Head of Science Department
Mr Goh is an ex-Science HOD who has more than 20 years of experience in Science education in MOE schools and reputable enrichment centres. Over the years, he has taught students from Primary Three to Six and guided them to achieve academic success while encouraging a spirit of inquiry. Mr Goh's lessons are always interactive and engaging as he helps students to acquire solid conceptual understanding through hands-on activities. His graduating classes have achieved well above the National Average for 'A' and 'A*' in PSLE Science.
Having been involved in the PSLE marking exercise for more than 10 years, he has a profound understanding of the requirements involved and the common pitfalls encountered in answering the open-ended section of the Science paper. With his immense experience, he has translated these requirements into a set of skills which students can apply confidently, and which will help them to achieve success in Science examinations.
Mr Alex Sim
Mr Alex Sim graduated with First Class Honours from Imperial College London with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology. An alumnus of the gifted education programme and Hwa Chong Institution, he has had consistently excellent results in Science both in the Singaporean education system and overseas. In his impeccable academic history, he achieved straight 'A's and Distinction at A-Level and received several awards for top results in his university modules.
Prior to joining MetaQuest, Mr Alex gave group tuition to students of varying academic strengths. He also performed stem cell research at the National University of Singapore, and is enthusiastic about sharing insights about the Science industry to inspire his students to think about their future career paths. With a passion for encouraging his students to be inquisitive about the world around them through the lens of Science, it is of great importance to him that students be imparted with critical thinking skills.
Ms Young Wong
Ms Young Wong graduated from the National University of Singapore (NUS) with an Honours degree (Distinction) in Life Sciences. She boasts an excellent academic track record in Science from her time in Red Swastika School to taking the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme. With her firm grounding in Science and diverse cultural experience overseas, Ms Young is well-positioned to teach and connect with local and foreign students.
During her candidature in NUS, Ms Young completed an interdisciplinary research project tying the biological sciences and physical sciences together. She was also part of the Special Programme in Science (SPS), which emphasised the importance of mentorship and laboratory work in Science over book learning. As a teacher, Ms Young shares the same philosophy. She hopes to use her expansive knowledge in Science and zeal for hands-on learning to ignite a lifelong curiosity in her students towards everyday phenomena and life’s big questions.
"My grandson Bessarion has been so excited about Science after attending his first lesson at MetaQuest... He had so much fun and he learnt a lot. He went home to share the good experience with his parents. He wanted to attend more of such lessons."
