Mr. Mason's Availability     ««


I am available by appointment in my classroom for one-on-one student help and/or conferences before school, after school, during my "prep" period, or during lunch. If you have not made an appointment, I will still attempt to accommodate you, but I cannot guarantee I will always be available. I can be reached at school by telephone (626.575.2306 x1218), or you may simply come to my classroom.


How to Contact Mr. Mason After Hours      ««


Begin by trying to contact me at school; I sometimes stay late and you might find me in the classroom or in the office. If that doesn't work, my personal email address is b4genesis@verizon.net; I usually check my personal email sometime between the time I get home from school and 9:00 p.m. If it is a true emergency, I can also be reached by cell phone at 626.419.5295 — but do not abuse the privilege: If I get prank calls, I will simply stop answering your telephone calls and I will withdraw my offer.


Email Etiquette:


If you decide to send an email, make sure you identify yourself as a Columbia student in the subject line, where you will also enter your name. Example: If your name is Jose Zarate, then you will write "Columbia Student Jose Zarate" in the subject line. If you do not do this I will delete your email without even reading it — This is one of my precautions to protect myself from computer viruses and other nasty critters.
