Achievement Connections math tutor works with high school student

Achievement Connections

Achievement Connections pairs UW–Madison students and other community volunteer tutors with area high schoolers to engage students in learning while they continue to develop productive study skills.

Volunteers tutor in algebra or geometry with a high school student at either West, East, LaFollette, James Madison Memorial or Middleton high schools. These volunteers commit around two hours per school week, one hour on two different days at the same time, between 8am to 4:30pm.  

Due to this consistency, tutors and students have the potential to build positive relationships. Tutors receive comprehensive training to ensure preparedness. This is a great opportunity for tutors to partner with local communities and join a successful team of volunteers who engage students in learning. For the fall 2021 semester all tutoring will be held virtually.  

Tutors work one-on-one with a high school student in the Madison or Middleton-Cross Plains Area school district, where over 200 tutors have been mobilized in past years.

During these sessions, tutors provide students with guidance in algebra or geometry, provide support in the utilization of productive study skills, and encourage methods of organization to promote academic success.
