Schedules

Review Sessions, Organized Study Groups,
and Tutoring Schedules

Review sessions and organized study groups are offered through the MESA Program in conjunction with core STEM courses in math, computer science, biology, physics 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 Program.  MESA 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 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 to go on to harder 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.

SPOTLIGHT

Jesus Vivar

Jesus Vivar
Computer Science Student

The first engineering class I took at Allan Hancock College was really challenging for me, but I thanked the counselor who showed me the way to the MESA program. There I was overwhelmed by all the resources offered and especially by all the students taking the same classes. Study groups with MESA students really made it easier for me to achieve. I am happy to say that I made it this far not only because of my determination to achieve a higher education, but also because of the wonderful people that I met at Hancock who encourage students to go the extra mile and accomplish their dreams.
