Supplemental Instruction- SI

Get Ahead, Make Friends, and Learn How to Study for Class!

TAMUG's Supplemental Instruction (SI) program offers peer-lead, group study sessions with activities designed to cover the most difficult course content for that week. Supplemental Instructors hold the same session three times a week to exercise study skills, critical thinking, and problem solving for various concepts.

Students can attend scheduled sessions once a week or as needed, but should be prepared to bring course materials and participate in activities. Regular attendance to SI Sessions prepares students to stay ahead in the course and study more efficiently on their own.

Sessions are currently offered for Biology, Chemistry, and Physics courses. For a complete list of subjects offered this semester, please see the SI roster below.

Tutoring is available for some Chemistry, Math, and Physics courses.
