Who we are?

About Us

Bright Science Academy was founded by Zainab in December 2015. She worked at schools in both the UK and Malaysia and has been the head of Science whilst conducting her normal teaching duties. She has trained many teachers in Malaysia and has a track record of outstanding lesson observations.

Zainab has also been recognised as an outstanding teacher by the Royal Society of Chemistry and been nominated for the Pearson’s Teaching Award by many of her students.

Her mission is to provide a holistic approach to education and she strongly believes that,

“True success can only come about if we work on all aspects of the child together with their families and teachers – each one has a fundamental role and we cannot reach the final goal without them, a bit like a jigsaw puzzle.”

Our Team

Our team has been carefully handpicked to ensure we all share the same vision for Bright Science Academy. We focus on building an excellent rapport with clients as our foundation, from which we build on to provide an outstanding holistic education, resulting in exceptional academic success.

Our clients praise Bright Science Academy for our team of strong tutors who all have a passionate and unconventional style to teaching.

We’re a highly experienced, collaborate and energic group who get our energy from seeing our students achieve their full potential. Their success is our success.
