How can General Biology tutoring help you succeed?
General biology tutoring can pay remarkable dividends in your academic career. This holds true whether you are a biology major or you are simply taking general biology as an elective or distribution class. For students not focusing on the sciences, general biology may be the best chance to learn how the world around us works. Biology, after all, is the science that explains the functionality of all living things, including ourselves. Topics in general biology can address many practical issues and questions surrounding everyday life, such as the nutritional information on food packaging, why antibiotics are not warranted for the common cold, the role of agricultural runoff in making our rivers turn green, and even why poodles and Great Danes are the same species. For students focusing on the biological sciences, there may be no better investment than general biology tutoring. Not only are instructors knowledgeable in the subject matter, but they have been specially selected for their skill in explaining difficult concepts.
Too often, students will reach their advanced subject courses only to find that they have gaps in their understanding of basic concepts. General biology tutoring can help fill those gaps before they become problematic. Cell theory, basic genetics, organ systems, endocrinology, plant biology, and ecology all fall within the scope of general biology tutoring, and all these subjects will come up again and again in the academic career of a science student. The most common problem for students is the vast breadth of potential material covered in general biology. This is where private general biology tutoring comes in. Varsity Tutors can help you connect with a tutor who has a quality academic pedigree and experience sifting through the vast array of potential topics.
A tutor can help you understand your professor's impenetrable lecture notes and can connect those notes to the relevant passages in a textbook. The best benefit of investing in general biology tutoring may even simply be improved study skills. After all, tutors do more than help you learn subject matter: a quality tutor can also help you learn how to prioritize your tasks, how to winnow the chaff from the enormous quantity of material presented throughout a course, and how to organize your time effectively. Better still, your tutor can suggest ways in which you can better engage the instructors of your classes. When it comes time to ask for letters of recommendation, you will need your professor to remember you as a valuable contributor.
When classroom-based lectures are your only source of information, you might find it difficult to keep up with the pace and teaching style of your teacher. Because of this, many students become lost on important concepts and then begin to doubt themselves. If you are struggling with general biology and are on the verge of changing your degree program, or want to drop biology at the very least, consult with a private tutor before making any major decisions. Unlike classroom lecturers who must fit an entire course outline in a semester, private tutors can work at a slower pace, ensuring that you understand all of the material covered. Furthermore, with a private tutor, you don't have to waste important time by studying concepts and definitions that you already know.
Because your tutor understands that you are busy and have other study and working commitments, they are happy to meet you at a time that best suits your schedule. Along with being able to pick when you want to study, you are also in charge of choosing your study location. If you don't enjoy in-person tutoring sessions, you can request that your personal tutor meets you over the internet.
