Supplemental Instruction

The Supplemental Instruction (SI) program offers free academic assistance to students enrolled in challenging courses.  Students who have previously taken the course, been recommended by a faculty member, and then participate through an intensive SI Leader training serve as our SI Leaders. SI Leaders attend class sessions with the students and then conduct weekly sessions.

TLC's Supplemental Instruction provides an opportunity for students to explore course content and to practice essential skills presented in class. The groups are led by students who have taken the class and excel in the topic area. SI Leaders work with professors to develop materials and examples that will enhance a student's understanding of the subject. SI Leaders also share successful approaches to learning the material and performing on tests.

Why Should I Attend SI?

  • Develop a rapport with other students in your course, compare notes, discuss lectures, and prepare for quizzes and exams
  • Supplemental Instruction is FREE to all registered UL students
  • SI Sessions are held on campus for a total of 4 hours each week
  • SI provides motivation to increase knowledge and confidence in your subject
  • You can learn the course material in a more relaxed environment

Is My Tutor Qualified?

  • All SI Leaders are CRLA-certified or working towards certification.
  • Each SI Leader earned an 'A'  of 'B' in their SI class.
  • Each SI Leader is recommended by the professor of the course.
  • Each SI Leader attends intensive pre-semester training and continuous monthly SI Leader meetings for professional development and sharing of successes and areas of improvement.
  • SI Leaders attend lectures, take extensive notes, plan sessions in advance with intentional objectives, and hold weekly office hours
