Proven Physiology Help For All Levels

Human physiology is by far the most common physiology course, and many schools pair it with anatomy. A private physiology tutor can help you with all of the rote memorization required in the course by sharing mnemonic devices that really resonate with you.

They can also answer any questions you ask swiftly, enabling you to seek clarification before a simple misunderstanding about the nervous system becomes a significant learning obstacle.

That said, human physiology isn't the only course you might take. For example, animal physiology entails the study of how animal bodies perform, including resource allocation, cell locomotion, and the interactions between cell networks. Your tutor can break these large concepts into more digestible pieces to help you study.

Improve Grades and Test Scores In Physiology

While software-based academic resources must stick to their set curricula regardless of a student's needs, a private tutor can design a complete study plan around your needs and goals. If you aren't positive what you might need the most help with, your instructor can make you a little practice test to assess your abilities and go from there.

Speaking of which, a private physiology tutor can also help you refine your test-taking skills. If you tend to spend too much time on a single question, your instructor can help you identify when it is time to take an educated guess and move on.

How much does a physiology tutor cost?

The price of private physiology tutoring is dependent on several factors, including the specifics of what you want to review and how often you plan to meet your instructor. For instance, you're likely to be charged a different hourly rate for weekly meetups than you would be for a single cram session right before a big test.

We can also facilitate a variety of cheaper alternatives, including group tutoring arrangements that allow you to split the cost of your tutor with other people and a live physiology class provided by Varsity Tutors. Contact us online or by phone for more information on any of these options.

How does online physiology tutoring work?

Your online physiology tutoring sessions will take place in a virtual classroom we like to call our Live Learning Platform. Our Live Learning Platform is equipped with several features designed to improve the study experience, including a virtual whiteboard that can help you take notes on physiological terminology and video chat capabilities to create the illusion of in-person instruction.

Our platform also records every study session automatically, so you can go back and revisit medical physiology or another topic at your leisure. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions about our Live Learning Platform.

Are physiology tutors worth it?

Independent research suggests that as many as eight out of every 10 students can potentially benefit from working with a private tutor, including high-achievers who already earn good grades. Furthermore, some of the study skills that you work on with your physiology coach are transferable to other classes and even careers, helping you feel more confident about whatever you plan to do next.

Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Online Physiology Tutoring review by Chelsea
The student and I met for the first time today at her apartment. We discussed the material that will be on her final and I got a sense for which topics she needs the most assistance with. We started with material from the beginning of the semester- energy and metabolism- and discussed the structure of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins and how they are utilized by the body, especially during exercise.

Online Physiology Tutoring review by Heather
Introduction and understanding the difficulties of course. Went over week 3 of notes involving the concept of action potential and how it is incorporated into the skeletal muscle. Session was very successful.

The student and I had a great session. We covered renal physiology, starting with glomerular function and proceeding to urinary concentration at the loop of Henle. We will move on to the distal tubule, collecting duct, and specific ion reabsorption kinetics, as necessary, before the student's test next week.

Online Physiology Tutoring review by David
We covered gastrointestinal physiology in detail. We reviewed respiratory, renal and gastrointestinal to ensure the student knew all the major concepts before her exam. The student was instructed on study methods and which areas in particular she needed to focus on to score well on her exam.

Online Physiology Tutoring review by David
Today we went over what to expect for the TEAS test the student will be taking in the fall. We are especially focusing on human anatomy and physiology. She will be enrolled in this class next semester, so we are covering the basics to get her prepared and up to speed. We will use a flash card tool in order to cover anatomy vocabulary terms.

Online Physiology Tutoring review by Leah
Today was our first session and I thought it went very well! First we went over the demands of the online course as it is very different from the classic lecture & lab combination, and then looked over the timeline of when the student wants to complete her assignments, quizzes, and final. We also went over study "tips" for this online course, such as highlighting what is asked in the open-book quizzes and worksheets so that we know what material is most emphasized on her final. We then spent the rest of the time going over the general concepts that were outlined in the first chapter, and then finally began touching on some chemistry that was outlined in the following chapter. All in all, I believe it was a great session and that we are a good fit! We will meet again next week at the same time (Wednesday, July 24 at 3:30), and we may work for 2 hours if need be.

If you think you would, then the quickest way to get started with it is by reaching out to us today. You can also keep reading the sections below to get a closer look at this subject and the ways in which working with physiology tutors can help you understand it on a deeper level.

What is Physiology?

At a broad level, physiology can be thought of as the study of how living organisms and beings function. As you may imagine, this means that a physiologist can study a variety of different things. For example, if you decide to work in the field of physiology you could study something as small as a molecule or as large as a human. This means that there are plenty of different niches within the field of physiology that you could pursue, depending on where your interests draw you.

Physiology is not a new academic subject area. In fact, it's been studied for thousands of years. The history of this subject dates all the way back to at least the 5th Century BCE. It was during this time that ancient societies in Greece, China, and other areas began developing their own understanding of physiology. A few Greek scholars are generally credited with developing the foundation of the modern field of physiology. These famous early physiologists were Hippocrates and Aristotle.

Still, it wasn't until the 1500s that the word "physiology" was actually created. This was done by a French doctor. From there, new findings of the circulation of blood in the 1600s spurned another period of growth for the still-fledgling modern version of the academic subject area. In the 1800s, Ivan Pavlov conducted a group of experiments on dogs and their conditioned responses to further spur growth and development in the field of physiology.

Learning Physiology

Physiology is a relatively advanced scientific subject area. For that reason, students won't typically start studying it until they've already graduated from high school and moved on to college. If you plan on pursuing a physiology degree while in college, then there are a variety of different courses that you can expect to take during this time in your education. For example, you may take a class on anatomy for human physiology or human growth and motor development. You could also take classes on neuroscience, medical sociology, the physiology of aging, and more.

You'll spend time learning about a number of different things during each of the classes that you take in pursuit of your physiology degree. For example, you'll learn about red and white blood cells, along with their compositions and functions. You'll also learn about things like how the human body uses electrolytes and what osmolytes are. These are all topics that you can get help learning more about by signing up to work with physiology tutors. If you find that you're having trouble with one of the topics that you're learning about in your physiology classes, then you may want to work with a private tutor. This is a great way to supplement your classroom learning experience and start making the academic progress that you've been working towards. If you're interested in working with a private physiology instructor, then you can easily get started with one by reaching out to us today.

Still, the specific topics that you learn about will vary some depending on your grade level and the specific scope of your degree program. You could study the inner-workings of intracellular communication, action potential, muscle tissue, kidney function, ion homeostasis versus normal hemostasis, and much more. Developing a strong understanding of the subjects that you study in physiology can be a hard thing to do without any guidance. If you think that you would benefit from having help with your academic pursuits in this subject area, then you may be interested in getting started with physiology tutoring. Consider reaching out to us today if you're interested in this unique educational supplement.

Careers in Physiology

Individuals who make a career out of working in physiology are called physiologists. You can find physiologists in a variety of industries, including healthcare, research, education, and academic writing. The amount of education that you'll need to work as a physiologist in one of these industries will vary based on the level of position that you're interested in having. For instance, if your goal is to become a biomedical scientist, then you'll likely want to work towards getting an advanced degree, such as a doctorate or professional degree. Biomedical researchers will spend their time learning how to prevent and treat diseases and creating and running experiments that are designed to help people improve their health.

You could also be interested in working as an exercise physiologist. These individuals use their unique skills to aid in the exercise process in a number of ways. You could work as an exercise physiologist by aiding in recovery or by helping to improve overall health, body composition, and flexibility. This type of work usually requires at least an undergraduate degree. You may also need an advanced doctorate degree or something similar in order to find the position that you're looking for within the field of exercise physiology.

Another example of the type of career that you can have with an academic background in physiology is physical therapy. You'll likely need an advanced professional or doctorate degree to work in this industry. If you earn one of these advanced degrees, then you can use your skill set to help injured people overcome their injuries or to prevent chronic conditions and injuries. Whatever career you hope to enter into, it's clear that you'll need a strong education in order to successfully get started in it. This is something that working with a private physiology instructor can help you with.
