Ever since I was a child, I have aspired to be a teacher. Thinking
back, this passion was kindled by teachers who have guided and made
significant impact on my life. My teachers have helped me in many
ways: sharpening my thinking, inspiring me and moulding my character
through my growing years.
However, as I entered the workforce, I forgot my initial dream of
becoming an educator. Daunted by the demands of life, I joined the rat
race. Yet, despite having a rewarding job, I knew that deep within
me, something was missing. There seemed to be a void that I could not
Fortunately, my initial dream was rekindled when my career took me to
new roles- firstly in an International School, and subsequently in one
of the leading enrichment centres in Singapore. Somehow, something
clicked, and I became determined to stay within the education
I felt a spark reignite within me! Years of industry experience, my
childhood dreams and my own experience as a mother, all started to
fall in place. For the first time, I felt ready to reach out to
students, to nurture and inspire them to be the best that they could
be, and to encourage them to have the courage to pursue their dreams.
I feel strongly that the bottom line of education is more than just
about profits. Engaging students to learn meaningfully and effectively
will pave the path for academic success. Equally crucial is nurturing
them to have the necessary grit, and to be emotionally and mentally
resilient. Though these areas are difficult to measure, I believe they
should be part of the key success indicators of an enrichment centre.
Finally, I mustered enough courage to pursue my dreams and
set up my own enrichment centre. The key to ignite a student’s
learning is the Teacher. A great teacher will transform a student’s
learning journey beyond academic excellence. Therefore, I am extremely
stringent in my selection of teachers. Not only must they be
pedagogically sound, they must also have a genuine passion and love
I also firmly believe in reading and drama-infused language
programmes. They set the stage in developing a child’s confidence,
creative thinking skills and ability to discover and enhance their
own, as well as their teammates’ strengths. All these factors are key
attributes to success.
I have been blessed to find rare
talents like Brenda, Chloe, Wilfred and Ee Hoon to be the Heads of
English, Maths, Science and Chinese respectively. We share the same
vision that enrichment should be run with a Big Heart to help students
achieve beyond academic excellence, cultivate the right values and
attitudes to succeed in life. As a team, we believe customization is
necessary to unleash the potential of every student. We adopt a
“whatever it takes” approach and teachers are empowered to pursue
various strategies and techniques when teaching a student.
I am grateful to have our pioneer students and their parents who trust
and support us in making this dream come true. Together, we can look
forward to an extraordinary learning journey.
To be an enrichment centre where teachers, students and parents foster
a long lasting relationship. We nurture students to achieve academic
excellence, develop strength of character and cultivate values needed
to succeed in life.
We recognize that each student is unique and has different learning
styles and needs. We create a nurturing learning environment whereby
students build strong relationships with their mentors. In turn, we
motivate them to become effective and confident self-learners.
Throughout this learning journey, our experienced, highly driven and
passionate teachers will engage them with customized curriculum to
achieve academic excellence. We want our students to feel proud and
motivated by how much they have progressed, and to realise that
anything is possible.
