    Supplemental Instruction

    Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of out-of-class study sessions led by a student who has successfully taken the class before.  It's a great way to practice the material and work with other students to learn the content.  SI works best if you attend the whole semester, not just before exams.  

    Get more info on SI, including classes & how to attend!

More Tutor Centers

The Center for Assistance with Statistics and Mathematics (CASM), offers free, in-person, drop-in (no appointment needed) tutoring for students who are looking for mathematics or statistics help.  Our tutors are qualified to help students enrolled in most math and stats courses up to the 3000 level. Located in Ross Hall, Room 29.

Generally, if a student wants math or statistics tutoring during the DAY they will go to CASM. If they want tutoring during EVENING hours they will go to STEP.


The Writing Center’s mission is to help all members of the UW community (whether student, faculty, or staff) to become more effective and confident writers. The Center can help with all types of academic and work-related writing, and assist at all stages of the writing process, from brainstorming to revising a final draft.

    Office Hours

    Your Best Resource

    Who better to help you be successful in class than your instructor? From offering strategies for studying and note-taking to clarifying concepts and content, office hours are hands down your best resource on campus.

    Make a habit early and often to visit instructor's office hours - if their scheduled hours do not work for you, most instructors offer appointments. You should be able to find office hour information on your class syllabus.

    Cowboy Coaches

    Peer Mentor Program

    The Cowboy Coaches peer-mentoring program is made up of current students. They bring a deep understanding and perspective to newer students who may need a little extra help, friendship or mentoring.  
    These mentors are matched with students based on a variety of traits including areas of study, personality, social factors and more. Coaches receive a high level of training to ensure each mentor can take a solution-based and empathetic approach when working with their peers. Cowboy Coaches are supervised by Student Success & Graduation staff in the event a student is in crisis and requires additional resources from licensed professionals.
