How can Anthropology tutoring help you succeed?

Anthropology focuses on the structures and processes of human life, whether these are material objects, cultural or social practices, methods of communication, or skeletal remains. As a discipline, it emerged in the late nineteenth century as an attempt to understand the diversity of human life. American anthropology is traditionally divided into four fields: sociocultural, biological, and linguistic anthropology, along with archaeology. This makes anthropology a very diverse discipline, and it is not uncommon for an individual to become immersed in his or her specialty to the exclusion of other anthropological aspects. If you are studying this broad and intriguing field, you may quickly find yourself faced with foreign material that seems out of your depth. Whether you have fallen way behind in your studies, or you are looking to make the honor roll, hiring a tutor will greatly benefit you.

Sociocultural anthropology (which is often called social anthropology in the British tradition and cultural anthropology in the American tradition) is the study of human cultures, societies, institutions, and practices, often through qualitative methods such as ethnography. While it initially approached traditional societies, sociocultural anthropology now considers any culture a legitimate object of study. Biological anthropology is the study of skeletal remains in order to understand evolution, behavioral ecology, non-contemporary illness, and the cultural context of remains, such as burial. It differs from the field of biology insofar as biological anthropology takes human beings (and, in evolutionary cases, other primates) who are no longer living as its object of study. Archaeology differs from biological anthropology in that it is the study not of human remains directly, but of cultural remains and the various objects of ancient societies: their use, production, value, and meaning. Linguistic anthropology is more closely related to sociocultural anthropology, but while the latter tends to focus on myriad systems and processes, the former is specifically focused on the cultural systems and processes of human communication, including technology (from pre-literate communication to the stylus to the cell phone) and performance (such as theater, ritual, or speech acts). As you can see, there are many different types of anthropology and learning about each type can be overwhelming. That is where a tutor comes in; Varsity Tutors will step in to find you a tutor who will make this subject easier to understand.

Online Anthropology Tutoring review by Brian
The student has an upcoming biological anthropology test, so he asked if I could go over some of this topic with him. We covered some of the basics of taxonomic categorization, natural selection, evolution, creationism, human evolution, and historical trends in anthropology.

Online Anthropology Tutoring review by Stephanie
The student and I went over her Pre-Algebra homework over subtracting integers. I had her write down the rules of this as well. We then proceeded to go over her Humanities (Social Studies); more specifically we went over the 4 sections that are going to be on her test early next week. We completed the interactive online web lessons and self-assessment quizzes. Later on we studied over some Latin and completed the online web lessons and self-assessment quizzes for that course as well.

Online Anthropology Tutoring review by Jeremy
Today's session was highly productive and fairly straightforward. We simply reviewed the student's sociology assignment with the aim of bringing it up to top quality work. The assignment consisted of defining various terms, and then providing examples of those terms from the student's life. In many cases, the definitions and examples she gave were strong, and required only minor modifications. In a few cases however, it was necessary to rework the definition and examples entirely. Overall, we vastly improved her assignment.

Online Anthropology Tutoring review by Clifford
We exchanged emails, then met to discuss the scope of the project and initial idea - a research design project for an MS-level sociology/public policy class. We chose the effects of corporate policies on aging populations. We discussed operationalization of variables and agreed to exchange drafts by email.

Online Anthropology Tutoring review by Benjamin
The student has a social studies test on Thursday, so we spent a long time finishing the study guide for his test. We talked about what would be on the test and we decided that it would be a good idea for me to create a practice test for him to take tomorrow. He also expressed interesting in working on argumentative writing prompts, so I told him I'd work on a prompt for him for tomorrow as well.
