Comment:
Hiner is a great guy, but I feel as if he repeatedly teach this class for reassurance that HE knows his stuff but CANT teach it. Which absolutely sucks for kids who is trying to do good because he not teaching us accurate information. The quizzes and the homeworks are extremely hard and he expect us to teach ourself which is not OK.

Comment:
I have never been more confused in a class in my entire college career. There was little to no direction in the class material, and students were expected to teach themselves 99% of the material outside of class, and yet what we were expected to know was not communicated. Tests and quizzes were extremely long and difficult. Overall horrendous.

Comment:
Have to agree with most of the other comments. He doesnt believe in communicating outside of class, lectures are incomprehensible ramblings and he does not specify what to study for exams. He once put a question on an exam from a chapter we hadnt even covered yet and didn't change the scoring even after the average was a 47.

Comment:
Firstly, I just want everyone to know I have never left a rate on here before, but this man has compelled me to. Pros: He is extremely awkward and makes weird jokes Cons: He does not know how to teach. He rambles about things that don't have to do with chemistry. He does not give you office hours for help. He does not care if you understand.

Comment:
I do not understand how he has such a low rating. He GIVES you the answers to the tests. The homework, which he gives you the answers to, is pretty much on the test. If he actually tested you on everything he taught in class this class would be much harder. He is also pretty cool and does int. research.

I don't know why everyone is hating on Giner he is definitely not the worst professor here and is pretty funny and really nice if you actually talk to him. He does get confused a lot during the lectures over little things but still definitely knows what he is doing.

Comment:
You have to pick through his lectures for what's necessary, but he does teach the material. He tells you exactly what is on quizzes, homeworks can be difficult (but only 5 questions per chapter), and he tests for your overall knowledge on the main topics of each chapter. I would go to TAs or friends with any questions though...

Comment:
Worst teacher I have ever had interaction with. Cannot teach the course material with clarity. Doesn't want to be bothered. Has no communication with his TA's. Doesn't care at all. Senseless rambling are his lectures. to fix his poor quality of being a teacher, he gives a giant curve. Not a great addition to the school. Needs to go

Takes pride in making his course impossible- boosts his self esteem. hands down, worst teacher Ive EVER had- this will be my only grade below a C+ in all of my college career.. and I still know NOTHING about Ochem.

Oh my god is he awful. Nonsensical rants about whatever he feels like, no rhyme or reason, clearly a professer because it is required that he teach a class. Same goes when he does Organic Chemistry lab. Big "0"

Comment:
Yeah he knows his stuff, but what good is it if he can't communicate it to anyone? He has an odd sense of humor and doesn’t believe in a curve, not a good quality for O-chem.
