Academic Support Services

Division of Student Services


Reed is a place where intellectual life is paramount; the primary goal is not learning to make the grade but learning to learn. Academic Support Services offers peer tutoring, workshops, and individualized support to help you get the most out of the Reed curriculum. In consultation with your faculty adviser, please take advantage of these free services.

Incoming students, this page is for you!

Peer Tutoring

Reed provides each student with up to one hour of free individual tutoring per subject per week for many classes.  In addition, drop-in tutoring for a variety of subjects is available at the Dorothy Johansen House and several other locations on campus. Visit our peer tutoring resource page for more information.

Workshops and Academic Coaching

Would you like a refresher on how to use logarithms or exponents? Want to hear time management tips from your peers, and offer some ideas of your own? Looking for inside information on how to prioritize your reading? Share your ideas and learn from others at workshops scheduled throughout the year.

Staff members are available to discuss study skills, quantitative skills, learning styles, time management, test anxiety, procrastination, and academic stress. To learn more, visit our academic coaching page.

Online Resources

In addition to the in-person resources detailed above, we have a variety of digital resources, including the handouts from our workshops, and links to tutorials, videos, and software found on the web.
