"SI helped me adopt new study habits and techniques, and because of SI I succeeded in college algebra."
"When I returned to Chaffey after being out of school for many years, my first class had an SI leader and I remember being reluctant to attend at first not knowing how I would benefit. That all changed after I attended my first session and realized that the extra time spent really helped the material stick and gave me a place to share information with my classmates as well as benefiting from their knowledge. When I was later asked if I would be interested in becoming an SI leader, I jumped at the chance to be able to help others the way I had been helped."
"SI helps you because you get to ask questions that you don't have a chance to ask in class."
"You are the first SI Leader that I've had the honor to learn from. I want to thank you for all your hard work in helping me as well as the other girls who attended SI sessions. You are great at what you do and I hope other students will learn as much from you as I have. See you around campus!"
"SI is useful because you get to have discussions with your classmates."
"The SI session gave me tips to remember parts of the body and its functions and also helped solidify a better understanding of how each system works. The SI Leader encouraged students to participate and engaged us in multiple ways of learning. I especially appreciated the extra work she did putting on the Jeopardy games! She made learning fun and each student who participated learned something. I noticed that students who were particularly timid at the beginning of class became more involved and asked questions.
The SI Leader encouraged every student and made sure everyone got involved. The great thing about the SI sessions is that they were free. Anyone could come in and participate and the SI Leader made certain that they were welcomed. She would regularly invite the students to come. Those students who took advantage of it did well in the class. I have no doubt in my mind that the SI sessions are beneficial. To this day I still keep in touch with the students that I met in my SI sessions."
"The SI program was very helpful as an after class study session. It especially helped me with testing purposes and encouraged me to study more at home. Kimberly was an excellent leader when it came to helping the students find an easier way to understand the material, including myself. I very much appreciate the help I was given and recommend other students to experience SI sessions."
"SI was great. I started the class with a D on the first test in Biology. Then I started attending SI on a regular basis and my grades improved tremendously! By the end of the class I received a B+. I really learned a lot. My SI leader was great; so helpful. She gave us practice quizzes and really made Biology fun and interesting. She was even there late at night. I had a question the night before a test and she helped me out by asking me questions to help me come to the conclusion of the answer. I would never have passed Biology, especially with a good grade, if it hadn't been for my SI leader. It's such a different learning environment and is a valuable learning tool. I myself would one day like to help my fellow students. I can't explain how much this program has helped me in my studies."
