Human Anatomy Models Reinforce Classroom Lectures

You’ll see and touch anatomical models, helping you better understand the human body and functions of the body’s systems. The models include cells, skeletons, muscle structures and organs. Use these models to get a 3-D look at what is being discussed in class.

Tutoring Available

Everyone learns differently and everyone needs extra help now and then. Do you learn better in a group or one-on-one with a tutor? We offer both. View the schedules in the Resource Center to find out when tutors are available for the courses you’re looking for. You don’t need an appointment. Just stop by.

An example of courses covered in the tutoring schedule include:

  • Anatomy and Physiology I & II
  • Physiological Chemistry I & II
  • Physiological Chemistry
  • Organic Chemistry

Tips for Seeing a Tutor

A tutor will provide one-on-one help for material learned in your course. They are not a substitute for going to class and taking notes on your own. Here are some tips for getting the most out of your tutoring sessions:

  1. Come prepared. Being prepared means that you’ve done the assigned work/readings and brought your textbook, notes, pens, pencils, papers, highlighters, calculators, etc.
  2. Rewrite your notes in your own words in a way you better understand. This will allow you to better know which concepts you need assistance in more than others.
  3. Come with a friend or classmate. Research shows that studying with a partner aids in learning.
  4. Ask questions. This is your time so use it to your benefit.

When to See a Tutor

Seeing a tutor early in the semester will help you learn concepts. It’s also a good motivator because you’ll have a scheduled time to study each day or week. Seeing a tutor early can also help you build confidence in the material so that when it comes time to review for an exam, you will know the key concepts to review rather than having to do an all-night cram session.

Helpful Materials

Stop by and use the helpful materials that faculty has helped build. It includes a ‘library’ of textbooks for you to use in your learning. Subjects span across all majors in the Zuckerberg College of Health Sciences. Additionally, you’ll find flashcards, notes, PowerPoint presentations and posters to assist in your learning.

Flexible Space in Weed 100

Weed Hall 100 has been designated as an additional resource area. The types of things that happen here include academic programming, drop-in campus resources, small group tutoring, faculty-student enrichment review and quiet study. Feel free to study, write a paper or just relax with headphones in this space during available times.
