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.

Graduating high school with honors and realizing I did not have the monetary means to go off to a university like I had always dreamed about felt like a setback. Being at a community college, for my first semester, felt like a detriment to my education. Despite this I began to reach out to other students and was referred by a student to a program called MESA. MESA has shaped my educational career. MESA has provided me with opportunities I would have otherwise missed on my own, an opportunity to work with other like-minded majors who have since become like family. With this kind of strong foundation I have been able to excel in my science, mathematics, and engineering courses.
