Lesson

I have been teaching French for several years. I have taught a lot of students at different levels. I lived and studied in Cuba for 10 years and therefore Spanish is my second language, my mother language being English. I have also had the opportunity of working in some neighboring Francophone West African Countries as a teacher, lecturer and administrator in educational institutions ranging from Tertiary to Primary thereby further developing my ability to nurture, mentor and build the capacity of people with varied backgrounds and needs.

I have also taught French in the America International School of Lagos and currently teaching Spanish in the Heritage House School in Victoria Island Lagos.


I am a patient tutor whose style hinges on:

1. Getting to know the student

2. Teaching at a pace that is most comfortable for the learner

Once these basics are clear to me, we (the student and I) agree on the ground rules. These will generally be grounded on creating a learning experience that will be enjoyable for the student. As a general rule, and in consonance with my believe that the learning process should also mimic practical life in which events never play out in the same manner, I will from time to time vary the style of instruction. This also serves the purpose of renewing the discovery instinct and curiosity of the student.

The ultimate object for me, is to provide the best possible learning experience and outcomes for the teacher and the student alike.
