i feel like this may be an unfair rating, as i had her in a french science 10 class and it was her first time doing it in french in a long time. My class was also filled with a bunch of jocks, so she wasnt always in the best mood with our class. She was nice enough, though, and she explained everything with clarity. I found her a little condescending, although that might just be the language aspect. She seemed to genuinely enjoy teaching, and in turn it was easier to enjoy her class.

Absolutely amazing teacher with a great attitude in and out of the class. I found it easy to follow along during lectures. I did find that some of the homework loads given towards the end of the semester were a bit bigger than needed, but otherwise I have no complaints!!

Mrs. Benoit-Canning is very helpful when you have specific questions about the subjects we are learning. In small groups and one on one, it is easy to learn from her however when the entire class is learning something new together, we get lost often and things tend to be a little fuzzy.

Mrs. benoit-canning is very good at explaining things when you don't know them, she ususally thinks of good examples to relate too. But she does spend to long on the easy things which leaves less time for the very hard things. So some advice would be to go quicker with thw stoicheometry and spend more time on atomic theory and organic.

Ms benoit canning is sometimes very difficult to understand. I find myself drifting off becuase the clarity isn't great. I would suggest that she find different ways of helping people when they ask for it, instead of telling them to do what they think. If they don't know how to do it how are they supposed to do anything? I think she's a sweet person, but some of her teaching methods need to be revised.

Mrs Benoit Canning was a very knowledgable teacher who was able to impart all of the necessary content for grade 11 Advanced Chemistry. I feel as if adequate time was spent on each subject, giving us a variety of Chemistry knowledge to take into AP or our next Chemistry course.

Teaches entirely from the textbook and overheads, which are wrong over half the time. Goes over unimportant tasks (homework, useless labs) far too much compaired to what needs to be done. Does not prepare students very well for grade 12 chemistry. Stoichiometry was the only taught well enough that everyone understood.
