I am Nigerian and British. I grew up speaking Igbo and loving our culture and worried that if major investments are not made to keep the Culture alive then it will become extinct. I currently live in London and can see the struggle of parents to achieve teaching their children the language. I started to teach out of passion. My first student is my daughter and we use the walk to school time to revise the language. She is getting confident to teach her friends and teachers any new word she learns.
I have worked at various levels in the private and public sector but now focused on building a platform that promotes the African culture. My first task is to focus on my native language Igbo.
I am enjoying the impact and feedback from my students and parents. I am internally motivated, resilient and driven. I make my class fun, interactive, relaxed creating a home setting so students are comfortable to make mistakes and correct them. I use stories to paint pictures of our culture. I also invite student to share experiences and this forms conversations for all to join in. I am flexible and vary teaching to suit the learner. I take student starting from 13 years old. My class size is growing and my students have voted me the best teacher.
