I am a bioengineer and researcher so biology is the science I engage in every day. Sure biology can be challenging with mountains of new vocabulary words and it's propensity for delving deep into the minutiae of biological processes, but it is all so worth it - this is the study of life! Working with me, you will learn the best and most efficient way for memorizing and understanding all of the many intricacies of biology.

About Colin

Hello there! My name is Colin, and I have five years of experience tutoring math and science. I am a PhD student in the UC Berkeley-UC San Fransisco joint bioengineering program. My strong background in STEM qualifies me to tutor math and science up through lower-division college courses. Aside fro

Colin is a wonderful instructor. I am so pleased with how much my daughter has learned and how much confidence she has gained. He is quick to respond to any questions.
Larissa
Colin is a fabulous teacher. He worked with my children as they prepared for their AP Calculus exam a few years back, and we enlisted his tutorage as my son prepared for his Calculus 3 exam this year.
Colin knows his material. He is patient and ensures the student is keeping pace with him as he explains the methodology. He takes the time necessary to ensure the student knows the material and is able to follow the explanations. As anyone who has studied math knows, you can't rush the process. Each step is a crucial foundation for the next.
Thank you Colin!

Dr. Nupur is the best teacher ever, we feel lucky to have found her at takelessons.

Her background is impeccable and in addition, she is a teacher who cares. She cared about my daughter, her progress (high school, chemistry) and well-being. My daughter's progress in less than 1 month was amazing: she went from 'we're a bit concerned for your grade' to the point she was helping others in class.

Dr. Nupur is the kind of teacher you wish your kids to have. I recommend her highly.

Need help with your studies? I would love to help tutor you in your classes. Bring your materials and let's get started. I've taught classes in biology, environmental science, marine science, ecology and other life sciences, so I can help you make sense out of yours! Science can be confusing, but it can also be a lot of fun. I would love to help you to understand, and maybe even to love science. One of the best comments a student ever wrote to me was "I used to hate science. After your class this year, I am considering majoring in it at college!"

Private Biology Lessons Near You

Have you ever looked closely at life and tried to understand the exact difference between something that's living and something that's not? On the surface, life might seem like a simple thing to define, but it's actually quite complex. For example, why is a growing fungus consider life, but a growing crystal isn't? Are viruses alive? 

The study of biology can answer all of these questions and more! One of the natural sciences, biology is the study of life and living organisms. Biologists study chemical processes, molecular interactions, physical anatomies and structures, physiological mechanisms, and the development and evolution of all living things. 

When you study biology, you learn about how plants live, animals grow, and how your own body's cells derive energy and renew themselves using the foods you eat. Don't let the science of life intimidate you; you'll comprehend biology concepts quickly with a private biology teacher!

Why Learn Biology?

From the study of the tiniest, microscopic life to learning about biological ecosystems on a global scale, biology encompasses everything that lives on earth. It's study is essential to a variety of essential industries and pursuits, such as agricultural developments and improvements, environmental conservation, the treatment and prevention of disease, and everything in between. 

Without biology, we wouldn't have medicine, surgery, or understand how to eat healthy to keep our bodies healthy. There would be no life support systems, and as a result, no space exploration. We wouldn't understand anything about the lives of animals living in ecosystems all around us, and we wouldn't have the faintest idea about food chains. When you study biology, you can learn to preserve and protect all the life on earth. 

The Best Way to Learn Biology and What You'll Study in Classes

Sure, you can find lots of free biology lessons and instructional videos online, but the best way to learn biology is by studying one-on-one with your own biology tutor. In private lessons, you'll receive the type of personalized instruction and attention that simply isn't possible when watching videos online or studying in a larger class setting. You'll pick up new concepts and overcome comprehension challenges fast. 

Plus, every private biology class is different. Private teachers customize every lesson to meet their students' needs, in terms of preferred learning styles and abilities. For example, biology classes for children differ in terms of teaching methods and course content from biology lessons for adults. You'll stay interested, motivated, and keep up with your course work, while you learn at a pace that's comfortable for you. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner, Elementary, or Middle School Biology

Elementary and middle school biology focuses on teaching introductory concepts about the study of life and living things. Your private teacher will help ensure you have a strong foundation for more advanced study. Topics covered in these lessons might include the following:

  • Scientific method
  • Basic cell biology (what makes up a cell?)
  • Basic human anatomy
  • Categorizing components of an ecosystem

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate or High School Biology

High school level biology courses take a deeper dive into the science of life by inspecting all things large and small (microscopic). You'll learn about the biological processes that turn food into energy in a variety of living things and more. In intermediate lessons, your teacher might cover the following subjects:

  • Introduction to genetics (DNA, RNA, protein synthesis, and heredity)
  • Evolution and scientific classification of living things
  • Bacteria, viruses, eukaryotes, and prokaryotes
  • The human body and its systems

Sample Curriculum for Advanced of College-Level Biology

Whether you're signed up for an introduction to biology course to fulfill a general education science requirement or are focusing on a particular field of biology, an advanced tutor can help you master these high-level concepts and help you learn, rather than memorize, everything you need to know. Subjects covered in advanced lessons depend on the student's individual interests and goals, but your biology tutor might cover the following topics:

  • Biology lab work (dissection, creating slides, and dying cells)
  • Cellular and molecular biology
  • Microbiology
  • Organismal biology and ecology
  • Genetics and evolution
