BIOL 2020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: D+

If I could one person in this world it would be her. Worst lab instructor on planet. She is extreme waste of oxygen and needs to be put into the ground. She has ruined my life and lives of many others in my class. AVOID HER AT ALL COST. If possible kill her

BIOL 3032 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Very little communication with expectations for assignments and manuscripts until after the were handed back. Lab component made me regret taking the class. Very interesting labs, horribly executed. Strongly advise everyone to avoid this class just because of the labs.

Terrible instructor. Unclear, changes her mind (tells you something is good then takes marks off for it) and attacks you with questions that you're unprepared for.

BIOL3010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I have nothing but respect for Sylvie, (she still scares me though). Lab methods has been one of the most practical, interesting and ball busting class I have taken, but it adds character and chest hair. And her accents hot get over it.

read the textbook, otherwise u won't learn that much from her teaching. she is hard to understand with that accent, u can learn just as much by reading the textbook as attending lectures. Other than that I liked her

Lab Methods. All you whiny 1st years that think shes hard just wait until you take classes that actually require. Yes you should read the text book. Yes you should go to class. Suck less. Shes harder then Garside, but she teaches useful stuff you can take with you.

As mentioned before, Sylvie's English-French hybrid language make attending class counterproductive. After a midterm with a very poor class average, she emailed the class and informed them that if they did poorly, there were only 2 days left to drop the course. I would recommend avoiding any courses she teaches at all costs.

BIOL1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is from france and in her lectures she speaks a hybrid language that i call Fringlish. IMPOSSIBLE to understand and you can learn more by just not going and just downloading the lecture notes.

Biol2030 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

The worst professor ever. Does not deserve to be even called "a teacher". And I had A- in Biochem with her teaching it. Her contribution, as a teacher, was close to 0 to a decent grade that I got.

Bio3010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Anyone taking lab methods prepare to fail. Grading is unfair and ambiguous. She's impossible to please. I regret this course as it has ruined my life. Switch out of this class avoid it at all costs I swear.

She's ok, everything you need to know was in the textbook. Quite often there were only 4 or 5 people in the tutorial sessions, that's not her fault.

She is very hard to understand and not very approachable. A lot of failures in this class because she didn't explain things very well
