Meet Our Mentors
"Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher."
Pivot Academics is a community where all teachers consider themselves learning Mentors. By pooling and leveraging our strengths and expertise, we create the conditions for professional learning communities and prepare students for the challenges of modeling learning and leadership. Also, Pivot Academics is an exciting school for teachers as they are encouraged to look for opportunities and programs to enhance the learning experience for all students.
Our center embraces innovation in educational practice and encourages its staff to explore opportunities beyond conventional school practice. Our teachers collaborate to create the best possible learning environment and create time and opportunities for students to experience a variety of activities and ideas. They value and nurture excitement, they challenge, mentor and support, and they believe in the power of a growth mindset and positive psychology. At Pivot, our mentors strive to be the best teachers possible, helping to build and maintain an environment where all students can thrive.

Pivot Academics has partnered with Aspire Mentorship to launch the Pivot Medical Program for prospective medical students. The program is led by two doctors, Dr. Billy Leung and Dr. Alex Man, who are passionate about teaching and developing the next generation of doctors. Meanwhile, their passion and dedication to helping students have developed a solid team of like-minded mentors who are all fully qualified doctors in their current practice.
The entire network of Pivot medical mentors includes experts in all fields, including gastroenterology, oral and maxillofacial surgery, radiology, periodontology, and family medicine. All mentors share the same passion for teaching and dedicate their schedules to helping students wishing to pursue a career in medicine . Their goal is that you develop the characteristics of a successful doctor and subsequent successful entry into medical school. All mentors are actively engaged and up-to-date on the current application process for UK medical schools and have a comprehensive understanding of what it takes to be a qualified and successful candidate.
