Mrs Nora de Silva (a.k.a. Mrs D) 1964 - 2019

A specialist English Language and English Literature teacher and curriculum developer with over 25 years of experience, Mrs D had the rare distinction of being one of the very few teachers who could claim to have taken many students from the Singapore (SEAB) PSLE English Language to the A-Level General Paper.


Over the years, Mrs D devised her time-tested lesson plans. Designed to hone foundational skills while providing insights on advanced exam strategies, the lessons also cover a range of content from enduring topics to fresh materials on current affairs. 

Mrs D was an ex-Raffles Institution (RI) GEP teacher who

  • was involved in curriculum design in the pivotal first 10 years of Singapore's Gifted Education Programme (the precursor of Singapore's Integrated Programme)

  • was an English Language and Literature specialist

  • was familiar with the route to scholarship awards (even sifting out President's Scholars when they were only Sec 2!)

  • taught humanities scholars in a top JC, as well students from mainstream schools but with special needs (dyslexia, dyspraxia, Asperger's, expressive language disorder, specific language disability, to name a few),

  • converted erstwhile Maths-inclined students and computer geeks into published poets

  • transformed students from Chinese Language dominant family backgrounds into humanities scholars,

  • helped the lower secondary ACSI students make the cut to get into the International Baccalaureate programme

  • motivated Normal stream students to make the jump to Express stream

  • served as practicum trainer/examiner for professional courses for senior PSLE EL teachers

The lessons are currently being taught by Ms Nicole de Silva (Ms D).
