Welcome to Supplemental Instruction

Read what other students are saying about their SI experiences.

Check out the current SI Schedule.

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a popular kind of support that helps students learn material and study more effectively in challenging first year math and sciences courses.

Each SI session is led by an AEC trained SI Leader — a student who who has succeeded in the course and who now works closely with the course professor to provide effective week to week support sessions.  Because it's run by experienced facilitators who also happen to be students, it's a comfortable, fun environment -- a great opportunity for students to ask questions, practice together, prep for tests, and review and re-enforce what they're learning.

Best of all, SI works: students who attend SI sessions regularly generally earn grades that are a a half to a full grade point higher than their classmates! Check the schedules above to see if and where SI sessions are being held for your course.
