One-On-One Biology Tutoring
Meet with a biologist/biology teacher for one-on-one tutoring for your learner
US Grade 3 - 12
Are you (or your learner) in a Biology class that is not meeting all your needs? Is it unclear, ambiguous, or just boring? Do you have questions? ("Why should I care?" counts as a question.) Let me help you - both in succeeding in your class, and in understanding why Biology is the most awesome field of science. This is a regular, weekly one-on-one session focusing on Biology. If you want more than one session a week, sign up for more than one section of this "class!" Class photo by Cátia...
This class is taught in English.
Students are expected to be taking Biology somewhere else (or here on Outschool), and this One-on-One is intended to support that. Participation in this tutorial should improve a student's performance in their Biology course.
I am certified to teach Biology in Texas, and Secondary Sciences (middle and high school) in Colorado. I am also certified as a Special Education Generalist in Colorado, and while I haven't gotten the official stamp on my certificate, I also passed the Colorado Teacher Licensing Exams in Health and Agricultural Education. I also have experience teaching AP Environmental Science and AP Biology, as well as Introductory Biology, Algebra, Biochemistry, and Chemistry for high school and undergraduate students.
Homework OfferedAs a tutorial, there is no specific homework other than what is assigned by your instructor. Occasionally, videos, articles, or other teaching aids may be shared, but viewing them is not mandatory.
Assessments OfferedThe hope is that participation in tutorials will support a student in their other Biology class.
0We may add resources as needed, but this will be discussed one-on-one.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
My background is in science and science education. Evolution, including that of humans, is accepted as fact, both in this course and by scientists in general. Human anatomy and sex education are commonly featured in Introductory Biology. In my classes, sexual reproduction is not shied away from, and I will answer questions that arise as truthfully (and age-appropriately) as possible. We also assume that climate change is real and is anthropogenic (human-caused). Oh, yeah, and the Earth is approximately 4.6 billion years old. Note: I say evolution and climate change are accepted as facts, but I am certainly happy to discuss WHY these are accepted as facts, and how we came to dismiss alternate explanations. Science is an iterative process, constantly trying to improve itself and its accuracy, and evolution is one of the most supported theories in the world of science today.
We may find online resources as necessary

Howdy do! My name is Melinda K. Dooley, and Biology is the love of my life--right up there with teaching life science to someone else! I have been tinkering with biology since I was a child, formalizing my studies as I got older, but I've...
