Supplemental Instruction, Embedded Tutoring, Study Groups

Supplemental Instruction (SI)
Embedded Tutoring (ET)
Study Groups (SG)

ASAC's SI, ET, and SG are three in-class academic support/group tutoring programs designed for traditionally difficult courses. These programs aim to reduce the numbers of students who drop an assigned course as well as increase success in the course.

      What are SI/ET/SG Tutors?
      They are peer, group-learning facilitators/tutors assigned to specific courses. They lead group sessions outside of class time that provide students a collaborative learning experience where they can improve their understanding of class materials through additional practice in an interactive learning environment.
