About me

Hi I'm Tessa! I'm currently studying for my PhD at Cambridge in an interdisciplinary biosciences programme. I previously completed my undergrad at UCL in Natural Sciences, specialising in Physics and Molecular and Cell Biology for which I got a First. I know firsthand how difficult science subjects can be to master, but I am really passionate about teaching these subjects and sharing my interest.

Hi I'm Tessa! I'm currently studying for my PhD at Cambridge in an interdisciplinary biosciences programme. I previously completed my undergrad at UCL in Natural Sciences, specialising in Physics and Molecular and Cell Biology for which I got a First. I know firsthand how difficult science subjects can be to master, but I am really passionate about teaching these subjects and sharing my interest. I hope to help you achieve your goals and enjoy learning as much as possible along the way. Having been through the applications process a few times myself, I am also keen to share how to successfully write a personal statement and prepare for interviews. I came from an international school with a very low Oxbridge acceptance rate, but there are definitely common factors that you can incorporate into your application to put your best foot forward at such competitive universities. I also studied Mandarin my whole life, so I completely understand how challenging it can be to learn as a second language, and would love to help in this aspect as well. I also studied Higher Level English Literature in the IB programme in school, and continue studying literature as a hobby to this day.


I taught students aged 4-16 English as a second language at a private tutoring centre in Hong Kong. This allowed me to gain a lot of experience with a wide range of ages and has taught me how to change my methods and explanations to best suit the student in any situation.

About my sessions

The way sessions are structured will be largely decided by what you need! If you are looking for long-term help with a particular subject, I like to start by finding out exactly what you are finding challenging and addressing this one step at a time. We will try and keep up with the syllabus, and go through many practice questions so that you can practice.


If you are in exam season, I think it is all about practice. I will supply you with as many realistic exam questions fo...

If you are looking for long-term help with a particular subject, I like to start by finding out exactly what you are finding challenging and addressing this one step at a time.

If you are in exam season, I think it is all about practice. I will supply you with as many realistic exam questions for you to complete. We can also discuss exam strategies and time allocation so that you perform your absolute best during this time! Having been through this whole process myself, I fully understand and empathise with how stressful the period can be and I am keen to help students understand their subject to the best of their ability and showcase this knowledge as much as possible during assessments.

Tessa is so helpful and extremely kind; she doesn't make you feel intimidated at all; instead she makes you super comfortable with asking her anything you weren't clear in :)
