Connect with tutors offering GCSE, A level, and degree biology support

In biology, we study life, how it works, and how exists and behaves in our world. It's a fascinating subject and students in primary school and secondary school in England have to study it as part of their compulsory science education and as an independent subject.

Students interested in biology in Leicester can opt to study it as a separate science at GCSE and A Level before moving onto a university degree in biology if they're interested in careers in biology.

Let's see why you should study biology, the challenges that biology students can expect to face, how students are taught biology in primary and secondary school, and how private tutoring can help biology students and professionals.

Why You Should Study Biology

Much like chemistry and physics, you should study biology because you have to. As with all compulsory subjects, if you want to do well at school, you have to do well in the subjects that you don't get to choose. Beyond that, biology is also an interesting subject that can teach you a lot of transferrable skills so you should pay attention in class whether you plan on studying biology after GCSE or not.

Biology, physics, and chemistry are also classes that give you opportunities to do research and experiments, which offer an effective learning experience. If you have a curious mind and like finding things out for yourself, working in biology can give you plenty of opportunities.

While these experiments and research will be chosen by your teacher when you're in primary and secondary school, by the time you reach university or are working in the field, you'll have more control over what you choose to study.

Biology, and the sciences in general, offer great opportunities for work. Around three-quarters of biology university students are either in work or further study 15 months after graduation.

Challenges in Biology

Biology isn't without its challenges, though. Much like with physics and chemistry, an understanding of maths and analytical skills will be necessary to do well in the subject.

A lot of biology takes place at a microscopic level and you'll need to be good at abstraction. The concepts they'll teach you on your biology course won't be visible with the naked eye so you'll need to understand the concepts without being able to directly experience them, at least at the level you need to understand them for your exam.

Studying Biology at School

As we mentioned, science is compulsory at both primary and secondary school. This means students have to study biology right up to GCSE. In primary school, this is usually taught as a science class that includes topics from physics and chemistry as well. By secondary school, students can expect to study physics, chemistry, and biology as independent subjects.

However, at GCSE, students will have the option to study double award science or each of their science subjects as a GCSE in its own right. The double award will still have students studying physics, biology, and chemistry, but they'll take fewer exams and be awarded two GCSEs upon passing the course.

The single science GCSE option allows students to earn a GCSE in each of the compulsory science subjects: biology, chemistry, and physics. Students interested in the sciences should choose this option if they can.

Private Biology Tutoring

Students and professionals of any level can benefit from private tutoring. Whether you need help in English, maths, or biology, a tutor can adapt their teaching to each student to ensure that they enjoy a learning experience that works for them.

Students struggling in their biology classes can work with the tutor to focus on the topics they're finding tricky. More often than not, the problem with lessons at school is that the teacher has too many students and neither the time nor resources to give them each the attention they need. Private tutors tend to work in smaller groups or with individuals and can work on just the subjects they struggle with and change the teaching approach to improve the overall experience for the student.

Private tuition can also help gifted students to advance beyond their peers. They may feel like they're being held back in their normal classes and working with a private tutor will allow them to advance in their studies and flex their cognitive muscle.

Even professionals with years of experience can work with private tutors. Whether you want to become a biologist, shift fields, or brush up on skills that you haven't used in years, a private tutor will focus the lessons on what you need to learn and teach them in a way that works for you.

Finding a Biology Tutor in Leicester

If you're looking for tutors in Leicester, you can search for them on the Superprof website. There are plenty of qualified and experienced tutors ready to start passing their knowledge onto you.

Generally, face-to-face tutoring is the most effective option as the tutor can tailor the sessions to their students to ensure they get the most out of every lesson. However, this does mean that the tutor will be spending time outside of the lessons as well and this can come at a cost.

You can always broaden your search to include online tutoring, too. After all, academic subjects like maths, English, and science can all be taught just as effectively over webcam as in person. Furthermore, online tutors tend to charge less as they don't have to travel to their students and can schedule more sessions each week.

Group tutoring is an excellent option for those on a budget. If you and some classmates, for example, need help for an upcoming exam, you could always share the cost of a tutor to help you with your study sessions.

Remember that a lot of the tutors on the Superprof website offer the first lesson for free. Use these free sessions to try out several different tutors before deciding on the tutor that's right for you and your budget.
