154 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Skip class? You won't pass." "Amazing lectures" "Respected by students"

Professor Nunez, alongside Addison, provide an amazingly concise and clear lesson plan for an incredibly diverse amount of material. Take Chemistry 11, Chemistry 12, and a little bit more and squish it into one classthat's what chem 154 was, but through lectures alone they made everything understandable. Professor Nunez himself is also super nice.

CHEM 154 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Hilarious" "Respected by students" "Inspirational"

I didn't have a strong foundation in chemistry when I left highschool, but that didn't hold me down. Dr. Nunez's lectures were very engaging and clear. Even if some materials were review from high school, he'd always explained it better. Both midterms and final were fair, if you could do the worksheet questions you will be prepared.

"There for you" "Respected by students" "Hilarious"

Really, really wants you to pass! Great guy, great lab. Highly recommend doing the photometer group, even though it's a looooooooooooooot of work, it's worth getting to work with Nunez and helps you get a very deep understanding of spectroscopy. Your lab notebook is your bible.

CHEM121 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Amazing, inspirational and extremely helpful. Chem 121 is generally considered to be challenging once you get to quantum mechanics and that was true but he will essentially relecture and go over everything in great detail over and over in his office hours. What a beauty.

A dedicated prof that is always willing to help his students. Makes you want to throw in 110% into the course/lab work too. Office hours are the best hours. Also, chilli pepper well deserved.

I love his analogies during class! I found them super great for understanding the material. Would totally recommend going to his office hours too, he's super friendly and helpful and dedicated to the students. Though there may be long line for him, he's worth the wait.

Chem 121 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He truly helps his students in office hours and is really keen on answering questions. He's really approachable and smiles often. He truly cares about teaching (had us fill a feedback form asking how his teaching is and how to improve) He uses demonstrations a lot and that helps makes class more exciting. He is an engaging prof. Recommended!

CHEM121 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is very approachable outside of class and tries his best to answer questions during his lectures. Chem 121 itself is a course that is somewhat confusing at times, but he tries to make it more interactive with demonstrations. Good prof overall.

Chem121 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He always tries to answer every question you have. And you can just go to his office without making any appointment. He is always there when he has no lab or lecture. He loves teaching. And he is also kind of funny.

CHEM188 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

You can tell that he has a passion for learning and truly cares about his students. He always tries to integrate useful analogies to spice up the class a little, though it doesn't always work. Either way, he's a great person and for an 8AM class he kept me awake. I would definitely take another one of his classes!

CHEM121 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He's a really nice guy who loves to add little anecdotes into his lectures. His accent took a little time to get used to but it's not a problem after two weeks in. He has a totally open door policy and actually seems interested in learning who you are and what your learning needs are. Recommended!
