The core of MESA’s academic support services is the program’s team of dedicated peer tutors. Student peer tutors are often the first point of contact for new MESA members and bring to their work a balanced responsibility to assist students as a peer mentor, class tutor, and resource guide. MESA peer tutors are trained by MESA staff and work in collaboration with the faculty and staff in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics departments.
MESA peer tutors work as SRJC student employees under the direction of the MESA Program Coordinator. MESA students are encouraged to apply their expanding content knowledge and leadership skills to becoming a peer tutor. The experience is especially rewarding to tutors and students alike because the collaboration not only strengthens academic skills, but MESA and new college friendships.
Each semester new tutoring positions open in MESA, and MESA students are given first hiring consideration, since they are involved and know the program. All tutorial services take place in the MESA Center, are open to all SRJC students, and are free.
