Dear Parent -
If you're looking for a biology tutor, it's likely because your child's biology grade isn't where you want or need it to be.
I know what it's like to struggle with an advanced science. My own struggles with college chemistry forced me to turn the page on my childhood dream of becoming a doctor, but the first signs of trouble came all the way back in my high school AP biology class.
Advanced biology is a far ranging and difficult discipline. From understanding the differences between meiosis and mitosis to mastering the details of photosynthesis, the study of biology requires a student to grasp concepts that go far beyond the basic science learned in middle school.
Given the challenges, a private biology tutor can be a great investment. Working one-on-one with his or her tutor, your child will be extremely comfortable asking questions and getting clarification on important topics. In addition, a biology tutor can vary the lesson pace based upon your child's mastery of the content.
I've often wondered where my path might have led had I taken the initiative to get help all those years ago. Biology needn't be a source of frustration for your child, and with as little as 90-minutes a week an expert tutor can make all the difference.
If you want to learn more about StudyPoint biology tutoring, I encourage you to continue reading the information below on our unique personalized tutoring approach.
CEO & Co-Founder
In class the teacher needs to keep moving whether your child understands the concept or not. Your biology tutor will work at your child's pace and will review material until it's clear that he or she has mastered the concept.
Our focus is your child's schoolwork, and a key responsibility of our tutors is to help your child prepare for and succeed on important tests and quizzes. This involves reviewing homework, discussing concepts, and completing practice problems.
Our goal is to help your child earn a stronger grade in biology class, but equally important, our biology tutoring will help your child take ownership of his or her learning and become a more successful, independent biology student.
Our experienced biology tutors have degrees (and often advanced degrees) from some of the country’s best colleges and universities.
They’re experienced, passionate teachers, and they know how to engage students and break down difficult concepts.
Being smart isn't enough—our tutors are able to listen well and communicate clearly, and they adapt their approach to fit your child.
To be effective, an educational program has to work with your family's schedule. We make life easier by bringing the tutoring to you through two convenient options:
Our flagship program, which we launched in the late 1990's, our in-home tutoring option provides you with the unparalleled convenience and personalized attention of a private biology tutor who will work with your child right at your kitchen table. All lessons are one-to-one, and your instructor will ensure that each session is highly focused on your child’s unique needs.
Instead of meeting at the kitchen table your child and the tutor meet in a custom online learning environment. This innovative tool enables them to talk through strategies and complete practice problems, just as they would on a workbook at your kitchen table. Online biology tutoring replicates the in-person tutoring dynamic, and it’s remarkably effective.
Students spend 50% of their waking hours at school or doing homework and something that occupies such a large amount of time inevitably plays a big role in their happiness. School is tough —there are social, emotional, and academic challenges.
Ultimately, the end goal of a StudyPoint tutoring program is improved performance in school, and that improvement is easily measurable—an A on quiz, an outstanding test, or a report card worthy of the refrigerator door. We believe the best measure of your child’s understanding and progress is the biology grade on his or her report card, and that is how we measure our success with clients.
Yet there is an added benefit—something that is difficult to measure but easy to recognize. It is the sense of accomplishment that comes from working to improve something and seeing positive results. Few smiles are as big as the ones that accompany a strong report card.
Our greatest reward is the positive feedback we get from parents who report their children are now confident and happy in school as a result of our biology tutoring.
"We were extremely pleased - with the communication, the flexibility, and really working with us to get results in a tight time period."
"I just wanted to share the happy news with you. [Our daughter] got a 30 on her ACT. We could all not be any happier. I knew from the minute she started working with you she was going to improve. Whatever you did was magic and just what she needed."
"I can't say enough about the impressive results our son achieved in raising his ACT scores as a result of working with StudyPoint. The Program Manager and our tutor were both highly professional and genuinely interested in our son's success throughout the process."
"Our tutor was wonderful. He was very flexible in scheduling, he was calm and encouraging to our son. And, he really had great advice on the whole process. He is a credit to your organization."
