## Office Hours Spring 2020:

MWF 12:10-12:55PM (Yali's Cafe, Stanley Hall)
MW 3:10-4:00PM (Evans 713)

## With enrollment questions:

Contact Jennifer Pinney or Thomas Brown at the Math Department: during their office hours, in person (NOT on email!) if you want your question to be
answered quickly.
Write to enrollment@math.berkeley.edu but be aware that lots of people will be writing to this email address, so you are better off
going directly in person to Jennifer Pinney or Thomas Brown.
Do ** NOT** contact the instructor, as I have no impact on enrollment in the classes. Writing to me with enrollment questions
will indicate that you have not read my personal website, which is the first thing you need to do before deciding whether to
contact or not an instructor with a particular question. My email is only for emergencies. My email is NOT for routine or non-emergency questions.

## Instructions for Requesting a Recommendation Letter

Read carefully and follow strictly these
Instructions.

There is a one-month period AFTER:
1. I have received all information from you and from your GSI(s);
2. And all on-line links for letter submission have been sent to me by the programs;
3. And BEFORE I submit the letter.
Thus, start the process at least 6 weeks before my deadline for the letter. Note that I will write no recommendation letters during finals periods and breaks: summer (May 1-August 31), winter (Dec 1-Jan 22), or spring break. Do NOT count the
time in these periods as part of the one-month period above.
