Tutor Timesheet Notes

Submitting Notes

For every tutoring shift that you work, you will need to complete two steps in order to be paid.  I recommend developing the habit of completing both of these steps immediately after each of your tutoring sessions.

First, you need to log your shift on Reed's new online payroll system, available at  There is no need to use the Comments field on this page.  Resources to help with Banner payroll are available at

Second, you need to submit notes for your shift to explain why you are being paid for that time.  In the past, this has been done in your timesheet's notes fields.  Beginning this semester, we will be tracking this information in a separate system, using the Google forms linked to below.

Every hour on your timesheet should fall into one of three categories:

  1. A regularly scheduled drop-in or head tutor shift. As in the past, there's no need to submit any notes about these shifts.
  2. A one-on-one meeting with a tutee. Please use this form to tell us about your session.
    • Writing tutors only: please use this form to log notes about your one-on-one tutoring sessions.
  3. Anything else. This includes orientation, optional training sessions, substitute shifts, shadowing, dorm events, extra drop-in shifts around exams, and anything else that doesn't fit into either of the first two categories. Please use this form.

If you have any questions about this system, please don't hesitate to contact David Gruber or Emily Suvada.

Google Forms Troubleshooting

What if I make a mistake?  Once you submit this form, you will be unable to edit your response.  If you would like to change your answers, just send Ryland an e-mail with the corrections.

"You need permission to access this item."  These forms require you to be signed in with your Reed account.  If your personal Google account is logged in, you won't be able to access the form.  You should switch over to your Reed account.
