Aside from my experience on Wyzant, I have 2 years of experience writing lesson plans and teaching high schoolers in a variety of subjects, particularly in the sciences, as part of multiple volunteer programs.

Hi, I'm Tessa! I graduated from Brown University with an ScB in Biology with Honors. Aside from my experience on Wyzant, I have 2 years of experience writing lesson plans and teaching high schoolers in a variety of subjects, particularly in the sciences, as part of multiple volunteer programs. I have also mentored several high school seniors in the college admissions process and guided them in crafting their college application essays. My goal is to connect with students to understand their unique learning styles, and this helps me tailor lesson plans and exercises to fit each student individually.

I have experience in advanced college-level biology, with a focus in immunobiology. Additionally, I completed two years of lab research that contributed to my undergraduate thesis. Prior to college, I earned a 5 on the AP Biology exam. As a science lover myself, I want student to feel excited about their coursework, whether they need help with concepts or just want to get ahead. I welcome the opportunity to work with students from the level of middle school sciences through AP Biology.

I also offer direction in brainstorming and writing college admissions essays. My goal is to bring out the student's voice to create essays that utilize the student's strengths and communicate their personal journeys.

Creative and amiable

Tessa and I brainstormed ideas for my transfer application. She was really helpful and gave me a lot of good advices. I couldn’t start the process because my ideas were all over the place and she helped me narrow topics I can talk about.

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor

Tessa explains concepts clearly which is easy for my son to understand. My son was very happy with her method of teaching and felt that he learnt a lot from her in the one hour then he had with this school teacher. She is very well versed in AP Bio and therefore could dive right in.

Enlightening

It is as useful to follow her advice as it is enjoyable to converse with her. I am lucky to work with her, to get her thoughtful instruction, guidance and encouragement and benefit from her professionalism and pedagogical skills. Tessa is proficient also with this great platform (wyzant), where sessions are recorded, and there is need for note taking. I've learned greatly from her. Thank you Tessa.
