Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Online Biology Tutoring review by Adam
The student and I started working on his Bio assignments. I taught him the concepts embedded in Chapter 8 of his textbook (rotational motion and angular components of Newtonian physics). Using that knowledge, we completed his conceptual homework problems together. Towards the end of the session, we also reviewed concepts from circuits, electricity, and waves as they pertained to his MCAT class.

Online Biology Tutoring review by Oriana
We reviewed evolution and the mechanisms by which it may occur. We also went over some questions the student had trouble with from the inter session assignment. Then, we spent the rest of our time learning about natural selection in detail and discussed stabilizing, disruptive, and directional selection and possible situations for each case. The student's exam is next week, so we will meet at least a couple of times before then to review the material.

Online Biology Tutoring review by Hannah
The student had just started the nervous system in her biology class, but her particular period hasn't covered much yet because of assemblies getting in the way. She had a study guide to work on and her teacher expected at least the vocabulary to get done. We went through each vocab word and I had her try to guess the meaning of it. Then I would help her get to the right definition. Finally, we would sometimes look it up in the chapter ensure the correct and formal definition. There were a few questions afterwards asking about the neuron and how it all works. She had a drawing of the neuron in class, so we used it as a diagram to help answer the questions. I had explained to the student a little bit more in detail than what her book necessarily went into just so that she would have a further understanding as to how it worked. In addition to the neuron, the central nervous system was also on the worksheet, and those were just basic questions about the structure of the brain.

Online Biology Tutoring review by Laura
Tonight I taught the student the respiratory system. We went through the major organs and cell types involved in breathing. We also focused on gas exchange and the molecules involved. We covered several respiratory disorders and the part of the brain that is responsible for breathing. We finished the session by completing a chapter quiz to review the concepts.

What is Biology?

Biology is one of the most widely studied subjects in the broader academic category of science. Technically, biology is classified as a natural science. This is due to its focus on living things. As a field of study, biology's roots can be traced all the way back to the 1700s and the work of Carl Linnaeus. The advent of the microscope in the 17th century is what led to biology becoming a serious field of study. With the power of the microscope, scientists of the era were finally able to examine things like cells, bacteria, and other tiny organisms on a deeper level.

Since those early days of biology, the field of study has grown tremendously. Today, it encompasses a number of topics that are at the forefront of scientific discovery. There are also a wide variety of sub-disciplines within the broader field of biology. For example, biologists who focus on studying the environment are called ecologists, whereas those who study animals are called zoologists. Other subdisciplines of biology cover things like immunology, biochemistry, botany, evolutionary biology, and even genetics.

Whether you're just starting out on your biology journey or you're an advanced student, you can get help with your coursework by signing up for biology tutoring. Working with a private instructor is a great way to build your understanding of foundational topics in the field or to expand your understanding of more complex sub-disciplines within the field. Your instructor will focus on the specific biology topics that you need the most help with in order to ensure that you're getting an efficient and effective supplement to your biology education.

Learning Biology

The roots of biology are planted very early on in the educational process. Even though students don't usually start taking formal biology classes until high school, they'll spend their early years learning about scientific topics that will help them once they get to those formal biology classes. For example, younger students will spend time learning about animal and plants and their different classifications while in elementary school. These are things that will prepare them for a more rigorous study of living things later on in their academic careers. These early years are important because it helps students become more comfortable with biology concepts.

As students progress forward with their education, they'll start to learn about more and more advanced concepts in the field of biology. For example, the National Human Genome Research Institute has laid out a suggested guideline for what a student's first advanced biology course should cover. This includes things like using both the qualitative and quantitative methods of observations, describing the structures and functions of different parts of cells, and understanding and being able to explain the purpose of DNA and RNA.

Do you need help with any of these topics? If so, then you may benefit from signing up for biology tutoring. The quickest way to get started with biology tutors is by reaching out to us directly. Consider doing so if you're interested in getting help with developing your understanding of biology.

Testing and Biology

As one of the core scientific subject areas, biology is a subject that is often tested. You may be asked to demonstrate your understanding of biology in the classroom or when taking standardized tests. For example, if you're a college student who wants to test out of a biology class requirement, then you may take the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) test on biology. Performing well on this test could allow you to skip over a class that you would otherwise have to take. If you feel that you already have a strong understanding of biology, then this could be a worthwhile option for you to pursue.

However, if you decide to take the CLEP test on biology, then you'll want to spend a good amount of time preparing for it. This is something that biology tutors can help you with. The CLEP on biology has a time limit of 90 minutes and features 115 questions. It focuses on the broad content areas of molecular and cellular biology, organismal biology, and population biology. Within these categories, you may be asked questions on things like the chemical composition of organisms, various parts of cells, evolution, social biology, and more.

Working with a biology tutor is a great way to prepare for any exam that features biology questions. This is because your instructor can focus on the specific biology topics that you need help understanding before taking your upcoming exam. You'll be able to work quickly through the biology topics that you already understand at a high level and can spend as much time as you need to on the topics that you're having a tough time with. This creates an efficient and effective test preparation process that can help you feel more confident on the day of your test.

In addition to helping you with your biology knowledge, your instructor can also help you develop your general test-taking skills. For example, you can spend some of your time together learning about how to deal with restrictive testing time limits and how to manage your time more effectively when taking important tests. If you've ever struggled with test anxiety in the past, your tutor can even spend some of your time together showing you relaxation techniques that you can use to deal with test anxiety if you start to experience it on your upcoming biology exam. These are skills that you'll be able to use on the exam that you're currently studying for as well as on any future exams that you take. Thus, test preparation biology tutoring provides a well-rounded learning experience.

Why is Tutoring Effective?

When you sign up to work with a biology tutor, we'll start the process off by connecting you with an experienced educator who can start working with you quickly. We'll make every effort to connect you with instructors who are able to work around your existing schedule, as well. This makes it easy to get the academic assistance that you're looking for, even if you already have a full schedule.

Once you get connected with your instructor, you'll be able to start working with them through a series of one-on-one learning sessions. Your instructor can create a customized lesson plan for you that's based on your specific academic needs and targeted with your growth in mind. You can take as much or as little time as you need on each biology topic that your lessons cover. For example, if you have a hard time remembering the functions of different parts of cells, then your instructor can spend extra time with you on this. You can go through each part of the cells that you're studying at your own pace and ask your educator for additional guidance with whatever functions you're having the hardest time understanding. You can also move through the cellular functions that you already understand as quickly as you want.

In all, this creates an entirely personalized learning experience. This type of educational assistance is hard to find through other academic opportunities. For example, in the classroom, teachers simply don't have enough time to devote this amount of attention to each of their students. This is why signing up for tutoring is a great way to fill the gaps between what's being covered in your biology course and what your current understanding of the subject is.

How Can You Get Started?

As detailed above, biology is an extremely important field of scientific study. You'll need to have a solid understanding of biology if you want to work in industries like medicine and research. However, biology can also be a challenging subject to fully understand. This is where biology tutors come in. Varsity Tutors would be happy to connect you with private instructors who can help you work through your problem areas in biology. You can get the focused guidance that you need to prepare for an important exam or to just feel more confident with your biology coursework. Consider reaching out to us today if you think that you would benefit from this type of educational assistance. We'd love to work with you and hope to hear from you soon.
