Academic Support Services

Division of Student Services


Because students strengthen talents and build new skills both inside and outside the classroom, Reed has developed several important resources to complement the curriculum. In collaboration with faculty, Academic Support Services offers peer tutoring, a cooperative study environment, writing support, workshops, and individualized coaching. Students should consult with their adviser about how Academic Support can help manage the demands of being a Reed student.

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.

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.
