The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.William Arthur Ward
At Elevate, our teachers believe in bringing every student to their maximum potential. We understand that all our students will have different aptitudes and styles when it comes to learning. More than just teachers, we serve as mentors and listening ears to our students so that we can attend closely to each of their learning needs. Every one of our teaching staff work closely with our students in and out of the classrooms to create unique bonds with each student.

Son, husband, father, teacher, entrepreneur, friend – these are just the few hats that Teacher Isaac wears. Laughter can always be heard from Teacher Isaac’s classroom, indication of his strong rapport with his students. Students are never afraid to raise their doubts as Teacher Isaac has always been the most patient and kind mentor towards the students. He will repeat himself (often being called naggy by his students) until the students understand the concept and leave the classroom with new found knowledge.
Armed with years of tutoring experience of the Mathematics and Principles of Accounting, and bad dad jokes, Teacher Isaac has produced batches after batches of students with excellent results.
A good teacher, like a good entertainer first must hold his audience’s attention, then he can teach his lesson.John Henrik Clarke

Having been in the tuition industry since she was 18, Teacher Catherine has accumulated years of experience in the field of Science education. She is able to breakdown concepts into bite-sized pieces for her students and turn mundane topics into something more interesting for her students by injecting informations that she has accumulated over her years of studies (as well as her many hours of watching Discovery Channel and National Geographic as a child). Teacher Catherine tries to keep up with the trends that the students are into so as to integrate them into her teaching, and to stay relevant with her students.
For the past decade, Teacher Catherine has helped many students achieve their goals and score for their national examinations!

Teacher Huzaifi brought along his 7 years of teaching experience when he joined the Elevate family. He was previously in the Raffles Institution Integrated Programme before moving on to obtain his Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering.
Teacher Huzaifi has been described by his students as a patient teacher who is able to break down complicated physics concepts and calculations into bite-sized pieces for them. Being an avid sportsman, Teacher Huzaifi has used a floorball to explain Magnetism to his class before, talk about being creative and thinking out of the box!
Teacher Huzaifi loves giving his students examination papers and questions to test their understanding and increase their exposure to as many questions types as possible (we have an arsenal of examination papers!) and has produced many students who has scored very well for their examinations!
