High school Biology can be overwhelming to many students. The extent of the subject matter can be vast, and students have yet to see many of these topics before. Biology covers qualitative and quantitative observation, cell functions, perpetuation of species, genetics and chromosomal inheritance, DNA and RNA functions, taxonomy, organism classification, and more. Our instructor, Regina Campbell-Malone, earned her PhD from MIT and is an experienced high school Biology teacher. She knows first-hand which subjects can be stumbling blocks, and she’ll spend a week preparing our students to succeed.

This one-week summer program is designed for teens interested in receiving tutoring as preparations for fall courses.

Student Comments

“Teacher was great! Great overall course.”

“I had a great teacher who taught concepts in a fun and exciting way.”

“I liked that we did labs and hands-on activities. They were fun and helped me learn. I liked that our teacher showed us how to use micropipettes because I struggled with them in my biology class this year.”

“This program allowed me to get a better understanding of some important concepts as well as get a preview of the high school biology content. The teacher organized interesting labs for us to try and get new experiences.” 

“The topics discussed in the program were easily understandable and clearly taught and the interactive games and labs really helped me make difficult concepts easier to learn. Multiple hands-on and outdoor activities. Engaging and helpful teacher.”
