Drop-in Tutoring Schedule and  Review Sessions/Organized Study Groups Schedule

Tutoring is a Vitamin not an asprin. Partake in tutoring and studying regularly so that you may excel!

Review sessions and organized study groups are offered through the MESA Program 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. MESA offers these sessions and study groups 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. 

Free tutoring is also available through the MESA/STEM Centers.  MESA/STEM tutors are students who have successfully completed the course (or in some situations are currently enrolled) in which they are tutoring.  It is particularly important for students who are struggling to get help from others in academic setting to seek out the help of a tutor as soon as possible so that they can excel. A classroom setting is typically not enough for students to learn all of the material that they need to know in order to pass a test or advance to higher classes. Academic tutoring from students at a higher grade level or experience in an academic setting can help to encourage and strengthen a student so that they do not fall behind.

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.
