Dr. H is a great professor. You can tell he really cares about his students and loves teaching. He's very helpful in office hours.

CHM 132 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. H is the best professor at UR. He is hilarious and cares about his students like no other. He has many office hours to attend and I've never left feeling like my questions weren't answered. Chemistry is my weak point, but if you work hard, he will notice and you'll get the grade you deserve.

chm 131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He's a very nice guy and very willing to help students, but his lectures are not organized in the best way. One can tell he has yet to figure out the best way to explain some conceps. I'd hesitantly reccomend another prof (except schroeder). You won't get the same super-sunny disposition, but you'll get a more experienced teacher and explainer.

CHM 208 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Still new and learning to be an effective lecturer. Goes off on tangents in lecture which makes it longer than necessary and confusing. Does do a good job clarifying some poorly worded portions of the lab manual (and often makes verbal changes to it in lecture). Very nice and genuinely cares about his students. Really helpful when he comes into lab

CHM132 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. H is an extremely nice person and he cares a lot about his students. However, lectures are a disorganized regurgitation of the textbook. I would recommend primarily using the textbook and using lectures as a supplement.
