Biology is one of the three main science subjects along with physics and chemistry. Proficiency in biology is necessary for a career in many fields especially healthcare, medicines, botany, zoology, pharmacy. Initially biology is only taught as a science subject, later it is divided into different branches like botany, genetics, zoology, anatomy and others. Many students find the biology taught in Singapore schools confusing and difficult to understand so this affects their grades. Hence their parents are looking for a tutor who offers a level biology tuition
Compared to other sectors, the demand for healthcare professionals is always increasing since the population worldwide is increasing. So many students are interested in a healthcare career, working as a doctor, dentist, nurse, pharmacist or other service provider since it is easy to get a job and the salaries are also high. However, for studying in the healthcare sector, it is important to get good grades in biology at the level. Students who are not getting good grades at a levels internal exams will usually find that taking tuition will help them.
One of the reasons why students do not get good grades in biology is because of the wide range of subjects that are taught, from the cell structure of different kinds of plants, plant propagation, to human anatomy and different diseases. Often the student is not interested in the different branches of biology, tries to memorize them without understanding, and forgets the details resulting in poor grades. In other cases, the student is not using the right studying, memorization techniques to classify the different information available, so that the information is stored in his brain for easy retrieval.
It is important to carefully evaluate the biology tutor before hiring him or her. In some cases, the student requires help only in a specific branch of biology like botany or zoology. Ideally most parents will prefer to hire an experienced teacher, who has taught other students biology at the a level for at least a few years. Teachers who have earlier taught at reputed Singapore schools or are presently teaching are preferred, though their hourly tuition rates are higher. For biology a home tutor who visit the students home is preferred, since it is easier to teach offline.
The tutor will carefully evaluate the student, his proficiency in the different branches to find out which topics the student requires more help. He will also try to find out why the student is not scoring well. In some cases, the student is not interested in biology, because of the way it was taught in school. Usually it is easier to understand and remember biology if the student is interested in the different topics being taught. So using the best teaching techniques available, the teacher will try to make the student interested in the different aspects of biology. Additionally the student will also be taught methods to study, memorize better so that he can easily remember the different biology topics while answering the biology school exam.
