Office Hours

Spring 2022

I'm happy to see you! I'll be doing office hours in one of the labs in Olin; which lab we'll be in will depend on the day.

My office hours times

My office hours will generally, but not always, be:

  • Mondays, 12:30 pm - 1:40pm: Olin 308

  • Tuesdays, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm: Olin 308

  • Thursdays, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm: Olin 308

  • Fridays, 9:40 am - 10:40 am: Olin 304 (note the alternative location)

Occasionally, meetings pop up for which I need to move, shorten, or cancel my office hours, and so the Google calendar linked below has a more accurate representation of what my office hours actually are. The hours above are a guideline; the hours below are what is actually going on for a given week.

If you are unable to make my office hours in-person due to quarantine/isolation and need to reach me by Zoom, contact me and let me know what's up, and we'll work something out.

How to prepare

In general, you don't need to prepare for office hours at all. Feel free to stop by to talk or to bring whatever questions you have. Office hours are hopefully a collaborative session where you can work with me and also with other students in helping to solve whatever problems you're working on.

That said, it can nonetheless be super helpful if you are prepared and ready to go with whatever question you have. If you will be showing me code on a laptop, please have it ready to go when you come in. We'll use the projector in the classroom to put up your code so we can see it easily, so we can just plug your laptop in so we can both look at it.

If you'll be coming to me for help on debugging code for a class you're taking with me, I'll likely ask you what you've already tried. So in this case, at least be ready to tell me what you've already tried to do to help understand the bug that you're facing.
