University of Wisconsin–Madison
Enhancing communication, cultural understanding, and learning in our diverse multilingual work environment

Volunteer Tutoring Program

The Volunteer Tutoring Program matches UW–Madison employees with volunteer tutors.

Volunteer tutors help UW employees with individual learning goals. For example:

  • practice English conversation and pronunciation
  • improve reading and writing skills
  • understand UW–Madison and U.S. culture
  • feel comfortable with basic computer skills

Tutors can be UW employees, students, or community members. All tutors receive free online tutor training through ProLiteracy.

Tutors are matched with employees based on schedule, location, employee goals, and learning preferences.
