The crudest curriculum vitae crows and flaps its wings in a style
peculiar to the undersigner.
I doubt whether you can even give your telephone
number without giving something of yourself.

To make an appointment, please start at by going to my office-hours youcanbook.me page --- read the instructions there carefully. (Yes, during the school year, I do hold regular office hours! But I'm doing so using this appointment system rather than drop-in so that everyone gets individual time. I generally have at least two hours every "regular" week, so if you see little or no available time, that probably means other people booked the timeslots first.)
