A student and professor work together in a science lab.

Quantitative skills and reasoning ability have become an important component of many courses, majors, and careers (and life) beyond college.

Whether you are wondering what course to take, are already enrolled in a course with a quantitative component, or are working on a senior thesis, we have resources to help you. 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.

Peer Tutoring

Peer tutoring is available to assist students with homework, quantitative projects, and test preparation. 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. Classes for which tutoring is available range across the curriculum, including courses in biology, chemistry, computer science, economics, mathematics, physics, political science, and psychology. Request a tutor.

Math Review

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.
