Had him for Macroeconomics, he explains really well the lesson and will repeat himself if you don't understand. He likes to complain about Quebec but it's actually funny sometimes. He doesn't like lateness, he will call you out if you are late. The assignments are really easy, everything can be found in the textbook and you are allowed partners. The exams are a bit long but he gives you a list of exactly what you need to study. Recommend, seriously.

I disagree with a lot of the bad reviews for this teacher. I had him for Macro. He really cares and he's helpful when you need help. Some people don't like him b/c he's a little intimidating but some people need some backbone. The tests are kinda long but that's b/c he tells you EXACTLY what's on the tests. Actually in every tests there were similar assignment questions that were on the tests so make sure to do well on those. Don't be afraid! actually the class average was in the high 70s.

I don't know what people are talking about! We had him for QM honours and he treated us very well. He would always provide full information with examples. Yes, he is a bit crazy and too much expressive, but he will give you a lot of useful knowledge avd everything in order to pass the course with an excellent grade. However, be ready to work hard and do not bother him with silly questions or comments because he will let you know that he hates it.

If you can deal with his teaching method you'll love him. He likes to slam desks when you give him the wrong answer for "shock therapy" or something like that but it's all an act, outside of class he's pretty calm, just sarcastic. He hates when you sleep, come in late, or eat in his class so steer clear of that. The tests are exactly like the assignments. CHOOSE WISELY for your groups for the assignments though, because they count for a lot! His notes are also pretty clear.

He was single-handedly the worst teacher I've ever had at Vanier. He made simple economic notions profoundly complicated. I had no qualms with economics before meeting him and now I can't stand it. Do not take him if you value your average. He grades terribly and arbitrarily, every question is all or nothing and the slightest mishap gives you 0. About a third of the class passed in my year (I finished with an 80 but I am an honour roll student). So let him rot.

great explanations, overall good teacher. exams are very similar to assignments. HATES when students walk in even just minutes late, sometimes doesn't even let them in. He is a very hard grader, and sometimes a little intimidating (can make you feel dumb in front of the class) but i guess overall he's okay. P.S. he's very blunt...

He knows his stuff very well, but he went off topic a lot. Macro's a very difficult class and you cannot miss a class or else you're behind. He was quite strict and can be rude and was careless about his students. the class average was pretty low when I had him, it was around a 60 something.

His test are exactly like his assignments and everything you learn in class is in his tests; no surprise material. He may seem mean and grouchy but he's a good teacher!

This guy's explanations are so clear, it's nuts. He dumbs everything down so that you understand on the first shot. Great teacher. Bit of a picky grader, but still pretty fair. He seems a little rough around the edges (doesn't laugh too much and is very sarcastic), but his ideas and point of views are dead on. I personally loved his class and would definitely take him as a teacher again.

Good points: Very knowlegeable, hilarious, spontaneous, organized and does offer his help. He locks the door once class starts to train students to come on time.
Bad points: A little bit rude, sarcastic (this can be funny, it depends on your humor), rants (funny), and is unfriendly Finally, he judges you when you go in for help outside of class. He may yell and judge your education and this may make you feel uncomfortable.
An example of him: Search a video of Kevin O'leary.
