In biology, we study life and living organisms, how they behave, and how they interact with the world around us. This is a broad subject that covers everything from giant animals and plants to microscopic lifeforms like viruses, bacteria, and cells.
As one of the core sciences in the UK, most school students will study biology as a subject in its own right or as part of their science lessons throughout primary school and until their last day of compulsory schooling.
It's an interesting subject but with so much to study, it's hardly surprising that students don't always like every part of it or, in some cases, any of it! That said, biology is still an important subject.
Let's see the benefits of studying biology, the challenges students will face, what GCSE pupils learn about the subject, and how private tuition can help students of any level to get better at biology.
As the study of life, biology is useful for contextualising our existence, who we are, and how our bodies work. It also is the foundation for learning about health and medicine and you can't gain a strong understanding of either of these without studying biology first.
Biology is also one of the few subjects that's compulsory throughout primary and secondary school. Along with English, maths, and the other sciences (physics, and chemistry), biology will be with you throughout your schooling so you can't ignore it.
There's so much you can learn from biology and as an obligatory subject, it'll play an important role throughout your schooling even if you do eventually choose to drop it once you've finished your GCSE in it.
Biology can also help your career prospects. In addition to all the jobs you can get with a biology degree, science qualifications teach a lot of transferrable skills that can be used in any line of work. Whether you want to get into teaching science, becoming a scientist, or conducting research, biology is a good way to go.
There's a lot of life in this world so that means biologists have a lot to study. Many biologists tend to specialise further down the line but while at school, some students may be overwhelmed with all the different concepts they have to study in biology and even with the help qualified teachers and private tuition, there's no guarantee they'll excel.
There are also ethical issues that come with dissection and studying life. Some students might feel uncomfortable examining animals and dissecting them and while schools allow students to skip these sessions but that does mean they may also miss an important lesson.
Due to the unseeable nature of certain parts of biology, especially on the microscopic scale, it can be difficult for some students to comprehend these concepts effectively. It can be tricky visualising something so small that you'll never be able to see it with the naked eye.
Students taking their GCSEs in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland have the option to study either a double award GCSE in science that counts as two GCSEs or study three individual science GCSEs in physics, chemistry, and biology.
There's a lot of overlap between the areas of biology studied as a double award GCSE and the single science GCSE biology. Students learn about cellular structure and how cells work, plants and animals and their processes, breathing, respiration, hormones, and the nervous system. Genetics, genetic engineering, and chromosomes are studied as well as illness, the immune system, and other systems.
Each exam board (AQA, OCR, CCEA, etc.) provides a slightly different set of topics but generally, there's a lot of overlap.
For any student that needs help with biology at school, sixth form, or university, there are qualified and experienced private tutors who can help them to better understand the subject and improve their grades.
With the overlap with maths and the other sciences (physics and chemistry), you'll often find that there are tutors who specialise in all of them and any student struggling with the sciences can benefit from tuition that's tailored to them.
Private biology tutorials allow students to study exactly what they want in the subject whereas in school they have to cover whatever topic the teacher has planned for that day. If they miss a session or don't quite understand a certain topic, the tutor can cover it in more depth for them.
For any student looking to improve their grades in biology, it's never been easier to find a private tutor on the internet. Search for biology tutors on Superprof and you'll find plenty of potential tutors.
On Superprof, there are plenty of tutors who offer a trial session or a free hour of tutoring. These sessions are a good way to try out several potential tutors before deciding upon the tutor that's right for you. As it's only one tutorial, you probably won't be taught much but rather talk about the specifics of your tutorials, what you want to learn, what you struggle with, and when you'd like your tutorials to take place.
View several tutor's profiles, see how much they charge, and read reviews left by their other students before getting in touch with them. Once you've "interviewed" a few tutors for free, you'll know who has the relevant experience, who can teach you most effectively, and who you get along with the best. It might surprise you, but getting along with your tutor is hugely important as you learn better when you're happy and you may be spending a lot of time learning from them so you don't want it to become a chore.
Thanks to the internet, you can learn from tutors remotely so as long as you have a stable internet connection and a webcam, you can be taught from tutors anywhere in the world. If you're learning for GCSE or A Level, you might want to be taught by tutor based in the UK or who has experience with British qualifications and exams but for university studies, it won't matter too much where your tutor is from as you'll be learning more about biology as a subject.
Since online biology tutors don't need to travel to you or provide any supplies, they tend to charge less per hour than face-to-face private tutors. Of course, there are certain things that you won't be able to do with an online tutor such as experiments or dissections, for example, but when it comes to academic subjects like biology, you don't lose much by not having your tutor there in the room with you.
You can discuss directly with your tutor via email or phone. Their contact details are in the left-hand column of the lesson request page. You can then decide with your teacher on the preferred format of classes.
