*Tale of a private lesson teacher*


[b]Episode 1



Passing out parade has come and gone, I will
definitely miss my
friends, my PPA, my environment in ota, a lot of
thoughts were
running through my mind as I was packing and
arranging my loads. I begin to ask myself, “after
service year
then what next?”.
I had tried to apply for jobs during my service
year but I couldn’t
get a befitting job. My friends that were born
with a silver spoon
had jobs waiting for them at home, “Which kind
wahala be this?”,
I picked my bag, board a bus to akure. On getting
home, my
family and neighbours welcomed me, it was as if
a white man
came on a visit. People are asking me questions,
some were
greeting, some were asking for what I brought.
As days rolled by, I begin to search for what to
do, I moved round
the town to see if I could get a job somewhere.
One day while I was passing by on the 3rd
street, I saw a woman
coming out of a mighty duplex, the house was
painted white,.
She was pasting a notice on her gate as I was
passing by. I
moved closer to see the what she was pasting,
and on it I saw ”
A home lesson teacher wanted URGENTLY”.
Chaiii, I ignored at first and moved on. After
walking about 8
steps. I stopped and think. ***** why I go refuse
this job na?,
dem be rich people ooo, so dem fit pay.*****, I
stopped thinking, I
went back the house, I knocked on the gate and
the gateman
ushered me in. the gateman took me to the the
door entrance,
called out the woman and left,
ME: good afternoon ma
MADAM: good afternoon young man, how can I
help you?
ME: I saw you pasting a notice the other time
and I decided to
apply.
MADAM: you mean the home tutor job?
ME: Yes
MADAM: hope u passed your WAEC? And how
was the result?.
ME: *****smiled*****, yes man I do.
MADAM: but I will prefer a graduate because my
first daughter
wants to write jamb and post jamb, so a
graduate will do better,
ME: *****i looked at myself and thought, “chaiiii,
small stature na
bad thing oooo, se I no look like graduate
ni?”***** smiled, I’m a
graduate ma.
MADAM: really?, oooohh, pls I am so sorry for
the
embarrassment, so sorry please, u look very
young, please come
in please.
************she ushered me into the living
room************
The interior of the room is a nice one, a colourful
design and
furnitures. I sat on the chair and she sat down
opposite to me.
MADAM: I’m sorry for the other time
ME: its not a problem ma
MaDAM: which state are you from?
ME: edo
MADAM: how old are you.
ME: ****felt embarrassed*** 23
MADAM: 23? Then what age did you graduate?
ME: 21 Ma
MADAM: ***smiled*** u must be a genius, I like
that. So let’s get
to business. My first daughter janet is 19, she
failed her last
jamb attempt, so she is writing another one, so u
will teach her
physics, chemistry and math, less I forget.
What’s your course?
ME: chemistry Ma
MaDAM: then you should be able to do well then,
ME: ok ma, ***i looked at the photo on the wall
directly in front of
me, its of a very pretty young lady, she is fair
and has a big burst.
This must be janet, “chaiiiii, omo see bobby****
MADAM: I also have a son, 12 in jss3, u will be
teaching him
mathematics.
Me: ok ma.
MADAM: ********called someone by the name
“sikira”. Sikira!!! ,
bring a bottle of coke for me with a glass
cup******.A young girl appeared from the
kitchen, her dressing
shows that she must be the house maid. She is
fair too but not up
to janet, she must be in her early 20′s I guess,
she has
this local inbuilt beauty, a nice dimple and a an
average sized
bosoms. She served the coke and turned back.
Chaiiiiiiii, omo
see a$$$$$$.
Its that type of mercy johnson’s. I sipped the
coke and continues
the discussion.
MADAM: that is my house maid, no tempt her
with your fine boy
look oooooo,
ME: ok ma.
Madam: just kidding. So how much are you
charging me?
ME: *****thought for a while, viewed the look of
the house, the
cars I saw outside***** 30k ma.
MADAM: heeeeeeeee, when I’m not employing
you to train her for
cambridge. I will pay you 20k per month for the 2
children.
ME: ok ma
MADAM: let me give you a little rule. Don’t go
beyond academics
with my daughter, I think you understand what I
meant?. If you
do, I will send hired killer to kill you
ME: ok ma, *******so this woman is only
concerned about her
daughter’s yansh, what about sikira?*****. Sorry
ma, can I ask a
question?
Madam: go ahead.
ME: please are the children around?! I want to
introduce myself
to them****for my mind, I wan see how janet
looks like in
reality****.
MaDAM: janet went to a friend’s birthday party,
gideon my son is
sleeping inside. Maybe when you resume lesson,
you will know
them
ME: thanks ma. One more thing please, I wish to
meet daddy too.
MADAM: laughs, daddy is not in nigeria,.
Me: ok ma, let me take my leave, I will resume
on monday. I
exchanged number with madam, stood up and
about to leave
when sikira came out to pick the bottle. She
looked into my eyes
and released a cute smile, her dimple made a
hole. I smiled back
at her too. I dashed out of the compound. As I
stood infront of the
gate, a cab dropped a young girl infront the
house. I recognised
the face as the same thing I saw on the picture,
this must be
janet. I said to her “HI”. She just ignored, passed
by and knock on
the gate which the gateman later opened. I said
to my self.
Chaiiiii, why this girl come rude and dey arrogant
like this na?... .
