I like traveling✈️, sightseeing and meeting with people from different backgrounds. For 5 years I worked as a mountain guide and through this experience I enjoyed meeting people from around the world. I had the opportunity to teach them about the fauna and flora of the highest mountain in Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro, which I have climbed more than 20 times. I also enjoyed working as a Safari guide in the beautiful natural parks of Tanzania. Currently, I live in Ghana located in west Africa. I love teaching and sharing with people what I know.
Me as a Teacher
I am a TESOL Certified English Tutor with over 10 years of experience teaching. What would you do if you came face to face with a leopard 🦁🐆? I can tell you.... because it happened to me. I would love to share my experiences as a safari guide and mountaineer while practicing your conversational Swahili or English. I can't wait to hear more about you. Talk with you soon.
My lessons & teaching style
My teaching style is friendly and conversational. I focus more on speaking and grammar. I believe that the more a student gets to practice the more confident he/she becomes.

Mwalimu Jacob is an exceptional teacher. He is very patient and encouraging. Moreover our lessons are always fun, tunacheka sana. He always makes sure that we speak only Swahili, which has helped me a lot towards my language progress. Although we have never met face to face he has become a good friend and I always look forward to meeting him online. Asante sana kaka yangu.

Jacob ni mwalimu mzuri! I have really enjoyed taking my Kiswahili lessons with Jacob. He takes into consideration goals that I have for my language learning and is well-organized, reliable, and supportive. I really appreciate how patient he is with me as I work through improving my pronunciations & grammar. If you looking to take Kiswahili lessons with a knowledgeable, reassuring (and entertaining!) teacher, I absolutely recommend Jacob! Asante sana kwa masomo
