Karolina CHEM 120A Picture

Supplemental Instruction (SI) covers courses in:

  • Biology (BIOL150, BIOL151, BIOL240a,b, BIOL250, BIOL319)
  • Business (FIN320, MS250, MS251)
  • Chemistry (CHEM113, CHEM120a,b, CHEM121b, CHEM241a,b)
  • Engineering (ECE210)
  • Mathematics (MTH145; MTH152)
  • Nursing (NURS240)
  • Physics (PHYS131, PHYS132, PHYS141, PHYS142, PHYS151, PHYS152)

We are looking for motivated students with:

  • Good communication and time management skills
  • Leadership ability
  • Good knowledge of the course content to cover courses for Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. Please refer to Cougarnet course schedules.

Students work about 10 hours per week (summer varies); this includes attending all class lectures, holding three sessions and an office hour per week, attending bi-weekly leader meetings, preparing for sessions, and completing paperwork. We hire both undergraduate and graduate students. Starting pay is $10.10 per hour effective January 2020.

Being an SI leader is a rewarding experience. The leader becomes an "expert" in the course content, which can help with upper level courses. This position can be counted as a Co-op or Internship with transcript recognition and included on a resume. Leaders gain and improve leadership and communication skills.
