    These quizzes are very helpful and what I especially like about them is how if you get it wrong, it will keep asking you until you get it right.

        I’ll have more on evolution (natural selection and speciation) after this summer (sorry!). Tell me more about the classification/biodiversity material. Do you mean understanding about animal phyla?
        Let me know.

    These quizzes are really awesome! I never really got meiosis until today. Also, your songs helped me a lot to prepare for my college exam! it’s about plant physiology and it wasn’t until I saw your videos that I got the big picture. Thank you so much!!

    I’ve stumbled here from your great heart rap and the quiz that goes with it. Thanks, my Biologists are in for a fun start to todays lesson.

    Just to let you know that I’m getting 404 errors when clicking on the Mitosis and Meiosis links from the quizzes page.

    This is a very useful resource and I’ll be sure to share this with my colleagues.

    Hello Mr. W,

    I’m studying biochemistry and from time to time I struggle remembering where all that “biochemistry” happens exactly. Because we are so into details. :-)
    Has been a while since I graduated from school, so thanks A LOT for your vids, gap texts and index cards. It’s so much fun and it gave me the perfect overview!

    Greetings form Germany! (Hi KL ;-P)

    I love how all of the information is right there in front of you in a way that is easy to understand. It shows you everything in a step by step fashion to make sure you don’t get confused. I will definitely be using this website in the future to help me with my studies! 😀

    Mr. W,
    My classes look forward to a tune from you on every topic we cover. Bacteria!!! Please tell me you have a song. My microbiology classes (10th grade core biology class at our school) really found your I’m a virus song very clever. We are studying bacteria now and wondering if you’ve got a rap or jingle up your sleeve? Thanks for posting your work for us to enjoy. Laurie

    • Mr. W
      October 6, 2015 at 3:37 pm

      Hi Laurie,
      Nothing directly on bacteria! Sorry!
      I’m curious about whether you’ve used any of my tutorials with your students. If so, let me know what you (and they) thought!
      Mr. W

        Just your music so far. DNA is the #1 hit with my freshman in Genetics, although the nuclear division ones are terrific, too.
        My sophomore micro class begins with Viruses—->Bacteria——>Protists——>Fungus. Lastly, my juniors in Comparative Zoology focus on the inverts. Anymore songs???? Laurie

          October 6, 2015 at 7:07 pm

          Hi Laurie,
          I think you’ll need to teach a freshman class for my stuff to be really useful!

    Mr. W., I teach high school living environment and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE your videos. I show them in class and I have a link to your site on my Google classroom.
    I can’t get the songs out of my head! Do you teach high school or college?

      Hi Louis. Thanks for your comment. I teach 9th graders at Berkeley High School. But, I have also taught AP bio, and a lot of my content is geared toward that level, too. If you ever have a chance to experiment with my Karaoke videos or my on-line tutorials, I’d love to know what you think.
      And I’m a Long Island boy myself. Grew up in Westbury, right in the middle of Nassau County.
      Good luck!
      Mr. W

        Wow ! Small world! I am from Oceanside but I live in Baldwin with my wife and three children. I have been teaching at East Rockaway High School for 14 years now. Before that I was an ultrasound technologist for 10 years and a pediatric ultrasound technologist for 5 of those years. I love to bring my medical experiences Into the class discussions and I loved your link of temperature affecting enzymes and having a fever so I spoke about febrile seizures in class and what causes them. I saw your osmosis video and the gummy bear and Mr. W. Was freaky!! I LOVE IT !!! KEEP THEM COMING !!!

          Sorry I meant to type “the gummy bear Mr. W. Was freaky” .

      Hi Rajveer. It’s a combination of two things I love: biology and music. I can’t help myself but think of these lyrics, and I’m lucky enough to have a great music partner, the incredible Max Cowan, to help me produce the music.
      Thanks for your comment and praise!
      Mr. W
