"Get ready to read" "Tough Grader" "Tests are tough"

She is very knowledgable about chemistry and has many degrees it's impressive however her teaching methods do not teach you chemistry. This is a self taught class. You have to go home and review and teach yourself because she does not cover everything. Only Advantages are using her worksheets for tests and quizzes other than that YOUR ON YOUR OWN.

"Tests are tough" "Get ready to read" "Tough Grader"

Not organized. Bearly teaches a chapter then gives a quiz on it on the same day. The most questions on a test will be 20 and quizzes 10. Doesn't mean their easy. Most of her problems on tests and quizzes are from Organic chemistry math problems. (Google them) wouldn't recommend anyone to take her. pick another professor!!

CHM 1032 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She is such a great teacher. Some people have trouble understanding her accent but i had no problem at all. She is very clear on what is important and what she will test you on. Just do your part and study what she asks for, do the homework (easy) and you will pass with an A.

CHM1045 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is helpful in all the information that she gives out. For instance, when she explains a new chapter and her powerpoint. She does examples and asks if you need help or if you don't understand to please inform her. She drops the lowest test. She gives h.w and quizzes to better your grade. Finally, she is very passionate about chemistry. work hard

Dr. Ulyanova is way to fast and her accent is way to hard to understand. She speeds trying to explain the chapters. I had to go each time after class to the SI tutor to get a better understanding. I dont advise anyone to take her.

Awesome professor!! She speaks clearly, if you can't understand her then you probably have a bulk of wax in you ear. She is very knowledgeable. Her tests are on the material taught and she will let you know what to focus on. Her office door is always open and she is always willing to go over any previous test together. Truly passionate teacher!!

I took this professor for chemistry 1 and 2 . She does have an accent but you can still understand what she is saying. Chemistry is a hard subject to learn and she’s willing to help anytime.

CHM1046 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She does know the subject very well, but her accent is hard to understand, she goes way too fast and is not the best when explaining hard concepts.Its not even an option to look on the internet for help, because you will need to, because she does not go completely by the book, and her notes are not explained well, but a very nice lady..

I took this class for over the summer for the 6 weeks and I have to say I worked my butt off for an A. Print the ppt notes beforehand, she goes over them in class, and her examples are on the test. She tells you what will be on the test. Do your homework! its extra credit and really HELPS!

Dr. Ulyanova has a true love for chemistry. She is a good teacher and definitely knows her stuff. The problem is for me as an American, her accent was very difficult for me to understand. I taught myself mostly from youtube and going to the tutor. Not the easiest class. But you can pass if you study.

Be prepared to study. Do the homework and make sure you understand it, if not ask for help. She gives plenty of chances to get a good grade but it really is up to you.

Very talented professor. She has a strong accent, but after a couple of classes you get used to it. Be on top of all the home work, read the text book and Dr. Ulianova's Power Point presentations and you will rock it.

Her accent is very thick, so at times she is hard to understand. She is very knowledgeable in CHM, you must take 1020 before taking her 1045 class or you will be lost! She goes quick through all of the information and takes little time explaining. I went to two classes and could not keep up, had to drop.

chm1020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

If Chemistry is a hard subject for you than prepare to study a lot on your own. She is very knowledgeable but skips over some of the basics, so you end up teaching yourself. I think it is in part because there is a lot of material to learn and because she thinks we should be more advanced. Overall, she is very fair and so are her tests.
