A graduate in Mass Communications and a former Food and Wine Journalist for several publications, Adeline was searching for an endeavour to sate the need for fulfilment. That’s when she started to teach. Shortly after, she authored the local bestseller “Score the A* You Deserve in PSLE Writing”. It was then that Adeline realised her inherent flair for writing and love for teaching helped change the lives of the many students who sought after her classes. A hunger to lead a team of professional and passionate teachers led to the founding of The Right Word. With the completion of her Masters in Teaching English to Young Learners, Adeline has refined both theory and practice to conceive The Right Word’s pedagogy – The SAIL Approach.
Teaching was an unplanned move for this former SAF-turned-Financial-Services-professional who found his calling when he was a school teacher with the National Institute of Education (NIE). Thereafter, Kelvin was a private tutor to a handful of students. The success of his students and demand for his classes led to the switch in teaching group classes. His commitment to ensuring students experience significant grade jumps is what attracts parents to enrol all their children with him. A firm believer of inspiring students to go beyond their perceived potential, Kelvin is a devoted educator who continually refines his craft.
With close to a decade of teaching experience, Alvin has found teaching English a particularly fulfilling profession. He has a fervent passion for language and humanities, giving up a career in research to focus on language teaching. Alvin’s background in corporate training has given him an edge in curriculum development and planning. Hence, it is no surprise that the students he has taught over the years from Lower Primary to Upper Secondary have benefitted from him greatly. Alvin finds the greatest joy in helping struggling students see potential in themselves and stellar students scale to the pinnacle of their achievements.
