MESA Peer Tutoring & Supplemental Instruction

Our Services

The backbone of MESA’s academic assistance are the Peer Tutors and SI Peer Leaders who are always on hand when you need assistance in the MESA Study Center.

The MESA team of Peer Tutors and SI Peer Leaders is composed of well-prepared SRJC science, technology, engineering and mathematics transfer students who have successfully completed the course they are tutoring or leading a peer supplemental instruction session in. We strive to ensure our Peer Tutors and SI Peer Leaders are well prepared to assist you in a transfer level math or science course.

Our Peer Tutors and SI Peer Leaders are all SRJC STEM students, most are part of MESA themselves in order to foster communication and team work among all MESA students.

If you want assistance with a math or science course, drop by the MESA center, located on the 3rd floor of the Bertolini Building.
