Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) offers free, peer-led study sessions for some of our most challenging courses.

What is SI?

  • Supplemental Instruction is a program built around peer-led group study sessions. Attending SI sessions help you maximize your student time while getting to know peers and having fun!
  • Our SI Leaders are current PNW students who have already successfully passed the course and have been recommended by the Professor. SI Leaders know what it takes to succeed in the course and are trained to review material through fun, collaborative activities that provide more practice on course material.
  • One (1) hour of productive group study is equal to two (2) hours of solo studying.

What to Expect

  • You should expect to work in small with groups with other students in your class.
  • You should expect the SI Leader will use several tools to give you the opportunity to think critically about course content and leave with a deeper understanding of how different concepts connect with one another.
  • You should expect to leave more confident! Although SI Leaders might not directly answer a question you ask, they will help you find the answer yourself, which will be more beneficial for your learning.
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.
