    We had a very positive experience with Alissa as a tutor for our pod of 5th grade boys from January - June 2020. She cared a lot about the boys and worked hard to create meaningful activities for them. The pod experience was invaluable … More for all of our families during a difficult year and we were so grateful to have found this partnership! We also want to appreciate Craig for helping to match us with a tutor on very short notice after we had cycled through a few folks who were not able to see the commitment through. Thanks for sticking with us!

He is flexible, responsive to our needs/schedule as … More a family, and a delight to be with. We are also thankful that Craig at Themba Tutors really "gets it" and partnered us with such a wonderful tutor who was a great fit for our girl.
  • Biology Science Tutors, Themba Tutors Nicole May ★★★★★ 7 months ago
    My child worked with Gillian D virtually for math enrichment. She is an excellent teacher. She took time to understand my child's specific learning style and provided tools that would be engaging. She was kind and empathetic- really … More made it her goal to connect with my child and build trust and rapport. My child started the school year with confidence and without the typically "brain-drain" that occurs over the summer, thanks to Gillian.

    Our son started in a new high school, 100% remote, and was really struggling with Latin and Physics. I found Themba Tudors online and had an initial call with Craig, who was very knowledgeable, responsive, and found 2 amazing tutors for … More us. Both the Latin and the physics tutors were fantastic, connected with my son really well and helped him go from 'failing' grade to 'honors'! I will for sure continue using (and recommending!) Themba Tutors. Thank you, C, K, and W!

  • Biology Science Tutors, Themba Tutors Christine Gennetti ★★★★★ a year ago
    As an adult student diagnosed with a learning disability during grad school, I knew I needed help dealing with my Master's program's demanding workload. I was seriously considering dropping out when I was referred to Themba Tutors. … More I was paired up with a wonderful tutor, Julie, who was a total lifesaver. I learned many techniques that I can utilize in the future as I embark on the next phase of my career.
    I can wholeheartedly say after working with Themba for two years that I would not have finished my program without this organization. And I am so thankful I selected them.

    We were introduced to a wonderful tutor: Mcedwyn. He and our son, a freshman in college, worked well together. As a result, our son’s grades significantly improved. The tutor taught our son subject content and various methods to effectively … More study for quizzes and exams. Our son was also taught time management and organization. My son’s experience with the tutor made the first year of college a less intimidating experience.
  • Biology Science Tutors, Themba Tutors Jude Eugene ★★★★★ a year ago
    We have been with our tutor, Cailin Schiller, for two years, from 5th - 7th grade. She started as an executive functioning tutor with my daughter. From the start, she demonstrated a depth of expertise and a selective use of techniques skillfully … More adapted to my daughter’s ADHD and Math disability. Cailin made Math accessible and understandable to her in a way that even her teachers had not been able to do. She differentiated reading, writing and math tasks and assignments to tailor them to my daughter’s unique learning differences. Not only did it have an effect on her grades and her work efficiency, but she finally could do her work with less anxiety. Even my daughter’s teachers used Cailin’s guidance to modify their work with her. But most importantly, she became my daughter’s favorite resource. I can’t say how invaluable Cailin has been to my daughter’s progress and well-being. I’d recommend her a million times over. She is a gem.

    Themba Tutors provided a leaning specialist that was a perfect fit for my daughter. I told them what we were looking for and they delivered.

    Paul Smith at Themba has been an exceptional tutor for my son, both in terms of teaching the subject matter and teaching how best to approach the process of learning math and executing assignments. We feel very fortunate to be working with … More Paul.
  • Biology Science Tutors, Themba Tutors Monica Alzate ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    We were very lucky to have found Edwouine Swift, my son's therapist through Themba Tutors. Thomas is 12 years old, and it is extremely difficult to get him to write. Edwouine just works her magic with him, he adores her and is so … More eager to follow her guidance. I have no doubt she will be a positive driving force in his academic future.

What Is Biology?

What Is Biology?

 

From the Greek words bios (life) and logos (life), biology can be simply defined as the study or science of life, and essentially, the study of everything. It is a branch of science that studies and explores living organisms and their vital processes and interactions. There are various fields of study that fall under biology, each focusing on the different forms of life that make up our planet. These include botany, ecology, marine biology, medicine, physiology, zoology, and microbiology.

 

Biologists study:

 

  • Structure
  • Function
  • Growth
  • Origin
  • Evolution
  • Distribution of living organisms

Biology Science Tutors, Themba Tutors

Biology is generally divided into nine major fields of study, each consisting of their own multiple sub-disciplines. These umbrella fields are:

 

 

Biochemistry

A lab-based science, biochemistry studies the biological and chemical processes of living organisms at the cellular and molecular level. It can be divided into structural biology, enzymology,

 

Botany

Also referred to as plant science, plant biology, or phytology, botany is the study of plants. It includes plant physiology, structure, genetics, ecology, distribution, classification, and economic significance.

 

Cellular biology

Cell biology or cellular biology is the study of the structure and function of a cell, the basic membrane-bound unit that makes up all living things and contains the fundamental molecules of life. Cellular biologists study how cells form, divide, differentiate, and specialize.

 

Ecology

Ecology is the study of organisms, their environment, and their relationship and interactions. This includes life processes, adaptations and habitats, ecosystems, population, and biodiversity.

 

Evolutionary biology

This subfield of biology is the study of evolutionary processes of living organisms over time that resulted in the diversity of life on Earth. It takes an in-depth look at the origin and descent of species and the changes they undergo over time. Evolutionary biology encompasses genetics, ecology, taxonomy, paleontology, and ethology.

 

Genetics

Genetics is the study of heredity, genes, and genetic variations. It is considered one of biology’s central pillars and encompasses other fields, including medicine, biotechnology, and agriculture.

 

Molecular biology

The study of the structure and functions of macromolecules that are essential to life is referred to as molecular biology. This includes molecular synthesis, modification, interactions, and mechanisms such as gene replication, mutation, and expression.

 

Physiology

Physiology is a branch of biology that studies and explores the normal functions and mechanisms of living organisms and their parts. It observes the chemical and physical functions of organisms, individual organs and organ systems, cells, and biomolecules in a living system.

 

Zoology

Zoology is the study of the animal kingdom, specifically animal life, behavior, and interaction with their habitats and ecosystems. It includes the evolution, habits, classification, and embryology, among other things, of both living and extinct animals.

 

Biotechnology

Biotechnology is a branch of science that aims to harness biological (cellular and biomolecular) processes for medical, industrial, economic, and other purposes. The goal of biotechnology is to develop products and technologies that enhance and improve human life.

 

Synthetic biology is a new multidisciplinary area of study and research that involves redesigning organisms that already exist in the natural world and fabricating new biological components and systems. Synthetic biologists and researchers engineer organisms and biological parts and systems to create new uses and advancements in manufacturing, medicine, agriculture, to name a few.

 

Framework of Understanding

All the branches of biology are often unified within a framework of 5 basic understandings about living things. Studying the small print of those five ideas provides the endless fascination of biological research:

 

  • Cell Theory. There are three parts to cell theory — the cell is the basic unit of life, all living things are composed of cells, and all cells arise from pre-existing cells.
  • Energy. All living things require energy, and energy flows between organisms and between organisms and, therefore, the environment.
  • Heredity. All living things have DNA, and genetic information codes the structure and function of all cells.
  • Equilibrium. All living things must maintain homeostasis, a state of balanced equilibrium between the organism and its environment.
  • Evolution. This is often the general unifying concept of biology. Evolution is that the change over time that’s the engine of biological diversity.

Biology and Other Sciences

 

Biology is usually studied in conjunction with other sciences, like mathematics and engineering, and even social sciences. Here are a few examples:

 

  • Biophysics involves matching patterns in life and analyzing them with physics and arithmetic
  • Astrobiology is that the study of the evolution of life within the universe, including the look for extraterrestrial life
  • Biogeography is the study of the distribution and evolution of life forms and the causes of the distribution
  • Biomathematics involves creating mathematical models to raised understand patterns and phenomena within the biology world
  • Bioengineering is the application of engineering principles to biology principles and vice versa
  • Sociologists often study how biology can shape social interactions structures and cultures

The History of Biology

 

Although we cannot pinpoint a time in history that tells us exactly when or where the study of life originated, we know from historical and archaeological evidence that early humans had some form of understanding of plant and animal life in their surroundings. Their survival depended on identifying edible and poisonous plants and fruits, familiarizing themselves with the habits of animals they hunt for food, and staying away dangerous predators. These records show us that even before humans built civilizations and learned how to read and write, they already practiced biology.

 

 

Why Is Biology Important?

 

As the study of life, biology has helped humans understand and shape the world we live in. It allows us to get a clearer understanding of how all living organisms evolve, function, interact, and survive. Aside from teaching us the basic concepts of living, biology has brought significant improvements in our quality of life with its contributions in medicine, biotechnology, agriculture, and genetics, among other things. Most of all, biology allows us to answer the most fundamental questions about life and opens the door for scientific investigation and innovation.

 

 

Where Do Biology Graduates Work?

 

Students who choose to major in biology can look forward to a wide range of available careers in different fields. Biology graduates may find themselves working in medicine and healthcare, agriculture, education, forensic science, policymaking, environmental conservation, and biotechnology, and many others.
