Tutoring College Success Academic Coaching

All successful students use strategies for managing their time, taking notes, organizing reading material and preparing for exams. The LSUS Student Success Center is committed to your success and offers these services to assist you in learning about yourself as a learner and in developing strategies that work for you.

Supplemental Instruction (SI)

The Student Success Center has formed a partnership with the Science Department to bring Supplemental Instruction (SI) for BIOS 110, BIOS 120, and CHEM 121.

What Is Supplemental Instruction?

SI is an academic assistance program that utilizes peer-assisted study sessions. SI 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 tutors", students who have previously done well in the course and who attend all class lectures and take notes.

SI is a "free service" offered to all students, no matter grade level or current competency. Beginning the second week of classes, most of the SI study sessions will be held in Business Education 104 and Business Education 105.
