Personal Description:

I am a TEFL certified tutor with over 10 years experience of teaching both English and Swahili to individuals of all language levels. I am a native Swahili speaker from Tanzania with strong links to and knowledge of Kenya as well. I love learning new languages, I have higher-basic level knowledge of French and Korean and I also know some basic Japanese and Thai. Besides being a tutor, I am also a freelance language service provider running my own consulting business and I have worked with agencies, different institutions, individuals etc in that capacity.

***I am usually unavailable between Friday evening & Saturday evening as I observe the Sabbath. Should you contact me during those times, your patience will be highly appreciated and I will get back to you before Saturday ends***

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching part time since 2004 but made it a full time job in 2012. So far I have taught mainly adults and a few younger students and I have experience of teaching at any level. My roster of current and former students is quite widespread and includes countries like the UK, France, Libya, Tanzania, S.Korea, Greece, Turkey, USA, Saudi Arabia etc

Teaching Approach:

I usually talk to the students to get a feel of their level of knowledge and also to just figure out their personalities so as to know how to create and deliver my lessons. I also ask for their opinion especially for those with experience of learning other languages as they tend to have an idea of what works for them. Materials I use include flash cards (which are one of the best ways to learn and remember new things), short stories and pictures which make lessons fun but very easy to remember at the same time. For Swahili lessons, I create free to download mp3 audio recordings for my students' supplementary purposes as well as pronunciation practice. This I usually alternate with regular homework as well as tests and pop quizzes to ensure the student is keeping up.
