Tutoring Schedules

As MESA/STEM students at AHC it is very important that your academics are top priority.  Transferring to university will be significantly easier if you earn the best grades that you possibly can in your courses.  The extra efforts you can make every week to maximize your opportunities to earn high marks in your classes will pay off for you in the end.

Poor grades result in loss of priority registration, scholarship, internship, and access to class enrollment.  We hope you do not put yourself in that position.

The MESA and STEM Centers are here to help!  We provide STEM course tutoring every week day throughout the day as well as Review Sessions and Organized Study Groups.  Studies show that students who regularly participate in these services do significantly better academically than students who chose not to take part.

Review Sessions, Organized Study Groups, and tutoring schedules are posted in both centers and on our website. Review sessions and organized study groups are offered in conjunction with core STEM courses in math, computer science, biology, physics, engineering and chemistry.

Sessions and study groups are weekly one to two hour cooperative learning sessions. Designed to enhance student understanding, they feature peer-facilitated group work on problems at or above the level of course instruction. Small-group activities are directed by peer educators called facilitators. These sessions and study groups are designed based on research showing that cooperative methods (as opposed to an individual, competitive approach to learning) promote higher grades, greater persistence, deeper comprehension, more enjoyment in learning, and more positive attitudes toward academic work. 

You may review the schedule of session offerings as well as our tutor availability below.

Take good care of your academic health and remember:
Tutoring is a vitamin, not an aspirin. Engage in it on a regular basis to maintain your academic health; not just when you are in academic pain.

Ivan Lucatero
Cal Poly SLO, Aerospace Engineering

I excelled in math and science in school, so engineering was the right fit and I just had to figure out how to get it done. Throughout high school, I took courses at Allan Hancock College (AHC), and graduated as my high school valedictorian. I then attended AHC in search of a smooth transition to a university. I was able to take my lower division engineering courses and form a great relationship with my professors. While at AHC, I received multiple scholarships form the Allan Hancock Foundation, Santa Barbara Foundation, and MESA-NSF Scholarship. I then attended California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo, to pursue an aerospace engineering degree. After just one year at Cal Poly, I was accepted into one of the most prestigious internship programs that NASA offers, the Aeronautics Academy.
