and he is definitely not your average scholar, life coach and tutor.
But hey, that's not who you came here for, right?
A big and beautiful teng bong in my endangered heritage language Kristang to you and all those you love and cherish. My name is Kevin Martens Wong and I am a teacher, life coach, writer and independent researcher born, bred and based in Singapore and trained in Solutions-focused Therapy (IASTI CSFP). I am creole and mixed (Kristang / Portuguese-Eurasian / Peranakan / Hakka), gay, gay married, non-binary, an emotional and sexual abuse survivor, and am nationally and internationally recognised for my award-winning work in linguistics, language revitalisation, creative writing and teaching and coaching, especially the language revitalization initiative Kodrah Kristang, and a new theory of the human psyche called Individuation Theory. I do my best to express myself fully, joyously and maximally in this uncertain and confusing time, and I'm out here ready to show you how you can too, if you're ready to be bold, brave, beautiful and brenas inside and out.
Such transformational teaching is something I have never experienced and it has opened my eyes to the possibilities of truly passionate and committed teaching.

Never have I seen a teacher as phenomenal as Mr Wong, nor was I ever so inspired by any subject before GP and Mr Wong.
