Thank you Dr. Lavelle! I greatly appreciate the immense effort you and all the TAs and UAs have put into making this course very straightforward and easily accessible to all your students. I can't wait for next quarter!

Hi Dr. Lavelle!!
I genuinely enjoyed your lectures so much and wish so badly I could have taken this class in person. I am so grateful for all the resources you set up for us, as well as the TAs and UAs who worked so hard, and I am looking forward to 14B next quarter!!

Thank you, Dr. Lavelle, for all the work you put in to ensure we had the resources necessary to succeed in this class. I can't tell you how much I appreciated all the review sessions and office hours that were available. Honestly, this was a very enjoyable class and I look forward to it next quarter

Thank you for making this quarter possible during these interesting times. As much as it is difficult for students, I know it must be difficult for professors as well. I appreciate all the hard work you put in to making things work. Thank you.

Thank you Dr. Lavelle! You were my favorite professor this quarter and I'm so excited for 14B (and I was never this excited about chemistry before this class). I hope you have a great break!

Dr. Lavelle,
Thank you for taking the time to prepare the many hours of resources throughout this quarter, and I am glad you are the instructor for 14B next quarter. I really appreciate you adding the 10 points and considering all the added difficulties due to the online format. I hope you have a lovely break and I look forward to the little music intros in your 14B lectures!

Professor Lavelle,
Even though we didn't get to have live lectures, I appreciate the effort you put into each class and your attempt to simulate the lecture hall using Bruincast. And let's not forget about the amount of office hours and learning sessions you arranged to fit just about anyone's schedule! I think Chem 14A was the most impactful course of my first quarter as a freshmen. Chem 14A is where I learned to develop my study habits and challenge myself beyond basic memorization. Thank you for EVERYTHING and see you in 14B (even though you can't see us :( ).

Professor Lavelle,
This has been one of the few classes that I have taken at UCLA, even including in-person classes, that has provided the amount of support and extra time going over topics outside of class. All of the resources put in place to help us succeed, including the many review hours and TA/UA sessions are very much appreciated. Thank you for your dedication to your students on this class and I look forward to taking Chem 14B with you next quarter.

Thank you to Dr. Lavelle for providing an easygoing atmosphere for learning chemistry. I'm not really all that enthusiastic about chemistry myself, but I'm glad you didn't make chemistry a taxing experience to learn. I am especially grateful to the music and the puns you would scatter in your presentations.

Thank you Dr. Lavelle for making Chemistry something to look forward to over the past few weeks during my first quarter in college! I feel like the atmosphere that was created made me happy to learn despite not having in-person classes and I definitely feel like we created a community that could ask questions and learn without feeling lost.

Hi Professor Lavelle,

Thank you so much for this quarter! We're lucky to have a professor who's passionate about his course and tries his best to help students understand the material. Especially with everything online, I really appreciate you arranging review sessions and other virtual interactions for communication and help. See you next quarter in Chemistry 14B!

Thank you,
Joanne Yuh

Honestly, I had no experience in chemistry since high school ended and even then the education in high school chemistry was not that great so providing many tutoring hours and step up sessions was very helpful. I am very grateful to have a lot more background and introduction to chemistry now because of you. I really appreciate how many resources you had laid out for us even during a pandemic.

Dear Prof. Lavelle,

Thank you for explaining the concepts so well. You did a great job talking about the links to further knowledge in physiology, pharmacology, medicine, etc. Also, thank you for your support during this time of difficulties.

I wanted to start off by saying this course was frightening for me at the beginning, considering I did not remember much from high school chem. The structure for this class was everything I needed, not only to review, but also to assimilate and appreciate the limitless amount of incoming knowledge from this course. I can say without a doubt, this has been my absolute most challenging class this quarter, but I am glad I was able to learn from one of the best Professors at UCLA. You've made approaching chemistry fun! Never a dull moment! THANK YOU DR. LAVELLE! <3

Hi Dr. Lavelle!! Thank you for the fun chem music and chem jokes at the end of each lecture :)) I really appreciated the fact that you tried to record the lectures in the lecture hall to let us experience what it would be like at school. Thank you so much for being our teacher!!

Dear Dr. Lavelle,
I would like to thank you for a truly amazing quarter and for providing me with an excellent introduction to science at a collegiate level. My high school did not have any AP, IB, or Honors Chem courses, so exploring concepts and phenomena is as great of detail as we did was an utterly fascinating experience. I look forward to taking 14B with you next quarter and plan to pursue a deeper understanding of the world around me and many of the chemical processes upon which I depend in the process, in addition to preparing myself for a career. Please keep up the outstanding work!
