Extra Help

I am available for extra help most days:

  • Before school from 7:00 to 7:20 AM
  • During the day when I am free
  • After school until 3:00 PM.

Please check with me if you plan on staying after to make sure I don't have a meeting or other obligation. Faculty meetings are usually Wednesday after school.

You can email questions at any time:

You should not expect an immediate answer after 10 PM or while I am teaching.
