Office hours staffed by the Teaching Assistants and Laboratory Assistants will be held Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays (see the Information/Policies for schedule and room numbers). Due to holidays and quizzes office hours may change during a given week.

If you have questions about the course or laboratories outside of normal office hour times, you are welcome to e-mail the staff, but posting your question on Piazza (privately if it contains your code). That will give you a better chance of getting a speedy response.

In addition to office hours for the class, extra help may be obtained from the following two resources. The MIT Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science provides one-on-one peer assistance in many basic undergraduate Course VI classes. During the first nine weeks of the term, you may request a tutor who will meet with you for a few hours a week to aid in your understanding of course material. You and your tutor arrange the hours that you meet, for your mutual convenience. This is a free service. More information is available on the HKN web page.

Tutoring is also available from the Tutorial Services Room (TSR) sponsored by the Office of Minority Education. The tutors are undergraduate and graduate students, and all tutoring sessions take place in the TSR (Room 12-124) or the nearby classrooms. For further information, go to this page.
