  • Filder Olana
    Filder Olana Mauritius As an experienced teacher, my enthusiasm emerged in studying psychology as a basic subject when i qualified to become a teacher 10 years back. I have interacted and taught learners with different abilities and during my indoor and outdoor observations, i was greatly persuaded to manifest my career in knowing much about the human minds and behavior so as to apply the best methodology and design in teaching. 2016-04-11 13:04:58
