Introductory Biology

What you’ll learn

Understand more about the natural world around you, gain an appreciation for the complexities of life and score higher on exams!

Introductory Biology


A device for watching videos and the ability to download .pdf documents is all that’s needed! (I should add, a hunger for learning and open-mindedness is also recommended!)


This course will provide students with a basic understanding of an introductory level biology experience.  It will contain video lectures and fill-in lecture notes, as well as end of section quizzes.  It is up to you how you would like to experience this course, fast-paced for upcoming test prep or more slow-paced for learners that want to take their time.                   The course will cover most major aspects of a biology experience in high school or introductory college course. However, It can be useful to students (at any level) looking for additional help or prep in biology topics.      I have 19+ years of experience teaching biology and chemistry at both the high school and collegiate level.  The course will be taught with an appreciation for life’s processes and applications to the real world will be integrated into lectures.
