Going to professor's office hours every week?
Hi everyone. I have a social etiquette question!
I've been growing really close to my French professor, and especially in the past week or so, we've been having more one-on-one chats about French or just about life. I've been studying French independently from online sites and other textbooks, and I go to her office every Friday before class during her office hours to ask her questions about what I've been learning. (once you start getting into the specifics of the grammar, there's a lot that you need a live person to help you with!!)
Do you think this is too much? She doesn't seem to mind, and she's actually been helping me with personal issues, too. (she's not that much older than me, but it sometimes feels like she's mothering me haha) Also, she only teaches one small class at my small university, and I've never seen anyone else waiting for her while we chat. (then again, I have her for an intro course and I'm a freshman, so maybe no one else really cares?)
I guess I just feel guilty for going to see her every week even though I stay after class sometimes and walk out with her. Do you think she minds my presence and genuine (almost obsessive) interest in the subject? She seems to be taking a mentoring interest in me, but I just don't know how the whole thing works!!
