Volunteer math tutors needed!
Completing algebra by the 10th grade is one of the leading indicators that a student will graduate from high school in the Madison area.
Achievement Connections pairs UW-Madison students and other community volunteer tutors with area high school students who are low-performing in math, particularly algebra. Achievement Connections tutors are paired with one high school student for at least one entire semester. The program is designed to provide not only academic support, but a one-on-one support system.
The tutors provide support exclusively for math at Madison Memorial, East and West High Schools, along with Middleton High School.
Achievement Connections is looking for any UW-Madison student who is comfortable as a tutor, proficient in algebra and able to commit up to two hours each week for at least one semester. Comprehensive training will be provided for volunteers.
Achievement Connections is a partnership between United Way of Dane County, AmeriCorps, Madison Metropolitant School District, Middleton Cross Plains Area School District and the Morgridge Center for Public Service.
