Our founder, Caron Ong, met countless students who had the desire to do well, but faced many challenges in their attempts to do so when he was teaching in a public school. For many students, they are either unable to keep up with their schoolwork or do not feel challenged enough from the generalized resources given at school. In school, teachers have to manage with large class sizes and are unable to dedicate enough time and resources to provide every child with focused academic help. Armed with a dream of providing quality education, Caron Ong founded TLCS in 2019. TLCS’ educators teach from the heart to help bring out the best in every child. At TLCS, we also believe that all children have the ability and potential to succeed in life regardless of their family background and thus seek to provide equitable education through our social programmes.
Mr Caron Ong is our Founder and Mathematics Specialist. He is in love with Mathematics (first love), Liverpool FC (second love) and his wife (true love). An ex-MOE teacher, he used to be a Subject Head for Curriculum Innovation and Mathematics, but decided that more can be done to help the less-privileged children in Singapore, so he took the plunge to leave MOE and set up TLCS. He loves teaching and learning, and is currently enrolled in a Masters in Mathematics Education programme with the National Institute of Education, believing that it will benefit all the children he teaches in future.
Ms Sabrina Ng is our English Specialist. She is an ex-MOE English and Humanities teacher who loves to bring the classroom to life with real-world examples. She enjoys sharing with her students the wonders and peculiarities of English and hopes to inspire her students to love the language and use it with confidence. Widely experienced with students who come from different backgrounds, she sees education as an opportunity and teaching gives every child this opportunity. With that belief, Ms Sabrina is also committed to designing the centre’s academic support programmes for underprivileged students in the community.
