tMentors

tMentors is a group of Tembusians who aspire to serve as elder brothers and sisters to bright, young students, by serving by example and with humility. Tutelage in this Interest Group (IG) is holistic and extends beyond academic guidance, with enrichment activities and sharings aimed at broadening the perspectives of our mentees. Our mentors are heartwarmingly dedicated to draw on their experiences and guide our mentees toward and beyond their examinations. Here at tMentors, we believe that the process of tutoring goes two-ways. By stepping out of their comfort zones, mentors grow alongside their mentees and find fulfillment in giving back to the community.

tMentors, in essence, is about service through tutelage and growth through shared moments.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
