Student Instruction

Student Instruction

We believe students can be a source of learning as well as our instructors, and our Student Instructors are proof of that. Economics students that do well in their core classes have the opportunity to become Student Instructors responsible for teaching  one unit supplemental courses that greatly contribute to student success.

While tutoring is often an effective method of helping a student succeed, the extra structured learning opportunity that supplemental courses offer can mean the difference between understanding the material and giving up. As a Student Instructor, you would lead classes in group activities, question and answer, and explain key ideas and concepts. Additionally, reviewing for exams and covering homework is a large part of the course, making sure that the students understand the current material being taught in the main course.

Student Instructors are compensated for their time and effort, and the experience gained through being an SI boosts communication and presentation skills. While one of the most rewarding aspects of this opportunity is the opportunity to help fellow students succeed, the personal growth in knowledge a Student Instructor experiences strengthens one's own performance in Economics classes.
