We would love a group of UW-Madison students to come to Velma Hamilton Middle School weekly to work with students who would like a tutor. Tutors will be working with students virtually based on your own schedule and how it aligns with our classes. We can make it work for you to tutor sometime between 8:30-3:30 M, T, Th, F. This opportunity would be either working in small groups or working with students 1:1.
Velma Hamilton Middle School is the Madison Metropolitan School District's largest middle school with over 700 students representing countries and cultures from all over the world. As part of the Welcoming Schools community, our school fosters a culture of respect and alliance between and among students, staff, and families, inclusive of the many identities of individuals in our school. For the 2018-2019 year and beyond, our community is committed to deepening our alliance with students and families of color to promote a stronger sense of inclusivity and community. Our scholars are not only linguistically, racially, ethnically, and culturally diverse, students at VHMS also demonstrate a wide range of academic abilities, particularly with regard to advanced learning and special education services. To accelerate the learning of all students in our community, we are committed to growing in our instructional practice and systems organization to enhance the learning opportunities for each student to achieve mastery of grade level standards and beyond. Equity Vision Velma Hamilton MS is a thriving community of allies and lifelong learners committed to growing students and creating learning opportunities that will close gaps of inequity
