In-person Office Hours : I will be in the classroom to meet with students during the following hours. You can see me at 6:00-7:00PM on Wednesdays with an appointment. Please send an email request at least 2 Business days prior to your appointment. Electronic Office Hours : I will answer e-mail from students throughout the week, including days that I am not on campus. I view this time as office hours in the same sense as my in-person office hours, only held electronically. You can contact me any time by e-mail regarding class topics, assignments, or other academic matters. I try to check my e-mail every weekday, even when I am not on campus, although occasionally that is not possible. I also often check my e-mail on weekends. If you send me an e-mail, you will not get an immediate reply, put usually will receive one within 24 hours. If you need an immediate reply you should see me or call me during my in-person office hours.
