MESA Tutoring

MESA is an academic support program in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) that provides FREE weekly tutoring to everyone and other benefits to the program members. MESA tutors provide free peer tutoring and learning assistance in most lower-division academic subjects within the School of Science & Technology. This tutoring service is available to all SSU students. Available starting Monday, February 7! We are pleased to offer in-person & virtual drop-ins and appointments. For in-person services, please meet your tutor in Darwin Lobby.   

If you need help with the Zoom web & video conferencing app, please visit SSU (virtual) IT Help Desk or see the MESA Tutoring Zoom Set Up 101 guide.

STEMbytes

Don't know what to ask a tutor? Need to study STEM smarter? Check out one of our STEMbytes and get advice from a MESA member. A STEMbyte is a "byte" sized (15-minute introduction) to a new study tip or tool, concept, or experience applicable to STEM majors. Ask a tutor about their past STEMbyte or when the next one is. In the meantime, check out our Youtube Playlist to see previous STEMbytes!
