CHEM 111 Lab Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Respected by students" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Actually managed to make Chem labs fun, he's really chilled and a bit of a joker but don't get on the wrong side of him.

Jay was a great prof and is probably the best chem professor there is at UBC! Super helpful, and lectures were very interesting because he makes ochem fun, and explains difficult concepts extremely well. Assessments were fair. No bad comments at all! Take his class if you can!

Jay was awesome! He did his best to make ochem fun and interesting and he had the best analogies. He was always available on Facebook to answer everyone's questions and really wanted everyone to succeed. Midterms were tricky but fair, and the final wasn't too bad. I highly recommend him.

I just finished asking him a question on Facebook messenger. That should speak for itself. He is young, funny and uses social media to help students. Best prof since Dr. Sammis in first year.

CHEM111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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!
