Certified English and Swahili teacher with TEFL certificate

Hi, I am Teacher Mary. I started teaching English nine months ago and I love meeting people from around the world. I am a very helpful, bubbly and kind teacher. I teach students who are seeking to relocate, go on holiday or even learn the language for leisure. I enjoy listening and helping students achieve their goals. I am a native English and Swahili Speaker.
I love reading fashion magazines, swimming, fishing, cooking and travelling. I love interacting with others and learning about different cultures.I plan all my students lessons before the class and I will discuss them with my student to make possible edits and agree on the lesson plan.
Me as a Teacher
I have been teaching English as a private tutor for the past 2 years. Through my teaching experience I also learnt that every student's needs and struggles are different. I enjoyed sharing knowledge with my students and watching them gain confidence in holding conversations in English and in their reading and writing was very fulfilling. Explaining ideas in ways that make them easier to understand is something that I delight in.
My lessons & teaching style
I would describe my teaching style as kind, fun and patient. My goal as a teacher is to meet the requests of the students and understand what they aim to achieve so the the lessons are customized to the student's concerns. I teach pronunciations, engineering terminology, grammar and will focus on conversational skills. I do not give homework and I normally do not prepare for lessons.
