A double-degree holder from the National University of Singapore and the University of London, Kristie is both a trained accountant and a lawyer. She also has a Certificate in Early Childhood Education.
In the spirit of continual learning that she advocates, Kristie embarked on a mid-career change in her 30s. After leaving the legal profession, she ventured full time into the highly-challenging, yet fulfilling arena of tuition and enrichment.
A passionate educator at heart, Kristie has always believed that it is imperative to provide students with a good foundation from a young age. It was with this in mind that Mind Stretcher was conceived in 2002 – to provide value-added tutorial and enrichment lessons to the general masses and to stretch the potential of each and every student, regardless of his/her background. Starting her own tuition & enrichment centre also afforded Kristie some flexibility in working hours, which was especially important given the fact that she was then a single mother, tending to four young children.
Besides being involved in the operational aspects of the business, she was also instrumental in developing and writing the mind-stretching curricula for Science and Mathematics in the nascent years. Her eldest son, a 2012 President’s Scholar whom she coached, is the best testimony of Ms Kristie’s expertise as an educator.
