This is how 34 referees rated Safiya:
I love networking, which inspired me to study French. My native country of Nigeria borders four Francophone countries, and I learned the language at an Alliance Francaise Center there. I would describe myself as a very patient instructor and I encourage students to actively participate in my lessons as opposed to just taking notes. I can help with multiple levels of French.
I graduated from both Bayero University Kano in Nigeria and Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania. I tutored for some time before emigrating to the United States and was privileged to work with multiple age groups. I also volunteered as a French tutor at the Shippensburg University learning center, an experience that helped me develop new teaching strategies.
I try to create a welcoming learning environment where students don't have to worry about using the wrong verb tense or mispronouncing a word. If students feel comfortable working with me, I believe that they'll see better results.
