Class Experience

After the course, students should understand the following concepts: 

- Subatomic particles and the structure of the atom
- The definition of an element
- The elements carbon, potassium, sulfur: properties and uses
- How to read a Periodic Table square
- Biomolecules in a diet
- Carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids: structure and function
- Structure of DNA (backbone and bases) 
- DNA bases (ATGC) and matching strands with base pair rules
- Hydrophobic things vs hydrophilic things
- DNA mistakes and concept of mutations
- General cell theory and select organelles
- Cell signaling and junctions
I have been tutoring students for 6 years, and teaching middle-school level classes online for 2 years! I often teach science topics like the immune system, DNA, health, and organ systems. I've also taught cellular biology to in-person classes. 

To middle school students in particular, I often design year-long curricula to fill in the gaps middle schoolers experience with their science courses. In small groups, individually, or in classes of more than 200, I have successfully completed all of 6th grade/7th grade science! I've designed coursework, lesson plans, and resources that have received excellent reviews. 

As a Biomedical Engineering graduate, I have completed classes in cellular biology, physiology, anatomy, biomaterials, biomechanics, biosystems, and basic engineering concepts. In high school, I completed AP Biology and received a score of 5 on the exam. I have been tutoring AP Biology for 3 years since. 
Homework comes from a workbook that is distributed at the beginning of each unit. This workbook contains homework assignments questions, in-class activities, and extra resources.

Homework is assigned weekly. Homework is meant to be short-- less than 30 minutes each week-- unless students want to go the extra mile!

Though the homework is meant to be enriching and important, it is not meant to add stress to the course. The goal is for your learner to be happy and stress-free. So, if homework adds more anxiety to the process, feel free to skip it.
Students should bring their workbooks to class every time to complete the homework assignments early, take notes, or go over homework from a previous week. Even though students will bring their workbooks, there is no formal "note-taking." I will never require students to take notes, but they are welcome to do so and I'll be happy to accommodate that!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Each unit will conclude with a review game to measure student retainment. These games are meant to be conducted in an enjoyable and rewarding way! Participation is never required.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This course discusses bodily organs like the stomach, intestines, kidneys, mouth, nose, etc. There is no mention of reproductive organs.

There is also a brief discussion about proteins, fats, and sugars in a human's diet. If your learner is triggered or uncomfortable speaking about food or diets, this may not be the course for them.
