Hi! This is kind of embarrassing but this is my second time taking chem 14a. I came to UCLA not knowing what I wanted to do, and I learned quickly that science was not my passion. Although I'm now happily a north campus major, I wanted to improve my GPA and retaking chem was what I needed to do, so here I am :) I was nervous and embarrassed and really thought I would fail miserably again but I have really appreciated the time I have had in chem this summer, especially you enthusiasm for our success. So thank you very much for this second chance :)

Hi Bella,

Thank you for sharing.

I do put much effort into encouragement and organize extensive additional support for students in my classes.

More importantly, excellent to hear you did not give up!
:-)

A lesson I hope will stay with you for life.

Dear Dr. Lavelle,
I know the class has barely started but I just want to take a moment to appreciate the little dance you do to your presentation music before class begins. It is wholesome and precious and makes my day. Thank you.

Dear Professor,
I truly appreciate the way that you are always so positive and smile a lot during class, which makes chem go by so fast, especially because sometimes these concepts may be difficult to understand and grasp. I also find it so nice that you give out so many opportunities to get help, like the peer review sessions, office hours, etc, so there is no excuse for not getting help if we need it, as so many hours are being allotted purely furor benefit.

Thank you Dr. Lavelle for making the concepts super easy to understand. You are a wonderful teacher. With your lectures, I was able to grasp new concepts in a very short amount of time. Thank you!

Speaking as someone who has taken 14A before and didn't do so well, Dr. Lavelle you really make these concepts so interesting and easy to understand. Your passion seeps through every lecture making your students feel as passionate to learn as you are to teach! Truly a one-of-a-kind professor :)

Thank you Dr. Lavelle for all of your instruction. Your passion for not only the subject of chemistry but the well-being of your students is palpable. Thank you for applying chemistry principles to a lab setting in order for us to understand the importance of every chemistry concept we learn.

I wanted to say thank you to Dr. Lavelle for creating such helpful video modules for each topic in this course. Lots of times in class it's hard for me to comprehend everything that is being taught because I don't have enough time to process each point. However, the videos allow me to go through the material at my own pace with really clear explanations of all of the concepts. I would not be able to make it throughout this course, or understand chemistry without them!
Thank You!

I can completely relate to this. I took chemistry my junior year and was rusty on the material I learned. But with the modules provided, I was able to refresh my memory and learn new concepts at my own pace. Thank you Dr. Lavelle for taking the time to give us the resources to succeed.

Also, thank you for providing so many hours of help throughout the week for chemistry. It was very helpful and I feel like not many teachers really set aside time for that.

Dear Dr. Lavelle,

Thank you for putting in so much effort in helping all of us succeed. I learned a lot in your class and I actually find chemistry interesting now. My experience was chemistry in high school was not the best but this class has definitely changed my mind. Thank you for all the review sessions you put together and all the other resources that were available to us.

Dr. Lavelle,
Thank you so much for teaching me all that you have this year. I have learned so much and have gotten a much better understanding of Chemistry through this course than I have with any high school course I have taken. You are so clear and through with your lectures and exams. I absolutely love chemistry and no have such a greater appreciation for this course. I cannot wait to take 14B next quarter and be taught by you again.

Dear Dr. Lavelle,

Thank you for teaching 14A this quarter. I really learned a lot through your lectures and modules. Not a lot of professors have as many resources for their students as you do and it was extremely helpful it contributing to my learning experience. All the workshops and review sessions helped me improve in my comprehension of chemistry.

Thank you for a great quarter and I hope to have you for 14B in the future!

Dr. Lavelle,
I hated chemistry before your class but you made the topics fun to learn and easy to understand. There were so many resources if we needed help too, which is something a lot of other classes don't have. This was my first quarter at UCLA and I'm so glad I took this class. I'm so excited for next quarter with you in 14b!
Thank you!

Dear Dr. Lavelle,

The quarter just started, but you've already introduced us to so many resources and have made access to help readily available. With all my other classes, this constant makes me so much less stressed.

Thank you so much!

I know it's early on in the quarter, but I can already tell that Dr. Lavelle is going to make a significant impact on my time at UCLA, specifically this quarter. He just makes the material so digestible and I truly appreciate his approach. He also seems to WANT us to succeed. Thank you already!
