ONLINE TUTORING

For those days when you are off-campus or up early or late in your pajamas and need academic assistance, CSCC provides students with free online tutoring through Tutor.com.  Simply log into your CSCC student account.  Then, within myCS courses, click the course in which you need assistance.  Next, look for the Tutor.com icon.  After clicking it, follow the directions.  This service provides tutoring assistance 24/7.  CSCC students have up to 8 hours of free tutoring through Tutor.com.  (Tutoring for nursing is only available Sunday – Thursday from 8:00 pm – 12:00 am.  Tutoring for psychology is available every day from 6:00 pm – 12:00 am.) 

SUPPLEMENTAL INSTRUCTION (SI)

Are you looking to:  earn better grades, prepare more thoroughly for exams, organize/compare class notes, study with classmates, acquire better study skills, become more skilled as an independent learner, and/or seek guidance from a student who has successfully completed the course in which you are enrolled?  If so, check to see if supplemental instruction (SI) sessions are offered for your course!

Fall 2016 SI Sessions

Supplemental instruction (SI) sessions are peer-led review sessions for selected courses.  The sessions are facilitated by a trained SI leader, a student who has taken the class before and earned a high grade.  The leader does not re-lecture or give out his/her class notes but helps the students become independent learners by planning activities that encourage students to work together and process material themselves.  (Source:  University of Missouri-Kansas City)

What are SI sessions?  Supplemental instruction (SI) sessions are peer-led review sessions for selected courses.  The sessions are facilitated by a trained SI leader, a student who has taken the class before and earned a high grade.  The leader does not re-lecture or give out his/her class notes but helps the students become independent learners by planning activities that encourage students to work together and process material themselves.   (Source:  University of Missouri-Kansas City)

How can SI sessions benefit students who attend regularly?  Students have the opportunity to collaborate with classmates, organize/compare class materials, acquire better study skills, become independent learners, prepare more thoroughly for exams, and earn higher mean course grades.
