Do you have a dissection specimen that you want to dissect but I don't have a group class for? Or would you prefer for your student to have 1-on-1 instruction? Then this is the class for you! In this one-time private class, you will dissect the specimen of your choice with me. Please send me a message prior to class letting me know which specimen you would like to dissect. Make sure you already have a dissection kit (listed in the Supply List below) as well as your specimen. Specimen choices...
This class is taught in English.
Students will be able to name standard dissection tools. Students will be able to perfect dissection techniques. Students will be able to observe the internal and external anatomy of the specimen they are dissecting.
I was a middle school science teach for 10 years and in that time, have lead hundreds of students through many dissections including the hot dog, earthworms, clams, crayfish, and sharks. In my college Zoology class, I was the only student to successfully extract the entire spinal nerve of a crayfish that the professor had ever had! I find dissections fascinating and a good stepping stone for any student interested in anatomy, physiology, zoology, or college sciences.
No homework required.
Dissection kit: There are many places to purchase a dissection kit. I will put a few options below but you may certainly purchase them elsewhere. https://www.homesciencetools.com/product/advanced-dissecting-tools/ https://www.amazon.com/Advanced-Biology-Anatomy-Dissecting-Dissection/dp/B017XY1FQS/ref=sr_1_4?crid=1QG89GJNFN5FS&keywords=dissection+kit&qid=1643390276&sprefix=dissection+kit%2Caps%2C494&sr=8-4 You will also need to purchase whatever specimen you choose.

Learn progress is assessed through the dissection technique during class. No tests are given.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Dissection tools are sharp and as such, your student must be mature enough to handle them on their own by your estimation. Reproductive organs are also a part of some specimens that students dissect. Though no in-depth discussion of reproduction will occur, these organs are named and their uses are defined during dissection.
