He is very knowledgeable, however his classes are quite repetitive and boring. He rants for the whole 1 hour and 30 minutes and expects you to take notes the whole class. He delivers so much information at once, you basically have to be extremely fast to jot down all of what he says. He is not a bad teacher, however he could slow down his pace. He also never just states the answer, he always asks students to say it which is annoying.

Extremely left wing. He is very knowledgeable and can back up his opinions. He is quite the revisionist. If you are well informed and is a well-versed thinker and speaker, you will have a blast debating his opinions as he is quite the contrarian. He is everything a history teacher should be - in search of historical truths beyond curriculum bias. Very challenging teacher. I didn't agree with him and did very well. You just have belief in rational.

had him for Understanding Power
Explains a lot, but doesnt provide you notes/powerpoint. Uses the board but rarely
Must write down what he says
Cool jokes, talks a lot about the political systems and the world around us, gives examples.
Sometimes goes out of subject and we have to remind him where he was before talking about Trump or the elections

I have no idea how he had below 4 stars. Ive taken him twice and he is one of my favourite teachers in mari. He backs up everything he says, so you may not agree with his views but he's right. He is a slightly tough grader with papers but if you do put work (and do research) is an easy 90+. Exams are super easy as he gives a study guide ib advance and you expect zero surprises. Such a nice guy as well. Wait for the Marx doll. If you are interested in politics, you'll love listening to him lectur

Dufour is an extremely knowledgeable professor, but most definitely he is a sweetheart. His international politics class is highly recommended by me. However, his class lectures even though interesting, they have almost nothing to do with his quizzes so read the book for your own good. His final paper is extremely easy and he also expects you to submit it in advance to him so he can make correction for you and modify it how he likes it so you can get a higher grade. He is nice but also lost.

Dufuour is a must take Marianopolis teacher. I had him for international politics, as a complementary class. I'm a science student and the course was very demanding, but overall quite easy. he does NOT grade you on your beliefs, folks. He grades you on your facts and how you interpret them. I disagreed with him in some aspects, and a couple times I realized how uninformed I was. Others, he respected my position because I backed it with facts. Don't be scared of learning, you might be surprised.

Took him for 19th Century Thinkers. I'm an anarchist, he's a Marxist, or at least I think he is, because he doesn't label himself. We agree on a lot of things and disagree on others. I got my best grade ever at Mario in this humanities course.
Note, he is no economist nor philosopher, he's a political scientist and teaches a foreign policy course.
It's a relatively easy course, but do demonstrate genuine interest for the material and don't be shy and be keen on voicing your opinions.

he's honestly my fav teacher at mariano. I had him in international politics, and he's hilarious. Yes he is totally against anything U.S. like, but his facts are accurate and true. He is so funny though, hasn't been a single class i dont laugh. He even forgot to give us a quiz once :) he gave everyone a +1 on the exam cuz he made a mistake. Great teacher, defs taking him next semester.

Wow!! I would not expect a teacher like this at Mario. He is a lunatic. Avoid at all cost. He is an extreme leftist and an extreme racist. He teaches a class to end propaganda when all he does is promote it and share his own. He hates israel and the US, He will fail you if you have anything good to say about Israel.

Definitely an ideologue who does not appreciate uninformed dissent... that being said, I can tell you I rarely agreed with him and voiced my opinion in and outside of class in an informed matter,yet still did very well. Contrary to what others have written, he is very approachable and more than happy to engage you in debate, and to help with your paper. Don't take him if politics isn't your thing, but if you know what you're talking about and can back up your opinions, he'll respect you
