Course Description

Our Online Biology Tutoring programmes are very flexible. Each tutoring programme is based on a package of five hours of Tutor lessons delivered on the online whiteboard, and can last up to a maximum of TWO months. All our E.T.A. Online Tutoring courses are especially designed for individual student learning, and are delivered from their own tutorial course page on the E.T.A. website. Each Online Tutoring course has a dedicated tutor who co-ordinates and guides the student throughout the duration of the programme.

Pre-university Biology courses are broad and they encourage students to investigate the living world at all levels – from a molecular cellular reaction to a dangerous mammal resting on the shadow of a tall tree. Biology is not only essential to understand environmental interactions but also gives you the knowledge of what is happening with you – to the extent of cellular level. Studying biology will make you become more aware of your surroundings, question what you know and most importantly it will shape your scientific approaches. You’ll be able to design your own investigations, collect data, develop theories, analyse results and also evaluate yours and other’s data as a way of share your views.

Types of E.T.A. Tutorial Courses

There are FOUR  types of Tutorial Courses offered, dependent on the type of qualification across the academic year.


Offered around commencement of your course to give you a “headstart” in your first term or semester. A Headstart Tutorial Course will of course cover the subject basics; but also and more importantly, prime you for the subsequent more in-depth concepts and competencies. To enable you to make that transition, our Headstart Courses place a focus on empowering you with techniques to embed what you have already learnt, understand better your own natural learning style and to be self-critical. Thus fostering the confidence in you to develop new positive learning habits.


Offered around the Spring term (or between Semesters), the “booster” courses are designed to give you a mid-course stimulus. It is often at this point in a course that many students start to feel a bit overwhelmed with their academic workload. Our Booster Courses will offer you an opportunity to experience a new, stimulating and supportive environment. So that you will be able to work intensively on a highly-focused set of activities which will offer you a fresh perspective to re-engage with your subject and re-organize your conceptual frameworks to anchor new learning.


Offered around a month before you commence on your end-of-year or final external examinations. At this critical point in your studies, our “revision” courses are designed to consolidate your learning to date, check on the effectiveness of your learning strategies, and of course to assist you with subject specific examination preparation and techniques. Each Revision Course will use a bank of past and specimen papers, together  with our own question and tasks databank and calculator technique exercises (as appropriate).


Offered throughout the year for gap year or retake students, the“refresher” courses are designed to enable retake or gap year students to efficiently re-engage with their subject. Each student registered on a Refresher Course will undergo a diagnostic assessment to determine their strengths and weaknesses: be it gaps in subject knowledge, uncertainty in applying techniques or developing arguments or proofs, or an under-developed examination technique.
