How much is a Biology tutor for each level of study?

As well as location, the level of study that your Biology tutor is covering can also affect the cost.

A-Level Biology will cost more than GCSE, purely due to the breadth of knowledge required for each.

Here’s how the level of study affects the cost of Biology tutors:

  • GCSE — £21.14
  • IB — £21.64
  • A-Level — £21.62

What factors affect the cost of a Biology tutor?

We’ve already mentioned how location and level of study affect the cost of Biology tutoring. Other factors include the experience of the tutor, and the certifications they hold.

A Biology tutor who has been educated to doctorate level will have more in-depth knowledge, and as a result they can justify charging more for their tutoring.

But a more important factor is how much tutoring experience they have. While tutors are primarily tasked with helping your child understand key concepts, they should also be able to inspire and instil passion for Biology in your child.

A tutor with more experience will be better able to cater to your child’s needs, making them feel more relaxed and open to learning.
