Supplemental Instruction

The mission of Supplemental Instruction (SI) is to improve student
 retention and academic achievement by organizing dynamic and interactive
 peer-facilitated study sessions paired with traditionally difficult
 courses. The SI program at Texas A&M University-Kingsville provides 
learning tools to improve understanding of subject content, foster 
critical thinking and to encourage lifelong 
learning and professional student success.

The Center for Student Success offers Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction as support services designed to help students achieve academic success.

Tutoring assists students by providing one-on-one, need-specific academic help. Tutoring sessions, by appointment, are recommended although walk-in requests are available.

Supplemental Instruction (SI) assists students by providing regularly scheduled, out-of-class study sessions. SI sessions are open to all class members and welcome all students in the course. Sessions focus on content and learning/study skills strategies. Consult the SI leader in your class to find out when sessions are offered and/or click one of the following links for more information

What’s the difference between tutoring and supplemental instruction? 

  • along in order to accurately assess what they mastered and what they have not.
  • Students use the Tutoring Center well before an assignment is due or an exam is to be taken. It is very difficult for tutors to provide assistance when students come in just before an assignment is due or only hours before an exam.
  • Students come to the Tutoring Center with realistic expectations. Tutoring is a process that encourages learning, and as such, requires time and commitment. Sometimes a student’s difficulty will be resolved in one session and sometimes a student may require regular support from a tutor.
