104 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

While she is very sweet and open to questions, Professor Kull has a difficult time explaining in class. She rarely lectures, and when she does she often makes mistakes while working problems, or doesn't explain what she's doing as she's doing it. She made Chem 104 - a class that shouldn't be hard - extremely challenging and difficult to grasp.

PHYS251 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

While monotone she is not harsh on grading at all. her labs were extremely do-able. The labs did not take long at all, it was just the instruction part. No practicals and one essay and end of the year teach your own physics lesson which was not bad. you can drop one lab which is also really nice.

PHYS251 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

While this is an easy class, she treats you like you are in kindergarten and insists on going through the lab instruction step by step which usually takes about 45 minutes in which you could be doing the actual lab! And when you ask her something, she is often confused.

PHYS251 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This was an extremely boring class. She insisted on walking us though each experiment step by step, which usually took longer than the experiments themselves. She also went off on tangents alot, leaving you wondering how this topic related to physics. But as long as you show up and do the labs, it's pretty easy to get an A.

chem101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

If you're not knowledgable in chemistry, switch professors or find someone who knows what they're doing. If you do understand chemistry, read the book, it should tell you everything you need to know. She can be very confusing, but try to stick with what you know is fact and read the textbook, you'll be fine.

CHEM108 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She most literally the worst teacher I've ever had, including elementary through high school. I'm a good student; got an A from Owens last semester and actually was starting to like chem. I'm getting something like a C from her and consider myself lucky. Taking Kull for lab is like flushing tuition down the toilet.

Kull is 100% incompetent.End of story.Shes confusing,doesn't know what she's talking about,&has no reasoning behind her grading. DONT TAKE HER CLASS.If you're stuck in this class, brush up on your debate skills bc you will have to fight w/ her over every grade.If you can confuse her, she gives up&gives u points back...but u didnt hear that from me.

chem111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Worst teacher EVER! Confusing lectures due to her having no idea what she is talking about. She constantly confused herself and she was never prepared for class.I had to teach myself most of the material.She had no idea how to do her own labs or even what the outcome was supposed to be. AVOID HER AT ALL COSTS!!!

AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!! She is a sweet heart but really is useless when you have a question. We were working on IRs and asked her what the spikes meant and she didn't know...took it to Owens and he said someone breathed on it...I think she knew the material at one time but not anymore. If you are taking her...CHANGE, RUN, GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN!!!

Chem108 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is a very sweet lady, but honestly she has no idea what she is talking about. I asked a ton of questions and although she had answers, they weren't clear and were sometimes even wrong. Her grading was weird because I would always find misktakes. Avoid taking her if you can!!

chem105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Horrible horrible horrible! She has extremely confusing lectures. She doesn't seem to know the material and she confuses herself a lot. She is willing to help you, but how much help can you get from someone who cannot communicate? I HIGHLY advise taking another professor. 16 out of 17 people in my class have a 70 or below.. Please do yourself a

Chem107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I had Bethea,my friend had Kull.My friend is generally great in Chemistry and I am rusty. I got an A and she has to retake it. I know Bethea has some bad reviews but he is a sweetheart and he helps. The lab is his domain. Kull needs to take some teaching courses while at Winthrop. She is smart but brains don't necessarily make a good teacher.

This is the worst professor ever teaching a chemistry class at Winthrop University. Her test are extremely hard and even with help from tutoring it was still hard to understand in her class. Worst Teacher Ever, don't take her. Because of her I have to retake this class.

chem106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

There was not enough time for all of the material to be taught but all of the material is on the tests. VERY HARD to understand what is going on. If you have questions on homework then you better know how to answer them in order to get help (doesn't make sense).

She may know her chemistry, but she does not know how to teach it to her students. The entire time, you're working on the math in class, but on the test there are concept questions and problems never seen in class!
