2423 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

Dr. Kouadio was one of the best professors I have ever had. You have to buy a lecture note-book, but it has everything you need and he teaches straight from it. Study, go to class, pay attention, and you will do fine. If you ask questions and try to answer his, he will help you. I don't think I would have understood ochem from any other professor.

CHEM101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Kouadio was the most helpful teacher I've ever had. He would either come to class early or stay late to help me. I had extreme difficulty with chemistry concepts at first and he made learning easy and fun. I'll never forget 12+1!;D

Quiz every time and have to be on time or miss quizzes. Tests are extremely hard and online homework are extremely difficult!!!!!!!!!!! Dr. Kouaidio is a PHD and he expects us to be his level so his tests are hard.

I am shocked, I study my butt off for this test and I got a C! Online homework extremely hard and having to draw all the structures, so tedious, that takes up all my studying time and I can't even finish it and they are due soon.

CHEM2423 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I am shocked when I got my grade, I worked so hard and thought a B is what I got. Ridicuously I made a C, the bad part is he doesn't let us see our test and so we don't know what we miss or how to fix our mistakes from what we miss, you have to go see him in his office!!!!!! So rarely anyone goes, bc he can make you feel intimidated or stupid!

Do not take him if you want to learn or earn an A. I only have two sciences class and this class I spent so much time on homework, extremely hard homework online, you'll never get to finish it even you get help from tutors.

This is community college, but he makes it hard like university. His teaching is not clear, you can't hardly understand him and tests are extremely hard. Have to take at testing center not during class time.

Heavy accent,you have to self study and have all the time, then you can pass his class but don't expect easy A. You have to work very hard to get. He's sarcastic and you can't ask him questions, he makes you feel stupid. Homework online extremely hard, not enough practice problems he go over. You have to spend a lot time with homework.

I heard people said he is good, but it's not true, you can't ask him questions and when you ask he remembers you, he makes you feel stupid and keep on picking on you. His tests are extremely tricky and hard and his homework online even tutors have hard time to figure out, homework extremely hard that required a lot of time.

CHEM 2425 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Kouadio is really such a great teacher. I took ochem at A&M and it was impossible to understand so I dropped it, but when I took Dr. Kouadio's class he made it so easy to learn. He could be annoying at times, but also really funny. I really miss him!

Do not take this professor. He is funny at times, but I didn't pay for this class to provide a comedian. His heavy accent makes it difficult to understand. If you tell him to repeat himself or if you don't understand something he will talk to you like you're stupid and tell you to pay attention. I did well but with no help from him.

CHEM 2425 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Overall, students like him. He's very passionate and has a great attitude. I sometimes feel that he dumbs things down so much that I lose track of the big picture. He likes to tell stories and deviate from class, which I find refreshing, and often, interesting! My only complain is the hmk, it's long, tedious, hard. and worth 10% of grade.

Chem 1411 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

II took Dr. Kouadio this summer at TCC South East Campus. He is the best chemistry professor in DFW. He makes chemistry idiot proof. He covers entire book and you have to study hard to pass his class. Dr. Kouadio is very generous - he always gives extra point. If you pay attention to his letcutre – you will do fine.

Chem 2423 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This guy is the human embodiment of yoda. He runs the classroom like a dang Jedi. He is very quick at spotting potholes in your understanding, and he comically makes you focus in class. If you have an attention disorder this is the best teacher especially since Ochem requires a lot of attention to detail.

The type of professor you will remember when you're 80 years old. Dr. K has made me love and enjoy Organic Chemistry. One of the best professors to ever teach and will certainly continue to enrich the minds of many! P.s. Take Lanny for Lab! The best lab instructor you will get! By the way, Lab is amazingly fun!

I had Dr. K over twenty years ago when he was just a TA at URI and he was the best teacher and person that I had ever had the pleasure of knowing. I was a poor student at that time, but he never gave up on me. Although I never made it through URI, I later graduated from NU w/ BS in Pharmacy. Owe "K" many thanks!
