Don't blame the teacher for your unwillingness to work! His class will not be a free pass, but youll learn more than in any other & will appreciate it later. Students exaggerate. I never had a problem

Had this guy 3 years ago. He marks fairly hard but is nice. He tries to explain what he wants. It is important to have a teacher like him because you learn to work hard. Just know how to write well...

If you're thinking about taking his course as a complementary, consider this: you can take a much easier course. Mark's tough (only 3 of us passed the final essays). Take Guitar, improve your grades.

Whoever said that those who gave Marc a bad rating are lazy students is ridiculous. But you're right that half of Dawson teachers can't be compared to him. Mark is quite special in the fact that he's the most arrogant, condescending, disrespectful and irrational teacher I've ever had. I had to see the ombudsman about him and I was far from being the first. It's good to prepare us for university but he was so rude that it made class really unpleasant and uncomfortable.

I did't like this teacher at all even if I got a really good grade in his class. He's not approachable, and even if you work hard that's never good enough for him.
