What is a Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leader?
A Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leader is another student who has already taken the course you are taking and passed it with an A (or with B and a strong instructor recommendation). The SI Leader will re-attend class again, take notes, and knows the professors’ expectations. The SI Leader will help you with course content, study skills, learning techniques, and exam preparation.
An SI leader provides weekly sessions designed to support the content covered in a particular course and provides test preparation sessions as need during the semester. This is particularly helpful with large lecture class or STEM courses.
SI Leaders plan activities to help students in study skills, organization of the material, and learning strategies. They also attend pre-semester training and receive ongoing training throughout the semester.
In addition to hosting weekly SI sessions, Tarleton SI Leaders create and manage their own individual webpages dedicated to the course they support. Each webpage (link below) contains helpful course content, updates, and some session recordings created by Zoom.
