Pedology is soil science, the study of the earth beneath your feet that very few people bother to think about. It may seem as boring as dirt, since it is in fact dirt, but soils play a vital role in several aspects of nature. If you're struggling to develop an appreciation for your course, Varsity Tutors can refer you to a Pedology tutor who can help you strive for your academic goals.
Here are some topics that are discussed frequently during Pedology tutoring sessions:
- Soil Structure (Particle Size, Moisture, Porosity)
- Types of Soil
- Soil Chemistry (including pH)
- The Impact of Soil on Plant Distribution and the Water Cycle
- Practical Lab Work
If your textbook readings feel a little too abstract for you to follow, your Pedology tutor may be able to illustrate some of the concepts by guiding you through an at-home experiment. For example, what type(s) of soil are in your home garden? If you analyze it and compare the results to the types of soil that various plants fare best in, you may discover which plants are likely to grow best in the environment you can provide. Any benefits in your class are a bonus!
