Deslandes is hands down the best teacher at Mari. I have yet to come across a teacher as passionate about teaching as he is. His notes are extremely clear and his midterms are fair. Really cares about his students and actually makes math class bearable. Would highly recommend him, take him if you can!!

I don't know why he doesn't have a 100 percent rating but the best teacher I have ever had. I have always hated math but JF made Cal 1 interesting and clear. He was always in a great mood, always cracking jokes and very passionate about teaching. It was my favourite class, I would be excited for Cal ahaha. 1000000000 percent recommended. I wish he would teach every subject.

I had JF for cal 1 and I specifically worked my schedule around him. He is both passionate and encouraging. He explains something complicated and immediately you will understand it. He takes his time and doesnt rush through the material (which most teachers do). Always available during office hours. Best teacher at marianopolis. Must take.

I took JF for cal 1, and as someone who struggles with math it was the best decision I've ever made. Didn't have him for Cal 2 but saw him in his office hours once a week anyways and he even came in early to help me when I wasn't his student. He's the most caring teacher at the college, hands down.

He's amazing at explaining and writes all his notes on the board clearly. He posts as assignments and class work on Omnivox as well. Very lenient and understanding with deadlines. He genuinely cares about you. His exams are representative of the final so if you do the course pack and his assignments you should gets good mark. Be careful though because he's chill and it's easy to fall behind with him. But take him if you can

BEST TEACHER AT MARIANOPOLIS BY FAAAAR! Had him for linear only (sadly) and i could honestly say that he prepares you very well for tests and finals. He has very clear notes and also explains them very well too. His assignments are very helpful too so make sure you do them. If you have him as an option TAKE HIM WITHOUT DOUBT! 10/10 teacher!

Honestly, I hate maths and any kind of courses that have to do with math. After almost failing Cal 1, I was SCARED to take Cal 2... but Deslandes made that math class my favorite class. (I have no idea how he does this! I hope all math teachers could adopt his teaching methods). Now that I'm in linear, I've discovered that I hate math again and it might just be because other math teachers just cannot keep me awake/explain as clearly as Deslandes can!

Simply the best! Build your schedule around him, and you wont regret it! JF is the best teacher anyone could ever ask for. Because of him, I actually looked forward to calculus. His class is fun and interactive, and all of his lessons are easy to follow. If you ever have trouble, go see him and he will be happy to help. He wont bombard you with long assignments, but instead gives a couple of problems that sum up the lesson. His tests are fair and he prepares you well for the final. A MUST TAKE!

Had him for cal2. Great notes, great class. However, he grades strictly and his exams are pretty tough if you don't practice. He doesn't give much homework and is generous with extensions. Overall, great teacher, but don't take if you're a slacker. Desrocher is a better pick in my opinion because she makes you work.
