Ms Young Wong

Teacher


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.
