Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a form of co-curricular academic support that supports high-risk courses rather than high-risk students. As a non-remedial approach available to all students enrolled in selected courses, weekly peer-facilitated study sessions are offered to help students compare notes, develop learning strategies, and prepare for exams. These sessions are facilitated by trained undergraduate students known as "SI Leaders", who have successfully taken the course before, and who re-attend lectures, connect with students and act as a role model.
Interested in becoming an SI Leader?
SI Leaders are model students who have successfully completed the course with a high final grade. They attend classes again and prepare SI sessions based on material from class. The position requires an average 9 hours of work per week and pays $14.65 per hour. A full day of paid training, as well as continued training throughout the term are also required. SI Leaders are expected to be approachable, friendly, and have good organizational and time management skills. Download the application.
