Office Hours for Fall 2017 are scheduled at UC Berkeley, Evans 713 or 714 as below

  • Tuesdays: 5:15-5:45pm, 6:45-7:45pm (with a few exceptions when we are teaching at the same time)
  • Thursdays: 5:15-5:45pm, 7:15-7:45pm
  • starting August 31, 2017

Reserve emails only for emergencies, not convenience.

  • Questions can be answered in person during office hours at Evans 714.
  • Please remember, emergencies are not caused by the lack of organization, preparation, or diligence.
  • Between 5:45-6:15pm on Tuesdays: this is the time when we prepare the classrooms and the materials for the circle. This is our priority. We will not answer any administrative questions during this time frame.

At the circle, we direct most resources to the academic quality of the program. Therefore, we expect participants and families to be organized and respect our minimal admin staff's workload. When you have important questions, you need to invest the time and effort in coming to office to have them answered. Most questions can be answered through the information posted here on this website.
