Tutors in the Classroom Program
Mount San Antonio Community College has long recognized and used both tutoring and supplemental instruction to support its students’ learning. With the tutor’s assistance, the student is provided with clear structure and techniques for how to approach challenging material, while stimulating the learning process. A good tutor can help a student to develop the self-awareness (meta-cognitive skills) needed to succeed in independently applying learning strategies. Similarly, supplemental instruction (or SI) is a peer-facilitated academic support program that attempts to improve student performance and retention by offering regularly scheduled, out-of class review sessions. In early 2009, the Writing Center tried to combine the best elements of both with some specific writing support – and the Tutors in the Classroom concept was born!
