A-level biology summer school 2023!

Online A-level Biology tutor

Why do A-level biology summer school? The first year of A-level Biology is a pretty big step up from GCSE. The detail piles up, but so do the answers – finally some answers! – to questions you may have had about how biology works. Year 13 builds on this. We revisit many of Year 12’s themes – DNA, diversity, how cells work – but using recent science advances to give you more of a feel for biology and life as a scientist. It’s a packed course – and it can be a little overwhelming.

Whether you’re half way through your Biology A-level, or just about to start, I can help! I’m taking bookings for tutoring sessions in July and August to give you a head-start for September.

Online A-level biology tutoring summer sessions help you to…
  • Make the transition from GCSE to A-level, including getting a head-start on A-level biology topics for September.
  • Recap your Year 12/ AS biology learning, with “troubleshooting” on any topics you find challenging.
  • Work on three skills you need for A-level biology –

Learning (approaching and remembering biological “facts”)

Understanding (feeling comfortable and confident with the processes of life)

Presenting (putting your knowledge on paper in a way that gets you the marks you deserve)

  • Work on specific aspects like “evaluate” questions, “application” questions and exam technique.
  • Boost your confidence ahead of the new term, which might help you enjoy the summer even more!

If any of this sounds useful, just get in touch for a chat and we’ll take it from there –

All the best,
