    Teaching Approach

    I believe that the most effective way to improve language skills is through practice. If the goal of a student is to be able to effectively communicate while traveling, having the confidence to speak is essential. I prioritize conversation over in depth writing and reading as the skill is often lost in language classes.

    Program Description

    I prefer smaller group settings to maximize the attention given to each student. I like to mix up lessons ranging from basic sentence comprehension , verbal practice of greeting and basic conversation, and more in depth grammar and writing skills. The more talking the better!

    Teaching Experience

    I am a community-bas ed health teacher in Tanzania. I am seeking to teach others Swahili once back in Seattle since gaining significant experience with the language this past year.

    Teacher Training

    I am currently employed by the U.S. Peace Corps living in a rural village in Tanzania. I am teaching community-bas ed health to those around me in Swahili.
    Pri or to Tanzania, I graduated from George Washington University with a Bachelor of Sociology.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is your teaching schedule?
    If seeking online tutoring, I am available most days per week in the evenings. If seeking in-person tutoring, I am located in the Seattle area and am willing to organize preferred times. I am mainly available in the evenings and weekends and the schedule can be constructed between student and teacher.
    Wha t is your payment policy?
    I accept cash payment after lessons as well as venmo or paypal. If checks are preferred, this can be arranged for in person lessons. If a student cancels within 24 hours of an in-person lesson, an extra $10 will be added to the lesson fee. For online tutoring, $10 will be charged after 3 cancellations .
    What other relevant experience makes you a more effective teacher?
    Pri or to moving to my rural village, I was in 10 weeks of intensive Swahili learning classes. After 10 weeks, I gained a very firm grip on the language which only improved over time. I understand the curriculum needed for basic conversation in a short period of time. This coupled with my language proficiency now results in a unqiue and helpful learning experience.

    Cost of Lessons

    For one on one lessons, I charge $50 per hour.
