End of Fall Semester Support Availability

Please note, according to college policy, tutoring for take home exams requires written permission from faculty. For a student to work on an exam with a professional or peer writing tutor, faculty should email permission to an individual student or to a whole class; without this, the tutor cannot meet with the student about the exam.

  • Time management, study skills, and oral presentation skills appointments are available through Friday, Dec. 15.

  • Professional writing tutors are already heavily booked through the end of the semester; however, check the online schedule at go.middlebury.edu/appt as appointments open up frequently. To inquire about additional availability email: Jennifer Bates  jbates@middlebury.edu, Diane DeBella ddebella@middlebury.edu, Mary Ellen Bertolini mbertoli@middlebury.edu, or Catharine Wright cwwright@middlebury.edu. Inquiries need to include all possible appointment times during the day, and both an email and phone number. Professional writing tutors will complete tutoring on Friday, Dec. 15.
  • Peer writing tutors are available for drop-ins Sunday-Thursday in the CTLR from 7:30-midnight, and in the commons and AFC on additional nights, through Tuesday, Dec. 12.
  • Foreign language tutors will be available for appointments through Tuesday, Dec. 12.
  • Professional mathematics tutoring and related quantitative support will be available for appointments through Friday, Dec. 15. 
  • STEM peer tutoring officially ends Thursday, Dec. 7. During exam week there may be scheduled, peer-led drop-in sessions for final exam study and review. As it becomes available, information about final exam review sessions will be posted online at go.middlebury.edu/stemtutoring.


Check the availability for scheduled and drop-in sessions or make an appointment for professional tutoring services.

This semester CTLR is experiencing a substantial increase in requests for professional tutoring. At the same time, there is also a substantial increase in the number of last minute cancellations, as well as students failing to show up for appointments with no notification.

 If you need to cancel an appointment for non-emergency reasons, please contact CTLR and/or the professional tutor as soon as you know of the conflict (preferably with more than 24 hours notice) so that there is time to offer the appointment to another student. You can cancel online here go/appt; if you cancel online, feel free to contact the tutor directly as well to try to reschedule. Please also be aware when emailing professional staff that the hours of operation for CTLR are Monday through Friday from 9:00 to 5:00. If you email without an online cancellation at 6:30 pm on a weeknight, that is the same as cancelling at 9:00 am the next day. If you email without an online cancellation over the weekend, that is the same as cancelling at 9:00 am on Monday.

 Emergencies happen, but please do your best to make sure that professional tutoring can be as widely available as possible to all students seeking assistance.
