Certified English and Swahili teacher with TEFL certificate

Habari yako[Hey], My name is Caroline Ndegwa from Nairobi, Kenya. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management with a specialization in procurement. I speak English and Swahili fluently both of which are the national languages in my home country. I can also speak in Kikuyu which is my ethnic language but I’m not as fluent. I love traveling, meeting new people, learning new languages and exploring new cultures. I also get a real personal sense of fulfillment when I help my students achieve their goals.
Me as a Teacher
During my campus years, I volunteered to teach at my local kindergarten school where I gained practical experience in teaching. Through my teaching experience there, I got to understand the impact of being creative, flexible and that of having a fun class. I also got to learn through my students that everyone has their own strengths and struggles and if your patient with them they will improve and succeed. My Business Management degree also helps me assist with business and procurement related assignments. For those interested in learning Swahili, I am also willing to help you understand the language, how to converse in it and if interested the culture of its native speakers.
My lessons & teaching style
My teaching strategy is that during my first lesson, I first conduct an initial discovery session to better understand what my students’ goals or expectation are through my class. Based out of this, we tailor a curriculum that meets the needs of the individual student. I find out whether the students’ needs are to understand a language, learn how to converse in the language and improve on their pronunciation or maybe they have an assignment that they need assistance with. From there, I know what the priorities are and I can tutor the relevant issue addressed and improve on the student’s weaker area. I teach conversation, pronunciation and business related topics.

Another great educational lesson and memorable learning experience with Caroline. She always tests my learning and mental capacity to push me to improve. I can feel her genuine personality to help the student. I wish there are many teachers like her over here. She makes me feel comfortable by having a fun interactive class. She creates a unique learning environment where I have to go outside the box to be learn aspects about the Swahili language.
