He is very hard to stay with, he takes very long pauses in sentences for no reason and can start writing something on the board and not finish and just forgets about it. You have to be attentive 100% of the time in his class or else you will get a horrible grade on the exam and you can not get that knowledge back. Overall, I do not recommend him.

Always available to help you. He CORRECTS your essays and papers when you go see him during the english workshop hours. Many people want to change teacher when they get him. Bad idea, folks. If you "copy/paste" what he says during class + go to the workshops if your english isn't that good you'll certainly get 80%+. The only thing I hated about him was his monotone :( But overall, very good teacher! He's funny when you actually listen to him :)

My Shakespeare's Tragedies class (2001) was boring because of his tone but the things he talked about were very interesting. But it was hard to focus on what he was saying because he was not very expressive. His exams were very hard but you could get good grades for your papers, he wasn't too harsh with those.

He has a lot of knowledge, it is interesting. I'm in his ICE workshop, and even it is boring, it helped me a lot with my verb tenses.

A teacher who knows his stuff... maybe too much; there is too much to remember! Low tone boring voice: you lose attention and miss important pieces of information. To pass his course, you absolutely gotta be in language program. Too hard for others!

He knows his subject, he is overqualified, but you can't understand a freaking word of what he says. He has a very low voice (tone), just like tenor singers, you fall asleep often in his class and you can't understand his point when he talks about grammar (even in the first row), for this part of the class, you better try to understand by yourself. His exams are over too long and you have to be well prepared You have to write a 2000 words essay at the end of semester, an analysis of a story.

This is the most 50's kind of teacher I ever had. First, his classes are freaking hard. Second, you must be francophone to be favorite. Third, you cannot think on yourself just do what he says. Finally, he is weird. But good he knows his stuffs. If you like knowing by heart every darn thing that he says go ahead. Definitely not for me. The only thing that bugged me was that he always thought I was anglophone. He is supposed to be the anglophone one.

Although the exams are very hard, I think he grades papers fairly and he has a lot to teach. I took his Shakespeare's Tragedies class back in 2001 and I really liked it because I learned a lot.

Mixed feelings here. He's a nice person. A strange quality he possesses is closing his eyes every time he explains something. He explains quite clearly too. However, his semester 1 class is so boring (almost puts me to sleep) but his semester 3 class is slightly more interesting. He just talks for 2 hours and you take notes in class, ugh. However, he's like a god-send for a good cote R, cause his reading tests are outrageously difficult, asking specific details from a reading.

Like the others said, do what he asks and you will get good grades. He give very tricky exams so be prepared to work hard before (if there is a book to read, make sure you have read it at least twice!

Really hard, but easy to follow. If you do what he asks and do not improvise, then you'll have a good note. However, be prepared to work. Don't start your projects too late.Do what he wants!Go see him
