Comment:
She managed to explain difficult chemistry concepts in a clear manner and seemed to really care about her students. I credit her help sessions to getting an A in chem 112 because Sobotka's teaching was so bad.

Comment:
Frey is the worst of the Chem professors. She just plowed through the material, and she seemed to no care if we learned anything. Daschbach was much better. Frey was also useless at help session unless you asked a question about a specific hw problem, and even then she would just read the key, which we already have. Really frustrating semester.

Professor Frey had supported my friend and me through very tough times. She was very caring and I very much enjoyed her class. I am very happy to have taken my first chemistry class with Professor Frey. In a sense, she helped me grow a healthy mindset towards college. I couldn't thank her enough.

Comment:
Frey is very awkward. She reads from her notes in a cold tone. It is not clear she understands everything she is saying. She does not answer questions well. Then she insists we work together on simple clicker questions. I strongly recommend you take someone else for Gen Chem. Overall the course is good, but she is not.

An incredibly sweet professor who genuinely cares about students' academics and their personal wellbeing. Her explanations are SO helpful and she breaks down the material so that you understand it very intuitively. Gives out candy during help sessions!

Comment:
She is pretty organized, but it seems like she is reading a script when she lectures. Her fake enthusiasm is annoying and condescending. My father came to one of the lectures and left disgusted by her antics. What is with the candy? We are not 5 yrs old.

Amazing professor that makes lectures interesting. Dr. Frey is highly energetic, once pretending to be an electron by running around the lecture hall. Cares highly about her students. Make sure to understand the material and do the problem sets. This is not a memorization- heavy class. Utilize all resources: RPM, POGIL, PLTL, office hours

Comment:
I don't understand the praise for Frey. She is ok, at best. After the first class, I started going to Buhro's section-wow, he's much better. They are absolutely opposites. She seems to care only about test scores, and not how the students are learning the material. She is also not patient with questions and way too rushed.

Comment:
Her lectures are fine, a bit dry and I wish she would not just read from her notes. She struggles with explaining things beyond what she has presented. They preach that the exams will push you, but I didn't see it. Just memorize the problems from POGIL or PLTL and you will do fine.

Professor Frey is a very good lecturer. She explains hard topics well and is approachable for questions after class. She also writes down almost everything she says which makes it much easier to take thorough notes. Her help sessions are not my favorite, but I do recommend her lecture.

Comment:
Dr. Frey is always very energetic during her lectures, especially when she hops around and pretends to be an electron. I love it. She moves at a fast enough pace that the lectures don't get boring, but slowly enough to allow students time to process and understand what she is teaching.

Although this is a very difficult class, professor Frey is an excellent teacher. She is usually very clear and always concise. Her lectures are always the fullest, because many students enrolled in the other sections prefer Frey's teaching style.

She will tell you exactly what will be on the exams. Lectures are a bit boring though. She has a tough to e explaining several topics. I went to other's help sessions to get better explanations. Overall she's ok, and you can get a good grade, even if you don't understand the material.

Of the three gen chem teachers, she is the best. She teaches everything you need to know on the test in a clear and understandable manner and will answer your questions well.

Frey is very clear, and spells out everything you need to know. I wish she would have pushed us a bit more in terms of applying the concepts. Overall, not bad though. It is a bit annoying that students talk throughout lecture.

One of the best teachers I've had. I had heard a lot of talk about how this course is the worst but she made it interesting and understandable. Strongly suggest taking her section, Lumus guest lectures did not compare and left some scratching their heads.

Professor Frey is a great professor who explains difficult concepts in an exceptionally clear way. Exams were very tricky, but as a whole, the class was not as difficult as I had expected based on what I had heard from other students/faculty.

Frey is a clear lecturer, and she makes it pretty obvious want she wants you to know for the exams. She sometimes has a hard time giving alternative explanations of concepts. Overall, don't be afraid of Chem 111 since they no longer curve. They use a straight point system.

Frey is amazing! She is energetic during the lectures&keeps the class engaged & participatory-quite the feat w/ such a large lecture. She is always willing to take Q's during lecture or stay after. She formats her notes organizationally&simplifies the learning process. Some disliked her notes, as it took her time to write them, but it helped many!
