 My regular tutorials are on Wednesday mornings and Thursday afternoons.  

Please check ahead of time, as my schedule is subject to change.

Tutorials schedules for all biology teachers are posted outside of each lab. Students are welcome to attend the tutorial session of any Biology teacher.

Please come to tutorials prepared with questions.  

Class Assignments & Homework


All students are given a calendar of assignments and assessments at the beginning of each unit.  Please refer to that calendar.  Any changes to the printed calendar will be told to the students so that they may make adjustments to their own copy.
