Tessy Thomas


Emirates Schools Establishment

I, Tessy Thomas, with over 13 years of experience teaching English across various curriculums, am confident in my ability to contribute to the success of the students and school community. I have developed a deep understanding of different teaching methodologies, curriculum development, and assessment techniques. I have also honed my classroom management skills and fostered a positive learning environment. As a result, I have helped students achieve their academic goals and inspired a love for the English language. I have a solid understanding of the structure and rules of the English language, including grammar, syntax, and vocabulary. We work as a team to help students develop critical thinking skills such as analyzing, making connections, and evaluating results. We are committed to ongoing professional development and staying up to date on the field's latest trends and research. We visit the GESS conference every year in Dubai and have benefitted by implementing the innovative ideas presented at the conference.

The Challenges of Advanced Stream Subjects on the Academic Journey of Advanced Stream Students

The research paper aims to identify the challenges of advanced stream subjects faced by students at Al Shefaa’ Bint Abdullah Girl’s School (Cycle 3, Emirati School). This research will use quantitative and qualitative methods to examine the influence that advanced stream subjects have on student academic achievement. The analysis using the survey tools leads us to the inference that time management, the language barrier, and the depth of the scientific subjects are the main challenges from the student’s perspective. Based on the analysis, we have suggested solutions to overcome these challenges that the students faced. Those suggestions were implemented successfully in the school and found positive changes.
