She grades depending on her mood so you have to fight for your marks. She can be really sweet in person and then you get that Lea notification for a past assignment in which she marked as failed for no reason in particular.

I had her for feminism (wild geese) and this teacher made it impossible to do well. She doesn't make an effort to help her students succeed and I don't think she cared. Most of the class time was spent either discussing the book, watching documentaries and having class debates. If you don't share her opinion or at least pretend to, you won't do well. In my opinion, she was very biased towards her own ideals.

She's honestly among the worst teachers I've ever had. Not only is she horrible with explanations, but she also made me fail my final project. By failing I don't mean giving me 50%, I mean she gave me a 0, with no explanations regarding the mark. She opens your MIOs and doesn't answer (your best bet is office hours but then again, each time I went she was busy). She made me fail another assignment because I was slightly off with the question she gave. Try to avoid her if you can.

She is very unclear with her explanations, she gives many many written assignements, her correction is rather strict and she always opens your questions from MIO but will never answer. She is also very impatient with students in class and sometimes refusing to answer questiond. And that ladies and gentlemen is professor Tamara Boness. I was strongly encouraged to drop her class by one of her previous student and I ignored her. Should have listened kids.

If you want easy marks take her. But i do not recommend her at all, you won't learn anything, her classes are very boring and she doesn't teach anything. It's basically reading what's in the textbook. She is also too emotional and expects everyone to participate and agree with her opinion.

I usually try to love my teachers despite how weird or mean they are because I understand that teaching is a hard job, but I just can't with her. I do my best and can't seem to get good grades, and although she is super knowledgeable and a good listener, she doesn't teach as well as I feel like she could.

this teacher picks favourites.the easiest way to pass this class is to agree w/her. she always changes her mind about due dates and how she wants things done and its never written down so she denies what she said. if she doesn't like your opinion she will tell you you're wrong and give you a bad grade. drop the class, or suck up. the class is just watching an hour video, then writing a page worth of your opinion. she never posts grades and if you miss one class, will complain all year.

Worst teacher I've ever had. Didn't have a clue what she was trying to teach. Not difficult, but no organization. She'd get pretty aggressive when you wouldn't skip other courses to come to her office hours "just to talk". Prejudiced too, she liked to start class debates and trash-talk french language and stuff. The Westmount girls who sat in front of me loved her, so I guess if you like reading, like to trash-talk quebec culture in class, and despise men, then she'll adore you too.

Weird teacher. She doesn't really know what to do of her class, it feels like she is always improvising. She sometimes gives homeworks and forgets about them. I have never heard her give any actual class material, she was only asking us to answer questions and discuss them with the class. Very awkward teacher but you make friends easily and end up knowing everyone in this class because everyone is p!ssed. Exams are hard because if you don't write what she thinks, you get a zero. Not recommending

During her classes you'll ask yourself ''What's wrong with this person??'' at least a thousand times. She's very talkative, but doesn't really listen to anyone - if you ever see her somewhere, you won't be able to get rid of her. She hates everyone who dares not to have the same opinion as her and will give bad grades to the students she doesn't like. She expects everyone to show up during her office hours, but will rarely be there herself. Never teaches anything.
