Tufts University: Frances Sze-Ling Chew - Biology - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Frances Sze-Ling Chew | BIO014L - ORGANISMS & POPULATIONS | Biology2006-02-27

Review:
After reading such negative comments about Prof. Chew I really expected someone horrible--- but I loved her, she was very clear and organized and updated blackboard the day before so we had an outline of the notes for the next day's lectures. She was also really helpful outside of class and made an effort to know people's names. Overall and awesome teacher, I know the material was easier than Bio 13, but she made all the concepts so clear and as long as you went to her lectures you would do fine, the readings are good to read once for examples but not over and over like bio 13.

Workload:
For her part of Bio 14 there was a quiz, which only helped you not hurt you, and an exam which in the last years were really difficult but this year was really straightforward. Review sessions are really helpful and so is her writing workshop.

Frances Sze-Ling Chew | BIO014L - ORGANISMS & POPULATIONS | Biology2006-02-22

Review:
She is the worst professor I have ever had. I've never seen so many kids asleep in class before. Her analogies were ridiculous; she spent way too much time on the easy topics and not enough on the difficult ones. She's hard to understand, very confusing, and extremely boring.

Workload:
Readings were all over the place, she assigned the same pages of reading multiple times. The test wasn't too difficult, but her questions were nevertheless still confusing.

Frances Sze-Ling Chew | BIO014L - ORGANISMS & POPULATIONS | Biology2005-05-01

Review:
Prof Chew's reading assignments seemed to be all over the place, and so were her lectures. She was hard to follow and often went off on tangents, so it was hard to discern what was important or not. Exams had little to do with readings or class notes, and had a lot to do with the optional problem sets assigned 3 times per course.

Workload:
There was not much reading assigned, but it did not follow a logical path. Problem sets were optional, but recommended, and they were pretty difficult. The exam was difficult, but it was curved.
