What Is It
Microbiology is a discipline of biology that focuses on microorganisms. Although many equate microorganisms with unicellular bacteria, there are more organisms that are studied in the field of microbiology. Beside unicellular bacteria, there are also unicellular eukaryote organisms, cell-cluster microorganisms, algae, and fungi that are investigated in microbiology.
A microbiology course is going to require a student to understand the structures, functions, environment implications, evolution, distinctions, history and theories associated with microorganisms on Earth. There are so many ways to differentiate microorganisms, like gram-positive, gram-negative, thermophiles, extremophiles, photosynthetic and consumers. With such a vast variety of microorganisms and their differentiated identities, this course requires students to learn a considerable amount of microorganisms individually.
Having a concrete understanding of microorganisms and microbiology is important for a number of careers. If a student is interested in a career in medicine, it is vital for them to understand the parasitic, neutral, and symbiotic relationships that exist between humans and microorganisms. For example, the digestive biome houses microorganisms that allow the digestion of food that our bodies’ enzymes cannot naturally break down.
In contrast, there are parasitic microorganisms that can harm the human body causing pathology and infections, like bacterial pneumonia. In addition, there are numerous positions within the field of microbiology that require a dependable understanding of microbiology and microorganisms. Some of these careers as a microbiologist include working in food and agriculture, environmental studies, veterinary treatment, research and development, and pharmaceuticals, just to name a few. Many fields of work that require microbiology are focused on preventing the negative implications associated with parasitic, harmful microorganisms. Due to the large impact microorganisms have on society, those who work to combat the proliferation of harmful microorganisms need to have a thorough understanding of how they function and ways to prevent the potential spread of colonies. Even for students who do not ever plan on using information about microbiology in their career, it is important to ace the course they are enrolled in. Given the challenging nature of this course, the best option for a student is to seek professional private guidance from an educated and trained tutor.
How Prep Helps
Having a professional tutor who is confident in the differentiation between all microorganisms will help supplement the material learned with your professor. Our tutors here at Miles Smart Tutoring are reliable guidance and resources for learning the material. Having the extra individual attention will help students who are working in a fast-paced course be able to refine their knowledge and expand on the information learned in class at a more reasonable pace.
Microbiology is a difficult course to master, but with strategic tools our tutors will increase your scores and confidence about the topic. Our tutors are capable of assessing a student’s performance in microbiology and adjusting their tutoring to deliver the necessary information in a format that is in favor of the student. In other words, if a student is having a difficult time understanding the DNA replication of bacteria versus a eukaryotic unicellular organism, the tutor may use visual aids or diagrams to help visualize the process occurring in the differing organisms. Methods of instructing, like diagrams and pictures, are invaluable tools that our tutors are trained to employee to make the information clear and concise.
In addition, our tutors are encouraging and work with great force to employ every technique they have seen yield significantly valuable results in the past. While professors have dozens, even hundreds of students, the tutors here at Miles Smart Tutoring are focused on solely one student for their lesson, capable of answer any questions the student might have that is preventing them from achieving a deep understanding of the topic. The independent attention ensures that our students can have substantial time to dive into their material and work on retaining the biological processes that are incorporate in their microbiology course.
Customization of Tutoring Courses
Some parts of the microbiology curriculum are more complicated and difficult to understand. Each student is going to have struggles with particular portions of the material and looks for some guidance on specific topics. Although our microbiology tutors are capable of teaching general microbiology, they are also extremely knowledgeable about the detailed inner workings of microbiology.
Given the student’s specific weaknesses, our team works diligently to pair the student with a tutor who is secure in the particular material the student is struggling in. Specifically, if a student is having a difficult time remember the enormous amount of microorganisms and their names, it would be beneficial for the student to have some kind of pneumonic devices created or something of that nature. Creating study technique to solve the problems will help their student recall the information more readily and effortlessly.
Our tutors are trained to employ a variety of tools to make the retention of the material easier. They work hard and are excited to see their students succeed in their courses like microbiology as well as their professional goals.
