Here are some of my favorite Science resources. Check back again soon, this list is always growing! I also recommend school textbooks, your local library, and used bookstores.
(Gr. 9-12) CellsAlive.com – Learn about the life cycle of a cell, including reproduction, structure and live cell growth videos.
(Gr. 9-12) Zooniverse.com – A fabulous resource for science...
The heart can be a serious pain. Here are a few things to help you out:
Know the ABC's of blood flow. Just like the ABC's is one of the first things you do in school, it's also one of the first things blood does. Check it out: What are the first vessels leading out of the heart? The Aorta, the Brachiocephalic artery (Right), the
common carotid artery (Left), and the subclavian artery...
One summer I was ambitious and signed up for a condensed Anatomy & Physiology II course. Having just completed Anatomy & Physiology I and Microbiology during the spring semester, I thought just taking one college course over the summer would be a piece
of cake. How wrong I was! Learning the major systems of the human body in a full 16 week semester can be challenging...
Although I do not own a TV (and have not for pretty much all of my adult life), I occasionally allow myself to partake in mind numbing and will watch past episodes of a show via Netflix. It would not have occurred to me I could learn something helpful about
studying and yet I did!
Although I did not realize it at the time, Bones (cerebral/quirky weekly drama about a forensic anthropologist...
I have found particularly with science but with other subjects as well that the cheesier you make a memory tactic the more likely it is to stick! For example: in anatomy I always say that the brain is the controller - therefore every one else heads to talk
to him (via nerves) to do their job. We know that the body is composed of a whole bunch of cells - we can think of them as a communication...
IF I could go back in time and give my younger self some advice on how to be a better student, be more successful in school, life, etc, I would definitely tell myself that being involved in everything comes at a cost. It is better to find a few things that
you like to do, do them well and often, than feeling stressed because there is so much on your plate at one time. Being a 'Jack of all Trades'...
Since I am new to the site, I would like to tell you a little bit about me. I worked as a Supplemental Instruction leader for an Anatomy and Physiology course for over two years. This position is given to those who have taken the course and received a high
grade and who have participated in training regarding tutoring styles and study skills. I held three sessions per week which were optional...
Let me know!
If you are in the preliminary stage working toward applying for a nursing program, I would love to meet you! I know it is hard work taking the courses you are studying and completing all requirements needed to make your application. Since 2010 I've studied
biology, chemistry, microbiology, anatomy and physiology, in depth. These are not the easiest subjects to learn, especially if you are returning...
Would you believe that lung cancer was a somewhat of a rare occurrence until the early to mid twentieth century? This fact is due to cigarettes gaining popularity in the 19th and 20th centuries. In the UK, among all cancer deaths lung cancer related deaths
rose from 1.5% in 1920 to 19.7% in 1947. Cigarettes aren’t the only cause of lung cancer, there are many causes not associated with smoking,...
The moans and groans are audible! "Why do I have to do homework??"
Let me tell you why I assign additional work outside of a tutoring session ... It is my job to be sure that you are able to apply and integrate the materials we cover in addition to being able to absorb facts and information. Sometimes what I call 'homework'
is nothing more than finding an article about the topic...
My professor complimented my human biology study techniques and asked me to be her TA. I did not have time to TA for her unfortunately, but I will share my study tips. I got my first A+ in this college class.
1. I did not read the chapters in their entirety because it was overwhelming and too time consuming.
2. I answered all of the review questions and made sure they were correct...
When I tutor people especially in the more challenging science courses like Microbiology and Anatomy and Physiology I see students just memorizing and not understanding to overall picture. Especially in Microbiology where you have to learn the make up of
different viruses and bacterial cells then use that information to see how that antibiotic works. What I found to work best is to ask why...
The philosophy of teaching I have embraced in thirty years of teaching medical students and college students is based on the belief that learning is student centered and that students need to be equal partners in the learning process. There must be present,
a student mentor relationship of trust. There should, however, always be an authoritative presence in the mentor. This leadership should...
When memorizing foreign or new terms in the sciences, namely Anatomy and Biology, I found it helpful to understand why each term was given its name. Ever wonder what "sternocleidomastoid" or "ribosome" means? The name sternocleidomastoid refers to its origin
and insertion points: it originates from the sternum (sterno-) and clavicle (-cleido-), and is inserted into the mastoid...
I'm new to this site and can't wait to help you. Got questions? I got answers! Whether you need some simple study skills and techniques or if you have very specific problems in a subject, I can help. Let me show you how all these subjects work together and
are not isolated disciplines that you're never going to use. I'll show you the relevance of each subject and how they're all integrated...
Nursing school can be tough! If you are having difficulty or would like assistance with your studies, please contact me. I have been a registered nurse for 17 years and will graduate this semester with my BSN. I have experience in education as well and have
a heart for teaching. I would love to work with you to help you succeed in this program.
I wish everyone the very best for...
Tutoring is never easy. But if I had to describe it, I would say its a session where you and a student sit down and learn together. Whether it be learning about each other or the material, it's all a part of the learning process. But going through school
I've noticed that a lot of teachers now a days don't work with all the learning styles possible which makes it hard for students to learn...
Whoo, most of us just finished midterms or, for the younger ones, first quarter. Quizzes, new material, projects, exams, and all of life's activities outside of school fly at you with lightening speed. Organization is key during hectic times. Go through
your class material every week. By organizing your notes, homework, and other class material in the appropriate folder/binders it helps review...
For anyone who is so interested in learning the human figure such as body features, facial structure, etc. I will be teaching easy step by step concepts to show you how to master what people think is so hard to do. Though, remember it always takes lots of
