Are you aware there are some pretty incredible peer resources on campus for STEM students?
The Center for Teaching, Learning & Research (CTLR) hosts STEM and Quantitative Skills Support.
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, they 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 all Middlebury College students.
Resources they offer:
- Professional Tutoring – The Director of Quantitative Support, Jeanne Albert, is available to assist students in a number of ways, including reviewing prior mathematics knowledge, discussing homework, preparing quantitative reports, and studying/practicing for tests. Students may schedule weekday sessions in advance, or may drop in, as needed, to LIB 225.
- Peer Tutoring – Peer tutors are available to assist students with homework, quantitative projects, and test preparation. Tutors typically work with students from a specific course at drop-in study group 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, psychology. The peer tutoring drop-in schedule is usually finalized during the first few weeks of the semester.
