Like stated above, pretty much think in terms of opposites. In the oxidation half-reaction, the unique species on the left side of the equation will be the reducing agent (it is being oxidized, losing electrons), while in the reduction half-reaction, the unique species on the left will be the oxidizing agent (being reduced, gaining electrons). It's kind of counter-intuitive, but memorizing that the opposite applies when naming the agent works.
