Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
We covered approximately the first third of the Nervous System lecture in preparation for the upcoming exam. Topics included functions of the nervous system, parts of a neuron and their function, neurological cells, the CNS and PNS, sensory, inter-neurons, and motor neurons, the differences between the somatic and autonomic nervous system, the two divisions of the autonomic nervous system, etc. I have been very impressed with the student's focus and motivation during the sessions and she asks excellent questions.
We discussed the anatomy of the spine: we compared and contrasted cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacral vertebrae, looked at their form related to their function, and discussed the ligaments and joints that hold it all together.
We covered material for the student's final exam tomorrow, concentrating on the endocrine system- the area where she showed the greatest weakness this past semester. I also shared some last minute study tips.
Today we reviewed the body region vocab from last week. We also covered all of the general topics that the student should expect in the course. Lastly, we covered relative position (anterior, posterior, ventral etc...)
We reviewed her syllabus and began with a little review of what she had heard earlier in the day on the endocrine system. I threw her a few curve balls, in the sense of making her recall things from prior anatomy/physiology lessons...the role of osteoclasts, the idea that water follows salt, and she did fairly well. I still have not been able to acquire a copy of her text from the inter-library loan department of the library, but I have a very similar one. Her lab tests may be the most problematic because some of the questions require actually looking at slides under the microscope. As an example, she recalled that adrenal medulla was pale in the image she had been shown that morning. I emphasized, and her text clearly shows, that the medullary cells stain dark blue (on a good slide!). Anyway, we'll work on pattern recognition. She seems to have a pretty good notion of the functional side of the course.
The student is working on connective tissues in class! We covered the different shapes (squamous, cuboidal, and columnar), and where each type of cell is found in the body. We talked about how to identify different types of connective tissues from slide images, and what type of blasts from each type of tissue.
Today is the first session with the student. We reviewed the chapter on bones and answered questions from the study guide. We focused on understanding different types of bones, where they are generally located, and what distinguishing features are. We talked about diseases of the bone such as osteoporosis and osteomalacia.
The student and I reviewed the material that she has covered so far in her class, and I reviewed the test that she took last week so that I could see where she is having issues. I have suggested flashcards for studying/learning vocabulary, and recommended that she continue with using the interactive study materials that are available to her (I am familiar with the text/interactive programs). We also reviewed the PowerPoint notes pages she had from the last class, and did some clarification on the subjects of hyper/iso/hypotonicity, pH, DNA replication, and mitosis and meiosis.
We went over the integumentary system for the student's upcoming quiz. We focused on going over the slides and giving helpful anecdotes for topics that may seem confusing. I think she knows the information, but just needs to hear it in different formats to make it stick. She was very receptive to everything we went over and we have made plans to go over her next chapter which is bone.
We covered the upper extremity starting with the scapula, through the humerus, radius, ulna, carpal, metacarpal, and phalanges, showing the anatomical features of the bone that the teacher wants him to know, such as the glenoid fossa of the scapula. We also went over how to factor out quadratic equations that were squared and cubed.
Today we went over basic neural anatomy and physiology. This included the overarching function of the brain (to process sensory information and induce responses to those sensory stimuli), basic neuron anatomy, names and functions of neuroglia, a basic overview of different branches of the nervous system (CNS, PNS), characteristics of the reflex arc, and classifications of neurons. In order to help with her memorization efforts, the student should consider the overarching function of the brain, as I think this will make memorizing the functions and classifications of different cells easier.
How can a tutor help you master Anatomy?
Anatomy is an extremely complex topic, and the interconnectedness of bodily structures and systems compounds the subject’s difficulty very quickly. The material is detail-driven, and memorization is an essential skill. If you are hoping to become an anatomy expert, a specialized anatomy tutor may be the key to your success. Customized lesson plans and teaching strategies allow you to dictate the pace and direction of your anatomy tutoring. Individualized education plans allow your tutor to focus on the material most specific to your needs. Tutors meet when and where is best for you. Even if you are located outside the city, your tutor can meet with you online.
Anatomical terminology can easily become confusing. There is a significant difference between the coronoid and coracoid processes, and an anatomy tutor can help you remember which is found in the elbow and which near the shoulder. Need help remembering the order of the cranial nerves? Your tutor has you covered with memorization techniques. Whether you are learning about the ethmoid and sphenoid or the larynx and pharynx, a tutor can enhance your learning experience and help you master material. Personal anatomy tutoring allows you to focus on the material most important to your course, and you can work at the pace that best works for you. Each anatomy tutor is highly qualified, with a strong background in anatomy and the sciences. Even topics from physiology and biochemistry can appear on an anatomy exam, but your tutor can help you prepare to meet these challenges. Whether you are working through your first anatomy unit in high school, or are studying to be a physiology major, anatomy tutoring can help give you the confidence you need to excel.
