She is not a good teacher. She is not helpful in any way. She is always making us redo our work multiple times because her standards are so high. She is making us do things that are way too high for our level. She is way too strict an she is mean/rude when you ask why you made a mistake.
She is an awful teacher ! DO NOT TAKE THIS TEACHER !!! She is way too demanding, we have to redo our projects, papers and such at least 2-3 tiems and removing points everytime. It is impossible to get a good grade in this class. Forget having 80% and up, the class average is low and everyone hates her for being so stingy about everything.
I'm not even done with the semester and I'm telling you right now DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT TAKE THIS TEACHER. Even if your french this class will be hard, unless she likes than thats another story. She makes you do a project of 4 months in 1 month 1/2. She is very unclear in what she wants. If you are ready to focus your semester in your french class be my guest sur ce BONNE CHANCE !
She's a sweet woman but more often than not her instructions are extremely unclear. She contradicts herself a lot as well, she forgets the instructions she gave previously and then gives a different one. It is hard to keep track of what she wants and she definitely seems to also forget that students have other classes than hers. Expect extremely long assignments with her and she is ruthless with grades. If you forget as much as one detail, she will be severe with your grade.
She does not to comprehend that french is not our only class. She does not comprehend how to treat students in a civilized way and not like a child. I thought she was so sweet when we started but she's actually the devil. She smiles and whispers the whole damn time until she suddenly starts screaming. She makes you redo assignments over and over for the smallest thing and her instructions are incredibly unclear. I love school and I work hard but I've never been this discouraged by a class. AVOID
Really did not enjoy her class. All she does is whisper, I could barely hear a word she said. If the work isn't done exactly the way she wants it then you get a 0. To do well you have to follow her exact guidelines, which most of the time are unclear. She would interrupt people in the middle of their presentations. I also found her to be very condescending.
I feel like the people who give her so much flak in these reviews are just overreacting. She is honestly a great teacher! As long as you do the work in the way that SHE wants it to be, you'll be fine. If you don't, she can feel a bit intimidating, but it's not that bad. Just show up to class, and put in the effort to meet her satisfactions, and you'll impress her. If you're the type that's lazy and wants to just cruise through a class, look elsewhere. Otherwise, I'd def recommend this teacher!
The fist day I was so relieved to see how sweet my french teacher was......until her true colours came out.
Everything has to be done her way or else you get a zero...she make you re-do your work so many times...very stressful class. HOWEVER, I passed with flying colours because she didn't give many evaluations and most of them were to be done at home and if you get on her good side she actually is nice to you
She is extremely nice and easy. She gives you "essays" of 200 words and you work on them in class with friends and the internet. Very easy to do well in this class. She is super nice and will explain anything to you until you understand. I admit you don't learn much however you do improve your writing skills in her 101 class and learn to watch out for mistakes.
You don't learn anything related to french in this class at all - one half of the semester is spent "working" on a team assignment (basically chatting for entire classes) while the other half is spent listening to orals. Didn't have many assignments, and no tests at all. Beware though - she is extremely picky. It doesn't help that her instructions are always very vague, so if you want to do well you MUST go see her during office hours.
The sweetest teach ever, she will help you out so much. you should pass her class no mater what.

She is very demanding, and picky but nice. If you follow her instructions you will do great! The class average was very high and I got an awesome grade too.
She is all about business and if you are not serious, do not take her class. She is great!
Worse teacher you can ever take ! Pretty much the whole class failed. She won't accept anything unless it's perfect and you can redo a project 5 times and it still won't be good enough for her. She th
The course seemed tough at first but it was honestly a breeze. It ended up helping me NOT hate french so much. She's such a kind and helpful teacher, it's hard to dislike her.
Was worried her class was gonna be tough but it was good. Yes, she pretty much marks everything (even is if she says she won't). Just do your work and you'll be fine. Also, she's a rlly nice teacher:)
She makes it seem like the course will be hard but it's pretty easy! Just do your work. She is strict but she is a VERY lovable person. I loved her so much and would take her again if I could!
had her for 2 courses. very sweat and helpful to students who show their interest. gives lots of homework but it's easy to get good marks. don't take her if you wanna slack off. overall great teacher
There is something due every class, and if everything isnt exactly how she wants it she will refuse it. She is nice, but has major mood swings and expects you to learn everything on your own.
She seemed to assign grades to people and continue giving them that grade til the end of the semester. A lot of unncessary work. I would have enjoyed the class more if I hadn't been drowning in it! Often talks to you like you're a child, but has sporadic periods of unprecedented anger. Some advice: if you go see her out of class and talk to her a lot, your grades will reflect it. If you can, try to find someone else.
The work she gives is really challenging, but she's always there to help you. If you show her that you really care about the class, you're guaranteed a passing grade. Helpful during office hours.
Madame Gauthier is a very kind and sweet teacher who enlightens the class with a pedagogy of wisdom, clarity, and critical thinking. The class discussions and texts studied are very interesting.
she's a very nice person, but behind that smile is EVIL. she assigns way too much work due for every single class. she kicks you out for being 5 mins late. honestly, just try and avoid taking her!!
easiest teacher of life... super nice. just get on her good side and yur guaranteed a great mark. and do yur work. overall, good teacher. if you do yur work yur completely fine.
Great teacher. If you work hard and do some efforts, you will get what you deserve.
Extremely nice and caring teacher. Do all the work and make an effort, and you will do really well. She has a low voice, so don't sit in the back! You will not regret taking her course.
Truly amazing teacher. She is caring and understanding and gives lots of work but if u show her that u care she will give u great marks. Very easy to get 90+ She particularly likes science students.
She was extremely HARD MARKER i had her in 103 and honestly not worth the frustration. Her exterior does not match her personality on the inside. Nice person not a very good teacher
very professional. truely cares about each of her students. do the work make a solid effort and you will get what you give. an excellent teacher. thank you anne!!!
i think she is one of the best teachers i've had. She is smooth, appreciates any efforts; she is not grading too bad either; i finished wirh 95,and i didn't work that hard. if u exercise u'll do great
Very sweet teacher. But I don;t like her marking system. I got 85. I feel she tries to lower your mark so it is not so high. Easiest class of my life.
speaks very soft + hard to understand. She encourages her students. I liked this teacher but would not recommend her if you have a hard time in french. Doesnt offer much help and her tests are hard.
Sweetest person! If you read the two books well the tests are easy. Grammar is a joke too. Random questions, compositions and dictees were scattered but very easy overall. If u work 90+ is easy to get
She is an amazing teacher! I love her personality - she is kind, adorable, sweet, understanding..."angel"! She teaches Frech well and tries to help you with it, but you must work hard to get good mark
Listen, if she says she can help you out with your final essay if you're not sure about the content, give it to her! She will help you proof it, and of course after you change it and hand it in you'll get a far better grade. Sweetest woman I've ever seen at Dawson. Fell asleep one time because her voice was so soft (like a lullaby). Take her, show her that you work hard, and you'll get a high 80.
Easy marker? Yes. Friendly? Very. How to pass french? Read the books, listen carefully when she talks about them, and on exams, write as much as possible. If you write a lot, even if it is low quality, you have a much higher chance of getting a good mark. RECOMMENDED TEACHER
Sure... she's a sweetheart until you get on her bad side and see the monster within. This isn't some slacker complaining either. I received a 90 in the class. She kicked me out of class in the midst of a test because i forgot a dictionary.
A sweetheart. Homework load very light. Approachable. Exams kinda iffy (tough), but in the end, is a fair grader.
well, i don't really appreciate this teacher. She gives too easy exercices so i was feeling that it was useless to be in that class.
The best teacher I've ever had...so soft spoken, kind, and is willing to help you out if YOU show the effort...
She has a really nice voice. Helps you a lot if you have troubles. HWK ok. sometimes a lot but not a big deal
easiest class. treates u like ur in kindergarten but it all works out. very helpful, and she throws marks at u.
Nice woman. Will help you learn French, if you don't know it. If you are doing badly in her class, she will give you help in any form. Take her please!!!
so sweet, soooo easy..takes attendance but class is fun
