About Us

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a nontraditional form of tutoring that focuses on collaboration, group study and peer interaction outside of the classroom. Its purpose is to assist students taking “traditionally difficult” courses.

SI Sessions

SI sessions are facilitated by academically successful students known as SI leaders. These individuals have previously excelled in the course and have received training on guiding collaborative group study sessions. SI leaders attend all of the assigned lectures, take thorough notes, and participate as a traditional student within the course.  SI leaders plan and use a variety of teaching and learning methods within  an additional 50-minute session each week, to help students with study skills and course subject matter.


SI courses can benefit your college experience, especially if you’re a new student!
