"Clear grading criteria" "Gives good feedback" "Would take again"

I took an 8 week course with Ryan and it was a LOT of work. But he spreads it out so it's manageable. He grades papers quickly, gives good feedback, and replies promptly to emails . He offers extra credit and it's super easy! You can tell her really cares for his students and wants them to succeed. I would definitely take a class with him again.

"Get ready to read" "Gives good feedback" "Would take again"

Awesome professor! He responds quickly to email and to any questions you have. This was an 8 week class, so it was a lot of reading, 2 exams a week, 2 labs a week, and a discussion a week, but he spreads them out fair enough for you to get the work done in time. He really cares for his students, I would take him again. I got an A in the class.

"There for you" "Clear grading criteria" "Would take again"

Ryan's class was a really good one. He had a clear syllabus that he stuck to, got grades posted quickly, offered helpful videos for the labs, gave a variety of resources and kept the class informed of upcoming assignments. Each assignment given had a quick blurb detailing what we would be doing along with the due date. I would recommend the class.

Professor Henderson really cares about his students. He is fun and informative. You will be successful in his course if you complete all of the material. The accelerated course is challenging. Professor Henderson will help you with anything you need if you ASK. Your grade will reflect the effort you've made.

I took the short-term online biology course, which sounds tough going in. But he gives you a manageable workload and very clear directions which made it much easier to handle. As long as you put in the effort and watch the due dates, you'll do very well in his course. Also, his weekly discussions actually involve INTERESTING topics. A first for me!

There was a lot of work (not hard work), because the class was short-term, but if you keep to the schedule and keep up with the assignments you will do fine. Prof. Henderson made it easy to ask questions and there were a few times where we emailed back in forth for a few hours because I was having trouble on a unit. He's extremely helpful.

You will not regret taking Mr. Henderson! His 4 unit, fast paced Bio class, is so interesting and fun that it's over before you know it. I was never interested in science until this class...I am extremely surprised with how much I've learned. Print the assignment calendar and keep up with the work and receive an A! Couple dissections too!

When I first started this class I was very nervous with it being a very fast paced eight week course, Mr. Henderson has done an excellent job with the way he has put this course together. The work is rather easy if you do your part and read the chapters. I would highly recommend this class!! Great job Mr. Henderson! =)

He was very thorough and helpful. He gave individual feedback on all assignments. He had personality, and it made it more interesting than boring lecture teachers. His assignments were funner than I expected. The tests are more difficult but he gives you 3 chances. Also, he does provide opportunities for extra credit. I would recommend him!!!!!!!!!

I have always been horrible in Science classes, so I was really unsure about taking a 4-unit biology class in 8-weeks. Professor Henderson is awesome! You will get the grade that you put into it. If you want an "A" and put in the work you'll get the "A". Same with a "B", and every other grade. He's a very fair teacher, and I would recommend him.

Best teacher!! I highly recommend him. He is very helpful and grades assignment very fast and always gives you good feedback on how to do things better next time. There is a lot of reading but that’s how you learn ? I took Mr. Henderson online and it was a fast and busy class but easy. Very reasonable on his online tests!!
