Instructor Velasco:

Note: Instructor Velasco’s consulting hours aren’t limited to just homework questions. It’s also an opportunity to seek career advice, explore internship opportunities, discuss topics in computer science, get guidance on the course, and more. It is not just a space to receive help with the class but also for broader academic and professional conversations.

Visit Sakai to access this platform. Engage with professional tutors either instantly online or schedule a session at your convenience. This free service is available 24/7.

Disclaimer: Please be aware this is an external service. While I can’t vouch for each tutor’s credentials, they should possess knowledge of Python. However, they are not familiar with specific assignments from this class, so you may need to guide them through your task’s requirements. Approach this service with discernment and know that your session transcripts will be shared with me.

Make an Appointment With the Instructor or Teaching Associate

Fill out this form to request a meeting with either Instructor Velasco or Violette Walker to discuss any concerns you may have with the course or your progress. This is not meant to serve as help with class activities, but rather to reserve a time to discuss a personal concern you may have, big or small.
