AP Biology Overview
If your student in enrolled in AP Biology, you might be interested in finding out more information about tutoring. Look no further than our excellent tutors to give your student the leg up they need on the course material. AP Biology is one of the courses within the Advanced Placement program. This program allows high school students to take courses at a college level, giving them the opportunity to earn college credit if they score high enough on the end of year final exam.

This program allows high school students to take courses at a college level, giving them the opportunity to earn college credit if they score high enough on the end of year final exam. You can usually check with your student’s prospective school to see what score level they need for your student to earn college credit, but the goal of all students should be to do well on that final exam, regardless of whether they need a 3 or a 5, as the course grades on a 1 to 5 scale.
Why Work With An AP Biology Tutor?
An AP Biology tutor can be the difference between a passing grade that earns your student college credit and saves them money when at college and a failing grade. You can hire a tutor to work with your student throughout the year, mastering concepts on their own time, or you can schedule a tutor to work with your student during the final few weeks before the final exam, making sure that they are prepared for the test.
Our AP Biology tutors are qualified to tutor students on every topic within the AP Biology syllabus. Major topics covered in the course include studying how evolution is response for life’s diversity, while also covering how molecular building blocks allow biological systems to form and function. Your student will learn how free energy is harnessed to maintain homeostasis, grow, and even reproduce. Your student’s coursework will cover these subjects and more in great detail, such as learning about each of the cell’s organelles are and how they function. They will also cover topics such as cellular respiration and photosynthesis.
Memorization is important for many facts in AP Biology, but your student also needs to understand how to apply this material to solve problems and understand how different systems work. As part of their coursework, students will design experiments to test a hypothesis and learns ways in which to collect valuable data. An AP Biology tutor can help your student learn the material and figure out how to apply it to design and solve problems. A tutor can even work with your student on their writing skills to ensure they are able to communicate effectively and write out experimental findings.
Working with an AP Biology tutor allows your student to receive the individualized attention that many of them need to learn the material. Using our one-on-one learning environment, your student’s tutor is able to take time to learn about how your student learns most effectively. They can take that information and design their review sessions around your student’s learning style. If a study learns better by listening, the study sessions can have a lecture slant, while visual learners may need images or graphs to help illustrate a specific topic.
Your student’s instructor will discuss when they how they learn best to prepare them for their school work and their final exam. One of the other benefits of working with an AP Biology tutor is that your tutor can move at a pass that works for your student. Rather than rushing through material to keep up with the curriculum, the tutoring sessions can be taught at a pace that works for your student to cover the material. For example, when studying DNA and RNA, if your student has already mastered the concept of replication, their tutor can focus on other material, such as how DNA and RNA store genetic material.
With your student’s tutoring sessions, they are the only student present, which means that all of the instructor’s attention is on then. Any questions your student has can be answered immediately, rather than waiting until the end of the material, and they don’t have to compete to get answers and attention. Your student will also get prompt feedback when answering questions, so they never have to wonder if their understanding is correct — they’ll know.
