My Grading Policy

Journal Reflection 20%
Classwork 30%
Exam 50%

I enter grades for an assignment when I have 90% turned in.

This allows the students who were absent or needed extra time to finish the opportunity to turn it in.

Most grades are entered by every Friday, unless the above situations apply.

 

My Tutoring Hours

Tuesdays/Thursdays  3:00pm - 4:00pm

By appointment is also available.
