Mustafa Siddiqui

Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream (LTA)
Institute for the Study of University Pedagogy

Mustafa’s educational journey is rooted in excellence, having earned a Ph.D. in English, an M.A. in English Language Teaching, and a B.A. (Hons.) in English, all from the long-established Aligarh Muslim University, India. In addition, he possesses academic certifications, which include the University of Cambridge’s CELTA. In the past fifteen years, he has taught in multiple countries, including India, England, Saudi Arabia, and Canada. Mustafa’s commitment to excellence is underscored by his notable achievement—a university gold medal during his graduate studies.

Like some student writers, Mustafa approached writing with reluctance during his undergrad days. However, it was during his doctoral studies that he unlocked the secrets and developed a deep affection for the art of academic writing. Besides researching academic writing, Mustafa strives to find ways to make teaching and learning enjoyable. Two other areas of his research interest are translation studies and Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL).

When he is not teaching, you will find him swinging his kids, chasing soccer balls, smashing birdies in badminton, or reading student essays, nurturing the development of budding writers.
