Getting Help:
Please never ever feel guilty about asking me for help, it is normal to become confused and I am happy to help. The primary method for asking a question is via e-mail, but you can also send me your phone # and good times to call, and we can talk about your problem. I do not check my messages much during the summer, so I don't recommend you call my office.

If you would like to meet with me in person I encourage you to come by and see me in my office.

When asking for help online don't forget that if you e-mail me you must include "CS 50.12" in the subject line, include your first and last name, the section # for your class, and then describe the problem as specifically as possible The more detailed your question, the easier it is to answer.

Email Response Policy
I check email daily M-F and at lest one day on the wekends. I will attempt to answer email questions within 48 hrs.

Student Conduct
To review the SRJC Student Conduct Standards visit this web site http://www.santarosa.edu/for_students/rules-regulations/student-conduct.shtml

Email etiquette
Here is a list of some basic guidelines:

  • Email can easily be misinterpreted; be brief, polite, patient, and never send an email when angry.
  • Always include a pertinent subject title for the message so that the reader can quickly locate the message and determine its importance.
  • Never assume your email messages are private or that they will be read by only yourself or the recipient.
  • Capitalize words only to highlight an important point or to distinguish a title or heading. Capitalizing whole words is termed as SHOUTING!
  • Be professional in speaking of others. Email is easily forwarded.

It is rude to forward personal email without the author's permission
