  • impact the next generation, and
  • keep your skills sharp!

The process

If you would like to join our team of excellent tutors, including Supplemental Instruction leaders and Structured Learning Assistance leaders, first learn more about the role of an MATC tutor through our Frequently Asked Questions, including information about certification as a tutor. Then visit us!

We ask volunteers to start out in the Tutoring Services office, located in Room C201 (in the C Building) at the Downtown Milwaukee Campus, 1036 N. 8th St., Milwaukee, WI 53233. This will allow you to introduce yourself to our staff and familiarize yourself with the campus.

Staff will direct you to the tutor supervisor in charge of your subject area to determine if there is a position available. If there is a position available, the tutor supervisor will have you fill out application paperwork and set up a formal interview.

Hours

Tutoring Services (in C201) is open from 7:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 7:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday for fall semester. We are closed during breaks.
