he was so rude and called out students peronally in front of the whole class, not only was he unclear about course material but got annoyed when he was asked to go over things. this man is the reason why i dropped french immersion.

Mr. Dumas would take the free time out of his day to help those who were struggling in courses. He was very understanding and would often extend project due dates, allow people to write tests in private and I general was a very accomodating professor. The one thing that I still use today in everyday life that he introduced to my class was sentence analysis and handwriting analysis. This has actively helped me to achieve honour roll in my college investigations program.

He's not a bad guy, and seems to genuinely want to help his students, he's just not always capable of leading a class knowledgeably and efficiently. A lot of class time is wasted, and he has some difficulty answering questions concisely or accurately. A nice person, but not a very good teacher.

I don't really understand what people have against him. He takes time to talk to you if you need it, you just have to put a little effort in. I find that he's very clear when explaining things to me.

Mr. Dumas is a brilliant and passionate teacher who does not get the gratitude and respect from the students who he so adamantly cares for.

I think he's been teaching Geography for too long since he demands perfection. His standards are too high and gives more homework than I think he realizes. Kids with the other teacher usually have 10-15% better than us.

gives way to much homework and doesnt have the best teaching methods. yeah, he's fair if you pay attention in class, but he also tends to just give big booklets or sections from the text and doesnt explain stuff.

Waaay too much work. Totally unnecessary, and completely unflexible. Some people just shouldn't be teachers, Mr. Dumas is several of them.

He is about the worst teacher I ever had! Its not a matter of the amount of work he gives, its how he treats everyone in his classes and how explains things!
