“There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.”

Charles Darwin, 1859


Biology is the result of the laws of Chemistry and Physics working together in a very sophisticated manner. In order for an organism to exist and replicate, it must overcome the harsh challenges of the natural world. Biology is the study of the strategies and structures that organisms develop in order to overcome these challenges, and the mechanism that governs this process. Biology could, therefore, be considered a form of highly complex ‘organic problem-solving’.


From the structure of a 2.5 nanometre-wide DNA molecule, to a beating heart, to a 200-tonne Blue Whale, to the ecosystem of the Amazon rainforest, there is great breadth to the scope of Biology.

Consequently, Biology is a content-heavy, academically stretching subject.


At Athena Tuition, our enthusiastic Biology tutors have true ownership of the subject content. They are able to offer precise, syllabus-targeted teaching, whilst also having the headroom to provide extension detail, where necessary, in order to give context and aid understanding.


We accommodate all exam boards and can scale levels from prep-school Biology up to Oxbridge interview extension work and beyond.
