Comment:
This is an awesome prof and person! Another prof once commented that Bob is always excited to see students, very respectable as a prof in that way. He is an expert in spectroscopy. His course covers essential topics in the subject with great width and good logical consistency (difficult for a 2nd-year course in spects). He scales up marks a lot.

Comment:
Course is somewhat difficult, but he certainly knows his stuff. This is a good thing and a bad thing. Good - able to articulate what we need to know and understand. Bad - sometimes speaks at level that we don't quite understand. Very willing and extremely helpful if you go to him outside of class with questions. Very fair in assignments and tests.

Comment:
I'm taking the course right now. Pretty much all has been said. It's pretty difficult to read his writing and if you don't pay attention, you can get lost pretty easily. Lecture notes you buy look hard to read, but its not so read that for supplementary. I haven't used the text yet either. Other than that, he is a wonderful prof and loves questions

Sure, he may be a little difficult to understand, but that's because the course material takes a while to grasp. He is always willing to help anyone outside of class, and his tests are fair. Super cool guy.

He is an awesome prof! Exams and problem sets are fair and he welcomes everyone whoever has questions. (Although you do need to do the question yourself before you go ask him).

Yes, his handwriting is hard to read, but he is an awesome prof. His lecture notes were well organized (I didn't have to use the textbook at all) and his is super helpful outside of class. The assignments, the midterm and the final exam were all fair - maybe a bit on the difficult side. (This was a special topics course on molecular spectroscopy.)

This man would help me day and night to understand the material in his class. You can go to his office and ask him anything. Sure he may have not so nice hand writting, but get over it! Great guy and prof!

His writing is extremely hard to read. All your focus and concentration is directed to figuring out what he is writing, so you miss out on what he is trying to explain, which isnt explained very well either. If stuck in his section i suggest printing off another professor's course notes and have a friend in that class to inform you on announcements

He may be really smart and a good researcher, but his teaching is really bad. The textbook was the only source for chem knowledge for me.

Le Roy is plain awful at teaching. He doesnt care about students or what they have to say, he just cares about the radius he came up a half billion years ago and is named after him. Very Unclear!

Amazing and world respected Prof who's known the material before I was born. Great examples and ties to theory and experiment. He may not be a flashy and entertaining guy, but he was always approachable during his office hours, and he's a great guy.

Comment:
This professor turned me and my 6 friends from really enjoying chemistry to hating class with him every morning. The class average on his sections tests were always lower than all the other professors and I reccomend that if you have him as a professor, attend his classes and the classes of another professor.

An excellent proffesor. It was an honour and a privilege to be taught by Mr. Le Roy. Its not often that a world-respected researcher takes time to teach first year classes, but that just shows you his committment to teaching.
