Supplemental Instruction Is Hiring

Supplemental Instruction is currently hiring Leaders for the Fall semester of 2022. We currently offer in-person positions with flexible work hours. Build your resume with items from our regular Friday trainings, and leading experience. Utilizing your past course knowledge by learning new ways to collaborate and engage others with content, Supplemental Instruction Leaders provide aid to students that strive for better understanding of their course content.

What Is Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a program that supports students enrolled in traditionally difficult courses by offering free, regularly scheduled group study sessions that are facilitated by SI Leaders (current students who have previously succeeded in the course). SI Leaders support faculty by preparing weekly collaborative sessions that help students develop effective learning strategies while engaging with the most difficult course material.


SI COVID Updates for Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Supplemental Instructional (SI) will continue to support courses in Spring 2022 by offering a hybrid of on-campus and online collaborative group study SI Sessions.
