My name is Sam and I am currently a student at Mercy College, aiming for my bachelor's degree in exercise science. One of the classes I needed to pay very close attention to was anatomy and physiology because my future career would involve sufficient knowledge of the structures and functions of the body. There were times where I was struggling with course material, such as locating and naming bones and muscles. After going to tutoring, I was able to locate and name these structures on pictures and models. Usually when I tutor, students provide me with a list of bones and muscles they need to know and we go over these structures on a model or picture. We would break the list into chunks and go over 10 structures at a time. I would go over each chunk as many times as the student needs and also provide mnemonics that can easily help the student figure it out. At the end of the tutoring session, I provide a list of references that can help the student study and practice on his/her own.

I have been tutoring anatomy for about two years to students taking the anatomy and physiology lab course at Mercy. The students who came to seek my help were the ones who struggled and asked good questions. I usually worked with groups of 7-8 students, and rarely individually. I work closely with the students I tutor and make sure that they understand the material. For example, I come up with mnemonics that can easily help the student label a structure. For example, a student can remember that the fibula is the most lateral bone of the leg if they remember "fibuLATERAL". If the student still doesn't understand, I strive to go the extra mile to explain it in a way they will understand.

I want to help students expand their knowledge of the human body. A solid foundation in anatomy and physiology is important if the student wishes to go into health related careers. Therefore, please don't hesitate to reach out to ask questions or schedule a tutoring appointment.
