My students will be working on 90 minutes of math each week. The scheduled time for Math is Mondays and Thursdays from 9:30 am to 10:15 am. During those times, students should be working on the provided math material. *Please note, this does not mean I will be live teaching.* This is just so students have a schedule to follow to help them stay organized.

During those two "class times", I will be available via email if a student is in need of assistance. I will also have office hours on Fridays from 1 pm to 2:45 pm if a students would like a to schedule a time to virtually meet with me. The details for this will be coming soon.
