Experience/Skills Gained:

The long-standing TF Program that many students are familiar with, has a heavy focus on supplemental instruction. Supplemental instruction is the provision of peer-led skill-building sessions that parallel substantive content in all first-year courses. This program is based on four-decades of research into the effectiveness of such parallel instruction sessions. This type of instruction facilitates deeper learning of substantive material and academic excellence in a more individualized manner that respects both cultural and learning difference.
