Gavin's bio coming soon.

Lorraine Foo
Lorraine Foo
Deputy Centre Manager

LCCI Private Secretary and
Business Administration

My name is Lorraine Foo, a true blue Singaporean. As someone who had been through the SG education system and have 3 children of my own, I have always been interested in the education and enrichment scene in Singapore.

After finishing my studies, I have worked with multinational corporations in manufacturing, business administration and service industries until I joined HESS in 2005.

I have learned a lot from experienced HESS teachers and benefitted from HESS trainings conducted regularly. I love working with all children but have a soft spot for younger students.

Tanya Morunga
Native English Speaking Head Teacher

Bachelor of Arts,
Victoria University

My name is Tanya Morunga, and I’m from New Zealand. I have been working in education with kids for more than five years including one year here in Singapore.

I have always been interested in Education and its many facets. It was at university, where I developed a love for understanding the mind and how it develops.

After university, I spent four years in Taiwan teaching for HESS and learning about a different culture. HESS has taught me a lot and given me many chances to develop and grow, not only as teacher but as a head teacher too.

Beatrice Tok

My name is Beatrice Tok and I am an English Speech and Drama trainer. I was born in Singapore but spent most of my growing up years in America. There I discovered my love for working with children as well as my passion for drama and the performing arts.

After graduating from the University of Maryland, College Park with a Bachelor of Arts (Magna Cum Laude) in Hearing and Speech Sciences (major) and Linguistics (minor), I returned to Singapore and started training to become a Speech and Drama teacher.

Over the past six years, I have conducted classes at many schools, kindergartens, and childcares across Singapore. I enjoy introducing children to the world of drama and helping them grow in confidence.
