Biology

Much like the world around us, biology can seem a vast and incomprehensible subject; our tutors help students to distill the important facts and concepts.

Biology Tutoring

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 am in my first year at university, studying mathematics at the University of Cambridge. In my time at Winchester College, I often helped others when they were struggling with their work for IGCSE or PreU maths and sciences, both my peers and boys in the younger years. I also spent time helping with science lessons in local primary schools. I enjoy helping others to understand difficult concepts in maths and science

I have been selected for the UK team for the International Olympiad in Astronomy and Astrophysics, which takes place in India in December. I have been training for it over the past few months, and will continue to until December. I also reached final selection rounds for both the Chemistry and Biology Olympiad teams.

Over the summers of 2014 and '16, I designed and built this website, and have been webmaster since. ...
I am currently medical student in St George's London, and I studied Natural Sciences in Cambridge. I have over 3 years experience teaching a broad range of subjects up to and including A level mathematics and science. I take a personal approach to tutoring, adapting my teaching style to each individual student to help them reach their full potential. ...
I have been tutoring in the private sector since 2007. Whilst completing my studies I had experience tutoring mathematics for ages 12-16 (including GCSE). During my gap year I worked as a cover supervisor at Simon Langton Girls' Grammar school where I had experience teaching mathematics to Year 8 (12-13 years old) and to a GCSE class. I also had experience teaching Core 1 (AS mathematics model) to a group of highly able students who were taking the exam a year early. Whilst completing my degree I had further experience tutoring GCSE mathematics.

I attended Girton College at the University of Cambridge and studied on the Natural Science Tripos. She took modules in mathematics, chemistry, material science, biochemistry, psychology, neurobiology and physiology. My specialist interest was in physiology and my final year project explored the development of the human middle ear bones. I recently completed a Masters in Clinical Neuroscience at King's College London in which I achieved a distinction and was awarded the Gold Medal for achieving the highest mark in the year. I have since returned to King's to undertake their four year graduate medicine course. I took A-Levels in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology and Physics as well as a AS Level in Ancient Greek.

I am passionate about tutoring mathematics as believe the analytical and problem solving skills it develops are crucial for a whole range of academic disciplines or careers. In my spare time I am a keen cyclist and I race for King's College London Cycling Club of which I was also the 2015-2016 President. ...
I went to both a Grammar school and Millfield boarding school where I achieved my GCSE's and A-levels (Maths, Chemistry, Biology, Geography). In my final year at Millfield I sat the SAT and SAT II (Math & Biology) exams and went on to study Neurobiology at Harvard College. After completing my undergraduate degree, I am now studying graduate medicine at Kings College London. Before starting my second degree I went to China where I worked as a teacher and as an Education consultant. I have been working for Wentworth for over a year now, mainly focusing on the ISEE and SAT exams. ...
I’m a postgraduate medical student at King’s College London and Bristol University graduate with a passion for a wide range of subjects. Studying humanities to A level, focusing on crop genetics during my undergraduate degree and now working to become a doctor translates well into tutoring a varied curriculum and ensures I’ve had plenty of experience in the process of learning. I'm an enthusiastic tutor; effective tutoring raises children’s confidence and gives them skills which they can take far beyond our sessions, which is my favourite aspect of the job. ...
My passion for tutoring stems from my own personal experience with understanding the impact that excellent teachers can have on our lives. At Winchester College, the leadership and inspiration of my teachers motivated me to succeed, and is reflected in my consistently strong academic record. Having now graduated with a First Class BA in Natural Sciences from Cambridge and successfully completed an MSc in Environmental Technology from Imperial College London, I am keen to share my understanding and passion of the sciences and mathematics with new students. ...
I graduated from Magdalene College, Cambridge in June 2017 with an MSc (1st class) and BA (1st class) in Natural Sciences. I was awarded the Natural Sciences Prize from Magdalene College in 2016 and 2017 for achieving outstanding results, as well as the Macfarlane-Grieve Prize and Garrett Prize for music. I have been tutoring since 2011 both privately and as a volunteer, specialising mostly in Mathematics and Music. Whilst my tutoring approach is results focused and I have a successful track record for raising students' attainment grades, I enjoy the scope private tuition offers for tailored teaching that helps students learn effectively and think beyond a mark scheme. ...
