Why Study Biology?

Biology has changed beyond recognition in the last 50 years. The emergence of genetics and cell and molecular biology has yielded medicines and technology that affects all of our lives. Biology also opens doors to other arenas: the pharmaceutical industry, clinical medicine, and cinematography for nature and television programmes all rely on extensive knowledge in diverse areas of Biology.

Biology Tutors

Our biology tutors have all studied biology at university. One of the biggest challenges any biology student has to face is the vast knowledge base required to succeed. Our tutors draw on experience of science teaching and communication as well as higher education to share their excitement in the field. Our tutors are excellent at distilling the relevant facts and high yield concepts that students absolutely must know as well as cementing a large body of knowledge. Additionally, some of our tutors are medical students who can marry abstract concepts and facts with clinically relevant examples.

Biology Teaching

We teach biology at all levels including GCSE, A level, SAT II, AP, and IB. All of these syllabi have their idiosyncrasies that our international group of tutors are experts at navigating. In particular, we are very experienced at helping British students fill in their knowledge gaps in order to excel at the SAT II Biology exams in preparation for university in the US. Our teaching staff also includes biology PhD candidates and clinical medical students who can advise and teach university level biology and medicine.

I graduated last year with a 1st in English Language and Literature from the University of Oxford. My experience as a tutor extends across different levels and subjects, from teaching English as a foreign language to 11+ exams, and university entrance preparation. Throughout the years, I have worked with students on a wide range of curriculums to hone their skills and expand not only their knowledge, but also their interest and love for the subject. Having won a bursary to attend Wellington College in 2011, I studied the IB, and was one of the very few students in the world to achieve a maximum of 45 points. Some of the distinctions I was awarded for my academic performances include the Gavin Ewart Poetry Prize, the Verrall English Prize, the Music Essay Prize, and the Lady Emma Talbot Special Prize. I went on to earn a place at Oxford University where I read BA Honours in English Language and Literature. Following my Distinction in Prelims, I was awarded the Casberd Scholarship for outstanding results. ...
I am entering my fifth year studying Medicine at King's College London, a subject that constantly provides its scholars with evolving learning opportunities and requires a dynamic problem solving ability. My study in Medicine has two sides; I have a large interest in the innermost workings of the human body and find its intricacies fascinating, from hard numbers in physiology and biochemistry to the art of anatomy. On the other hand, I also enjoy the patient-doctor interaction and its cultivation through effective communication and problem resolving skills. I organise a London-wide society interested in the specialty of Sports Medicine with the aim of narrowing the gap between the professional and undergraduate worlds. This aim relies heavily on recruiting valuable speakers and opportunities, whilst coordinating the activities of my society and those of university-based societies. I also sit on the committee of the UK's undergraduate Sports Medicine society. My success through my medical career insofar has been built on utilisation of different learning techniques to understand and confidently apply information. I also embrace techniques such as goal-setting to formulate long term plans for personal and organisational development. I was educated at a state comprehensive in Garston, Watford. Throughout secondary school, I did not enjoy the teaching as I was unable to engage with the material or teachers. I missed out on valuable opportunities and my grades foundered. At GCSE level, however, I had great benefit after I started extra-curricular tuition, an experience that made my learning more accessible and enjoyable. Since then, I have embraced 'learning' as a process to be developed, understood and enjoyed. Throughout medical school I have aided colleagues with their own learning and last year, formally tutored for medical practical exams. Outside of Medicine, I like to do many things! I am a keen sportsman, representing King's College London Cycling team. I play a variety of different sports, and am still keen to throw a rugby ball around. I have an extensive reading list that I am working through, and I like to paint when I have a spare weekend. ...
I'm a final year medical student at King's College London and based in Surrey, having done my first three years and intercalated in Psychology at the University of Cambridge. I'm President of the university cycling club and have been tutoring for the last year for Wentworth Tutors. ...
I am a graduate from Cambridge with 6 years teaching experience at some of the best schools in the country, including St Paul's School, helping students of all ages and abilities understand and appreciate chemistry. I take great pleasure finding the best way to approach difficult topics with students and try to make all of my lessons as relevant and engaging as possible. ...
I am a future trainee solicitor at Linklaters LLP and am about to commence studying for my LPC professional qualification. I have a First Class degree from Oxford in Classics (Literae Humaniores), 3 A*s (English Literature, Latin, Ancient Greek) and 1 A (History) at A level, and 12 A*s at GCSE. This year I have been tutoring students for Latin and Ancient Greek A levels, and also offer tutoring in English Literature and History A levels, and most subjects at GCSE (available on request). ...
I have just finished a degree in Natural Sciences (Biological) from the University of Cambridge and am now at music college, pursuing my passion for guitar performance. I achieved 5 A*s at A-level (with a 96.1% average at A2), taking subjects: Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Religious Studies. At Cambridge, whilst covering the full range of biological disciplines in first year (from Ecology to Biochemistry) as well as maths, I chose to specialise in Physiology, Development, and Neuroscience in my final year. On top of this, I maintain an interest in Evolutionary Biology (I am a big fan of Richard Dawkins!). For several years at Tonbridge school, I was involved in a community action program called 'Science For Schools', where we would host groups of primary school children weekly, running practicals and performing exciting demonstrations for them; the purpose being to try to encourage enthusiasm for science ...
I graduated from Durham University in 2012 with a degree in Natural Sciences, specialising in Biology and Psychology. Shortly after graduating, I moved to London to begin work as a Medical Writer. This involved writing a variety of documents for the pharmaceutical industry for new or developing medical drugs.

In 2015 I made the change into teaching. I studied teaching with Goldsmith's University and specialised in Secondary Science. For two years I have been a professional Science teacher based in South East London. I teach pupils aged 11-18, teaching Chemistry, Biology and Physics to GCSE and Biology A-level. I am an enthusiastic and committed teacher and am passionate about helping young people to understand and enjoy science. I encourage pupils to think on their own, scaffolding their learning and slowly taking away training wheels so they have the confidence and self-belief to make progress on their own. ...
I graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2014 with a 1st class degree in English literature and Philosophy. During my degree, I spent a year studying at the University of California, Berkeley, which has given me an extensive understanding of the US college academic system. I have been teaching for the past 4 years, both privately - with a specialisation in English literature and language 11+ to A level, and in the non-profit sector, working as an academic support worker for the educational charity Into University. Most recently, I spent 2 years living in Mexico, teaching English to all ages, both privately and in a classroom setting. All of these experiences have given me a detailed understanding of the unique learning dynamics of different students, aged 5 to 50! I enjoy tutoring immensely, tailoring lessons to my students' interests, defining learning goals together helping to realise them, and making the learning process as enjoyable as possible. ...
