This is one of my all-time favorite subjects (good for you, right?). Unfortunately, it’s just memorizing a whole lot of everything, backwards and forwards. But, I hope to show you some of the tricks and mnemonics I have learned from taking it in graduate and medical school.
You don’t make your way all the way to medical school without getting a solid foundation in biochemistry (is there another point to biochemistry? … I kid, I kid). This class is pretty straightforward, but it is one of the more important classes to be very organized in.
This one is my baby (obviously, I mean I did get a Master’s in it, right?). I love all the squirmy little things that float around in the ocean and all the strange gray things found under the microscope. But, admittedly, cell biology and the medical sciences (Physiology, Anatomy, Neuroscience, Immunology, etc) are my favorite, hence the medical school thing.
A note for high school students (or their parents), don’t get worried by all the fancy-pants college and graduate classes, I also enjoy tutoring the high school level classes (dare I say… even more so?). In fact, at any given time, about 60% of the students I am working with are in high school.
Without a doubt this is my most frequently tutored subject. So much so that I should amend my WyzAnt title to: “Friendly, Interactive Chemistry Tutor,” but I love biology too much to do such a thing.
This subject is also the odd-man-out in that it’s almost 90% math. Chemistry has all-new fancy words and equations, but at the end of the day, it’s still basically just another math class. The only difference between chemistry and algebra is that in chemistry you now need to understand why you are using a given equation and what it is actually telling you.
Another unique aspect to chemistry, and one that I particularly enjoy, is that it’s just too easy to create insanely difficult questions that incorporate all kinds of different topics (yes, these are for you).
Although this course is usually crammed into Anatomy in high school and early in college, things start to get a little more interesting when the course stands on it’s on little two feet. All the sudden it’s not just “what is the loop of Henle,” but now you need to know every type of cell found in there and what happens to them when you eat a banana after drinking cool-aid in the desert.
So, I’m happy to tutor high school and college combined Anatomy & Physiology, or the stand-alone Physiology taught in college and graduate school.
This is for those fantastically dreadful 742 page research papers that you have to write. So, while you might be looking to start your English 101 essay on how “rad” your latest Spring Break trip to Acapulco was, I’m here for the science-y stuff. This includes everything from a high school science fair project to a generic college research paper to an all-out thesis paper.
In addition to the countless papers I have written for all the classes along the way, I have three published articles in peer-reviewed science journals, and completed a Master’s thesis.
If you need it, I’m here to help you brainstorm, outline, research, and write this thing.
Admit it, this class wasn’t as fun as you thought it was going to be. Well, that may have just been for me because I’m more of a cell and molecular type of person (get it?).
Because I do also have a strong background in Neuroscience, and there is not a separate section for it, that’s another course I’d love to help you out with.
