My tutor was very informational and explained how to work each problem in different ways.

S.I. Student

 

  • They explained the answers to problems in great detail (if we needed extra help) to make sure we understood before the test.
  • My SI leader does a great job at making the material easy to understand. He challenges us in a good way to help us break down the information for our own understanding.
  • They answer all questions we have and give us lots of ways to practice and enhance our knowledge.
  • The concept was broken down into a more feasible and easy to understand thought process.
  • The SI leader is always extremely helpful with working out practice questions step-by-step and it makes this challenging subject feel much easier to tackle.
  • SI guided us through some problems and always made sure we understood the concept before moving on.
  • They answered any questions I had and were very effective on giving us tips and advice.

Supplemental Instruction Overview

  • The Supplemental Instruction leader is attending class with you and is there to assist you. Feel free to ask them questions through Brightspace.
  • Leaders attending lectures will post the supplemental instruction session days, times, and locations on Brightspace.
  • While leaders will only attend the lectures for an assigned course section, students from all sections of the course are welcome and encouraged to attend.
  • Although courses cover the same material, individual professors may teach at different rates, cover topics in a different order, and/or put different levels of emphasis/importance on material. You should always adhere to your specific professor’s instructions, preferences, or methods.

Important Notes

  • Sessions will end before Final Exam week, although there may be special “Exam Jam” sessions for specific SI courses. Please ask the supplemental instruction leader or email sas@pnw.edu for more information.
  • We offer separate tutoring hours for many of these courses as well.
