About the Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction(SI) offers free, out-of-class group review sessions to strengthen and reinforce content students learn in class. SI is usually offered for historically difficult courses in STEM disciplines. SI occurs at the request of faculty and is offered to students enrolled in the course sections these faculties teach. SI Leaders attend class and facilitate regular, weekly review sessions for students. Content for SI Leaders is provided by participating faculty in class and at weekly meetings with the SI Leader.

During review sessions, students complete practice problems, quiz each other, discuss readings, and develop study skills. Students learn how to integrate course content and organizational tools while working together with the SI Leader. Students can attend all or a portion of the SI session, no appointment needed. Services are free. 

If you are a faculty member interested in learning more about SI or a student interested in becoming an SI Leader, please contact the ASC’s Assistant Manager, Sandra Marchetti, at ms33855@harpercollege.edu or (847) 925-6730.
