    a quite a...

    He was a quite a genius.
    I had it for a quite a long time.

    Do these sentences sound fine to native ears? Thanks a lot.

    Re: a quite a...

    I am not a teacher. But you do not need "a" twice.

    Use this:

    He was quite a genius. (or ...quite the genius)
    I had it for quite a long time
