A-Levels Biology Tutors

A-level biology tutoring involves one-on-one or small-group instruction aimed at helping students comprehend the material covered in their A-level biology course. It is split into two parts, with one part studied each year. The first part is known as the Advanced Subsidiary level (AS level) in year 12. The second part is known as the A2 level in year 13. A-levels are essential for entry into higher education institutions and are widely recognized worldwide as a standard for academic achievement. A-level biology is typically taken by students preparing for university or a career in science. Throughout this period, students study various topics, including molecular biology, genetics, anatomy, ecology, and evolution. A-level biology tutoring aims to enhance students' comprehension of these subjects, aid them in exam preparation, and foster critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Tutors employ various teaching methods such as lectures, discussions, activities, and practice exams to help students achieve their academic goals.

PhD in Cellular Biology

Experience

Hello! I am Dr. Warren Burns, and when it comes to mastering biology and acing entrance exams, consider me your secret weapon. With a Ph.D. in Cellular Biology and teaching experience, I can teach any biology topic. When I’m not busy shaping the future of young biologists, I am a cyclist and a volunteer at a local conservation organisation. This is where I incorporate my love for life sciences into positive impacts on our environment. I’ve gone through tough academia myself, so I’m more than a tutor. I'm a mentor who knows the tricks needed to succeed at the highest levels.

Tutoring Approach

My tutoring approach is about helping students understand the concept and tell them the exact key points to ace the exam. In my view, A-levels play a very important role in shaping your career. Hence, I make sure my students score high, so they have an open choice of the university and degree they want to select. Therefore, I prefer to stay focused on the content. Additionally, I use "Concept Clarification Carousel", a dialogue-based technique in which we dive into each topic, until it's crystal clear. I provide constructive, focused feedback. Another method I use is 'Power of Precision', where we edit your responses to be impactful, mirroring the quality that examiners are searching for.Are you ready to excel? Let’s start!

Reynolds

Great tutor, but sometimes it feels a bit rushed, especially when we’re covering new material.

Joseph

Wow, Dr. Jasper just gets it. He has turned my C’s into A’s. He's a miracle worker. Jasper is ready, articulate, and knowledgeable about every concept in biology. There is no textbook content, lab experiment, and research he doesn’t know how to teach! Jasper is always on time and communicates during the session to make sure that the material is understood. He sends slides after the class and will even send prep material like a youtube video before our lesson. Jasper is the reason I am doing better on exams. I wish I had found him sooner!

Ph.D. in Biotechnology

Experience

Greetings! I’m Poppy Jackson. With a vibrant 16-year career in education and a Ph.D. in Biotechnology, I am the seasoned teacher you’ve been searching for. I blend art and modern-day technology in my lessons to make them more relatable to the sharp Gen-Z minds. Ever used the concept of musical rhythm to understand metabolic pathways? With me, you will. It’s this rare combination of my interests and profession that keeps my teaching lively.

Tutoring Approach

Enter my lesson, and you’re stepping into what I like to call the ‘Learning Laboratory.’  I use colourful sketches and diagrams, which we draw together, to understand biological concepts. For instance, drawing the human circulatory system as a city map with highways, local streets, and hubs. Next, we plant the 'seeds' of fundamental concepts, ‘water’ them with practice, and 'prune'  confusions through discussion and feedback. I also use the "Stargazer’s Reflection", a method where we take a step back, and reflect on the ‘bigger picture’ of what we’re learning. No rushing through topics. We’ll move at a pace where understanding deepens, curiosity grows, and confidence blooms.Are you ready to explore Biology with me, where learning feels less like a chore and more like an adventure? Let’s start!

Miss Katrina is such a fun teacher who I’ve had the pleasure of studying with. She has improved my A-level grades. As a student who has tried out many tutors, I can definitely say that Katrina is a high quality teacher. When she says that her sessions are interactive, you better believe her! As opposed to other tutors, she regularly asks questions on the content to guarantee you’re actually understanding it. What I really like about her is that after teaching a topic, she asks you to explain the whole process back to her, to consolidate what you have learnt, notice mistakes in your concepts, and make it easier to remember. This active recall in her sessions is something that many teachers these days lack. Only after having a few sessions with Katrina, I’m already feeling much more prepared, and the subject is less daunting now.

Cynthia

Katrina is always on time, a joy to study such a boring subject with, and extremely knowledgeable.

Experience

With a cup of tea in one hand and a marker in the other, I guide my pupils through the pathways of biology, making stops at the wonders of the cell, the mysteries of DNA, and the marvels of ecosystems. My students often tell me they can hear the passion in my voice, and it’s true. I live for those moments when a challenging concept suddenly clicks, and their faces light up. And in this process, I’ve not only taught, but learned so much about patience, empathy, and the learning styles that each student brings to the table.

Tutoring Approach

As a biologist, I believe that the best learning happens when students are as excited about the subject as I am. That’s why I start each lesson with a real-world question or problem. This invites my students to think critically. Whether it’s discussing the ethical implications of genetic engineering or exploring the ecosystems in their own backyards, I make Biology personally meaningful for my students. Interactive and hands-on activities are a must in my teaching approach. I love taking my students on nature walks to observe local flora & fauna or guiding them through dissections in a lab setting. These experiences are when the abstract concepts suddenly become real.

Mphil in Microbiology

Experience

In the four years since I earned my MPhil in Microbiology, I’ve found that tutoring is my dream job. I’ve worked with a wide range of students, from those just dipping their toes into the world of Biology to those preparing for university-level studies. My MPhil background allows me to bring a deeper layer of understanding to my lessons. I can share not just the ‘what’ but the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ of microbial interactions, and I love seeing my student’s eyes light up when they grasp these concepts.

Tutoring Approach

In my biology classes, I believe in the power of visualization. I prefer using science models to explain the microscopic world. Whether it’s a 3D-printed double helix of DNA, a detailed cell model, or fun digital simulations, I use such tools to explain tough concepts. One of my favorites is the "EcoSphere," a closed aquatic ecosystem model that allows students to observe real-life interactions between organisms. I also frequently incorporate "BioMania," a set of engaging and educational games that reinforce key concepts.

Experience

I'm your friendly, approachable, and slightly quirky A-levels Biology  tutor. In my 4 years of teaching, I made sure I broke the norms and became someone with whom students could relate. By day, I'm teaching the young brains struggling with their Biology course. And by night, my love for Human Nutrition and Dietetics makes me experiment in the kitchen as an aspiring chef. 

Tutoring Approach

My teaching style? Think of it as a mix of a friendly chat with a mentor and a hands-on science experiment. Instead of droning lectures, I turn facts into tales, making each lesson feel more like an episode of a thrilling podcast. Imagine learning about DNA through a narrative that’s as fun as your favourite mystery novel. Next is my "Collaborative Problem-Solving Strategy." In our sessions, we are a team. We tackle challenging problems together, and we solve them as partners. It's not me handing down knowledge. It’s us discovering and learning side by side. Plus, I’m big on feedback. I've created a system, where my students and I keep a shared log of our sessions, our progress, and our goals.
