Our Team

Concerned with the quality of teaching in schools and in other centres, The Thought Tailor was created with the intent to provide quality English and Humanities education for Secondary and JC students, and for over ten  years, our team of award-winning teachers have been providing quality tuition and enrichment programmes.


All of our teachers have taught at MOE schools, and most of them have either graduated from prestigious universities or were offered places there, including Cambridge, Oxford, and King's College London. Many of our teachers are also assessment book writers with leading educational publishing firms in South East Asia. We understand the importance of having good, caring and effective teachers and we have a stringent recruitment criteria and process to select only the best and most passionate educators, so that we may provide the best learning opportunities for your child. Our teachers also undergo continuous professional development to ensure that our curricula, pedagogy and assessment will always remain unrivalled. ​We strongly believe that The Thought Tailor is more than a tuition centre, and better than a school, and we advocate active coaching, rather than passive teaching. We will walk next to your child through his/her academic journey, and we will attempt to understand his or her strengths and weaknesses, and also to be a friend, a mentor in this journey to success.
