Supplemental Instruction

(SI) is student-led study sessions organized to practice and review topics from lecture classes. SI is proven to increase student achievement and reduce the number of failing grades and drop outs.

A schedule of the sessions for these classes are posted on the SI boards, located on the 3rd floor of the Arts & Science building, the Peer Tutor Room (AS 384) and the Learning Centre (AS 235).



When seeking assistance with coursework, students are reminded to bring along a printed copy of any documents they wish to review. The nature of the assistance provided by the Learning Centre and Peer Tutors, particularly writing assistance, requires tutors to see whole documents laid out in printed format. As well, LCD screens make it impossible to view images on the screen from angles other than straight-on. This leads to an unproductive tutorial. To make your session with a tutor more efficient, have your document typed in Times New Roman size 12 font, double spaced, and printed.
