Genetic Engineering Tutoring FAQ
Genetic engineering is a unique and difficult field that seeks to apply new discoveries to poorly understood systems. Despite so many recent advances in elucidating the mechanisms by which genes work on a molecular level, there are still many aspects in the field that are unknown. These challenges, however, have not halted progress and there have been many notable accomplishments, including engineering bacteria to produce biofuels, creating crop plants that supply essential nutrients, and developing a host of animal models of human disease. Even with a solid foundation in genetics, however, many students find the application of that knowledge to be problematic.
Genetic engineering is a complex field with a lot of information to take in. An unenthusiastic or unprepared teacher can leave one lost and confused, and trying to self-study with textbooks is equally as daunting. Fortunately, there are a number of private tutors who can provide crucial guidance in the field. If you are someone who is struggling with understanding various concepts in genetic engineering, contact Varsity Tutors and ask for help connecting with a tutor who is familiar with the field. By working with an individual who has knowledge of the broad range of systems in genetic engineering, and who can assess your training as part of a program of genetic engineering tutoring, you will be able to prepare for academic success.
Even for a student with a comprehensive background in biology, there are many challenges to doing well in genetic engineering. Planning a project requires facility with online databases of gene sequences and construction of a suitable vector. This is usually an in silico first step, followed by in vivo construction in E. coli. Each of these steps has many potential pitfalls that can be addressed and prevented with tutoring, even if the project is one carried out just in a classroom setting or as a thought exercise for homework. For example, a plasmid that replicates in E. coli uses a different sort of machinery than one that replicates in Bacillus subtilis. The novice genetic engineer may not realize this distinction and waste valuable time troubleshooting transformation protocols when the real issue is one of plasmid incompatibility. Genetic engineering in eukaryotes adds a whole new layer of complexity. Nuclear genes cannot be stably expressed from plasmids, since there is no analogous structure native to eukaryotes. Eukaryotic genes also include introns, and a genetic engineering construct made only from the exons of a gene will not fare well in most systems. The issues go on, and can turn a project that should take a week or two into one that takes months. Genetic engineering tutoring can help solve these issues before they become compounded problems.
Because genetic engineering is a complex and difficult subject, working under the guidance of an experienced tutor is an excellent way to develop a better understanding of the material. Your tutor is skilled in taking difficult concepts and explaining them in a way that is digestible and easy to understand. Moreover, your private tutor is committed to your success and is happy to accommodate your busy schedule.
Varsity Tutors can help you connect with graduates from many of the finest genetic engineering programs to guide you through your coursework and projects. When you work with a private tutor, you are able to study in the comfort of your own home, or anywhere else in your area that is convenient and comfortable for you. Moreover, you can choose between learning through in-person tutoring or face-to-face online tutoring over the Internet. Either way, your tutor is happy to oblige. Contact our educational directors today and let us help you connect with an exceptional genetic engineering tutor!

Recent Genetic Engineering Tutoring Session Notes
The student said she needed help with her biology project on chemotaxis. We read through her lab and discussed what she needed to do; she has some questions to ask her instructor. Before we meet next time, she is to start writing her lab report.
We reviewed the nervous system, specifically the distinction between some neurological disorders and neurodegenerative diseases. We also went over some of the "big-picture" information, as I had her explain the digestive system and the nephron. I think she will be ready for her exam in two weeks.
During today's session, the student and I worked on a practice set for the biology assessment test. Although we made good progress, he struggled with some of the problems. The main issue was that it was difficult for him to comprehend what was being asked of him; this is a consequence of his reading-comprehension issues. To address these difficulties, I suggested certain strategies he could employ to make educated guesses on the questions he struggled with the most. Overall, it was a productive session.
The student requested that I help her review Chapter 47 of her biology textbook. Since the chapter focuses on animal development, I used the diagrams in her textbook as visual aids, which were extremely helpful. We covered details regarding fertilization, cleavage, gastrulation, organogenesis, and morphogenesis.
The first thing we did this session was to discuss the geometry test she had the previous day, and I was pleased to hear that she felt she did extremely well. It seems as though our first two sessions paid off, and I couldn't be more excited. We then went on to thoroughly cover her biology chapter on female reproduction. She started off saying she didn't understand it, but by the end I felt like she had a good understanding of big-picture ideas as well as an impressive grasp of specific details about FSH, LH, estrogen and progesterone secretion. Overall, I'm impressed with her ability to pick up information quickly and with her verbal accuracy when explaining concepts.
The student did her spring break science homework, which consisted of 34 questions. She only got four wrong. I went over the concepts, behind the topics covered by the questions. We analyzed the questions she got wrong in more depth. Overall, she did well, and had a productive tutoring session with me. We are going to start doing more sample exams to start preparing.
