Academic Support Services

Welcome to the Biology Center

The Biology Center offers drop-in tutoring in the Biology Labs from 7-9pm Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Qualified peer tutors are available to help with analysis of lab data, writing lab reports, or questions about course material. To get the most of your sessions here, please remember the following:

  1. The tutors are available to help you find your own way through your assignments and goals at Reed. Having questions prepared helps them help you.
  2. We encourage everyone to work together while at the same time being considerate of the tutors and the other students.
  3. Please remember, as with everywhere at Reed, behavior in keeping with the Honor Principle is an expectation.
  4. Sign in before every visit. This lets us know which subjects students are seeking help with and aids us in scheduling tutors appropriately.

If there are ways we can make the Biology Center a more productive resource for you, please contact Carey Booth at, or if you have questions about Academic Support at Reed, please contact David Gruber at
