Biotechnology Tutoring FAQ
By studying the various ways in which particular genes can be inserted into an organism's existing genetic code, scientists have discovered how to use these organisms for the benefit of society. As the field devoted to this practice and its potential results, biotechnology is a complex discipline on the forefront of current scientific research, and presents a wide variety of potential real-world applications. For instance, did you know that transgenic E. Coli are used to create insulin to help people who are diabetic maintain their blood sugar levels? With the great amount of potential this field holds, its no wonder that numerous undergraduate and graduate curricula offer courses completely dedicated to biotechnology, and that biotechnology units often feature in genetics classes as well.
As you might be able to infer, the field of biotechnology is a complex one. To succeed, you need both a solid foundation in traditional genetics concepts, as well as the ability to approach challenges with creative problem-solving skills. There is also a large amount of specific vocabulary and jargon to deal with. Further, biotechnology demands the consideration of scientific ethics in ways that other scientific subjects, such as physics and chemistry, do not. Varsity Tutors can help you connect with biotechnology tutoring across the country that can help you work through the material you need to learn in an organized and efficient way.
No matter what aspects of biotechnology you find difficult, a private tutor can help. Biotechnology instructors are experienced in the field, and many of them have advanced biology degrees and work in research labs or industries directly related to the field. They've achieved success in their own biotechnology coursework, and combine their subject knowledge with superb teaching skills. Not only do they understand biotechnology, they can help you understand it as well. Whether you are taking the early courses associated with the subject, such as biotechnology and society, introduction to cell and molecular biology, or genomic and cDNA library construction and analysis, or you have begun to work with the harder subjects, like data analysis using SAS, immunology, advanced SAS programming, and bioreactor cell culture techniques, you can get assistance from a professional, experienced tutor.

Recent Biotechnology Tutoring Session Notes
In this session, we worked to prepare the student on morphogenesis and stem cells. For plants, we went over the contents of a seed, the anatomy of a sprout, and the apical meristem (how it correlated to animal stem cells). She struggled most with the plant content as it was mostly memorization of terms, but it went well. We created study note cards from her test objectives list, and I instructed her to use those to study. I had no concerns about this session.
We went through genetics. He had an exam the next day so I went through it with him. I had some questions prepared so I had him complete those while I created different pedigrees for him to work on. I went through the 4 types of pedigrees with him and had him label the genotypes on each. We also went through some of the diseases he was told to memorize. We also were able to get in some geometry. I tested him by just complicating the problems and showing him little tricks to solve them. Also taught him The Rule of Sine.
Extremely intelligent student and picks up information quickly.
- Darwin's Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection.
- Darwin's evidence for evolution.
- Cladistics and Taxonomy.
- Fossil and molecular evidence for Evolution.
- The difference between punctuated equilibrium and descent with modification.
We went over the student's quiz from last week to analyze errors and any patterns. For this week's quiz I went over three general test taking strategies to implement this week and to help him feel more confident. I also asked him to make 6 more flashcards in the method we had discussed last week.
The student and I didn't get a chance to meet the week before so we had more to work on. We studied some Biology topics primarily covering evolution and natural selection. Afterwards, we studied geometry covering special right triangles such as the 3-4-5 triangle. He felt confused about some topics but I cleared up the fact that he simply has to memorize the triangles.
I used my lectures to cover the topics of meiosis, mitosis, and genetics, which was more comprehensive than the material the student had available. We finished his extra credit, and I quizzed him using the exams I have used in the past for my classes. He seems to know the material, he just needs to study his worksheets.
For our initial meeting, we discussed some of the trouble she has been having with her biology course. We tackled the topics of DNA, replication, transcription, and translation. I used some educational videos to illustrate each of these processes, so she had a greater concept of leading and lagging strand synthesis for replication.
