Comment: Accent hard to understand at first, but you get used to it. Fair at explaining thermo concepts. Definitely makes some good jokes in class. Exams are hard in the sense that every question is worth quite a bit, so missing some costs a lot. But overall, not too bad a prof to take chem 4a with.

Comment: The assignments did not always relate to/help with the actual coursework and exam problems. The powerpoint lectures were always sent out to us beforehand, which was helpful. He has a relatively thick accent, but you can usually understand him well. He's super funny, chill, and always in a good mood.

Comment: The lectures of the professor are really great. She uses board and chalk which makes more sense to me and easier to learn. Her exams are easy but assignments are really challenging and fantastically interesting. I will surely take another course with the professor in the future.
