Office hours.

My office hours are on Thu from 5pm to 6pm at the MLC and on Tu and Thu from 8:15pm- to 9:15pm at my office (2-114, second floor of the Math Building; don't you know where the Math Bld is? Click here for a map). Recall, however, that the MLC is a place for helping students; hence, you may come to the MLC any time you want and certainly you will find a tutor there to help you.

If this schedule does not work for you, send me an email (disconzi@math.sunysb.edu) to set up an appointment.
