Preparing for a Meeting
I look forward to meeting with you!
To make sure we use our time together as efficiently as possible, please write up a quarter-to-half page summary of what we'll be discussing before we meet. I've found from experience that this results in a far more effective use of our time.
Here are some examples of what this could look like
- If you're having trouble understanding something we covered in class or a homework problem, prepare a concise summary that describes your problem and references the relevant slides or solutions. The process of doing this will often help you get much closer to the solution before we even meet.
- If you're meeting to set the terms of an independent study, prepare a short summary of what you'd like the study to involve, and how you'd like to be assessed. (You might also want to check out this page on how I do independent studies).
- If you're meeting to discuss careers in analytics prepare a summary of your past experiences, what you're hoping to find in your future career, and what you're hoping to get out of our meeting.
Once you've prepared this, please go to this page to schedule the meeting, and paste it there when asked. Please try and schedule the meeting in the first or last available slot on any given day, if at all possible. This link will allow you to schedule a 15 minute meeting - if you feel we'll need more than that, feel free to schedule two back-to-back sessions.
By default, assume our meeting will be on Zoom, at zoom.us/my/guetta. If you'll be on campus and would like to meet in person (which is always nicer!) select the "Uris 405B" option above. I'll respond to the meeting invite to let you know if that'll be possible or if we'll have to stick to zoom.
Looking forward to chatting!
