Intensive Prep Hybrid
NEW this year:
Our popular Intensive Prep Program, hybrid style!
The AP Biology Intensive Prep Hybrid program helps students prepare for the AP Bio exam and finals on their own schedule. The hybrid approach combines the best of both worlds, with both on-demand modules for MCQ/FRQ strategies and full problem walkthroughs, and also live office hours for 6 weeks leading up to the AP exam!
I created the hybrid version of the program because every year many students reach out wanting to join the Intensive Prep, but aren't able to because of schedule conflicts. Let's face it - as a student you're extremely busy. With the hybrid Intensive Prep, you CAN get that 4-5 on the exam while juggling all your extracurriculars and other APs!
The difference between a 3 vs. 5
on the AP Bio exam?
Many schools teach the AP Bio curriculum and the concepts themselves, but don't cover how to approach the actual exam questions. That leaves a huge gap because no matter how well you know the concepts, it's your ability to apply concepts to real problems that will make the difference between a 3 and 5 on the AP exam.
Knowing how to navigate the real exam questions and working through challenging practice problems are THE most effective ways to ensure a a score on the AP exam you'll be proud of AND do well on your finals. In this course, I'll walk you through over 10 past FRQ problems and plenty of MCQs, step by step.
While we aren't affiliated with or sponsored by College Board, all the FRQ and MCQs we walk through in class are from College Board, and that's what sets this program apart from others!

want full walkthroughs of real exam questions all in one place (so you don't need to keep searching on Google or YouTube)
are extra busy with extracurriculars and can't commit to traditional live classes
prefer the flexibility of on-demand, shorter lessons that fit better into your schedule
