We are a group of dedicated educators who believe firmly in holistic education.
To us, every child is unique with boundless potential that can be developed through the meticulously planned programmes. At GRAM'S, we aim to develop not just your child's academic excellence but also enjoy the process of learning, and character building through boutique learning.
We believe in process-based learning in a small class size setting to develop one's language, creativity & character.
CompreGRAM (Chinese) – Programme Developer
Growing up in a Chinese-speaking family, 朱老师 fell in love with the language, traditions and customs from a very young age. Cementing her passion for the language and working with children, 朱老师 went on to pursue her PGDE (Chinese) in NIE after graduating from NUS. She joined GRAM’S Learning Centre in 2012 after teaching in primary schools for several years. Her education in NUS enables her to incorporate English in the teaching of Chinese language which allows the students to learn and understand the language effectively. Beneath her soft demeanour is a passionate educator who strives to develop a fun and engaging Chinese curriculum that is not only in line with the MOE syllabus, but also interesting to the children.
Mr M. Farhan Ishak
CompreGRAM (English) – Programme Developer
Editor - Oops Odelia
“Books open doors that you had never imagined.”
Mr Farhan joined GRAM’S Learning Centre as an English programme developer in 2012 after a decade of teaching in primary schools. Working with children has been a lifelong passion as he has been tutoring since he was in secondary school. He believes that reading is the bedrock to mastering the English language. Learning is something that Mr Farhan takes very seriously as he has not stopped studying new skills to broaden his experience; from pursuing a degree in Journalism to professional photography. He brings a unique perspective to the lessons as he is one who understands that learning must not only be subjected to the classroom and worksheets but also one’s pursuit of their desires and dreams.

“Let your painting says that thousand words.”
Ms Sann’s love for the visual arts was influenced by her father from young, who used to be a regular contributor in the local newspaper for his comic strips. Ms Sann received both Singapore Press Holdings and Ngee Ann Kongsi scholarship during her years while she studied in NAFA. Thereafter, she graduated a Second Class Upper Honours majoring in Graphic Communications from the Loughborough University. She worked as a graphic designer in the advertising & events industries. Ms Sann enjoys working with children and took on the calling to teach at GRAM’S Learning, creating a specialised Art curriculum for children that aim to eventually help every child develop his or her individual art style through a theme-based process learning experience.
Ms Jean Chu
GooeyGRAM (Preschool Learning) – Programme Developer
“I believe that every child is a unique individual and strive to make a difference in their lives.”
Since young, Ms Jean has always aspired to be an early childhood educator. She first joined the Early Childhood industry back in 2006, as a Team Teacher in an international kindergarten. After a month in the job, she realized that this was her passion and what she really wanted to do as a profession. Having graduated with a Specialist Diploma in Early Childhood Education in 2008, she went on to pursue her degree in Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education and graduated in 2013. Resourceful, passionate, firm but never unkind, Ms Jean especially enjoys making learning fun for children by incorporating messy play activities into learning the English language for young children and thus, she created the signature GooeyGRAM programme at GRAM’S Learning.
" Would like to thank GRAM'S, Mr Farhan's guidance in his studies. He got AL 1 for his English."
"...I love Oops Odelia series so much (this is her second title with the first being 'It is Okay to Shout') because of the many underlying messages and lessons in their stories! And with it being a local publication, our children could well relate the tales to their every day lives and events! Win! So close to home and heart! Best!"

"Read the book just last week to the kids in view of ayah's birthday but never got the chance to make pancakes for his birthday. Today, he's got the cravings for pancakes and birthday boy made us pancakes for breakfast instead. Inspired by Oops Odelia."
