I love this woman. She truly cares for her students. Her notes are concise. The class examples are tricky but prepare us well for exams. I would take her for any chem class!

Sylvie was a fantastic Organic 1 teacher... but in Organic 2 ( a course that is less linear and more modular) the method was difficult to follow. Nevertheless, she is always available and goes above and beyond to accommodate every type of learner. I definitely suggest her, she will prepare you well. It hard work, but do all the textbook problems and read ahead. You need to work hard, but if you are in science you shouldn't be a slacker anyhow.

I have never met a woman so passionate about Chemistry. She knows her stuff considering that she spent nearly her whole studying the subject. Her tests and quizzes are fair, straight-forward. She often slows the class down so that people understand the content being presented. Her textbook problems and exercises are key to passing the course. Even though some people find her French accent can be bothersome, in the end, she helps everyone because she wants students to succeed.

She's really not such a good teacher. Not very clear, gives questions on her tests solely to trick students and make sure that the class average is too high. She always contradicts herself and she'll often give you misleading answers or directions and swear that she never did. Not worth taking at all.

She is a really great teacher. She is always ready to help and basically devotes all the time possible to her students. I suggest you do the problem that she suggests after each course. She makes sure you are prepared for the tests and is very understanding. All in all, she is a really good teacher

She always says that she wants you to be successful but her teaching is actually pretty bad... I never really understood what she said during class. For the finals, I had to read the textbook in order to actually understand the materials... She's a nice teacher though, she boosts the marks up because she wants you to be successful, but yeah...oh and the class average was really low so she made sure the final exam would be super easy. I would take her again just because I know she'll make me pass

She is a great teacher and she knows her stuff. If you attend her class and try hard, she will pass you. She doesn't give marks until the end of the semester. She is always available to help you. She may seem cold but she really isn't. Loved her!!!

I've never had a teacher that was so knowledgeable about chemistry. She is amazing if you work hard, show up to every class she will pass you for sure. Her notes are so clear, she even color code's. You don<t have be shy about asking questions she'll answer anything.

She is a sadist. Her fav quote "crying is not an option" no doubt because she makes someone cry every semester. And smiles when they do. Her exams are ridiculous. She gives a ton of homework!

I noticed on more than two occasions that she corrected another class's work on our class time and she left us to struggle on our own. She is always in some quebec city meeting and dosen't have any time outside of class time to help her students. And when you ask her a question and she has to explain she starts yelling and getting impatient.
