"Natasha helped our son on weekly online sessions with Biology, Physics and Chemistry GCSE syllabus. Having come from overseas he felt he needed some support and consolidation in these subjects and Natasha was able to do that with her amazing knowledge across the three sciences. She is kind and positive, and established a great rapport with our son, really helping him and boosting his confidence which in turn, enabled him to gain A* in all three subjects at GCSE. We love Natasha! "Mother of GCSE Science student
"Thanks to my tutor Kate, I discovered a passion for biology that I previously was not aware of. We often say that students learn better and get better grades when they like the teacher. Kate is the proof that this is true. Unfortunately, this year due to school closures we have not been able to prove our abilities during the end of year exams but I am sure that I would have performed really well thanks to Kate’s tutoring"IB Biology Student

We can provide Biology tuition tailored to specific exams, including GCSE Biology, IGCSE Biology, IB Biology, A Level Biology, and Cambridge NSAA Tests and other University Entrance exams. We help to improve exam performance by making use of past Biology papers, reinforcing core learning, developing revision techniques, and helping students to push the boundaries of their knowledge of Biology to differentiate themselves from fellow students.
GCSE Biology students will need a solid grounding in topics like cell Biology, inheritance, variation & evolution, and ecology. Our Biology tutors will help your child develop a fluent knowledge of the appropriate methods and concepts, and maximise their ability to pick and use the correct tools and techniques to answer Biology questions across a range of different contexts. We aim to build up your child’s confidence, speed, and accuracy in Biology, equipping them to excel at GCSE level.

Our IGCSE Biology tutors can help your child across all areas of the IGCSE Biology curriculum, including core areas such as characteristics and classification of living organisms; movement in and out of cells; plant nutrition and human nutrition. The IGCSE provides an excellent foundation for further study in Biology, and the tutors we represent will help your child take full advantage of this, reinforcing the key concepts and preparing them to perform well under examination conditions.
