Embedded Tutoring Services

An embedded tutor is a successful student assigned to a specific course to help students understand course concepts and enhance student engagement. Typically, these students have successfully completed the course and are familiar with the course content and design, as well as the instructor’s expectations. Embedded tutors support students out of class via one-on-one or group sessions.

Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an embedded tutoring program that targets historically difficult courses. An SI Leader attends their assigned course each time it meets and hosts SI Sessions – regularly-scheduled, out-of-class review sessions in which students work collaboratively to understand course content and prepare for examinations. WCC has the only accredited SI program in the State of Hawai‘i by the International Center for Supplemental Instruction.
