What’s the difference?

A supplemental instruction leader (SIL) works directly with one instructor and course to supplement the learning found in the classroom. The SIL will lead group sessions with a large number of attendees with a drop in sessions.

A tutor offers one on one and group sessions during scheduled appointments in a defined set of coursework (between 5-10 courses that the tutor has successfully completed).
