Mr. Gilbert Lee

Mr Gilbert Lee graduated from the National University of Singapore (NUS) with a Bachelor of Arts degree with Merit in Economics and a Bachelor of Social Sciences with Honours in Economics. He also set the record for being the first undergraduate in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences to complete his Bachelor of Arts degree in two years. He was also awarded the Paul Sherwood Memorial Book Prize for being the best candidate in Economics in 1995/96. He then obtained his Master of Science degree at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) in the United Kingdom.

Upon graduation, he served at the National University of Singapore’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences as a Senior Tutor, teaching undergraduate courses from first year to third year, as well as serving as external marker for a Masters’ thesis from the Nanyang Technological University (NTU). However, he discovered that his passion lie in teaching high school students because it gave him an avenue to develop the students’ character that the limited contact time at university prevented. As such, he left the university, giving up a full scholarship to pursue a Doctoral degree at the University of California at Berkeley.

Since then Mr Lee joined the Ministry of Education. Having received his Diploma in Education from the National Institute of Education (NIE), he served nine years at the National Junior College (NJC) where he taught H1, H2 and H3 Economics. During his service at NJC, Mr Lee was awarded numerous accolades including the Caring Teacher Award, the College Values Award for Scholarship with Creativity, as well as the Nanyang Technological University’s Certificate of Honour, presented by President S.R. Nathan, for inspirational mentorship of his student, Benny Quek, to academic excellence.

After almost a decade of service at NJC, Mr Lee was recruited by Dunman High School (DHS) to develop the instructional programme for Economics at the newly established Senior High section of DHS. In the capacity of Subject Head, Mr Lee led and trained the team of Economics teachers to deliver a very strong programme at DHS. In his brief year and a half, Mr Lee was awarded the Most Innovative Teaching Award, and was nominated as DHS’ entry for the President’s Award for Teachers in 2009. Many of his former students have graduated from or are studying at top universities internationally including the Harvard University, University of Chicago, Stanford University, LSE, Cambridge University, University of Warwick, and all the three local universities. Most of them are reading Economics.

Since 2010, Mr Lee has joined Learners’ Lodge Education Centre as a full time staff, serving as Senior Education Specialist, teaching Economics classes at both JC1 and JC2 levels. He also served part-time as a supervisor for NIE trainee Economics teachers during their practicum.

Mr Lee had also published a book in 2010, together with Associate Professor Anthony Chin, entitled “Getting it Right: A Case Study Guide for GCE ‘A’ Level Economics”. In 2011, Mr Lee published a new book entitled “A comprehensive guide to writing economics essay”. It is designed to provide economics students with an easy to use framework to develop essay writing skills needed to ace the essay paper.

Opening Quotes   Mr Lee never fails to make his lessons engaging and his exam skills lessons are particularly helpful. The most valuable lesson is perhaps how he teaches us to see Economics as more than just an academic subject but as a part of our daily life.   Closing Quotes
