Online Tutoring Program

Summer 2020 Session

In response to the changing educational landscape caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, a collaborative of universities including St. Norbert College, UW-Oshkosh Ripon College, UW-Stevens Point, UW-Green Bay, Lawrence University, UW-Milwaukee, and University of North Georgia, implemented online tutoring services to K12 students across the state of Wisconsin and beyond during the spring of 2020.

Using this model, UWM is continuing to support an online virtual tutoring program. This program is a volunteer opportunity for all UWM affiliates; students, staff, and faculty. The program provides academic and social support to K-12 students impacted by distance education, continued professional experience for college students, and an opportunity for the UWM community to support the education of young people.

Tutors are placed with their desired number of students and commit to meeting with each student twice a week for 30 to 60 minutes. The final tutoring schedules, subjects, and lessons are agreed upon by the tutor, the student, and the student’s family. Tutors should anticipate spending 2 hours per week per student, this includes face-to-face and prep time.

The summer session for the Online Tutoring Program runs from June 15th through July 31st. Tutors and those interested in tutoring services should register before June 15th for priority placement.

If you are interested in registering as a tutor, complete the “Online Tutoring Tutor Registration” form. We are no longer taking registrations for tutees for the summer session. Please check back for fall tutoring options.
