What is Supplemental Instruction (SI)?

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an internationally recognized academic success program offering free, regularly scheduled informal review sessions for traditionally difficult courses.

SI is actually a more intensive type of tutoring. It is designed to assist students improve their academic performance just like normal tutoring; however, supplemental instruction is designed for historically difficult courses with a leader that has successfully completed the course. 

Instructors select SI Leaders to guide study sessions for their specific class sections.  SI leaders also attend current classes with students and often get direct preparation from the instructor.  Supplemental instruction focuses on content, learning/study strategies and internalization of course content.
