Academic Resources



OASIS Math and Science Workshops are structured group-learning study-sessions led by a tutor who explains course concepts and encourages a collaborative learning environment. They offer specific workshop for general chemistry help.

OASIS General Chemistry Workshops 

Each workshop session is 2 hours and meets twice a week. Attendance is mandatory.

Math and Science Supplemental Instruction (SI) Sessions

The Supplemental Instruction (SI) program provides academic support for students who are enrolled in courses that have been challenging to students in the past.  SI Leaders attend all lectures alongside the students, so they are aware of the topics being covered in the class. In SI sessions, SI Leaders do not re-lecture or introduce new material. Rather, SI Leaders are trained to maximize active student involvement with the course material and to integrate how-to-learn with what-to-learn. As a result, students who attend SI sessions have a greater grasp of the course materials and are able apply the learning skills they learn to other courses.

Math and Science Tutoring

Tutors provide: supportive, focused and on-task assistance; assistance with developing strategies for understanding concepts, solving problems, and preparing for exams; guidance on problems similar to homework. Tutoring sessions are 30-minutes long with up to 2 students. Students are able to schedule a session with a tutor up to 5 minutes before the session start time. Please view the website ( for the schedule and link to make an appointment. 


Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) provides an opportunity for students to actively and deeply learn course content by engaging in discussion with peers enrolled in the class. These groups are not meant to be tutoring or review sessions.  The Leaders prepare session plans to encourage and guide students in teaching and learning with each other. It is offered through the Academic Achievement Hub at UC San Diego.

Get hands on help for General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry. Supplemental Instruction (SI) leaders work with TA's and instructors to give students course and instructor specific support. See more information here.


Private Tutoring

Each year, the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department compiles a "Tutor for Hire" list. All tutors listed are Juniors, Seniors, or Graduate students who have earned an A- or better in the subject matter for which they are listed as an available tutor. Arrangements (pay, location, etc.) are arranged entirely between the tutor and tutee. 

Please contact us at if you are a current UCSD student taking a chemistry class and would like to obtain a copy of our Tutor for Hire list.
