As a MESA/STEM student at AHC, it is very important that your academics are a 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 weekday, 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 choose not to take part.
Review Sessions, Organized Study Groups, and tutoring schedules are posted in both centers, and they can be accessed by clicking on the links below. Review Sessions and Organized Study Groups are offered in conjunction with core STEM courses in math, computer science, biology, physics, engineering and chemistry.
Review Sessions and Organized Study Groups are weekly one-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. Comparative research has shown that between individual and cooperative approaches towards learning, cooperation promotes higher grades, greater persistence, deeper comprehension, and more positive attitudes toward academic work.
Please review the following schedules.
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.
