General Biology Tutoring FAQ

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.

Recent General Biology Tutoring Session Notes

Online General Biology Tutoring review by Ria
This session was mostly a review of the worksheet given by his teacher for the test. The student has really absorbed the material I've been teaching him and is much better at reading the problem carefully and knowing when to use what genotypes/phenotypes as are necessary to the problem. He was very comfortable doing almost all of the worksheet. The only thing I suggested he study more was the difference between incomplete dominance and co-dominance. In relation I suggest to study how it affects resultant phenotypes, as it's easily confused between the two. If he can study and clear up that part, he should be in great shape for his test.

Online General Biology Tutoring review by MacKenzie
Today the student and I reviewed the female reproductive cycle (with emphasis on the hormones involved), gametogenesis, and action potentials in nerve cells. We went over how she studied for the test she took two weeks ago, and she said she felt a lot better about how she has been studying.

Online General Biology Tutoring review by Carolyn
In our session, we worked primarily on DNA. The student and I went over the history of DNA - the discoveries that lead up to our current knowledge of DNA structure and function. He completed several worksheets on both this historical knowledge and DNA structural knowledge. He seemed to understand this material very well, and didn't have trouble with the worksheets at all. I then checked over some geometry problems he had previously completed.

Online General Biology Tutoring review by Lauren
The student and I studied for her biology quiz tomorrow on the digestive system. We reviewed the presentation and accompanying videos. We also took three short quizzes online. She did a great job and was comfortable with the information. Afterward, we reviewed her book for English. Since information retention seemed to be a difficulty, we began a project that will summarize each chapter, identify character development and assist her in making predictions for the following chapter(s). I think it will really help her remember what she reads. She did a very good job!

We reviewed and outlined the section in her book on the digestive system. We reviewed her notes and went through each organ of the digestive system and it's functions, and important enzymes and location. At the end of the session I asked questions and the student was able to answer all the questions. We also discussed how to study for her test.

Online General Biology Tutoring review by Rose
The student and I reviewed the material for his biology quiz. We went through his lecture notes, and the student filled in the blanks as we went. First, I explained the notes and covered the topics of the discovery of DNA as the genetic material, the composition of DNA, DNA replication, and the proteins involved in replication. Then, I asked the student questions about the material and we further reviewed topics he did not understand. Lastly, I defined key terms and drew diagrams detailing DNA replication.
