Shaun Tan

Rather than let students settle into a comfort zone, I like to push them to become better, to dare to try new things and new challenges. I support my students to achieve high standards, explore outside their comfort zones and overcome their weaknesses, turning them into strengths.

With a background in teaching humanities and English across primary and secondary levels, Shaun excels in guiding students through application processes and test preparation strategies.
