NOTE: Read the policies on
office hours, below, before you come to see me.
Mondays: 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm
Wednesdays: 1:30 pm to 2:45 pm
hours, but only under very special
may be arranged by talking to me after class
on Office Hours
- 1) If it is important (yes, from your
point of view) that you see me as soon as possible, you
are ALWAYS--repeat: ALWAYS--welcome to come to one of my
classes and walk in or wait for the class to end. If you
walk in, I will stop the class proceedings and I will
give you my undivided attention. To find out what
classes I am teaching, check the school class schedule
via your MYUB page.
- 2) Students, current as well as former
students, are ALWAYS (repeat: ALWAYS) welcome to come
and see me during my office hours--even without prior
notification! (I owe my job as a teacher to you;
therefore, I am here for you amidst my other mandatory
work commitments--e.g. research. However, however, item
8 below also applies!)
- 3) If you are in one of my courses, make sure
you have checked all the information available about the
course on the class home page (announcements, syllabus
packet, etc.) before
coming to see me. And always, always bring paper and pen
- 4) There will be no office hours
when classes, as per university calendar, are not in
- 5) After the last day of classes, the hours
above will change.
- 6) You are ALWAYS welcome to bring an escort
with you (parent, grandparent, peer, friend, and so on).
- 7) For the duration of the time you are in my
office I will give you my undivided attention and I will
expect the same from you; therefore, all your electronic
devices must be switched off and in your bag--otherwise
I may prematurely cut short our meeting.
- 8) All e-mails you send me must
have an appropriate subject heading and must begin
and end with this salutation and closure: Dear Dr.
.... and Sincerely.... Otherwise, you may
not get a response. (In case those who raised you
did not teach you this: democracy and freedom does
NOT mean a license to be discourteous! Or an
entitlement to an unearned
sense of entitlement. Besides, you are not my long
lost cousin from Timbuktu! See my policy on
e-mails in the syllabus packet.)
