Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction is offered in courses that are historically difficult for students. In this effort, a former student, who excelled in the area, attends the class and then offers additional teaching sessions to students. These sessions are held at times that accommodate student schedules like weekends, evenings, etc. Currently, SI sessions are offered for students enrolled in Anatomy and Physiology I and College Algebra.

I am 58 years old and have ADHD and dyslexia. At my age, it is a joy to come to the ASC and know there will always be staff members available to help me with my math and English problems. I always appreciate the help, and would not be successful without it. Come to the ASC and you will succeed.
