A very intense and uninviting atmosphere in her class, was never focused on the material because I was always so worried about being asked oral in front of the whole class. If you can get past that she is a great teacher though.

Corinne is one of the nicest teachers in the Institute (and that is saying a lot). She was so helpful. She does like her coffee breaks, but you can't blame her for that. Best french teacher I've ever had, she creates an immersive atmosphere in her class and really optimises all of her students grades.

Worst teacher I've ever had in my life. Graduated from the institute in 2013 and I was always an enthusiastic student but I really struggled with French. Instead of providing me with extra help and support she first asked me to drop down to ordinary level and when I did she still didn't help me in any way so she asked me to drop out altogether. Had to quit French and pick up Geography instead the Christmas before my leaving cert. She really made me lose a lot of confidence in my abilities.

Excellent teacher! Really cares about her students. Gives her email address to students and offers to correct work for them right up until days before the exam. Notes are excellent! Only criticism is that I felt she over-prepared me for the exam, which is definitely not a bad thing!

Corinne has helped me so much in French, she's the only reason I'm still in honours. She'll always find time to help you if you ask, but isn't afraid to tell you when she thinks you're not working. I'm still scraping Cs, but it's better than dropping to ordinary. I love the woman.
