Yes, his classes are long and yes, it's not always super interesting but the fact is he would always go over the material that would be on the test the class before so you could literally nap for like 3 weeks straight, take notes during that one review class and get 100% on the tests. Excellent Friday morning class if you show up hungover (just nap and drink your gatorade).

I had him in Working in Canada. He's the worst teacher I have ever had. He doesnt like french people and is a hard marker. Easy to cheat in his tests. Talks for 3 hours non-stop. Can't argue with him

I took hym for Working in Canada, it was twicce a week for 2h. It was a pretty long class, the material is kinda useless. to pass the test you need to listen in class and do your long readings. the research work that he want are relly not clear in his outline. he is actually a nice guy, he is really approchable

He is a very nice teacher, there's no doubt about that.The only thing that I did not really like about his class (Canada: Who needs it?) is that he would go on and on and on and on about the subject, but sometimes about little anecdotes about life or whatever. I mean it's not that bad but its a long class.

Okay so basically... He gives a very good lecture, yeah... but this is only once a week, and then you tend to forget what you learn, he doesn't help with reviewing and the quizes that he gives out aren't very fair because even if you understand things they get too specific and you can easily mess up when you know you understand the issues... he's not a bad teacher but he's not a great teacher either...

This was BY FAR the best teacher I ever had at John Abbott. I took both of his humanities classes, and as it turns out, if you actually listen to his lectures, he is talking about interesting and controversial topics so relative to real life. I learned so much and for the first time in my life was excited to do research and write papers.
