Lots of kids HATE Biology, and frankly, I don't blame them. It's the way it is taught, it's deadly. It's all memorization of some REALLY weird names of things they don't see the point of EVER knowing and just which adult thought all this up anyway?

B-O-R-I-N-G

Even better, schedule these classes around lunchtime. Instant time to go to sleep during class, it is guaranteed!

Hey, I know. I might be as old as these kids' grandmother, but I remember. But you're the parent looking for a solution to actually GETTING this child to graduate and I get that part too. It can be done. I've done it at the college level.

I'll need to talk to your child, I might need to talk to the instructor at their school (just to see what the course syllabus is and where they need for them to go and where they are and I will need your permission for that), and talk to you briefly. I will need to see as much as you can provide of the coursework already done this year so we can go over it. (If it was on the tests, it is most likely going to be on the standardized tests.) A full printed copy of the syllabus handed out on the first day of class is required.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Biology

I have a BS degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. I worked for 25 years in the clinical laboratory. All training for the laboratory is essentially the same as pre-med until the students get to the specific technical skills used in the laboratory.

English

I am certified in English--although I prefer to work with high school and younger students. Unusual in a lot of respects, I was AP in both Science and English throughout prep school and continued my studies in college. I have always been a voracious reader, excellent in grammar, and in command of a good vocabulary.

Want to place a bet on that?  Ever thought about having your own micro-brew beer?  Do you like bread? Ever spread honey on your toast? Or put blue cheese  on your salad? Or cheese on your burger?  That's right - they are ALL biology based. Every last one of them - and you can't do any of them without it. No plastic substitutes need apply. Let me show you.

You'll hear some people say that if you want to study medicine that you need to learn the Latin words that all those strange words come from. I have news for you...they aren't Latin! They're GREEK!!
