Biology is a fascinating subject exploring all aspects of life. From tiny cells to whole ecosystems, from the bottom of the deepest oceans to the top of the highest mountains… What can be better than learning about and appreciating the life that is around you and, as far as we know, nowhere else in the universe!
Our live tutorials are a great way to learn:
- Small groups (capped at 10 students) meaning a lovely atmosphere and great rapport
- Student cameras and microphones are enabled so students can engage directly with the tutor and each other (encouraged but optional)
- Professionally qualified tutors with years of experience in schools and within Home Education
- FREE Certificate of Attendance with all topic tickets
This topic is part of a two-year Key Stage 3 programme of study (there are six lower and six upper topics in each of Biology, Chemistry and Physics). Our interactive tutorials have been specially written to follow the National Curriculum, ensuring students are adequately prepared for further Key Stage 4 (GCSE) study.
- Students are able to join the programme at any time (subject to availability), they do not have to start in Term 1
- There are no long-term contracts and no joining fees
- Your child can join a topic that has already started (subject to availability) – just get in touch
- You can request a free trial to sample the teaching style and small-group atmosphere
Please note we do not make recordings of tutorials available. We focus on delivering the very best live, interactive lessons we can and we find recordings can dampen students’ willingness to participate.
