PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
The MESA Tutoring Program is a service for students traditionally underrepresented in STEM fields who request additional support with homework and classwork. Our study skills program is designed to help kids in grades 5-12 build great habits, necessary skills, complete assignments, and receive additional mentoring and support. Even if your child is a really good student, we’ve found that establishing great study habits early is the secret to making a big impact in school, from higher grades to greater confidence. Students can get help with specific subject areas (Mathematics, English, Science, and Social Sciences) or with general study skills such as homework management, organization, and test preparation. MESA Tutoring is hosted by the Multi-Ethnic Engineering and Science Association (MESA) and partners with the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) student organizations. The program collaborates with the Iowa City Community School District (ICCSD). The program is coordinated and funded by the College of Engineering, Outreach, Admissions, Scholarships and Inclusion Services (OASIS) program. Addtional support come from the Chief Diversity Office and the Center for Diversity and Enrichment.
