The WiGrow program is an engagement effort aimed to increase the positive impact of student employment through supervisor and student employee conversations.


The UW-Madison Volunteer Tutoring Program offers UW-Madison employees a one-on-one learning opportunity to improve their skills in specific subjects.  UW-Madison employees are matched with tutors based on their availability, preferred meeting location and subject areas tutors are comfortable teaching.

Who can be a tutor?

UW-Madison employees, students, and community members including retirees 

What should tutors expect?

Tutors will
     o  meet with the program coordinator to review the program and, when possible, meet the learner for introduction  
     o  meet the learner at least one hour per week for a semester 
     o  log tutoring hours monthly and provide experience feedback every semester

Who can request a one-on-one tutor through Cultural Linguistic Services?

UW-Madison employees and J-1 visiting scholars who want to improve their English skills and broaden their understanding of UW-Madison and U.S. culture.  From the program’s perspective, learners benefit most if they

     •  know what specific skills they want to improve 
     •  are able to provide feedback to the tutor
     •  are very committed to learning

What can the learner request from the tutor?

The learner shares subject areas for improvement and learning goals, and the tutor finds materials and strategies to help the learner improve and work toward their goals.  Examples of subject areas for improvement include but are not limited to conversation, pronunciation, reading, writing and computer skills.
