Our Senior Teachers and English Specialists
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
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 Mandy Ho - Levels (Pre-Primary, Primary, Secondary)
A graduate in English Language, Miss Mandy Ho brings with her more than 3 years of teaching experience.

Her wealth of experience in tutoring both children and adults allows her to anticipate, as well as resolve, the various needs of her students. With her keen eye for detail, she is equipped with the necessary skills and techniques to effectively engage and impart her love for English to her charges.
“I have always been a reserved child who lacked confidence until I was exposed to Literature classes in secondary school. Amazed by how poetry and prose can paint the thoughts of their writers so beautifully, I decided to try writing as well. This helped me express the emotions and thoughts that I did not dare to verbally. Having the ability to express myself fully also boosted my confidence.
From then, I understood the power of language. I hope to convey this to my students and have them experience it for themselves. At Creative Campus, I hope to pique students’ interest in English. The lessons learnt will take them beyond their schooling years.” ~ Mandy Ho, 2019

I hope to combine my strength and passion meaningfully and provide students with an enriching learning experience." ~ Claudie Tan, 2019

Armed with a strong academic background, Miss Teo hopes to impart an innate linguistic curiosity to her charges. It is with this skill that her charges learn how to write essays that showcase their personal voice.

I believe it is crucial for students to communicate effectively. To that end, having an intrinsic and indelible love for language and learning will take them above and beyond mere exam needs." ~ Fiona Teo, 2019
