My name is Yvan and I am one of the French teachers at Safa Community School. I joined SCS in 2022 and I love working here.
I am originally from Mauritius and I lived in London for 17 years before moving to the UAE. I also lived and studied in Spain for a year while I was on Erasmus. I studied Business management and Spanish at Roehampton University and completed my PGCE as an MFL specialist at Greenwich University. I have taught French and Spanish for 10 years. I worked for 6 years in London before deciding to move to Abu Dhabi where I worked for 2 years. There, I taught French and Business studies. In my spare time, I like spending time with my children, travelling, playing sport in particular table table.
I have been teaching French and Spanish since 2013. I started my career in London where I taught for 6 years before moving to the UAE. I spent the first two years in Abu Dhabi where I taught French and Business Studies. I then moved to Safa and this is the best decision I have made in my career so far. Furthermore, I am also an examiner with Edexcel for speaking.
