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

Biology is the study of life and how it works. Not only is it a fascinating subject, but it's a compulsory subject in English primary and secondary schools. This means that students have to study it until they finish GCSE.

In primary school, students will mainly cover biology, physics, and chemistry in a science class, but by the time they reach secondary school, they'll have individual classes dedicated to each of the main sciences on the national curriculum. After school, students can study biology at A Level and do a university degree in the subject if they're interested in a career in biology.

Let's look at why you should study biology, the challenges faced by biology students, how students are taught biology in primary and secondary school, and how private tutors can help biology students and professionals.

Why You Should Study Biology

The most obvious reason to study biology and science is that you have to. As compulsory subjects, if you want to do well at school, you have to do well in these subjects as you won't be able to drop them before you finish GCSE. Much like maths, English, physics, and chemistry, even if you're not a huge fan of biology, you'll still have to study it.

Fortunately, biology is a fascinating subject and one that teaches many transferrable skills that can be used in both science subjects like maths, physics, and chemistry, but also analytical skills that will help you in English, history, and even geography classes.

Biology also gives curious students opportunities to teach themselves through experiments and research. At school, these experiments will often be devised by the teacher, but as you advance and move onto A Level or a degree, you'll get more opportunities to devise and conduct experiments and research.

A degree in biology is also great for your career. Around three-quarters of biology students were either working or studying 15 months after graduation. There are also plenty of interesting careers out there for those with biology experience or qualifications.

Challenges in Biology

While there are plenty of good reasons to study biology, it isn't all fun and games. Much like physics and chemistry, you'll need a good understanding of maths to be good at biology and while certain fields don't rely on it too much, in others, you can't go without it.

Biology is one of those subjects where everything happens on a scale that's invisible to the naked eye. This means that you need to be able to comprehend things that you can't see and be able to understand everything from microscopic biological processes to global trends.

Studying Biology at School

As we mentioned earlier, biology is taught in English schools as part of the national curriculum either in science classes or as an independent subject. Usually, primary school students are taught about biology as part of a science class that includes physics and chemistry.

By secondary school, biology, chemistry, and physics are taught as independent subjects allowing students to gain more knowledge in each. At GCSE, however, students can either study double award science or gain three separate GCSEs.

The double award science GSCE is worth two GCSEs and still teaches students about chemistry, biology, and physics, but they'll take fewer exams than students taking each of the sciences as three separate GSCEs. Generally, any student interested in continuing their science studies beyond GCSE and onto A Level and degree should take each subject independently.

That said, it's not the end of the world if they don't and a good double award science result won't stop them from studying A Levels in biology, physics, or chemistry.

Private Biology Tutoring

Whether you're a student or a professional, anyone can benefit from private tutoring in almost any subject. After all, a private tutor will adapt the lessons to the student, ensuring that they learn what they want and how they want.

Students struggling in any of their classes can benefit from private tutoring. After all, most students just need someone to teach them in a way that works for them. Sadly, most teachers, even the best ones, don't have the time or resources to adapt their lessons to each student and have to teach in a way that works for most students, but not all.

Since private tutors work with small groups or individuals, they can take the time to focus on topics that the student struggles with and use teaching approaches that work for them.

Of course, gifted students can also benefit from private tutoring. Exceptional students may feel unchallenged and bored in their regular classes and a tutor can allow them to flex their cognitive muscle and advance beyond their classes at school or university. This is also useful if they need to get excellent exam results to apply to a competitive university.

Finding a Biology Tutor in Sheffield

If you live in or around Sheffield and are looking for private tutors in any subject, just search for them on the Superprof website. There are tutors currently offering classes in everything from biology to life coaching who'll be able to help you.

If there aren't any suitable or available tutors near you, you can always broaden your search to look for online tutors. As long as you have a webcam and a decent internet connection, you can learn from tutors all over the world. While online tutoring isn't ideal for ballroom dancing, it can be just as effective as face-to-face tutoring for academic subjects like maths, physics, chemistry, English, and biology, of course!

Don't forget that a lot of the tutors on the Superprof website offer the first lesson for free. You can use these free sessions to try out a few tutors before deciding on the one that's right for you and how you like to learn. Of course, it's a good idea to make a list of what you're looking for in a tutor rather than just contacting every single tutor out there.
