Preparation for USABO - animal anatomy & physiology
Next session on Dec 2, 2023
Getting A+ in the most challenging level of biology in our school and earning a 5 in AP biology exam, I am also a national top 10% scorer in 2023's USABO and a global gold medal winner of 2023's BBO. This is a preparation course for USABO and specializes in animal anatomy & physiology section, which is beyond the scope of AP biology. However, this course would welcome learners at every level.

About the Tutor
I am a high school student from China, and I am here to help others to master biology. My hobbies include playing piano, playing chess, and swimming. However, what I really like is biology. Getting 5 in AP Bio and A+ in the most challenging level of biology our school offers, I am also a biology tutor that has won gold medals in Bio-Olympiads.
Animal development - this session would introduce the embryonic development with more details, while also clarifying the concept of morphogenesis and elaborating on how cytoplasmic determinants and inductive signals regulate the fate of cells. As every session before, this session would also go over some problems from USABO past papers that are related to the contents in this session.
Neurons, synapses, and signaling - this session would cover the structure of neuron, resting potential, action potential, and neurons communication. In addition, this session would go over some problems from USABO past papers that are related to the contents in this session.
Nervous systems - this session would explore the components of nervous systems as well as delving into some disorders related to nervous systems. Problems from USABO past papers that are related to the contents in this session would also be discussed.This would be a general review of what we have learned in the previous sessions and more practice.
Sensory and motor mechanisms - this session would first give an overview of sensory receptors and how they transduce signals and then explain each sensory organ with details, which would include anatomy and function of auditory, olfactory, gustatory, visual, and tactile organ. As usual, problems from USABO past papers that are related to the contents in this session would also be discussed.
