I never had to take biology in high school. I don't know anything about it but I am in BIO 100 right now in college. We are studying all things that I am interested in, but I am not sure if my instructor gets what he is teaching. I am certain he has ADHD, so he is very hard to follow. We have been studying a lot about chemistry and molecules. (I never had to take CHem. in high school either). I ask the instructor questions and he doesn't plainly answer them and he goes off on 30 min spills about something completely different. I am failing this course. I am not the only one. Does anyone know of anything I can do to understand this stuff. It should be very simple for me. I pick up on things fairly easy. If you know of any websites or places that I can find exercises to learn this, I would be so grateful. Thanks TA fam :)
I would feel bad about complaining. It really isn't that he is a mean man, he is just not effective... especially for me. He doesn't care to help much either. I'd feel better about a complaint if he was an asshole or something along those lines.
We do get to fill out evaluation forms at the end of each semester for every instructor. I will be sure to give my feedback. This sucks, though, because most students have dropped the class and won't be able to fill out the evaluation forms.
I plan on attending his tutor/study group tomorrow. It may not help much because he is the tutor, but maybe he will give me some extra credit work. I wish I could just understand the material. It would help me a lot in the long run. If I fail the course and have to re-take it, I don't see that as too bad of a thing. It will give me another shot to actually get it. I will soon have to take courses that this class is a pre-req. for, so I really need to know it thoroughly.
