Faculty Resources

Your involvement matters. Faculty-student interactions enhance students' learning and their educational experience. Encourage student success, persistence in the classroom, and personal development by referring students to our resources and services. 

Incorporate Success With

Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Supplemental Instruction is regularly scheduled, out-of-class review sessions for difficult gateway courses. SI sessions are facilitated by trained peer tutors who have previously taken the course and demonstrated academic success in that particular subject area. These tutors sit in on class lectures, take notes, and act as a support system to your students currently taking your course. They then create follow-up study sessions throughout the week based on the course syllabus, your faculty recommendations, the students’ needs, and what’s been going on in the class.

If you are a faculty member interested in having Supplemental Instruction for your course, please contact Academic Learning & Tutoring Center Director Christie Kahil for more information.
