Our Senior Teachers
Ms Germaine Lee - Levels (Primary & Lower Secondary)
Ms Lee is no stranger to Creative Campus, having taught our Primary 6 students in 2011. She is a respected and valued colleague of our directors for over a decade at The Learning Lab.
Having found her niche and passion in teaching after her stint as a lawyer, Ms Lee’s students love her for her nurturing ways and wonderful creative energy. She has a wealth of experience in teaching and curriculum development, including the Gifted Education Programme and the Integrated Programmes.
"At thirteen, I fell in love when I attended my first Literature lesson. My English teacher unlocked my mind to the beauty and the living nature of the language. I saw that words could light fires under feet, make hearts beat faster and bring tears to eyes. As a student in the Art Elective Programme then, I was thrilled that words painted pictures. At that point, English ceased to be just another school subject to ace. Later, I became a teacher because I am excited about helping students enjoy the written word as well. I believe that reading actively enables a deeper connection with our imaginations and a lively engagement with the world that we live in. It is intrinsic to nurturing a child’s creativity.
At Creative Campus, I work in a nurturing environment with colleagues who are equally passionate about English and learning. Together, we strive to inspire and empower the learning journeys of our students." ~ Ms Germaine Lee, 2016
Mrs Lew Marn Lai - Levels (Primary)
Mrs Lew is an ex-MOE teacher and comes to us with over 27 years of teaching experience in mainstream schools.
Mrs Lew is firm, yet motherly and nurturing with her charges. Her love for teaching and strong pedagogy has helped the little ones in building a firm foundation and love for the English language.
“I have been teaching at Creative Campus for the past five years and there has never been a dull moment. The well-crafted and current curriculum keeps me on my toes as an educator. It is a joy to have understanding bosses and great support from helpful colleagues. I always feel I can approach anyone on the team to ask for help or to bounce ideas off of.
Creative Campus is different from other enrichment centres because I see the warmth and personal care we extend to the students and their parents. Plus, lessons are always fun! In the coming years, I look forward to seeing the family of Creative Campus grow in staff and student strength and that we continue to provide a dynamic curriculum for students of all abilities.” ~ Lew Marn Lai, 2016
Mr Andronicus Tang - Levels (Primary, Secondary and GP)
Mr Andronicus Tang
* MA (Applied Linguistics), National Technological University of Singapore
* Ex-Teacher, Ministry of Education
* Senior Teacher and Curriculum Developer
* Over 15 years of teaching experience
* Primary, Secondary and General Paper Levels
Mr Tang has a passion for the English language, Literature and Media Studies. An ex-MOE teacher, he has taught at the primary, secondary and pre-university levels for over 15 years.
With a Masters in Applied Linguistics, he believes in equipping his students with the ability to monitor and evaluate their own learning. Students who have adopted this learning strategy have often shown a noticeable improvement in their reading and writing abilities. Moreover, he is an advocate of critical literacy and maintains that one should never be a passive reader, or worse, a passive thinker.
“Creative Campus and I are on the same page as we believe that Literature empowers one to write effectively, speak eloquently and think critically. I’ve no doubt that its literature-infused language curriculum will arm students with the linguistic ammunition to tackle comprehension passages and writing tasks of all kinds. Studies have proven that and my own research has shown this to be true too.
To students who are sceptical about it, I say to them – doubt no more, join us and taste the joy of achieving the breakthrough you’ve been yearning for. Be a cut above the rest!” ~Andronicus Tang, 2018
Our Teacher Associates and Specialist Teachers
Mr Chong Jin - Levels (Primary, Secondary)
A litigator at leading law firms, both locally and abroad, Chong Jin returned to Singapore after 1.5 years as a legal practitioner in the UK.
With his legal background and extensive teaching experience, he brings to his classes a wealth of unique perspectives and practical knowledge. The Raffles alumni is passionate about creating an engaging and interesting learning environment for his students.
"As a student, I always loved English classes because it is the subject that I find most limitless and without boundaries. Composition writing topics grew from a simple 150-word story about a day at the beach to sharing my views on why the internet is one of the most crucial inventions ever.
I have never been shy to share my opinions, and always have the patience to learn the adventures or views of others. Now as an educator, my students learn through the teaching of core examination skills, complemented by knowledge and views, that they will be honed to express with oratorical prowess and writing finesse." ~ Chong Jin, 2017
Ms Chua Beng Wan - Levels (Primary)
Ms Chua's interest in teaching was ignited when, at the age of 19, she became the relief form teacher of a Primary Five class for six months before entering university. Upon graduation, however, she took up positions in staff training and development; oversaw editorials and newsletters; and wrote board papers.
With her vast experience in various enrichment programmes for both the public and private schools, Ms Chua has helped many of her charges excel under her tutelage. Her interest and passion for the language remains the driving force behind her students' stellar essays.
"When I was young, I would pore over my brother's copy of 'Speak Better, Write Better' by Reader's Digest. I had an immense interest for the English language. While enjoying various storybooks, I would marvel at how the thoughts and actions could come alive through the written word. Hence, I am confident of inculcating the same love of the language to my students.
In my classroom, I don't want to be just another face the students see standing in front of them, especially after a long day at school, prescribing model phrases and answers.
I want to provide a nurturing environment where students feel empowered to use the language, own the language and unlock the world with the same language. Thus, it is imperative that students develop a keen interest in the world around them."
~ Beng Wan, 2019
Ms Cleonice Lee - Levels (Pre-Primary, Primary)
Ms Lee is a nurturing instructor who sets high expectations of the English language, both of herself and of the students under her charge. As a mother of three boys who attend top local schools, Ms Lee is aware of the rigours of our education system. In class, Ms Lee makes learning meaningful by connecting the curriculum on hand with relatable points, especially for the little ones.
“I left JP Morgan after a decade as a commodity trader to put my family first. Having three boys with very different personalities (now 17, 15 and 12) pushed me to adopt different parenting styles to bring out the best in each one of them. I enjoy spending time with children. Being a Sunday school teacher for six years keeps me on my toes and challenges me to engage the children's’ interests weekly. It has been a rewarding experience, especially when they greet me with big smiles even though I don’t teach their classes anymore.
Having seen my boys go through Creative Campus, and witnessing first hand the well-researched materials, I am truly excited to be a part of this team. I look forward to nurturing the love for reading in the little ones; spurring confidence in them to express and develop their personal style; and engaging their creativity in the language.” ~ Cleonice Lee, 2017
Miss Claryce Lim - Levels (Pre-Primary, Primary, Secondary)
A graduate in English Language and Literature, Miss Claryce Lim brings with her more than 5 years of teaching experience, as well as a wealth of anecdotes from her marketing and communications days.
Miss Lim's strength lies in her ability to bridge the necessary skills and literary techniques with real-world examples to enliven the class discussions. With her energy and warmth, she is effective in engaging and imparting her love for Literature and writing to her charges.
“I fell in love with English Language and Literature even before I could read. Growing up in a pre-audiobook world, my mother would record her own voice and introduce me to worlds that I would frequent and inhabit. When I grew up and started to think about literature more than just entertainment, an epiphany occurred to me. The reason why we study the subject is to learn to be empathetic. Putting ourselves in the shoes of various characters brings perspective to our world.
With a growing tendency on rote teaching and absolutes in other subjects, English remains a gateway for creativity to flourish. This is one of the many reasons why I love it so much. Passing this passion on to the next generation is something I aim to achieve.” ~ Claryce Lim, 2018
Miss Claudie Tan - Levels (Pre-Primary, Primary, Secondary)
Miss Claudie Tan is a welcomed addition to the Campus family. After graduating from Rosyth and St Nicholas Girls’ school, Miss Tan went on to Australia to further her studies in Psychology. A trained behavioural therapist, her gentle demeanour earns her the trust of her charges and often, get them to achieve the objectives of each lesson effectively.
Miss Tan's strength lies in her ability to understand the needs of an anxious child, and being equipped with the necessary skills and techniques to effectively engage and impart her love for English to her charges.
“English has always been my strongest subject. I have loved reading and writing since a young age and have written articles for online platforms in my free time. I have a passion for teaching and believe that learning English can be fun for everyone. I hope to combine my strength and passion meaningfully and provide students with an enriching learning experience." ~ Claudie Tan, 2019
