Student Support

BUA is committed to continuing to offer the following student support resources virtually. Contact Ms. Evans, Ms. Weiskopf, and Ms. Mansour with specific questions. BUA will be working with BU Disability & Access Services to ensure that all students are able to access and participate in the opportunities available as we move school operations online.

Academic Block and Office Hours

Teachers will hold office hours each week either during the regular class meeting time or during other announced times (such as academic block). Teachers will create a Zoom meeting during these office hours and share the time and link with students. Students should be sure to use these times to clarify their understanding with teachers and advisors – they should not let themselves drift along and get more and more confused.

Peer Tutoring

Peer tutor/tutee pairs should check in with one another about their plans (Zoom meetings or another virtual platform mutually agreed upon at a fixed weekly time) and report back to Dr. Larash.  You are welcome to email Dr. Larash or use this form.

Writing Center

To make an appointment with Dr. Larash in the Writing Center, please email her. To make an appointment with Dr. Martinez, please use this link. Prepare for the meeting by planning a specific focus for the discussion and, perhaps, being ready with specific questions. Be ready to share a document via Google Docs, if necessary. His email address is cmarti19@bu.edu. Meetings will now occur through Zoom. The link to the Zoom meeting will be in the signup confirmation.

Math and Science Help (MASH)

MASH will have posted weekly hours, as well as availability by appointment. Email Mr. Dent to schedule an appointment or ask a math question.

Proctored Open Study Halls (POSH)

The BU undergraduate tutors who administered POSH are now available on an appointment basis.  Please email Ms. Evans if you are interested.

Learning Specialist

To make an appointment with Ms. Mansour, please email her. Please note that Ms. Mansour is able to meet with students via Zoom outside her previous hours. Feel free to suggest morning, afternoon or evening hours that may work for you, Monday-Friday, and Ms. Mansour will do her best to accommodate.

School Counselor

BUA School Counselor Stacey Weiskopf will be offering open office hours daily, Monday-Friday 1:00-3:00 p.m. The Zoom link to join Ms. Weiskopf’s office hours is here. Appointments are available by request as well. Students should email Ms. Weiskopf to inquire about scheduling a meeting outside of office hours.
