batcavern staffAnxious about Anatomy and Physiology?

Intimidated by Introduction to Biology?

Jittery over General Biology?

In the Batcavern, we understand. The Batcavern staff members have been through it. The students in the Batcavern have been through it or are going through it now: but through comprehensive preparation and support, you can conquer your fears and even have fun. Students meet in a quiet, congenial atmosphere.

The Batcavern is part lab, part library, part tutoring center, and part support group for students in Biology, Chemistry, and the Health Professions. You can work individually or in a group in a friendly setting. Knowledgeable staff members can help you to find the answers to your questions and give you encouragement. Our Practice Practical Exams are particularly popular. Individual and group tutoring are available by appointment and without charge.
