Supplemental Instruction Leaders
Interested in being a Supplemental Instruction Leader?
The Academic Skills Center is hiring Supplemental Instruction Leaders for the Spring 2023 semester. This is a paid position, averaging 7-10 hours of work per week. Starting wage is $12.00 per hour, with pay increases each semester. Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of weekly review sessions for students taking historically difficult courses. SI is provided for all students in the course section who want to acquire effective learning strategies, develop an understanding of difficult course material, and improve their grades. SI Leaders (or SILs) are responsible for facilitating these review sessions. SI Leaders are students who have successfully completed the course in a previous semester, who then use that knowledge to help guide current students through course material. SILs receive training on how to plan and facilitate SI sessions, how to use active learning strategies and collaborative learning techniques to review content material, and how to engage students in the session.
SILs have a variety of responsibilities including:
- Attend class and be a model student during class meetings
- Make regular announcements about SI sessions to the class
- Plan SI sessions
- Hold 2-3 SI sessions per week
- Hold 1 office hour per week
- Attend all SIL trainings
- Keep and maintain accurate session records
Qualified applicants must have taken the course they wish to be a Leader for and earned a B grade or higher. In addition, SI Leaders are expected to maintain a 3.0 GPA or higher throughout their employment. Highly qualified candidates will have experience in leadership or tutoring positions, are self-motivated, and have excellent time management skills.
