We had the privilege to learn about Rumaylah’s journey, her dedication to teaching, and how Tutopiya has enriched her educational experience.
The Journey Begins
Rumaylah currently wears multiple hats at her school. She serves as the Sectional Head for the Senior Section, the Head of the Science Department, and a Teacher of Science at an International School. Her path to becoming an educator was guided by a deep-seated passion for teaching. As she puts it, “I believe that teachers are born and not made. I have a passion for teaching and would like to inculcate a positive impact on children’s lives.”
Inspiration and Adaptation
The world was thrown into a frenzy when the pandemic struck, and the education system had to adapt quickly to the virtual realm. Rumaylah, like many other teachers, found herself facing the challenges of online teaching. However, her dedication and resilience prevailed. She recalls, “Online teaching was not an easy task at first, but as all of us teachers had to transition during the lockdown, it took us not more than 48 hours to master it.”
It was during this transition that she discovered Tutopiya, an online learning and teaching platform that quickly captured her heart. She explains, “Tutopiya was the best learning and teaching online platform that I came across, and there was no turning back. The rest is history.”
Transforming Lives, One Student at a Time
Rumaylah’s dedication to teaching is evident in her commitment to nurturing her students’ growth. She believes in making learning engaging and memorable. She states, “I know that children only remember what interests them and not all that we want them to remember. Therefore, I teach in a manner that interests them to want to remember.”
But it’s not just about sharing knowledge; it’s also about inspiring and motivating students. Rumaylah emphasizes the importance of guidance, motivation, and constructive criticism in building students’ self-confidence. She encourages her students to do their best, emphasizing that success is not measured solely by grades. “A C/D grade is fine, seriously it is as long as it was the best that they could do. Inspire them to leave no room for regrets,” she says.

Throughout her journey, Rumaylah has honed her teaching skills and developed qualities that make her an effective educator. Planning and preparation are at the top of her list, and she believes that each student is unique and requires tailored support. She stresses the importance of staying up-to-date and adaptable, and she emphasizes focus and strong work ethics as keys to unlocking success.
A Never-Ending Passion
When asked how she maintains her passion and motivation year after year, Rumaylah shares a powerful belief: “A teacher’s value does not decrease just because someone doesn’t know to see their worth.” She recognizes that the right environment can truly value and nurture teachers, sustaining their enthusiasm.
