Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Online Anatomy Tutoring review by Rebecca
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.

Online Anatomy Tutoring review by Chelsea
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.

Online Anatomy Tutoring review by Colin
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.

Online Anatomy Tutoring review by David
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...)

Online Anatomy Tutoring review by John
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.

Online Anatomy Tutoring review by Brianna
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.

Varsity Tutors can help you connect with an experienced anatomy tutor who can help you learn the different systems and structures of living organisms. Whether you need regular review sessions or help to prepare for an upcoming exam, your anatomy tutor can work with you one-on-one to provide you with additional academic support. Private instructors can work with students of any age and at any level. If you're taking an anatomy course in high school or at the collegiate level, the immense number of concepts and systems you must become familiar with can initially seem overwhelming. However, working with a private instructor can help you to break down the individual pieces so they are more individually accessible.

You don't have to struggle with this content alone. Keep reading to learn more about the skills and concepts you may review as part of your anatomy course and how Varsity Tutors can help you connect with expert anatomy tutors.

What Is Anatomy?

The study of anatomy dates back more than 3,500 years to the ancient Egyptians. Scholars discovered the Edwin Smith Papyrus, which is dated to 1600 BC, but some believe it is based on work that could date to as far as 3,000 BC. The modern anatomical study can be traced back to about 2,000 years ago when Greek scholars and scientists began formal studies that are the foundation for modern medicine.

Today, anatomy is a broad heading for the structural study of various parts of the body and how they relate to one another. Physiology, which is typically studied in conjunction with anatomy, is the study of how these parts function and the body as a complete unit. Gross anatomy, also called macroscopic anatomy, is the study of the parts of the body that are visible to the naked eye. Components such as the skeletal system or the heart are included in gross anatomical studies. Histology studies various types of bodily tissue at the microscopic level. Studying cells at the microscopic level is called cytology, and neurophysiology is the study of the nervous system and how it functions.

What are some of the skills an anatomy tutor can help me learn?

Working with a professional anatomy instructor can help you learn more about the various skills, concepts, and terminology found in various anatomy courses.

Some of the courses that focus extensively on anatomy include developmental anatomy, cellular structure, cell and tissue biology, histology, cell and system biology, veterinary gross anatomy, anatomy and physiology, gross anatomy, comparative vertebrate anatomy, neuroanatomy, embryo and fetal anatomy, and systemic energy metabolism.

Some of the common concepts you may encounter as part of your anatomy courses include the function of organ systems, observational and data analysis, identification of anatomical structures, and practical laboratory and dissection techniques.

Proper anatomical terminology is an area you may want to review with your private instructor. Learning the language of a subject makes all aspects of working with the field easier. When using anatomy terms, it is assumed the body is in an anatomical position. For a human, this means standing upright facing forward with hands to the side and turned forward.

Some of the standard terms you may encounter during the course of your studies include superior, inferior, anterior, ventral, posterior, dorsal, medial, lateral, ipsilateral, contralateral, intermediate, proximal, distal, superficial, deep. Upon first glance, you may think these terms look familiar. However, when used in an anatomical context, the meanings may deviate from your expectations. For example, superficial and deep are words you may use on a semi-regular basis. However, when applied to discussions of anatomy, superficial means towards the surface of the body and deep means away from the surface of the body. Superior and inferior are another set that may initially feel familiar, but when used to describe anatomy may seem confusing. Superior means above another structure, while inferior describes something that is below another structure.

Whether you need help reviewing individual concepts and terminology or you want more comprehensive academic support as you work your way through a challenging course, private sessions can make a big difference in how efficiently you spend your time reviewing your class materials.

How is anatomy tutoring different from taking an anatomy class?

Taking a class and working with a private instructor is different in a variety of ways. Regardless of the type and level of anatomy class you are taking, the teacher has a scheduled curriculum and academic standards he or she must meet. While each teacher has a slightly different instructional style, the methodology of presenting the information in order and assigning work based on the information presented will remain largely the same. While this is an efficient method of instruction, it doesn't always make complicated material such as anatomy easily accessible to students. This can be especially true if the course you are taking isn't part of a degree path in which you are invested.

Anatomy tutors have more instructional freedom. They can take the time to get to know you personally along with your learning style, academic strengths and weaknesses, educational goals, and even outside areas of interest. All of these components can then be used to inform the instructional delivery method and topics for your private sessions. This allows your instructor to create engaging content that can make the material more personally accessible to you. If you don't understand something, you can ask questions directly without fear of holding up the class and review the concepts or terms until you are comfortable with your understanding. This type of personalized instruction is impossible in a classroom setting because of the student to teacher ratio.

Another essential difference between classes and private instruction is the way they are scheduled. Classes have a schedule based on the needs of the school rather than the individual needs of a student. You must plan your other courses, work, and personal schedule around the courses in which you enroll. When you work with a private instructor on the other hand, you have greater personal freedom. Private sessions can be scheduled throughout the week as well as on weekends during the morning, afternoon, or evening hours.

Whether you need ongoing support throughout the duration of your course or you need targeted assistance in preparing for an upcoming exam, your private sessions can be tailored to meet your needs. For many students, their learning needs will change throughout the course. Private instructors anticipate this and can pivot and change lesson plans as needed to reflect your most current learning needs and goals.

If you've been struggling to meet your academic obligations in an anatomy class, working with a skilled private instructor can be invaluable. Not only can they help you with the topics of the class, but they can also offer assistance on the best practices when it comes to taking effective notes, time management strategies for testing and keeping up with your course work, and tips on researching and studying on your own outside of your class or private sessions.

How can I get started with anatomy tutoring?

Varsity Tutors makes it easy to get started with Anatomy tutoring in a few different ways. You can choose to work with Anatomy tutors in person or via our secure online Live Learning Platform. Whether you decide to work with an instructor locally or remotely, you will receive the same type of personalized instruction and benefits described above.

The key difference between the two options is in the ease of scheduling. Trying to find someone who is both local and an experienced anatomy instructor can be challenging to do on your own. Even when you do find someone, preferred session times may quickly fill. When you choose to work with a professional instructor remotely, you have more candidates from which to choose. Instructors are located throughout the country and in many different time zones. This can make it easier to schedule private sessions with someone at popular times, such as before or after school. It can also make it easier to schedule later sessions after extracurricular activities are completed.

Both formats allow you to work with your instructor face-to-face. In person, you can choose to meet at your home, in a local library, or another nearby public venue. When you work with an instructor online, you can work from anywhere you have a phone, tablet, or computer and a reliable internet connection. This may mean you are working on your anatomy studies from home, at school, or in your vehicle outside of a coffee shop depending on the day and your personal schedule. When you log into our secure online learning environment, you will see your teacher as if they were seated across from you. You can still talk to them and receive feedback and instruction in real time throughout the duration of your session.
