What a great experience! Kalyn really cares and it shows every day in her class. She might seem a little spacey at times but she is super smart.

Good lectures are meant to supplement textbook topics. This professor will expect you to read the chapter before her lecture, so DO it or get left in the dust. Her handouts are great practice for her exams. She is also very forgiving about small math mistakes on exams and always willing to help explain topics.

Very knowledgable in her field and passionate about teaching. What more can you ask for? She is also willing to accept resubmissions on assignments. If you don't understand something from her lecture just ask!

She seems great and eager to teach but, homework does the teaching, the homework is online from a book that's apparent to me, she has not read.

Good teacher and fair! If you apply yourself you will learn in her class. Does not spoon feed you but is very helpful and interested in her student's comprehending the material. Not sure where the extremely negative ratings are coming from.

Shes great, Class is pretty easy since you get to do a lot of group quizzes, and homework due online once a week. All this practice will help you learn chemistry pretty easy. She loves chemistry and you can tell, very knowledgable. I will take her again. do your work, and you'll get a solid A

I only have her for Gen Chem Prep and so far it's great. Some of the students in the class (see below recent comments) simply are either computer illiterate or just not very bright. If you can operate Internet Explorer and do basic math you should get an A in this class no prob. Shes very friendly and really seems to love chemistry, which is great!

She wants the computer to be your teacher. Need I say more.

Loves Chemistry, but hates struggling learners. Gets frustrated if you don't get something and defensive if you ask for more practice in class. Relies HEAVILY on peer instruction thru group projects in class, then you're on your own for homework. Does not explain internet tools well. Reads slides. Should not teach intro class. Take someone else

Great teacher! Very engaging and clear in her lectures and activities. The environment in her class is very positive. She makes the material fun and accessible. Recommended.

Very nice teacher, but she creates an almost elementary school-style environment and then contrasts it with harsh grading. Comment below about answer length & perfection is spot on. There's no leeway. She also forces group activities constantly, so if you hate those, avoid the in-person. The class isn't hard, but you must be thorough to succeed.

She is nice but a bad teacher. She will not help those students who struggle,and though she gives you many resources. Its confusing on how to use them or if they will be relevent enough for her tests. Take another teacher if you have the chance!

Do NOT take this as an online course. It's a horrible format. She'd took days to return my e-mails, and would respond with one word answers. i'm really trying to give her the benefit of the doubt because of the poor format. she might be great, but i thought she was lazy. The TA comical. his best advice was to tell students to "google" things.

I had Kalyn for all three General Chemistry courses and came away loving chemistry. She used slides lots of collaboration and had a great teaching style. I would recommend her to anyone for genChem

An okay teacher. She doesn't know how to teach with powerpoint and makes chemistry harder actually. quite meticulous on grading. labs can be better explained. overall, a mediocre instructor.
