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.
If you have questions, contact Jzong Thao at 608-263-2217 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
