I come from the Maldives but have been living in the UK for some years now.
I studied undergrad at Kings College London in Mathematics and Physics and hold a PhD in Physics. I have been working at INTO London for some time now and have over 20 years teaching experience.
My role is the Mathematics and Physics teacher at INTO London. I enjoy very much working with international students. I myself was an international student once when I came here to study in London, so I know how they feel, especially when they first get here and begin studying with us. It’s really amazing here at INTO London sometimes, we have students from over 40 different counties.
I always tell students they are here to learn, not to perform. The educational system is different for students when they come here, so it is important for them to understand that in order to learn something, they need to understand it, not just memorise it.
I try to bring in as many real life examples as possible for my students to help them understand.
What’s the most rewarding part of your job?
I would say seeing how students progress would be the most rewarding part of my job and seeing how students do in assessments. Its a very positive feeling if a student initially was struggling, but then does well in their assessments, which to me shows they are constantly improving and growing along the duration of the course.
