She provides you with all the material needed to understand the course content (problem sets, old tests, old finals). She is a VERY picky marker and will take off marks because she doesn't like the way you wrote something, etc. even if your answer is right. Her labs are easy and boost your marks from tests. For Organic 2, she's the only teacher so the final is the same as tests so you're prepared. She is easily distracted in class and her notes are all over the place unorganized.

She was unable to control the class at all. Everyone was always talking and she was always lost in her notes. She goes so slow because English isn't her first language and she hand writes just about everything she says on the board. It's really messy and super confusing. I stopped going to her class halfway through and just read the textbook and still did really well. Mind you it's only NYA. Her labs are easy and she doesn't make you write a full ab report.

Has trouble controlling the class and gets frustrated. More helpful during office hours. Her notes on the board started off good at the beginning of the semester but were very unorganized and confusing to follow towards the end. Make sure you do the handouts and recommended textbook questions before tests. Tests are pretty hard but you can make up for it in the labs which she marks easily. She also doesn't make you do full lab reports and you only have 3 long ones throughout the semester.

Nice woman, but her lectures are hard to follow. She gets easily distracted and doesn't like it when you talk in class. Her handouts are very helpful and she writes good notes on the board for the class. Tests are hard if you don't understand the material. Labs are extremely easy and you don't have to do full lab reports.

She is a nice woman but also very confusing. She has a thick french accent and forgets some words in English wich confuses everyone. If she doesn't like you, you will know. She holds a grudge and refuses to teach properly from the moment someone pisses her off. Her labs are extremely easy and she simplifies the workload. Her quizzes make you expect the exams to be easy, but they are a bit trickier. She will help you as best as she can and she is generous in her grading. Overall a good teacher!

She probably is very smart but I get lost in her class so quick. There's so much information given out of nowhere and it is quite hard to understand her. She corrects fairly and her labs are easy peasy, but she just can't teach. I had to always study from the manual and I was not prepared for the final. Basically, she's a boring teacher who rushes a lot and can't teach that well.

She is a pretty good teacher, although if you have issues understanding easily in class, good luck.... She is pretty unclear and has troubles explaining.
As for labs, she knows her stuff, she helps with reports and makes it very easy.

Always in a hurry to leave the classroom instead of wanting to finish the hour and fifteen minute of class time. Rude to students most of the time when they ask questions. Gets distracted by the slightest noise, stops class and complains about very minor distraction, goes on to blaming the class for prolonging class time. Obvious that she does not want to be teaching which rubs off on students. Not recommended

She makes sure that her students understand the material and she want them to pass. Her notes are extremely clear and her tests are definitely fair and reflect what we did in class. So take her and you will do well for Chemistry

Isabelle's ridiculously fair!
Her tests are VERY representative of the material presented in class and in the textbook. Don't miss any of her lectures, (not that she'll hold it against you, penalized you or anything), but you'll miss quite a bit of crucial information

She's very fair. Took her twice last year and never asked anything in the exam that wasn't covered in class. The suggested problems are very good indicator of the difficulty (or should I say, easiness) of the upcoming test.
She definitely knows what she's talking about. Prepares you well for final.

Well, she is bad. Cannot teach. It seems as if she has no knowledge (she probably does, though) because she sucks at explaining things. If you study from her online lecture handouts and from the book and really prepare you will do fine. Bad teacher but you can get a good mark with enough work put in.
