About ACE Peer Tutors

Most students will initially meet with a trained Academic Consultant for Excellence (ACE) peer tutor or First-Year Seminar mentor, who are trained in course-load planning and basic time management and study skills. ACEs will be available beginning the first day of classes.

Book an appointment with a trained peer ACE at go.middlebury.edu/appt.

Become an ACE

CTLR hires Academic Consultants for Excellence program (ACE) each summer for the coming academic year. If you are interested in working for the CTLR and being an ACE tutor, you can submit an application. Applications will be accepted and read up until July 31st. Interviews will be scheduled via zoom for August.

ACEs work with student clients on time management and other study skills. Previous experience tutoring is helpful but not required; there is a five hour training and ongoing supervision to teach you how to do this work. ACEs can mostly set their own hours and are always welcome to add project work for Learning Resources to their client hours to guarantee they have the work they need.

Strong candidates will have good communication skills, the ability to respond to emails quickly, to reliably show up for meetings with clients, and to work independently. We look at GPA in context and are always interested to hear from candidates who have successfully dealt with a substantial challenge to their learning experience.

Questions about the position can be sent to Jennifer Bates, Director of Learning Resources, jbates@middlebury.edu, and you can also book an appointment with an ACE at go.middlebury.edu/appt to get an in-depth look at the position.
