Students' (and parents’!) Online Biology Tutoring FAQs

Why study biology?

The word Biology is derived from two Greek words; ‘bio,’ which means life, and ‘logos,’ which means study. So, Biology is literally the study of life itself and is the foundation on which many other disciplines are built—such as medicine, anatomy, zoology, botany, and microbiology.

A perfect example of how biology has helped the world in current times as well as in the past is understanding diseases and the formulation of vaccines. Examples include the yellow fever vaccine, the polio vaccine, and more recently, the covid-19 vaccine. Biology has helped the world immensely and studying it is truly important as it allows us to keep discovering the mysteries of the human body and life itself.  

How can biology help inform everyday decisions?

Is it a sunny day or a chilly winter morning? Biology protects you by providing you with breathable clothes from plants, or thicker materials like wool and leather obtained from animals. Everyday reflex actions including sneezing, blinking and breathing are all examples of involuntary actions that happen because of human biology.

Biology is in everything we do daily, from deciding whether or not to eat a particular meal because of an allergic reaction, to the gas used in cars. Ethanol fuel extracted from plants is used with the intent of reducing the damage we are doing to our planet. Biology is all around us; and impacts most of our decisions each day. The work of professional biologists has a great deal of impact in the world at large.

What careers can studying biology lead to?

Studying Biology at secondary school or undergraduate level can open up a very wide range of possible career options. Some of which include:

Doctor, Veterinarian, Pharmacist, Biochemist, Infectious Disease Researcher, Epidemiologist, Biostatistician, Genetics Consultant, Marine Biologist, Microbiologist, Medical Researcher, Nurse, Environmentalist, Lab Technician, University Professor or Secondary School Teacher - you may even become one of Spires online Biology tutors!

How does biology help with Medicine?

Biology is a fundamental requirement for any degree program in the health sciences and is a key component of general and specialised curriculums in medicine. It is also an essential background for understanding human health, health care, clinical trials, disease prevention, epidemiology, and treatment therapy.

The requirements for entry to medical courses vary depending on the country in which you are taking your undergraduate degree as well as any specific course requirements of that university. Most UK universities require applicants to have obtained at least a pass in the A level biology or equivalent qualification before they can proceed with their course application. Medicine courses may have different levels of entry requirements too so be sure to check these out when applying for a UK degree. 

Entry requirements into medical school in North America are also usually quite rigorous and often include at least three units of biology taken in high school (i.e., AP Biology, Biochemistry, Microbiology) and four years of related college study. There are also a number of other specific requirements, depending on the institution and exact field of study. 

How expert biology tutoring can help you.

Teachers will take the time to assess your starting point then develop a personalised syllabus to work towards your objectives. Classes will focus on your areas of weakness and on developing the confidence you need to achieve your goals. Lessons will also push students in areas that they are already comfortable with, encouraging constant improvement and developing positive learning habits.

Why choose Spires’ biology Tutoring?

We only hire 4% of the biology tutors that apply to Spires and they are all professional and experienced school and university level educators. Many have qualifications from top universities and institutions in the UK, USA and around the world. All have a PhD, MSc, Ma, BSc, or Ba in their chosen field.

It’s that easy!

Do I need a biology tutor near me?

How do I choose from all your biology tutors?

How many private teachers are available to give private biology courses?

We currently have over 100 biology tutors with academic and professional experience specialising in a wide range of topics from GCSE to postgraduate support, and everything in between.

What qualifications do Spires tutors need?

All of our tutors must hold at least a Bachelor’s degree and have tutoring experience. Most of our tutors have higher degrees on top of that in specialised areas such as Master’s degrees or PhDs. All of our tutors are DBS checked or have had equivalent background checks.

What is my tutor's role?

It is our tutors’ responsibility to guide you to understand a subject you have chosen. Using their expertise in the chosen topic they will help you to understand, analyze and use the content of the lessons to apply at a later date, whether it is at your chosen university, your career, or in your day-to-day life.

What are the qualities of a good tutor?

A good tutor knows that biology is more than just teaching theory; it is all about applying what has been taught. A good tutor is experienced and with the required qualifications and possesses excellent communication skills.

An excellent tutor is patient and challenges the student by bringing tasking challenges to the class. A good tutor could be the difference between your liking a subject and succeeding with it, or not performing so well due to a lack of interest. 

How much does a private biology tutor cost per hour?

Tuition is priced according to level:

1. School: For Primary school, Secondary and Higher Education prices start at €25/hr

2. University: For Undergraduate and Postgraduate tutoring, prices start at €35/hr

3. Professional: For Chartered Qualifications and Admissions Test tutoring, prices start at €45/hr.

The average tutor price ranges based on the tutors’ experience and expertise and the level of the student.

How much is a biology tutor per hour in London?

The average tutor price is £40/$53/€45 per hour depending on a teachers’ experience and level of students. This is higher than other areas in the UK due to the higher living costs that come with living in London.

What happens when I contact one of your biology tutors?

Once you’ve used the Find Tutors feature to find biology tutors for your level, you can contact them with any questions you might have. Normally your tutor will respond with availability within 24 hours. We will recommend other tutors who may be able to meet your needs if your chosen tutor isn't able to.
