jsut ask her often about ur actual grades during the semester and she'll know you want to pass the course but u need to work ,she is verry fair but her (lecture) tests are quite hard . but overalI i had a great experience with her, because most of the french teacher are so rude shes not like that, she makes everything clear and easy. If u want a nice teacher in french then take her..
Lyne Marie is a GREAT teacher! I had her two semester in a row and i got 90 in her class. She makes class intersting and gives helpfull notes. She likes to do activities with her classes and her tests are easy to pass if u go to class. I would defenetly recomend her to everyone!
whn she gives u guidlines to essays read the whole thing because she is very picky about little details and she will subtact points. dosen't check the hmwrk though so don't bother.just prepare for essays and study for your tests and you'll be fne.she substracts 1% 4 a missed clas and 0.5% if your late or u leave in the middle. shes polite but kind of scary, like shes nice when she's addressing the class but in private she puts up this front you know, it's weird... not the best. u can do better.
This teacher's amazing. REALLY EASY MARKER!! Just show her that you care about your marks... you could miss even more than a few classes, around the end of the semester she stops caring so much anyway. I got a 95% in her skills course... boring most of the time & useless.. but who cares.. i got a 95%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had her for skills 21st century first semester and I still think about her! Even though the course was useless and boring, she didn't make it seem that way. She was very interesting and friendly+easy marker(doesn't like skipping!). She expects a student what he/she is supposed to be doing= WORKING HARD. Take her for any kind of course. You won't regret it.
Great teacher. demanding but you learn lots. take her!
Her Skills for the 21st Century class is very easy. Do all her journals and in-class assignments and you are garunteed a high mark. She can be very pushy at times and she does not tolerate lates, but overall a good teacher.
too much work but overall not too bad. You'll definitely pass if u show up to class.
I will not lie, she dedcuts a lot of points for insignificant reasons, but she is a easy marker and very nice person. Her class can be boring though...
what are u talking about? she's great. had her for 2 class and i just love her.
I HATED HER CLASS, VERY BORING, HARD MARKER AND MOODY! DON'T TAKE HER!
take her!! this woman is SOOOOOO organized!! u always know what u will be doing the next class. Her tests and quizzes arent that bad in her traduction class. Be carefull in not making any grammar and spelling mistakes in tests because they are costly.
VERY VERY VERY GOOD TEACHER, I like sociology because of her. I took 2 course with her and I had 88 and 90 %. Her tests are easy and the notes are helpful.
this teacher is the reason why i got into sociology...simply the best
She not the worst at Vanier but she is not the best.
Had her for skills 21st century. Amazing teacher. She's so nice and interesting. A bit strict but caring. She wants her students to do good. TAKE HER
The class was easy and clear. Compositions and vocabulary tests were kinda tough but if you study well, you'll pass easily.
she is a good teacher but she confuses even the most organized people but overall she is good :D
very demanding and perfectionist...watch out she may just be too hard of a marker!
Very good teacher.very organized and clear and helpful.easy class,not hard.it was an easy and fun class.
Moderate....study for her vocabulary tests and know how to write in french. Good teacher all in all.
seems strict at first, but ends up being alright. easy tests, just look over notes & study the book. doesn't take attendance
she'a a nice teacher who tries her best to make her classes interesting
Very kind hearted. The kind of teacher that really wants you to learn, very organised also she really is a sweetheart.
she's always in a good mood so makes the class pass faster but she gives a lot of work and marks kinda hard.
If ur good in french take her...really stric, but still fair...kinda LOT of work, really boring..but i had excellent grades so...i won't complain!
you'll be left speachless by the amount of work she gives
I really liked this teacher. She prepares you for everything and she teaches well.
one of the best teachers i've had.has a way of getting students attention and she will ask you a million times if you understand the content.study and listen
