Subject Head (Lower Primary Science)
Ms Kim did her Bachelor’s at Yale-NUS College with honours in Environmental Studies. Because of her experience from studying in Shanghai, she can communicate fluently in Chinese and English with parents. She placed in the top 3% in her cohort with her IB results, obtaining maximum scores in subjects like Biology, Chemistry, Geography, English, as well as Mathematics.
Ms Kim believes that with patience, confidence, and constant practice, all students can master Science and Math. She stands firm that learning Science is not just about mastering skills and techniques - it is also about exploring the world and strengthening logical thinking and reasoning with proper concepts. She pushes students to think critically and develop their own interests and love for the subjects.
Ms Kim has been teaching primary and lower secondary school students as early as 2013. She is familiar with the struggles and obstacles students go through when adapting back in Singapore, facing challenges like changes in tests syllabi and low confidence in new settings. Because of this shared background, she connects very well with her students and gains their trust easily. Under her guidance, many students have shown improvements in grades and learning attitudes.
Currently, Ms Kim is the subject head (lower primary Science) and teaches Primary Mathematics and Science at GM.
