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 am taking a doctoral statistics class where the assignments are all theory and understanding of research versus specific math equations. Colin is great at helping me understand the material. I appreciate his tutoring skills. I will be using him again when I take my intermediate statistics and research class.

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 ...

Nayoon took my daughter from a failing grade to an “A”. I am indebted to her. My daughter loves Nayoon because she is interested, kind & cheery. She is ten steps ahead and understands exactly what the teacher wants her to learn. But, more importantly, Nayoon taught her how to think and not just memorize. Nayoon doesn’t try to waste time or spread out a lesson. She cares more about my daughter learning & absorbing & being prepared! My daughter now wants to take the AP exam in chemistry because Nayoon made chemistry interesting & understandable. Thank you so much!!! Hilary Kramer

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.

About Bill

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!"

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 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.

The Benefits of an Online Biology Tutor

If you’ve looked into taking any sort of class or tutoring lesson lately, you’ve likely noticed how many have turned to online platforms. From elementary school classes to university-level courses, many of these sessions are now available virtually. Yes, that means you receive instruction entirely over the internet. There’s no need to pack up your things and drive to a classroom or meet with your instructor in person. Online learning means you can sign on wherever and whenever it is most convenient for you. At TakeLessons, we understand the flexibility and freedom online learning can provide. That’s why we offer online biology tutoring sessions. Our online biology tutors can provide you with instruction whenever best suits your schedule. Book an evening session or wait until the weekend when you have more free time. All you need is internet access and a smartphone, laptop, or computer with a webcam to get started. Log on from your living room or sign on from your home office--the choice is yours. When you sign up for online tutoring with us, you’ll find that your tutoring sessions are easy, convenient, and hassle-free.

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. With a biology tutor helping you along, you’ll receive the one-on-one attention you need to reach your goals.

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. Our tutors know how to assess your current level of understanding and create a curriculum that will best serve your individual needs. Whether you’re struggling with a specific concept or you can’t seem to score well on your exams, your biology tutor can help. 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
