CTLR’s professional staff and peer tutors partner with students to help enrich your academic experience at Middlebury. There is no charge for our services.
Monday - Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Peer and professional tutoring is available when fall and spring classes are in session. During the winter term, peer and professional tutors may have limited hours.
The CTLR may be open but faculty and staff have limited availability during school breaks. Please confirm your meetings.
Peer tutoring only occurs on nights before classes occur and may be limited adjacent to breaks due to tutor availability.

As the semester comes to an end, Dean of Curriculum Grace Spatafora asks faculty to allow students time in class to complete their Course Response Forms. In a recent email, she stated “response rates are typically between 80 and 90% when students are provided class time to complete these forms, and they drop to well below 50% when we rely on students to complete the forms outside of class.” Instructions on how to manage Course Response Forms will be sent to faculty in a separate email shortly. Online information can be found from Academic Affairs.
