How can a tutor assist you in conquering Paleontology?
The vast majority of life on Earth lived and died before humans were ever able to observe it. All we are left with are the imprints that the bones, feathers, and teeth of ancient living things left buried deep in the ground. Paleontology is the study of the remains of all the billions of years of life that passed before humans arrived on the scene. Paleontology tutoring can be the key to unlocking this amazing history, and Varsity Tutors can help you connect with an experienced paleontology tutor who can work with you to craft a plan to break down the wealth of information you are learning and make this material much easier for you to understand. This plan for understanding is where tutoring can really pay off. Lifelong learning is as much about forming good study habits as it is about learning particular bits of information. Skills learned in the course of paleontology tutoring can be used later in other classes or even after your formal schooling is completed. A paleontology tutor can help you learn these life-long skills.
Organization of materials, allotment of scarce study time, deciding what content to tackle first -- all of these are tutoring areas in which a well-trained professional can help you. A tutor can help with these quotidian tasks because they are themselves veterans of many of the finest academic institutions. They learned the material needed to do well in paleontology courses themselves as well as the skills needed to thrive under difficult circumstances. Part of the benefit of paleontology tutoring is the ability of a tutor to help you sift through the vast amount of material covered in a course and focus on what is really important for mastery of this broad subject. Paleontology is the overlap of geology, anatomy, ecology, and physics. A good paleontologist will need to know stratigraphy to understand the layering of rocks and how to compare decaying radioactive isotopes to discover the age of the rocks themselves. The identity of a fossil is often opaque to a layman or a beginner, but an experienced paleontologist will know which features are the most important in making an accurate identification. Much of that identification will rest on a sound understanding of animal anatomy and morphology. Despite challenges, scientists have a pretty good understanding of the ways in which many ancient animals, plants and ecosystems lived and worked, all due to the work of paleontologists over the years. As you learn the field, you will also have to cover all of this material. A paleontology tutor can make a profound difference in how well (and how rapidly) you learn.
