Tutors assist students' academic development by clarifying learning problems and working on study skills.
Supplemental Instruction (SI)
SI is an academic assistance program utilizing collaborative learning sessions led by tutors. These sessions are scheduled on a regular basis and begin within the first two weeks of the semester. During these sessions, students learn by comparing notes, discussing course content, and reviewing for exams. Students learn how to integrate the course content with critical thinking and reasoning skills. Sessions are facilitated by tutors, certified through the National Tutoring Association, who attend all class lectures linked with their respective SI sessions. Because SIs serve as model students and promote higher level thinking among peers, students who attend these sessions learn transferable study skills.
