Middlebury students in a wide range of courses and majors benefit from the resources available through CTLR.
• If you are enrolled in an introductory STEM course (math, science, social science, logic) check the drop-in peer tutoring schedule to see if there is a weekly session for your class.
• Perhaps you would like to get more practice with fundamental concepts, to either prepare for taking a course or to supplement your work in a current course—see below for links to practice and review materials, as well as other online resources.
• Some students haven't had a math class in several years, and aren't sure where to begin or how to assess their own skills. We can provide assistance to you as you plan your class schedule.
If you are thinking of enrolling in a course that has a significant quantitative component but you're not sure if you have sufficient math preparation, we can help. The Director of Quantitative Skills Support, Jeanne Albert, can provide diagnostic and placement assistance, as well as practice exercises. To schedule an appointment with Jeanne, click here.
