Hoch, Hannah
[PSYC BC1105] Psychology of Learning (w/ or w/o lab)

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Let me just preface this by saying that I am writing this review while in her class. Literally.
Professor Hoch tries hard, yes, but she fails miserably. She does not explain things clearly, and she often makes mistakes. There are also many instances where she cannot answer questions that aren't already answered explicitly on her Powerpoint slides. Basically she ends up making things more complicated than they are, or confusing the students. I prefer just reading the book and learning from my lab instructor (the amazing Professor Taylor).
The class is fairly easy though. 2 midterms and a final, all outlined by Professor Hoch. Some extra credit is available. I cannot attest to her availability because I have never sought her help.
