Teaching Assistant

I was born and raised in Kandy, Sri Lanka and I studied English and Literature for my Bachelor of Arts at the University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka. Just after graduation, I started working in the university as an Instructor and found myself to be a passionate teacher. Therefore, I did my masters in Linguistics from the University of Kelaniya, Sri Lanka and at the moment I am reading for my next Masters on Teaching English as a Second Language from the Open University, Sri Lanka. I have 11 years of teaching experience in tertiary education in Sri Lanka covering both vocational training institutes and universities.

I am married and I have a seven-year-old daughter who is in Oryx International. School We moved to Qatar nearly two years ago and I enjoy the multicultural community of Qatar. I spend my free time reading books, baking for my family and doing acrylic landscape paintings. I also love to travel and explore new cultures.

I am excited to join Oryx International which ensures a five-star learning environment for the kids. I look forward to contributing with all my capacity and skills to ensure an enriched learning environment for the kids at Oryx International school while being a supportive team player.
