FREE peer tutoring is designed to help engineering students who are having difficulties in a course because of a particularly challenging subject matter, gaps in their preparation, loss of time due to illness, or other factors. We use undergraduate peer tutors who have performed well in specific courses and have been trained in tutoring policies and techniques.
Peer tutoring is available to all engineering undergraduates during the fall and spring semesters in a limited number of courses. Tutoring sessions are held in Clement Hall 208 on a walk-in basis.

Supplemental Instruction is an academic assistance program that utilizes peer-assisted study sessions. Sessions are regularly scheduled, informal review sessions in which students compare notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools, and predict test items. Students learn how to integrate course content and study skills while working together. The sessions are facilitated by “SI leaders”, students who have previously done well in the course and who attend all class lectures, take notes, and act as model students.
SI is a “free service” offered to all students in a targeted course. The SI program targets high-risk courses. All students are encouraged to attend SI sessions, as it is a voluntary program. Students with varying levels of academic preparedness and diverse ethnicities can participate.
National data shows that on average students who attend the SI model we use receive half to a full letter grade higher than those who do not attend.
