I gladly meet with students & faculty via Zoom throughout the year. To set up an appointment, e-mail me to suggest days & time of day that will work best for you. For distance/online learners, and for on-campus students in distress, I will happily take your call on my personal cell phone 479-409-0021 and walk you through your task. This includes all day and evenings Mon-Sat, Sunday nights & most holidays. I can also email you suggestions in a back & forth manner , to get you "unstuck." Put me to work to keep your coursework, research, and career on track.
