MESA Peer Tutoring & Supplemental Instruction

Our Services

The backbone of MESA’s academic assistance is our MESA Student Peer Tutors. Peer tutors are available Monday-Thursday to assistance in the MESA Study Center.

The MESA team of Peer Tutors is composed of well-prepared SRJC science, technology, engineering and mathematics transfer students who have successfully completed the course they are tutoring. Our Peer Tutors are all SRJC STEM students, most are part of MESA themselves.  MESA tutors abide by the philosophies and priorities of The National Tutoring Association and strive  to assist students and or direct a student to an appropriate campus resource. 

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