Schedule and Tutor Information

Tutor Photo Page

Academic Excellence Workshops...are offered to accompany selected math, physics and engineering
courses each semester. They are strongly based on group interactions to build communication and community in the
context of the technical subject matter. The workshops each meet twice a week for two hours. They are not meant
to be drop-in sessions, although students whose schedules only allow them to attend one of the workshops will not be
turned away. Regular participation in these workshops have been shown to increase student performance a full grade
in the course.
SI Sessions...are offered through the ACCESS program to accompany selected biology and chemistry
courses each semester. These peer-led sessions help students develop critical problem-solving skills for chemistry
and biology. Many of them are held in the STEM Center.

Here is the schedule of workshops for the current semester, held in the MESA Study Center, Rm 834,
unless otherwise shown. Workshops will begin the second week of classes.
