  • Pramod Reddy

    Pramod Reddy


    H.O.D - Mathematics

    As a facilitator I motivate students in ascertaining their inner strengths, abilities and discovering what truly inspires them. I aim to provide an environment that encourages students to trust their own abilities in order to realize their full potential and I would like to create a love of learning and a desire for constant knowledge within each student. Through my teaching experience I have found the method of facilitating to be a highly beneficial style of teaching rather than dictating.

    I have learned that if students construct their own learning experiences then they not only retain information longer, but they will also become more confident in their abilities. I love working with children and will continue to strive to be a positive influence in their lives. I believe that my instructional abilities, combined with my strong interpersonal skills would greatly benefit the educational program.

    Ms. Afshan Urooj is the Head of Department for English and Business Studies at Solitaire Global Schools. She holds an M.B.A degree in Human Resources and has been teaching the IGCSE and A levels curriculum for the past six years.

    She strongly believes that educators should leave behind the role as disseminators of content and embrace the new paradigm as cultivators of curiosity, inquiry and self-directed learning. Today schools should promote a style of teaching that prioritizes student autonomy, voice, and empowerment.

    Every teacher has a huge impact on the students that come through their doors each morning, but the very best have an impact that goes far beyond their classroom. Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, and insists that they can become the best that they can possible be.
