Office hours

Students are welcome to and encouraged to attend faculty office hours, or email me for an appointment for assistance on course topics.


The Piazza discussion forum provides an additional opportunity for help. If you have questions outside of office hours, you can post the question to the class and/or privately to the instructor through Piazza. This allows students to see common problems and to also engage in discussions about course topics. Students are expected to regularly check the discussion page and use this in place of emailing the instructor directly about course content and labs. In addition, students are expected to follow the posting policy outlined on Piazza. For example, you should not post solutions to homework/lab questions and your post will be deleted if it is inappropriate. Students are encouraged to respond to other student's questions as this will form part of your participation grade.

Please also review the guide for asking questions on Piazza.


If you are in need of additional assistance, and have already used the services above, a small number of student tutoring hours may be arranged with approval from the instructor and pending tutor availability.

Academic Accommodations

If you believe that you need accommodations for a disability, please contact the Office of Student Disability Services (Parrish 113W) or email studentdisabilityservices@swarthmore.edu to arrange an appointment to discuss your needs. As appropriate, the Office will issue students with documented disabilities a formal Accommodations Letter. Since accommodations require early planning and are not retroactive, please contact the Office of Student Disability Services as soon as possible. For details about the accommodations process, visit the Student Disability Service Website. You are also welcome to contact us privately to discuss your academic needs. However, all disability-related accommodations must be arranged through the Office of Student Disability Services. To receive an accommodation for a course activity you must have an official Accommodations Letter and you need to meet with me to work out the details of your accommodation at least two weeks prior to any activity requiring accommodations.
