Nice guy, but he talks & talks & talks and talks, then goes off on tangents about his personal life, then back on point & talks & talks & talks. As you drift off in lala land like Ferris Beulers Day Off classroom scene, he says "that's important", but you miss what it was because of the talk & talk & talk & tangent & talk & talk. Then, SURPRISE, his fill in the blank test expects that one thing he said was important which you missed in the middle of the talk and talk and talk - Nice man tho :)
Anyone have Cout's notes and tests for his Intro to Anthro-Psych-Sociology course, let me know how to contact you. Willing to pay.
He's definitely more passionate about history than geography; geography can be a bore. He's also a hard marker.
he's definitely knows what he's talking about so it makes it a lot easier for him to be able to explain it to us in different ways (to make sure we get it) he can be strict at times but if you respect him and just generally pay attention you should be fine. He also has a lot f really bad jokes and puns that always keep class interesting
He talks ALOT. if you dont understand what he just said of didn't hear it, to bad. He marks well, knows his stuff, and he's pretty nice. He rants way to much tho, taking notes in his class is like trying to hop on a moving train. occasionnaly he will say "THIS IS IMPORTANT" and give you tie to write but most of the time he is pretty fast. And im not going to lie, a little boring. Lots of movies are watched in class, like every other day. but he is nice.
-Never goes over anything again
If you respect him, he will respect you. He is passionate about history and cares about the students. He does not tolerate laziness, rudeness or tardiness, so be respectful and try hard!
Excellent teacher. Arguably one of the best high school teachers I ever had. Appreciate that he teaches mostly verbally - this is how university profs do it with the occasional visual aid.
No doubt he knows his stuff, and is a rather nice teacher. He has reasonable expectations, but what looses points with me is that he always teaches lessons verbally, and rarely uses the chalkboard. For me, a visual learner, this made me struggle in class.
I didn't feel like I did much in geography, but somehow, I managed to learn a lot, so... He gives really easy assignments and tests, but sometimes, he has really weird expectations.
he's moody and he's never clear when he makes an assignment. he's chill enough to make jokes but he just rambles too much so students don't know how to take proper notes. also he doesn't like when students ask questions so it's hard for them to clarify stuff. and he has weird expectations. i'll admit he REALLY knows his material especially for history, but his teaching style makes it difficult for students.
If he doesn't like you - you're done.
He isn't very nice if he doesn't like you, makes fun of you in the class and picks favorites easily. He talks about things for days at a time and it doesn't go on the test and things he barely mentions goes on the test. He does not provide any encouragement.
His jokes are funny but his ego is to high.
Jean Couturier is an excellent teacher. Patient with high level of expectation which can be a good thing when you get it or a bad thing when you are slow. Could work on tolerance when someone did not get the right answers correctly right away because every student learn at different speed.
Mr couturier is not that bad. He has a thick accent though so its like he talks and u dont really undrstand that well but besides that hes good its funny when he attempts to make jokes!!;)
He is passionate about what he is teaching, gets moody and snaps but knows his stuff. He is kinda annoying but does care.
Talks about something for 3 days and says its really important and then it doesn't go on the test, and something that is barely mentioned is the most important thing on the test
He's okay, but he picks favourites, and if he doesn't like you... you're done. He needs to tone his ego down a couple notches.
I didn't like him much in grade 9, but really enjoyed the way he taught gr 10 history. And he hosts the game club. He marks hard but I dont think he picks favourites
Closed minded, doesn't know his stuff, an too egotistic. Very hard to make organized notes with him, he just rambles on. But as a person he's allright and kinda funny.
K this past year I really wasn't looking forward to having Mr. Couturier AGAIN but I was pleasantly surprised...maybe 2006 was a bad year for him lol.
k, i went to greenbank and OMG m. couturier is sooo much like m. o'brien! well anyways, i never had monsieur couturier and i never saw him (except in pics) so i don't know if he's good or not.
Loves getting off topic, yet you still manage to learn a lot. Hilarious guy... Just don't go trying to whine for more marks on tests...
If he doesn't like you, you're done for in his class. No matter what you do, he will mark you lower. I enjoyed the study class before a test, but it wasn't worth staying in his class another second.
My favorite teacher, had him for four years in a row.
He's a hard marker, but he's hilarious. My history class has 10 people and it's fun.
He understands that if u're had a bad day and end up crying in his class,it not his business to ask "what's wrong?".He just hands u the kleenex, and continues.
i have him for history....he's not bad, gets off topic, and tals way too fast in french so no one understands, writing bid words on the board is not visual!!
An overall nice teacher, very approachable and kind to students, most of the time. Needs to talk less and use more visuals & CLOSE THE WINDOW WHEN COLD!!!
He has got to be the easiest teacher to get off topic... jsut ask him about his childhood or his children and the stories are hilarious.... schnapans!!!
