Biology Tutor Session

50th session

During the session, you can participate in a variety of activities and work through practice problems and problem sets to improve. We may go over your readings and assignments together to make sure you fully understand everything. I'll give concise explanations of biological ideas and concepts to help you better comprehend. We can go into greater detail about any particular subjects or regions you'd like to concentrate on, resolving any difficulties you might have. (Now since its during the summer so our session will be more flexible, for instance I can teach on topics including chemistry, algebra, history, physics, Chinese, and Japanese.) So for any need you can reach out to me.

College-level Medical Immunology - Infection Immunity

9th session

As suggested by its name, this course is going to be about medical immunology, more specifically infection immunity. In addition to the immunology part, this series is going to dig deep into various infectious diseases. Examples might include 2019-nCoV, Ebola virus, HIV, etc. This would be a rigorous course but doesn't require prior knowledge in immunology. However, it would help if you have any. In addition to the sessions, there would also be seminars, games, practices to help you learn about expertise in this field. After all, it is also a great idea to just immerse yourself in knowledge about immunology. Come and have fun!

Biology Help Group!

9th session

In this series you can come get help for biology topics you need! This series is for HIGH SCHOOL BIOLOGY not AP or anything more advanced than that.
Questions for igcse biology topics because I used to get them a lot when I ran this series previously. I am not super familiar with the entire curriculum I actually don't understand the concept of igcse very well. However, I am able to cover questions over their biology topics a majority of the time.
When coming to this series, prepare with topics you need help with and if you need help with specific problems please bring them with you! Make sure you can take a picture and send them in the zoom chat. I have informative slides for specific topics and can use them to help you along with videos to understand certain concepts better. The session topics are completely driven by you and what you want to review.

Exploring Climate Change: Discussions on Environmental Issues

5th session

Are we getting the right picture when it comes to climate change? In today's world of catchy headlines, the full story is not often reported. In this series, we will discuss the truth and science behind environmental issues, both the good news and the bad. Each session will provide researched information to provide you with the clearest image of each issue. Topics include: - The complex picture of climate change: the causes - The multiple effects of climate change - The potential solutions and the implemented solutions - How should we talk about climate change? - Why does it seem like no one is making progress? - Prevention and Adaptation strategies - What you can do to help in your community - What is the biggest thing you can do to have the greatest impact? - Is climate change as bad as it looks? I hope you will join me in learning about what really lies beneath climate change! (Session times are subject to change)

Comprehensive AP Biology Course

15th session

Although AP biology gets a lot of bad press for being one of the most difficult APs or for the low percentage of students who score a 5 on it, you will see that with the right mindset and guidance, it can be pretty fun and not too challenging. Through this course, I hope to help those taking AP biology at school or self-studying it feel sure of themselves and do well on tests as well as te AP exam in May. - Overview - We will meet for an hour or 90 minutes (depending on how long it takes us to cover the material) every two weeks to thoroughly review the different AP Biology units. Each unit will be divided into two sessions. The exceptions are units 6 and 7. Because these two units are long and include a lot of material, I decided to divide each of them into 3 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 part of the unit assigned for that week. Then, we will do some practice questions (MCQ and FRQ) 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. - Qualifications - I self-studied for the AP Biology exam and took it in May 2022. I got a score of 5. I took the AP biology course at my school in 2023 (the year they started offering it). I also taught this same course on Schoolhouse last year. Some of the feedback I received on my course last year: "Ragad had one of the most comprehensive PowerPoint presentations on Schoolhouse that I have ever witnessed." "Lots of good details and explanation with the summary." "Your use of practice problems was awesome." "Thank you for the amazing session! I liked how you interacted with us frequently and got us involved!! :)" - Resources - I will depend on a variety of resources, but the ones I use most heavily are: (Organized from the ones I use most to the ones I use least.) - CliffsNotes AP Biology 2021 Exam (most recent edition) - Campbell, biology in focus 3rd edition - Princeton Review AP Biology Premium Prep 2022, 2023 - 5 Steps to a 5 500 Questions to Know by Test Day Looking forward to teaching all of you!

Complete AP Biology Prep Course

15th session

We will review all of the AP Biology material during our sessions. This series is primarily aimed at students who are studying AP Biology (in school or alone at home / self-studying) and are planning on taking the AP Biology exam. I prefer that you take the material at school or do some reading about it yourself before we cover it during the session as the sessions are meant as more of a review and will be somewhat fast-paced. TEACHING METHOD / FORMAT & RESOURCES Each unit will be divided into two sessions. During each session, I will start with a review of half of the unit. I will focus on the topics in the unit that the students in the class mention they find difficult and tailor the session for the students based on their feedback. Next, we will solve and discuss some practice questions during the class itself. I will constantly include both MCQ and FRQ practice questions. The resources used will generally include Campbell Biology, CliffsNotes AP Biology, Princeton Review AP Biology, and Preparing for the Biology AP Exam: To Accompany Pearson's Campbell Biology Programs. MY QUALIFICATIONS I self-studied AP Biology and scored a 5 on the 2022 AP Biology exam. I have also taken AP Biology at school the year after I did the exam because my school started offering it only then. I hosted this series last year as well, so I have good experience in tutoring students in all topics of AP Biology.
