Students Helping Students

supplemental instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a program designed to impact student retention and success in historically difficult courses by using SI leaders to help students in need.

How Does It Work?

The program hires SI leaders. SI Leaders are not tutors; they are students who have successfully passed the class and possess good communication and interpersonal skills. These SI leaders attend the class again, model good academic behavior for students and lead free, participatory study sessions weekly.

SI sessions are usually held in your classroom. The sessions cover content and study strategies.
