DO. NOT. TAKE. HER. She is a terrible teacher!!!!!! I had her for Western Civ. She takes attendance at the beginning of class and will put you absent even if you're minutes late. She gives too many homework that won't help in the exam. Her exams and paper instructions were not clear and the grading was total nonsense. Her class is boring and she doesn't allow computers nor electronics. If you care about your r score, avoid her !!!!!

Avoid at all costs. She will make you work twice as hard as you would in any other class. Very picky. While correcting work, she wants perfection and nothing else. She grades her own examples and guidelines around 70. You have to be very specific, there is no margin to make comparisons or think globally. I am a good student, attended every class, did all the work, but still would never take her again.

Graduating student - Viviane is by far the worst teacher I've encountered in cegep. Nothing personal, but she's simply not suited to be a teacher. Not only does she fail to connect with her students, but her assignment instructions and class lectures are unclear. She's unprofessional, unhelpful, grades arbitrarily, and doesn't offer constructive criticism so that students can learn from their mistakes. She doesn't adhere to college policy by assigning +30% due the last two weeks of the semester

One of the worst teachers ive ever had the dipleasure of having, she has made my experience at vanier an intolerable one. She has a knowledge on her subject but due to her terrible teaching methods, that knowledge is not demonstrated properly to her students. Most of what the students get is her inappropriate classroom humour that has no place in a classroom. As a student who feels like this teacher should not longer be in the school, I do not suggest her to anyone at all.

DO NOT TAKE THIS TEACHER. Unless you are willing to fail, do not take her. Any teacher is better and everyone I know who had her had a class average below 60 (including me I had a class average below 58). I did all my work even the online and still gave me a 0. It doesn't make sense at all. If you have her, drop the class immediately. Anyone saying she's a good teacher is clearly an idiot and wants you to take her so all the other good teachers are available.

Honestly, she's pretty bad. Her dry humour is terrible, as is her attitude towards the students in her class and what she teaches. She explains terribly and throws work at you without explaining it properly beforehand. But don't worry! Because she'll post "examples" of how your work should look like online - which is a joke because she'll make you fail even if you did the work while conforming to how she put it in the example. I rarely rate but she's so bad I had to do it. Avoid at all cost!

Let me just put it this way. If it weren't for her I would've been in HONOURS. You have to take A LOT of notes, her exams are extremely hard for the amount of time you have. She is a hard grader and last but not least she expects you to read the chapters from your book to answer questions online throughout the whole semester and it's worth 15%. AVOID HER AT ALL COSTS SHE WILL RUIN YOUR LIFE AND GRADE AVERAGE

She is single-handedly the worst teacher I have had at vanier. She doesn't explain her topics well, she doesn't give you outlines for your assignments and you'll end up failing them a bunch of times before actually submitting a copy that gets 60%. I have never stressed about failing a class before in my life until I took her. So do yourself a favour and don't take her

BE WARNED. This teacher is by far the worst I've ever had during my education. Her lectures consist of power points that barely have any information on them (Pictures) and its very difficult to understand much of what she says. She assigns exams that she doesn't prepare you for, and waits to the last minute to give instructions (if any) on major assignments. This semester she waited till the last 3 weeks to assign 75% of our grade! Yeah, we didn't do ANYTHING for the whole semester. AVOID!!!

Dont listen the good reviews, since people who give negative reviews are telling the truth. In western civ, she makes the course harder with tricky and hard exams. She grades unfairly, even if u work hard. And some work count too much. When I ask help from her, she wont help me and doesnt care. Her notes are useless for work & exams; i wrote everything she taught and I fail,same for everyone.If u want a good R score and dont wanna waste a semester, dont take her. so u get in university easily.

She is a super friendly teacher! Shows cute videos in class (Western Civ). Exams are super difficult. Class average was 58%. The way she presents subjects to the class makes it interesting, but the exams are crazy! Writing 2 essays, answering short answer questions and true or false with explanations in 1h15m is way too much. Would try to avoid taking her.
