Students had the following things to say about him:
Dan Mitchell is a chemistry GOD! He teaches what you need to learn in order to succeed later on. What sets him apart from other professors, especially at BC is the fact he is so passionate for his students to succeed. This includes returning e-mails on a Saturday, giving out his personal cell # all just to explain any questions. He also lifts!
Dr. Mitchell is legendary. Somehow he makes learning Chem interesting and fun. He answers every question clearly and with interest. I could ask him Calculus questions and he would help me out with no hesitation. Dan is also the type to not directly answer your question, but to make you answer it yourself. He's the best. Take his class.
If you are taking Chemistry at BC, you have to take Dan. Crystal clear lectures, tons of resources on the course site, and lots of office hours. If you're stuck on something, drop by his office, he's almost always there. Really LOVES answering questions! I took the whole GChem sequence with him, and I would recommend others to do the same.
