Generally a good leader for the lab portion. The TAs did most of the work as usual but he definitely is likeable and welcoming. Remember to memorize the previous experiments you've done before the in-class quizzes, as they are worth about 10% of your total grade. Know how to do redox.

He is young and funny. He is running the labs for CHEM 111, although I secretly wish he was running the course too

He's an amazing prof. He's very tech-savvy. Uses twitter, answers everything on discussion boards, quick at replying to emails. I've never had a prof utilize powerpoints in a way he does. He makes hard concepts simple to understand by laying out what we need to know on the fill-in during class powerpoints. He even posts them up after class.

I liked O Chem. That alone should be proof enough to how good Jay is at being teacher. Just one bad thing: he talks so freaking fast.

This course is insane! Jay makes it so much better though. He's a comedian and a scientist at the same time. Boring topics were actually interesting because of his enthusiasm. I had heard horror stories about this course. I survived? Thanks Jay (do profs read these things?)

If you're planning on taking CHEM 233 in the future, I'd highly recommend taking it with Jay. Great at explaining concepts and tries his best to make the course more interesting. Very helpful in office hours and even held them on Saturdays before midterms! It's evident that Jay really wants his students to succeed. Excellent prof overall!

Jay was the best prof I've ever had. Always available for questions either during office hours or through email or twitter. Very clear and easy to understand even though I don't even like chemistry. I'd highly recommend him.

Honestly, the best prof I've had at UBC. Not only does he pus in way too much effort by replying to emails and tweets regularly, but he also makes one of the most hated courses at UBC enjoyable. He goes out of his way to satisfy every single student. Extended Office hours. Highly Recommended.

Hands down best prof ever. Fair assessments. Ridiculously amazing office hours during the summer session. Easy to understand. Funny. Made the most boring parts of organic chemistry much easier to digest. There is no prof at UBC like him. Seriously consider taking this "med school weeder class" with Jay.

Jay is awesome! The class is huge and you can tell he sometimes gets exhausted helping everyone, but he still tries really hard! He even meets students on Saturday's for office hours before exams. Highly recommend for the fall term!

Jay is a very hard working professor. One time when there was an error with one of my midterm marks he worked carefully, patiently, and professionally to get it sorted out even when he had so many other students to attend to. The course is hard but he teaches it very well and works diligently to help students. Highly recommended.
