Best Practices

Meeting up with a TA/SA or professor 1:1 can seem intimidating, but that is what they are here for! Here are a couple things to keep in mind when meeting up with them in office hours:

  • Look up when the office hours are
  • Look up where the office hours are (they are usually in a room different from the lecture hall)

Before you go, make sure to...

  • Review course material
  • Read through class notes
  • Bring specific questions

Once you arrive...

  • Greet the professor or TA/SA
  • Introduce yourself
  • Explain the problem

And remember to keep asking questions! It can be intimidating not understanding a topic the first time around, but the only way to learn it is to ask for help. You've got this.
