    All 5 of the biology teachers at my school are female, I've only been taught by 3 of them but they are pretty good, so no - they are not all awful.

    I have 2 teachers - one is fantastic, and female.

    I somehow doubt there's a correlation between gender and quality of teaching Biology A-level...

    What a stupid question. My biology teacher for AS/A2 was probably the best teacher I had all way through college. So no.

    My biology teacher is a woman and she's amazing. The male biology teacher we had before was terrible. He got everything wrong and when people in the class used to comment on it, he used to rant about how the textbooks were wrong.

    However, there are only two female biology teachers at my school and I've only been taught by one. The rest are men. So really I'm not a very good judge.

    I hate teachers who just read the textbook out or read presentations out. It ridiculous because as soon as you complain aswel, who ever you've complained to begins to get so defensive of the teacher. And thats just so immature, why not just consider the student may be right, and look into it.

    Theres literally about 3/4 of a page in the snab textbook about this experiment by some blokes that shows undifferentiated and differentiated cells express different proteins. Took my biology teacher who teaches straight out of the textbook a fortnight to understand it. I got it after about 20mins. Made MUCH more sense after looking up transcription.

    In hindsight, my (female) biology teacher was pretty good. She took it in good humour that I normally turned up to her lesson anything upto an hour late - apparently she used to have a bet with the rest of the class what time I would turn up! She also forced me to have some extra tuition at lunchtimes and I think she was pleased when I got an A in the GCSE.
