What Is Supplemental Instruction (SI)?
- Group tutoring sessions set up for specific courses (subjects)
- Each session is led by a student, known as an SI Leader, who has already passed the course successfully
- SI Leader attends your course meetings all semester along with you, so that he/she knows exactly what the instructor is requiring
- SI sessions involve group discussion of course concepts with an emphasis on study skills and learning strategies
- Students who regularly come to SI get higher grades!!
Prefer help one-on-one? You can also check out the Tutoring Center!
Why Should I Attend?

How do I get Involved?

Interested in becoming an SI Leader?
