Notes:  I am often in my office and available to help other times besides those listed, so please stop by.  If you want to be guaranteed that I will be in my office, drop me an email ( and let's set up a time. I also answer questions asked via email.

Really, I want you to come to my office and/or email me when you are having difficulties! Office hours and Office appointments are a good place to come and get help on anything course related, whether it be for help with homework problems, clarifying concepts from class, questions about lab, etc.  Please take advantage of these opportunities anytime you feel like you might be struggling a bit (or even if you just want to come by and chat!).  It is always better to get help early rather than waiting; physics is a building block science, which means that each new topic typically depends on the previous topic.  Holes in early conceptual understanding will continue to surface (and probably spread) as you need to use that information.
