Supplemental Instruction (SI) consists of regularly scheduled, out-of-class, drop-in group study sessions driven by your needs. Sessions are facilitated by trained undergrad student SI Leaders who utilize collaborative activities to ensure peer-to-peer interaction in small groups (UMKC 2018). SI is offered for historically difficult 100 and 200 level courses in biology, chemistry, math, and physics.
Peer tutoring provides support to some 100 and 200-level courses through study groups of up to 8 students. Using a collaborative approach, each group is led by an undergrad peer tutor. Appointments can be made on TutorTrac.
Here are the anticipated courses sponsored by SI and Peer Tutoring for fall 2020:

In personalized, one-on-one Success Coach meetings, students meet with a coach to talk about their academic experiences, identify areas for growth, and create a customized, realistic plan for success. For example, students may choose to work on study skills, time management, notetaking, stress management, exam preparation, or other learning strategies. Appointments can be made on TutorTrac.
This one-credit, semester-long course helps students assess their academic skills and become strong, effective learners in college. During the semester, each student work with the instructor and a Success Coach to develop learning strategies such as test preparation, notetaking, study skills, and final exam preparation. Students reflect on their academic experiences and create a plan for success.
