The Student Success Center was designed to enhance academics through various tutoring modalities and improving study skills. Our objective is to provide services that help students improve academic performance through the use of peer Tutoring, peer Supplemental Instruction (SI) and peer Mentoring, while integrating learning strategies and study skills with course material.
SUPPLEMENTAL INSTRUCTION (SI): (Group-Focused) Students in group settings are helped by peers who conduct weekly out-of-class sessions based upon specific class topics. Supplemental Instruction provides a chance for you to collaborate with individuals in your class, to compare notes, discuss important concepts, develop strategies for studying the subject, and to test yourself. SI is offered to students who want to improve their understanding of course material and improve their grades. In specific courses offered, an SI Leader facilitates the sessions.
WAYS TO SUCCESS
The secret of success is to study proactively! Don’t wait until the night before to study. Come to the SSC and make efficient use of your study time. Please remember to bring your notes, textbook and other study material to the sessions, along with questions that you might have.
Academic support does not cost you anything except your time. Assistance is FREE and you can come as often as you like. Remember that the statistics show that the more you attend, the better your grades.
During the first week of classes, the SI Leaders and Tutors will make an announcement to your class letting you know the day and time for the session. You can also visit the Student Success Center and pick up a copy of the schedule, or ask the faculty member if SI is available for your class.
Workshops are offered throughout the quarter on various topics (i.e. note-taking, test taking, learning styles, study skills, time management, etc). Please let us know if you have a topic you would like covered in a workshop setting.
