Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Tutors working together

What is SI?

The goal of Supplemental Instruction (SI) is to help students learn how to succeed in traditionally difficult courses. Working with faculty, SI seeks to help students learn to solve problems, organize classroom materials, and develop effective study strategies. SI sessions are designed to engage students in the learning process and to create a positive, interactive, and stimulating learning environment. Therefore, the friendly SI leaders are trained in proactive learning and study strategies.

SI is a weekly study group facilitated by a student leader. SI leaders are students who have taken the course and earned at least a B. They attend all the class sessions, so they know what’s going on in your class. If you see them, say HI! :)

Data from the last 4 years suggest that students who engage in SI and/or tutoring more than twice earn a half to a full letter grade higher than students who do not engage in SI and tutoring.

“This is what I need to succeed in Chemistry! Super helpful!”

You do not need to sign up or register for an SI. Simply attend a session that fits your schedule. If you cannot find a session that fits your schedule, please email us at learning@hawaii.edu.

The service is free.

All rooms are located in the Student Success Center in Sinclair Library.

SI sessions are available from January 20 to May 6, 2015.
