Hi! 🖐🏾 My name is Joy. I am a Swahili tutor and photographer from Mombasa, Kenya.
I love to travel, watch films and learn about new cultures.
✔️ I am very detailed oriented and passionate about language learning. I believe that this, coupled with my desire to exchange cultural experiences will make me the perfect tutor for you!
Me as a Teacher
Because of my previous experience as a tutor, I know that the hardest thing about learning a new subject is the preparation for it. It's difficult to know what you don't know.
I am very organized and bring this quality to my teaching. As well as being fun and interactive my lessons are all well planned out and allow for my students to climb up the Swahili language ladder and visually track their progress.
My lessons & teaching style
1. 📕 Swahili 101- a 17 step beginner to proficient Swahili grammar course.
2. 📗 Conversational Practice- An interactive roleplaying class that focuses on Swahili speaking. Before class, I will provide the students with reading material that would aid in the lesson for example, a document explaining the basic Swahili tenses and a menu to simulate ordering from a restaurant.

Joy is a great tutor. She came prepared to my first lesson with organized and helpful materials, and she adjusted the materials in real time to fit my needs. I'm excited to continue learning with her!

I've been taking Swahili lessons with Joy for one month and am really enjoying it. Joy is always prepared with a lesson plan and exercises. She is flexible with the plan and improvises new exercises and questions throughout so that I can really understand the concepts. She's a communicative and reliable tutor.
