Swahili Tutor

I have been an online Swahili tutor for many years now. I am native Swahili speaker from Mombasa, Kenya. After graduating in BS Biology, i started working for American companies like Sprint, Assurance wireless, Kmart, Sears and Microsoft. 

I am a very enthusiastic and hardworking teacher full of humor. I like to make my students feel special and value to their lessons. I have been teaching students Swahili from around the Globe who appreciated my lessons . If Swahili is what you are looking to learn or speak, you have found the ideal course for your training. Please leave me any feedback for my courses. Karibuni.
