    I completed my undergraduate study at the University of Wales, Newport and hold a BA Hons in History and Archaeology and a PGCSE from the University of the West of England, Bristol. I have taught for over 13 years and during this time have worked in schools in Wales, England, Qatar and China.

    Sudipta Chakravorty

    Chemistry Teacher

    Sudipta Chakravorty

    I first realised my passion for teaching 23 years ago, when my friends and I started a pre-school in Al Khor, Qatar. It was the first of its kind in Al Khor, and the intent was to build a place that enhances learning and community living. 

    I have a Master's degree in Organic Chemistry and have a keen interest towards scientific application. With over two decades of experience in education, I now return to NAISAK after a two-year sabbatical. I began my journey in 1999 at another international school in Al Khor, and have worked across a wide range of subjects, age groups and roles that involved design and delivery.

    After pursuing my PGCE in 2007 from Sunderland, I taught Maths, Physics, Biology and Chemistry to secondary students, though my true interest was teaching and doing experiments in Chemistry.

    Reena Singh

    Head of Science

    Reena Singh

    I am a Science graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Education and have gained the iPGCE from a UK university. I have been teaching for twenty years. My husband’s job means that we have travelled a lot, and that is what brought us to Qatar. I have had the opportunity to work in different schools and with different groups of people. Prior to joining Nord Anglia International School Al Khor, I taught Secondary School Physics, worked as a whole-school Activity Coordinator, as well as an Assistant Headmistress. 

    I began working at NAISAK as a Primary School teacher, and then took on the role of Science Coordinator and Head of Year 4. This year, I will continue to work as the Science Coordinator for the whole school, and teach Science at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 in Secondary.

    Iman Campbell

    Biology Teacher

    Iman Campbell

    I'm so excited to join the NAISAK secondary team as a Teacher of Biology.

    Science has always been a passion of mine because it answers 'most' of life's big questions. I studied Biomedical Science BSc at King's College London and chose a lot of physiology modules because I love learning about the way the body works on a cellular level. I also did an anatomy module in my second year where I was able to dissect actual human bodies! 

    Since finishing my undergraduate degree I have completed my teacher training degree and 3 years of teaching post qualifications. I trained and worked at an Ofsted outstanding secondary school in South London prior to moving to Doha. It was a large school with nearly 2000 pupils on roll. I love working with secondary school pupils because every day brings something new, and they never fail to make me laugh.

  • Ben Karamyar

    Mathematics Teacher

    Ben Karamyar

    I graduated with a first class honours degree in Mathematics and Statistics from Kingston University London, where I chose an optional final year module involving Education, Theory and Practice. This covered the theoretical aspects of teaching, and involved enlightening placements across a variety of secondary schools throughout London. To further pursue my passion for teaching, I went on to complete my PGCE year, where my second work placement was based at an outstanding-rated school in Richmond. Having had a wonderful experience, I was offered a permanent job to stay on at the school, and after completing my NQT year successfully, I became a fully qualified secondary Mathematics teacher.

    Megan Tyre

    Humanities Teacher

    Megan Tyre

    I studied at Newcastle University and gained a BA Honours in Geography and Sociology. During my degree, I completed a placement year where I worked at an international school in Saudi Arabia, as well as a recruitment company in Amsterdam. My decision to train as a teacher was solidified during my time in Saudi Arabia. I enjoyed working with young people from many different cultures and backgrounds and helping them to achieve their best, both in and out of lessons.

    After completing my degree, I moved to Leeds to start my teacher training year, when I worked at two schools; one in Bradford and another in Leeds. For the last few months I have been working at a school on Ascension Island teaching Geography to the secondary pupils.

    Athya Ansari

    Science Teacher, Deputy IMYC Coordinator

    Athya Ansari

    I am a mature, creative person, used to working under pressure, both on my own initiative and in a team.  I have a calm personality which enables me to build strong relationships with people, building an atmosphere of mutual trust. When it comes to involvement with other people, I am very sociable and make people feel at ease.  Stimulating, providing knowledge and enhancing pupil’s learning is second nature. My hobbies include art and crafts, sewing (am very proud of my Singer machine!), reading and travelling. I also love pets and plan to adapt a cat or a dog on my arrival to Qatar. I have 3 grown up children, all pursuing different careers, one of them even wants to follow in my footsteps to be a Teacher. They are well grounded and independent.

    Gurav Singh Sidhu

    Mathematics Lead Teacher

    Gurav Singh Sidhu

    Having completed a PGCE in Mathematics from Nottingham University in 2010 I have worked as a Mathematics teacher and Lead Practitioner in Mathematics at secondary schools in and around Leicestershire. I have taught at all secondary key stages and am I equally experienced teaching year 7 mathematicians as I am at teaching year 13 mathematicians. During my time as a teacher, I have always taken a keen interest in extra-curricular activities and have been lucky enough to have taken students on expeditions to Peru and Tanzania. As well as this, I have also been a Duke of Edinburgh leader for the Bronze and Silver Awards. I would like to think of myself of a considerate and patient person; who always listens and treats everyone equally and with respect. Having been a teacher for nearly 10 years I would consider myself to have invaluable experience which I look forward to sharing with everyone at NAISAK. I have always enjoyed teaching and learning about different cultures, therefore when the opportunity to teach in Qatar arose it was too difficult to turn down.
