The Supplemental Instruction Program (SI) provides students academic support by placing a tutor directly in the classroom. The tutor works with the professor to help students succeed in the class by offering free one-on-one tutoring to better understand the course material. On average, students who participate in SI courses earn higher letter grades because of the additional help provided.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a nontraditional form of tutoring that focuses on collaboration, group study, and interaction for assisting students in undertaking “traditionally difficult” courses. SI targets courses with a minimum 30% rate of students that drop, withdraw, or fail, and then provides a trained peer who has successfully taken the course to assist its future students.Learn more
