I have a bachelors in biomedical engineering and I am a graduate student researcher in computational biology, so biology is the science I engage in every day. Sure, biology can be challenging with mountains of new vocabulary words and its 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.

I have majored in Biology at MIT, where I took many courses on molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, organic chemistry, biochemistry, and human diseases. As a result, I can help students with biology in many levels, including I also conducted research on cancer and tissue engineering at the Massachusetts General Hospital, the National Institutes of Health, MIT, and Harvard-MIT HST.
Because of the extensive background in biology, I am able to break down complex concepts for the younger students and am able to also help college students. Having worked with many students, I understand that students have different demands from school and their schedule. As a result, I first meet with the students to determine and adapt my lessons accordingly. I also talk with the teachers as needed.
I also always carry around AP Biology prep books, SAT Biology prep books, or college biology materials (depending on your levels) so that the students can work on the practice problems during the ...

10 years of math/science tutoring experience, and a semifinalist in the USA biology olympiad competition. I stress long-term understanding instead of short-term memorizing of vocabularies.
I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My long-term pricing is very negotiable if we work together for an extended time.
I have always been a self-studier my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best

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!"

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 ren
ew themselves using the foods you eat. As intriguing and fascinating as this subject can be, many find it difficult to grasp some of the concepts and components. If you’re struggling through an AP biology course or your university-level biology class, allow a biology tutor to help.
Here at TakeLessons, we feature AP biology tutors and college-level tutors who are eager to help you master this subject. Don't let the science of life intimidate you; you'll comprehend biology concepts quickly with a private biology teacher! Follow along to see if signing up with one of our online biology tutors is the right decision for you.
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. Its 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 life on earth.
Understanding biology is an important skill to have. Maybe you’re considering a career in the field of biology, or perhaps you’re looking to simply ace your next biology exam. No matter what your biology goals are, you don’t have to go at them alone. When you sign up with a biology tutor, they will help you every step of the way.
