**Spring 2019 services begin in the third week of instruction

About Study Groups

Study groups provide an inclusive, welcoming, and problem-based learning environment for students enrolled in core science courses. Guided by a peer facilitator, students will review course concepts, collaborate with peers to solve practice problems, and engage in a reflective practice to enhance their understanding of the subject matter. Students will also develop effective learning strategies to bolster their experiences as science learners.

Groups meet once a week for two hours throughout the semester, beginning the third week of instruction.

Sign Up

Students must sign up in advance to join a study group. The sign up link will be posted by the end of the first week of instruction.

To ensure an intimate learning environment where all members can actively engage, each study group accommodates up to 25 students. Acceptance is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Students who sign up for a study group that no longer has available seats will be added to the waitlist or that session. If seats become available in that study group during the semester, students on the waitlist will be notified and given the option to join.

Attendance

Although participation in an SLC Science study group is voluntary, students must commit to attending regularly and are granted a maximum of two absences over the course of the semester.   

Members who do not attend the first session of the semester or have more than two absences will be dropped from the study group. Students may not rejoin the same study group from which they were dropped; they must sign up to join or be added to the waitlist for a different study group.

No prior signing up is required. Students are welcome to visit the Science Drop-in Tutoring Area on the 2nd floor of Chávez during open hours. Please sign in at the Drop-in computer upon arrival and have a seat at the designated "Chem 1A/1AL" table.

Chemistry 1A Exam Reviews

In the exam review service format, students enhance their problem-solving skills through guided concept review and peer collaboration. Peer facilitators review key course concepts and students collaborate in small groups to solve practice problems. At the end of the session, students take a 45-minute practice exam in a simulated test-taking environment. Solutions to the practice exam may be reviewed with peer tutors in Science Drop-in.

Sign Up

Advanced registration is required for all exam reviews. Acceptance is on a first come, first serve basis and is subject to seating availability. The session location will be announced via email a day in advance.
