A student who has successfully completed one of the designated courses is recruited to be a peer Student Leader. These leaders attend the same class as the students they’re tutoring and hold study sessions outside of that class. Attendance is voluntary, but statistics consistently show that students who attend SI sessions do better than those who do not.
If your course offers Supplemental Instruction, it will be announced the first day of class and noted in Canvas. Student leaders may also introduce themselves.
The group reviews lecture notes, discusses questions, applies concepts, and gets tips and new study skills to help participants become more independent as learners, more confident and more successful in the course. Group activities, games, hands-on projects, test-taking exercises and memory techniques all can be part of a session. Complaining about the instructor, grousing about a test or just listening to the same material lectured again are NOT part of a session.

In many of the targeted courses, there are more lecture sections than there are SI sessions. You are still welcome to attend and will study the same course material.
As a supplemental instruction student leader you will be paid to attend lectures, prepare session plans, direct sessions three times a week, meet with the targeted course faculty member, attend trainings and meetings to improve your skill and manage records.
Being an effective SI student leader requires maturity, self-initiative, strong subject knowledge and an ability to communicate clearly. To become a student leader, you must:
Attend the target course three times a week, take notes and model appropriate academic attitude and behavior in class.
