The Writing Center uses WCONLINE, web-based software that allows students to schedule appointments online at their convenience. The Writing Center encourages students to schedule tutoring appointments online at http://writingcenter.sdsu.edu/appointment.html.
During the 30-minute sessions, tutors collaborate with students to identify strengths and weaknesses and to suggest ways students can enhance their writing. The sessions allow students to have a conversation about their work in order to help them figure out ways to improve their writing.

Supplemental Instruction (SI) began at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) in 1973, and the highly prescriptive model of peer-assisted learning is practiced at more than 1,500 institutions in 29 countries. Supplemental Instruction targets historically difficult courses and offers free sessions to all students on a voluntary basis. Sessions are facilitated by students who were previously successful in the course, they are collaborative, and the SI Student Leader integrates course content and study skills with information gathered from attending all of the class lectures. Active learning in SI sessions may include memory games, journaling, and in the case of San Diego State University, they are held in the Learning Research Studios and Love Library learning spaces, enabled with leading-edge technology to support team learning and collaboration.
This Fall (2016), 27 Supplemental Instruction Leaders will serve more than 2,000 students by offering over 50 SI Sessions in: General Chemistry (CHEM 200), Linear Algebra (MATH 254), Statistical Principles and Practices (STAT 250), and Introductory Psychology (PSY 101).
