For section-specific information, please select the class from the subpages below.
Tutoring: The best time to come for extra help and/or missed assignments would be during the designated tutoring period immediately following school on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays, in room 304. I will inform you if a specific day's session will be held in a different location. If your schedule does not accommodate these times, please come see me outside of class or e-mail me and we will make individual arrangements.
Late Work: It is very important to develop the habit of doing your work on time. As such, I am loath to accept late work. Homework is due at the beginning of class. Homework handed in on the same day but after class will be docked 20 points. Homework handed in the following day will be docked 36. For major assignments such as papers, projects, and presentations, the grade will drop by 12 points for each day it is late.
Absences/Lateness: Whether excused or not, you will be responsible for making up missed work. I recommend e-mailing me ahead of time with any planned absences, and planning to stay late for tutoring when you return to make up all classwork and homework.
