Academic Peer Instruction (API) is a peer tutoring program modeled after a nationally recognized program, Supplemental Instruction (SI). We are proud to say that API has helped students succeed in their courses at LaGuardia since 1993. It is available to all students enrolled in “high risk” API – linked courses and is ABSOLUTELY FREE.
In API, once a “high risk course has been selected, an API student leader or tutor is hired. He or she must have completed the course, earned a B+ or higher grade in it, received recommendations from faculty and shown to be a person who cares about others. Hired students are then extensively trained in how to be effective tutors.
The API tutoring schedule is located on the bulletin board outside Room E115. A digital copy is also available for
