You may be seen as more sincere if you set up an appointment to talk to her face-to-face. That's what I would do unless we were talking about a very urgent matter.

Do stuff in person. Avoid putting stuff like that in writing. ;)

If the instructor gave out the email address at the beginning of the course and said email was an acceptable means of communication, I would email to set up the appt., but I do think you need to have the meeting in person.

I agree with you.

Yeah, I'd say it's fine to set up the appt in email if your instructor is okay, but definitely discuss your concerns in person.

Speaking from experience....I would definitely speak to the instructor in person!! No matter how hard you try to express your self in written word, it does not have the emotion/feeling that you wish to convey. The simplest of words can be misuderstood, and you cannot see the expression on someone face when you email them. GMO

but i also agree with caliotter3.

Me too.

It's perfectly acceptable to send a brief email stating you'd like to meet with him/her & the purpose of your meeting (1 or 2 sentences only).

That way the instructor has a little time to prep & gather their thoughts before you even walk-in the door.

More effective use of both your times.
