Ms. Lee is a great professor as far as lecturing and helping students. But there were times when she said things in the classroom which were unprofessional for a teacher when it came to student's attendance. She can be a little impatient at times but it's because she wants students to read lecture notes before they come to class.

I would avoid taking Professor Lee for any Chem class. She waist more time on off topic and completely irrelevant material then any other teacher iv had,thus putting the class behind. This causes her to rush through material and breeze over complex topics in hast to get caught up. she is often in a poor mood and not very approachable for questions.

Nancy is wonderful and has a passion for chemistry. She is always available to help you.Chemistry is a tough subject and if you don't study you are going to struggle regardless of the teacher. Nancy is upfront with her expectations and as long as you listen to her you will do great. I will definitely keep her in mind for future chemistry classes.

As a teacher, she is ok. Good at explaining things, but very easily frustrated. She has a tendency to snap at you if you frustrate her. Not at all clear about when things are due, when tests are, and especially unclear about what will be covered on tests. Not a good class to take if you need structure and clear instructions.

CHEM 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Let's be real, chem is hard. You're going to have to work. This is college. Dr.Lee is upfront about what she expects. You get to drop 1 test, 2 hw, 2 labs... Yes, in class she can be scatter-brained sometimes, but she definitely isn't over the top ridiculous like some comments claim. Class is straightforward. Do the work and you'll be fine.

Teacher is hard to follow in lecture. Gets frustrated easily when we don't understand concepts quickly. Says that we are "expected to learn on our own time, and not in class". Tests are too hard because information is jammed down our throats quicker than we can learn it.

This class was easy to begin with and progressively got harder as the semester went on. Ms.Lee progressively got more frustrated with us as the topics got harder and subsequently needed more explanation. she is extremely strict about attendance. If you miss a day, make sure you get the notes from someone, otherwise you'll be behind.

Ms. Lee is very nice and is always willing to help. Although seems like she looses patience when you ask her a question for clarification. Attendance is mandatory in this class if you want to pass with a good grade. Make sure to take good notes because that is what the tests are based on.

CHEM 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Works hard to make sure everyone knows what is expected. Hardest part of this class is that people around you take her for granted, causing her to frequently stop everyone to explain particulars over again. Can be scattered but very fair and clear. Read her syllabus and write down what she says and writes. And study. Just follow directions!

Highly recommend this teacher. Syllabus clearly states what is expected as far as due dates, etc. She spends a better part of lecture going over and over computations necessary to pass the upcoming quizzes, so failing a quiz is completely a result of your failure atpaying attention in lecture. Homeworks and lab reports and graded for completeness.

Very straight forward professor. Breaks everything down for you and doesn't expect you to know anything outside of her lectures. Willing to help you if you cant grasp a concept but only if you will work for it. Tests are timed but other than that excellent professor.

She is an amazing professor! She is helpful and really does want you to succeed. Listen to her advice on how to study for her tests, seriously. It took me half the semester to finally get it together and apply her study tips. It made a HUGE difference. Her tests are primarily focused on calculations and she is thorough with her lab notebook checks.

I left the last comment and thought I should leave a follow up. After this teacher read my complaint, it was fixed and she went out of her way to make sure assignments were clearly defined. She is a great teacher in that this issue was heard and quickly addressed, and even mentioned it on blackboard. I credit this website for helping with that. :-)

I am in her class now, and I'm fairly concerned over the clarity of the assignments, and when they are due. They seem to change on the whim of an email. When asked about what is due,she says she expects us to know. This causes slowdown during class time. She seems very knowledgeable and charismatic, but could be more straight forward about homework

she is so civilized and polite. she expects everyone to succeed. She is so helpful no matter how many questions you have she always struggles to help out. She lectures so clearly everyone understands them. Her class is so organize in terms of exams, lab reports, and homework assignments.

Professor Nancy Lee is an extremely helpful instructor. She makes difficult concepts very easy to follow for those in need for clarification. The homework quantity is appropriate for a 5 unit class. Her labs are entertaining as well. Avoid moving forward (mentally) if you do not understand the material. This will only hinder your success. GL!

She was very helpful throughout the semester. Go to class everyday and come prepared- she goes through certain parts rather quickly. Write thorough lab reports and study your lecture notes. It's hard work, so stay on top of it. I got an A, btw.

Chem100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Bad teacher. She rushes lectures, doesn't answer questions besides the basic things I could Google anyways. She says how important studying at home is and reviewing using the book and then tells us not to listen to our book because she disagrees with it. She constantly falls behind during the semester and then rushes tests. Lab is easy though.

Professor Lee is just awesome. Do the homework and attend her lectures and there shouldn't be a reason not to get an A. She checks lab notebooks regularly and actually reads what's in it so you need to be a good writer. The best thing is she never tests you on things not covered in the homework or lecture and her exams are never longer than an hour
