Biology – Manchester.

Biology Revision Courses

Highly detailed and engaging courses, focusing on the AQA specification.   

Our courses are targeted at students in their second year of A level teaching who will be sitting the A-level examination in the summer of 2019.   

Our Biology tutors are highly experienced teachers and examiners with outstanding classroom practice.  The courses are both stimulating and challenging for all students and the small class size allows tutors to provide individualised support.

Prior to the course students have the opportunity to inform the tutor of the specific areas they feel they need to focus on and this will dictate the direction of the course.
