Supplemental Instruction (SI) 

Supplemental In​​struction is an academic assistance program at Santa M​onica College that provides free out-of-class sessio​ns to students enrolled in spec​ific courses.  The SI sessions operate differently than the services provided by the various tutoring​ labs on ca​​mpus in the sense that SI leaders do not tutor students or assist stude​nts with homework problems.  In SI sessions, SI leaders engage students in interactive group activities to help them learn course concepts, prepare for exams, and learn effective study skills.​​​
