For students taking advanced placement (AP) biology, the workload can be overwhelming, and even the most ambitious students may need extra help to keep their grades up. C2 Education offers personalized AP biology tutoring to help high school students build core study skills, learn subject matter more thoroughly, and improve test scores.
According to College Board, "The key concepts and related content that define the revised AP Biology course and exam are organized around a few underlying principles called the Big Ideas, which encompass the core scientific principles, theories and processes governing living organisms and biological systems. For each of the Big Ideas, enduring understandings, which incorporate the core concepts that students should retain from the learning experience, are also identified."
The Four Big Ideas are:
1. The process of evolution drives the diversity and unity of life
2. Biological systems utilize free energy and molecular building blocks to grow, to reproduce and to maintain dynamic homeostasis
3. Living systems store, retrieve, transmit and respond to information essential to life processes
4. Biological systems interact, and these systems and their interactions possess complex properties
The AP biology exam is designed to test students' ability to:
The tutors at C2 Education help AP biology students improve all of the above skills to ensure they make a good grade in the class and score highly on the AP biology exam.
The following video can provide some other useful insights into what students should expect to get out of their Advanced Placement classes.
Any AP biology student can benefit from tutoring because simply taking the course is not enough to impress college admissions officers. Doing well in the class is what is more important and displays that a student is motivated and driven. So why not take AP biology and get the tutoring to succeed in it?
Additionally, science, math, and technology careers continue to dominate the U.S. job market, and it can only benefit a student to have a deep understanding of that material.
An article published by U.S. News states, "The skills derived from a STEM [science, technology, engineering and mathematics] education are the mission-critical elements of the jobs of tomorrow, for they are directly linked to economic productivity and competitive products."
Besides learning enhanced study and test-taking skills, C2 Education students will learn the fundamental skills necessary for continued success — in their AP biology class and beyond. In fact, 90% of C2 Education students see grade improvements within three months of enrolling, 85% are accepted at top 50 colleges and universities, and 100% pass state standardized tests.
At C2 Education, we don't just tutor students in a specific subject, we provide educational support and academic enrichment services to help prepare students for college. So, whether a student needs AP biology tutoring, SAT prep help, college application essay help, or all three, C2 Education is there every step of the way.
