GCSE and A-Level Biology can be complex (rather like the human body itself). To get the best marks you have to tackle challenging concepts and cover a large range of material. In one-to-one sessions with a Biology tutor, you can spend time focusing on topics you struggle with and make sure you have a thorough grasp of all the content on the syllabus.
A tutor will help you make the most of your understanding of Biology with tips on how to brush up your exam technique to convert your knowledge into all-important marks.

“Hi, I'm Sohini. I'm a fourth year medical student at Cardiff uni and keen to help students with Science and Maths GCSE subjects. I can also help with medical school applications, especially personal statements and interviews. ”
I have watched the tutorials and am very appreciative of the effectiveness of the sessions. He has made good progress in those two lessons and already feels more confident about sitting the paper. I like your encouraging attitude and the ability to explain things clearly. Chris is finding the sessions very beneficial. Thank you, Matt.
Lorenzo has been great for my son. He totally understood the brief to help fill gaps in my son's knowledge in certain areas of the iGCSE Sciences and has been forensic in his approach. Amenable and well mannered Lorenzo made a great connection instantly and, as a result, the Tutorials went without a hitch. Lorenzo also provided thorough notes that my son will find invaluable going forward. We will be back for more!
I've had her for the past 4-5 sessions and I must say that she is a true enhancer. Her sessions are so interesting and she always prepares the material beforehand so that you gain the background knowledge. Also, she is really kind and friendly - which makes it even more easier for me to learn. I would actually recommend her to anyone who needs help with A level Biology. Thank you so much for your help!!!
Jack is an outstanding tutor: he has the ability to express difficult things in a way that my son was able to grasp; he is patient and understanding and I can't thank him enough for being so kind in going over and above the call of duty in his willingness to help by pre-planning and being so very generous with his time. Every student needs a Jack!! Highly recommended.

I make sure we're doing what the student wants, whether that's going through a topic, explaining something or going through practice questions.
I use the classroom as much as possible, usually for writing notes and diagrams. More so at A-Level, when the concepts are more difficult and a diagram can help.
Words are made up of parts, and knowing what each part means is helpful. Hydrolysis literally means "water-splitting" and describes reactions where larger molecules are broken down into smaller ones using water.
Lots of students say that the classes are too big in school, or that they don't have time to ask teachers after lessons. In my tutorials, we take time to explore things in a little in a bit more detail.
Students often want advice on how to answer exam questions, because there's a huge amount of material to learn for the Biology exam so technique is often neglected.
Our tutors have been busy answering questions their tutees struggle with. Take a look at their subject answers here:
