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.
