Biology Tutoring Denver
Denver’s Best Biology Tutors
Denver Test Prep’s experienced biology tutors help students build a strong understanding of key concepts throughout the field of biology. High school biology courses cover an array of subjects and topics and are offered at different levels for students, including Advanced Placement and Honors courses. Tutors help students master various biology concepts by building upon the student’s latest level of proficiency. Students will master areas such as biochemistry, ecology, homeostasis, cytology, bioenergetics, genetics, and evolution, among others. While Denver Test Prep tutors have significant experience in helping student with a variety of middle school, high school, and college biology courses, our most commonly requested courses are general high school biology, AP Biology, and the Biology E/M SAT Subject Test.

Denver Test Prep is typically able to provide in-home biology tutoring throughout the Denver and Boulder metro areas. This includes but is not limited to the following cities and locations: Arvada, Aurora, Boulder, Broomfield, Centennial, Cherry Creek, Cherry Hills, Denver, Golden, Highlands Ranch, Littleton, Lone Tree, Louisville, Parker, Superior, and Westminster. We also regularly work with families that live in cities outside of our primary service area such as Castle Rock and Evergreen. For these students, we typically arrange for sessions at a library or another quiet location that is a short commute from home.
What concepts are covered in AP Biology?
The AP Biology course offers students an opportunity to tackle advanced biology topics during their high school career. The AP biology course is comparable to a college level introductory biology course. The course is designed to be taken only after achieving strong grades in an initial course in high school biology. Students should also have a solid understanding of high school chemistry before taking the course. Students will spend approximately 25% of the course on laboratory experiments and lab-related activities. The AP Biology exam is 3 hours long. It includes a 90-minute free-response section and a 90-minute multiple-choice section. The College Board (www.collegeboard.org) provides a detailed description of the AP Biology course, topics, and exam. A short description has been provided below of the four “big ideas” identified by the College Board for the AP Biology course. These “big ideas” form the foundation of the AP Biology course and are the primary areas where Denver Test Prep tutors will focus their attention during AP Biology tutoring programs.
Big Idea #1: The process of evolution explains the diversity and unity of life.
Big Idea #2: Biological systems utilize free energy and molecular building blocks to grow, to reproduce, and to maintain dynamic homeostasis.
Big Idea #3: Living systems store, retrieve, transmit, and respond to information essential to life processes.
Big Idea #4: Biological systems interact, and these systems and their interactions possess complex properties.
I really liked that my tutor helped me to develop my own pace, but challenged me to increase my stamina in answering questions. In a sense, my tutor helped me feel comfortable with myself when prepping, which in turn helped relieve the nervousness that I often feel when taking tests and ultimately resulted in an improved overall score.”
