Series Details


We will meet for an hour every two weeks to go over the most important points in the different AP Biology units. Each unit will be divided into two sessions. The sessions will start with a quick review of and/or a question about some of the topics discussed in the previous session(s) followed by a discussion of the concepts and topics in the particular unit assigned for that week. Then, we will do some practice questions and a Q&A (questions are also welcome anytime during the session). Advice on how to approach test questions and tips for studying for the AP biology test will be incorporated throughout our sessions. Qualification: I self-studied for the AP Biology exam and took it in May 2022. I got a score of 5. I currently take the AP biology course at my school (which it only started to offer this year). Resources I use: I will depend on a variety of resources, but the ones I will use most heavily will probably be: - Campbell, biology in focus 3rd edition - Princeton Review AP Biology Premium Prep 2022 ( I use the older version for practice questions so that students who plan to use the Princeton Review 2023 book to review in April would not have been exposed to the questions before). - 5 Steps to a 5 500 Questions to Know by Test Day I have not added all sessions yet. I will add all sessions in the next week or two!


For the greatest benefit, students are highly encouraged, but not required, to attend all sessions. You are welcome to join at any point during our course.

About the Tutor

I am a senior who values education and enjoys learning and teaching! I am Jordanian, but I attend an International School in Saudi Arabia. My favorite subject at school is biology though chemistry and math are close seconds. I had a GPA of 4.0 in my junior year including an A+ in Math, which included Algebra II and Calculus. I ranked first in my junior year (my school had about 200 junior students). I have taken the ACT test twice and scored a 34 in the first trial and a 35 in the second. I have a super score of 36! I also self-studied AP Biology in 2022 and scored a 5 on the AP Biology test. However, when my school started a 2-year AP Biology program last year, I joined it because of my love for biology (and it was the most challenging biology course being offered at my school). In 2023, I took an AP Chemistry course offered by Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth because my school does not offer AP Chemistry. I received an A in the course and a 5 on the AP test! I have also taken an "Introduction to Epidemiology" course offered by UC San Diego in which I received an A+. I also worked on a research project with the International Research Institute of North Carolina. As to English proficiency, in addition to attending international schools since kindergarten, I have scored 119/120 on the TOEFL test in 2023. I have been tutoring at Schoolhouse for over a year now and have enjoyed tutoring and learned greatly from my experience. I hope to continue sharing my knowledge and helping others during my senior year.
