Meet the founder

Chew Yoke Tong is the Founder of Terra Minds Learning Centre. She holds a Masters Degree in Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment (Institute of Education, University of London), Postgraduate Degree in Education (National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University) and Bachelor Degree of Arts with Honours (National University of Singapore).

Yoke Tong has more than 10 years of teaching experience in both secondary mainstream and Integrated Programme (IP) schools. She was also involved in curriculum work for the secondary unit at the Ministry of Education (Singapore).

As former Head of Department for Research Education in Raffles Institution, she has vast experience in teaching Geography and managing the Research Education department that develop students into independent and resourceful learners equipped with critical and creative thinking and research skills.

In 2006 and 2008, she was awarded the Caring Teacher Award (organized by National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technology University and ExxonMobile) for her care and efforts in meeting the social and emotional needs of her students.

Her interest in Geography and nature studies has influenced her parenting style and beliefs. She firmly believes in exposing her daughter to the wonders of nature by going for nature walks, searching for bugs and role-modeling daily commitments like recycling and using shopping bags.

Starting Terra Minds fulfills her dream of working with young children and sharing with them her geographical knowledge. She believes in the importance of instilling in children a sense of wonder and respect for the natural environment so that they will grow up to make informed decisions that protect the well-being of the earth.
