Comment:
Amazing, organized lectures. Great at explaining difficult concepts. Encourages students to attend office hours. Provides lots of practice/take-home questions from the textbook and in lectures as well. Prob would've finished the class with a higher grade if we had him during the entire term. His tests are difficult but fair.

Professor Andy is phenomenal! His lectures are really well paced and he explains things clearly. Too bad we didn't have him for the entire term. Not to mention that he makes the learning experience really fun. Just one side note: the key to success in this class is practice, practice, and more practice!

He really makes chem interesting and fun, he makes sure students are engaged in class and answers questions/stays after class to discuss the lecture content. Really enjoyed his class and I definitely recommend taking this class with him.

Starts lectures with a chemistry dad joke every time. Super accessible outside of class and clearly cares about students. Set up the online version of CHM247 in a great way (better than any of my other courses). Made me want to switch to a chem major. List goes on and on, he's really the best.

I was terrified for CHM247 but he makes it really fun. Surprisingly one of my fav courses ever taken so far. He genuinely cares about students and puts in so much time and effort to make sure we understand the material. Always answering discussion board and after-class questions. Very engaging with students in the zoom lectures.

An incredible lecturer. Goes at a great pace to explain complicated concepts clearly. Does in-class problems to show you how to apply the knowledge you learnt and solidify everything. Very helpful and caring outside of class. Really went out of his way to accommodate students and overall just made organic chemistry a pleasure to learn.

He is a very good lecturer. He explains well in class and is humorous. His midterms were hard but reasonable. But, after the class got moved online due to COVID, his final was super unreasonable, it was the hardest exam ive ever taken in my life. It was SO TOUGH i still did not recover mentally from that exam.

He is just awesome, one of the best prof ever! He explains the concept super clearly and helps are always available. He made me love organic chemistry so much. His British accent made me concentrate more in class. Definitely would highly recommend this prof

I love this guy! Honestly the CHM247 lecturing team is BOMB!! Such great teachers who evidently care for students. Whenever I pass Prof D's office, his door is always open. Also, his accent made me pay more attention to what he was saying, and he overall has excellent presentation skills. I was lucky enough to have him for CHM136 and CHM247.

He is my hero. Always gives a talk after every midterm and he will literally inspire you to do good on the next midterm. Very good lectures that are clear and concise. Covers difficult topics very smoothly and a generally nice and jolly person. Please take his Organic Chem classes, he's the definition of Sweetermans.

He made me like organic chemistry again. After dealing with Professor Browning last year I thought I was hopeless, but Professor D changed that. Go to class. His lectures are awesome. He explains everything so well. His test will definitely test you on some fine details, but if you go to class and work for it you'll do great.

He's a great prof in so many ways. If I had him for the entirety of the course I guarantee I would have gotten an A+. He makes it so his lectures easy to stay focused and he's very clear on what he expects you to know for the tests.

He is excellent at explaining concepts in organic chemistry clearly. It's really easy to understand some complicated concepts as he breaks them down nicely and explains it in steps. However, I find his test questions are really hard. His questions are very tricky and require a lot of application.
