Khadijah is a graduate of the Department of English Language and Literature in the Faculty of Arts at Ain Shams University. Khadijah has taught intensive English, academic research writing, exam preparation courses and more, using a broad range of curricula. Throughout her professional career, Khadijah has been keen to equip herself with related international qualifications, e.g. she acquired her Cambridge ESOL Level 5 and 7 Certificates in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. She has also received several academic training courses in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) specialisms, e.g. University of Oregon's Developing EFL Literacy Through Project-Based Learning, and IDP's IELTS Teacher Training course. Khadijah is nationally certified from the Faculty of Education at Ain Shams University.
In her pursuit to find answers to questions about educational and academic challenges facing Egypt, Khadijah aspired to developing expertise in education as an academic discipline. Specialising in Comparative and International Education helped her navigate worldwide educational systems, comparing the Egyptian to the regional and international in the light of social and cultural contexts. Her MA focused on the Spanish and Malaysian education systems and explored solutions that enabled enrichment of cultural diversity in Egypt through enhanced education. Khadijah’s PhD study is on Australian and Brazilian social, cultural, and educational contexts which will help her examine, explore and explain insights into and an understanding of local cultures forming the Egyptian identity through the lens of academic and educational facets.
