Tutoring & Supplemental Instruction
Individual tutoring will begin on Wednesday, August 28, 2013, and group tutoring will begin on Tuesday, September 3, 2013.
If you don't see a tutor available, don't forget about SI sessions, office hours, study groups, TA's, and other review sessions that may be offered for the class.

Don't forget to cancel your appointment! 3 no-shows will result in being blocked from tutoring until the next semester. We also discourage back-to-back appointments. Please only make one appointment per subject per day. Excessive appointments will be canceled.
If you have questions or need immediate assistance, please contact the Student Success Center (Busch Student Center, suite 331) by calling (314)977-3484.
Tutoring is not about asking for help, but rather, finding a way to make the greatest impact in your learning and on your grades!
FREE tutoring services are available Sunday through Thursday. Regardless if you are struggling or trying to pull an A- up to an A, a tutor is available in many of SLU's most challenging courses.
Have classes at the Medical Center? That is ok! Tutors will also be available in the Student Success Center--Medical Center.
To make visit SLU Appointments through your mySLU portal and visit the tools section.
Group Tutoring: Supplemental Instruction
Supplemental instruction (SI) is a program that offers weekly group-study sessions that are facilitated by a peer leader who has previously taken (and excelled in) the coursework.
The supplemental instruction leader (SI leader) attends the class, talks with the professor, and designs sessions to stimulate the learning process. Unlike TA's for the course, SI leaders are expected to make you an active participant by discussing and practicing weekly material (versus reviewing or re-teaching material).
Through the SI model, you can learn and activate new study skills that will help prepare you for future courses.
This service is free to all students enrolled in the course and appointments are not necessary!
When students are struggling in my class or one of the other chemistry courses, I always recommend the tutoring services. They offer additional support for the student that is quite helpful.
