    Any Neuro tutors?

    Advertisements



    Is anyone good at Neuro and can tutor me? Will pay cash. Looking for an hour or two per week.

    I'm worried about the first Neuro exam coming up in 3 weeks. I feel like I am missing out on some of the larger topics.

    They have large group TA for this class, but no small groups, so thus was looking for some extra help.

    Let me know.

    Thanks!

    Rahul's notes (2x) + Matt's notes (as many times as you can) = victory

    I agree with Arkie. Both sets of notes are really good.

    I would suggest doing Glasser's question packages before the exam. Not sure if he still hands those out but i'm sure kids in your class have them. Neuro starts coming together closer to the end of the class.

    If I may say so, I applaud the OP for asking for help. Neuro at AUA is quite unorganized to say the least. I know of students who barely passed and cruised through other much difficult courses. Likewise, students who struggled in other courses, basically got by in Neuro.

    Glasser is very sloppy, arrogant and his notes are unorganized like a first grader. If you make the effort to attend every class, you will see how poorly he writes his notes, literally more horizontally than vertically.

    As for other peoples notes, I fell for that trap in reading Matt's notes and Rahul's notes and barely passed with a C. The class is a mess. Matts notes are FAR too detailed with an emphasis on material he presented that semester, not this semester. Rahul's notes are a paragraph format which has a great summary, but might not get the job done.

    If you can find someone who is a current med 3, who is a TA, try to get his notes, you probably know who I am talking about.

    The average on the 2nd and 3rd mini dropped and had everyone saying, crap.

    Its not an easy class, the teacher makes it harder.

    Glad your asking for help, dont take advice from anyone, I passed the class just as the above posters may have done, but solid advice Im giving you here, looking for a current Med 3's (a guy's) notes. Matts notes are too old and detailed. Try to go to class and absorb what you can, although it is very difficult.
    Get through this semester, almost half way!

    the notes i wrote were only meant for myself. i had the same problem as you so my solution was to sit in class and literally type as much as i can while my roommate drew all the diagrams. however ppl saw me typing furiously and wanted to see *** i was doing, so i agreed to share whatever i had.

    i'm glad they helped but they are no means a replacement for a textbook. i had a really good neuro book i used to understand whatever topics weren't explained well. it was a paperback with a black cover but the name is escaping me atm bc of a 15 hour shift today

    i'm still surprised my notes are still circulating around and you're right, they may not be completely pertinent to what you're doing right now

    what i suggest for those going into neuro next semester is to pick up someone's notes, whether they be Rahul's, mine, Phil's (which a lot of people used back when I took it) etc etc and use it as a guide during class to making your own notes. Dr. G is a great teacher but sometimes tough to follow so if you have something in front of you that you can follow along with and make changes to, i think that will benefit you the most.

    Great posts by the way! Rahul- great notes, glad you made them available for all these students. The printers go crazy with your notes. Matt- great, detailed notes as well. Its too bad Glasser's teaching style is hard to adapt to and students must resort to older notes. There probably will not be a day someone has to resort to old Dr. Singh notes, for the sole reason of teaching, I believe.

    Props to you guys for making a resource available. I didnt touch the text, used the notes and got by, but for anyone trying to do well, dont just print someone elses notes, these are from them sitting in class and understanding material and typing it up.

    In my opinion it is important to go to class whether it make sense in the beginning or not. I used Phil's notes, Rahul's notes and my own notes. I would go to class, take down whatever Dr. G wrote or said and then re write my notes following Rahul's notes and adding extra details from Phil's. Another thing is that you have to go over the notes more than once (don't delay studying for neuro till two days before the exams, you need to give the material time to absorb). However, in my opinion you have to take your own notes and if you don't understand anything just ask Dr. G he is nice to you if he notices that you are in class every day. Good luck
