Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction
Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction assists in developing the skills needed for students to become independent learners who grow personally and academically through knowledge sharing and peer facilitation (Reviewed and revised, 07/01/2019). Students receive assistance with course content, exam preparation, study skills, time management and more.

Peer Educator Leadership Team
Supplemental Instruction is a resource offered and available to any student registered in an SI-targeted course. SI sessions occur two times each week outside of scheduled class periods. SI Leaders are a great resource and are supportive peers. Attending SI sessions enables students to become immersed in the course content through group study sessions, group activities, and more.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) Effectiveness
The International Center for SI in Kansas City shows that students who regularly attend and participate in SI sessions enjoy pass rates up to 60% higher than their classmates who do not attend SI.
