Email Information

E-mail to Instructor

I receive many emails and some require a response, while others do not. The college has a spam service and I accumulate over 100 emails in the spam folder every day.

If you require a response, please indicate in your message.


For those of you that send me an email, I would like you, as students, must have the 4 items below.

1) Subject line:

This should reflect the meaning of your email. Do not just 'click' reply.
 Emails with a blank subject line will be deleted without reading.

 Examples: Math 212 - Question about assignments
 The subject, Math, never goes to the spam folder.

2) Start of the email:
Salutation, or greeting.

Example: Mr. Tsuji; Hello; Professor;

3) Body of email.

Short message that has proper grammar and spelling. Make your English teacher proud. Use the spell checker.
 No abbreviation, or short cuts in spelling. Leave the abbreviations, short cuts for your friends, not your college instructor.

4) Bottom of email:

Name - both first and last
 It helps to identify the sender
Example: Thank you
 George Burns, math 210, TTh 6:30

Examples of emails that I have received !

NOTE:  If the FROM line was deleted, can you tell who the email came from?

Hi Mr. Tsuji,
You want us to write down the assignments from my mathlab on our notebook paper and turn them into you during class, correct?
