Quantitative skills and reasoning ability have become an important component of many courses, majors, and careers (and life) beyond college.
Professional and peer tutors are available to assist students in a wide variety of STEM subjects, including biology, chemistry, computer science, economics, environmental science, mathematics, philosophy, physics, psychology, and statistics. These services are free of charge to Middlebury College students.
Drop by the Hub
If you missed the open house, stop by MBH 209 (Armstrong Library) to find out more about meeting with a tutor or becoming one, scheduling appointments at go.middlebury.edu/appt, or just say hello!
Tutors typically work with students from a specific course at scheduled study sessions, or—when recommended by the professor—on a one-on-one basis. All CTLR peer tutors have been approved by a faculty member in the appropriate discipline and have received critically important training from CTLR in successful tutoring practice.
Practice and review materials are available for many precalculus topics, including algebra and trigonometry. See the math review information for a selection of downloadable files, links to online resources, and self-assessment quizzes.
Study, Engage, Learn
Peer tutors have compiled a list of strategies for success for several STEM subjects. Find out more in the Studying STEM resources.

The first half-credit courses at Middlebury began this fall semester. The courses vary from religion to an experiential learning capstone. The Middlebury Campus quoted Priscilla Bremser (Math) about the course Mathematical Problem-Solving, “I hope my course gives students with uneven mathematics backgrounds a chance to solidify foundational concepts so that they can succeed in calculus.” Read more of College Tries Out New Half-Credit Course System This Fall.

Clinton Cave (Neuroscience) was recently featured in TheScientist where he talks about the value of undergraduate research. “Middlebury’s undergraduate focus…is a real strength because it gives students early access to sophisticated labs, setting them up to succeed in STEM careers. It’s especially important that he help first-generation students, students of color, and women see a path forward, he says. ‘And it’s very rewarding to be able to pay for the mentorship that I’ve received over the years.’” Read more of Clinton Cave Investigates How Brain Cells Communicate.

Seven Days recently featured Biology Professor Greg Pask, the 2022 recipient of the Perkins Award for Excellence in Teaching. Student research assistants funded through the CTLR’s Undergraduate Research Summer Program spent the summer researching insect pheromones with Pask. Read the full Seven Days story.
