Hello! Swahili learners, I am your teacher Ivanna and I really enjoy teaching, reading, writing, drawing and all various forms of art. I love having fun even when learning in a classroom. I love being by myself and meditating, it gives me this peaceful and calming feeling. I enjoy learning about traditional cultures from across the world, and my mouth is always left hanging when I see the very many similarities we have. This is exactly the reason I love online teaching, I get to met people from different cultures. If you would like to know anything about African tribes and their cultures I am the one for you 😂, we can probably discuss it using an African language(Swahili).
Me as a Teacher
I am a fun and friendly teacher, do not be shy of making mistakes. It is part of us as human beings, I have been teaching for 4 years now and I love making students fall in love with studies. For so long studies have been portrayed to be dull and boring which is false, everything can be interesting and fun to do. I am a University of Nairobi graduate and an English and Swahili teacher here in Kenya.
My lessons & teaching style
NO BORING CLASSES PLEASE!. This will forever be my slogan, I personally cannot entertain a boring class, my mind would wander and I would lose interest in what I'm learning. My classes are tailored to the specific student I am teaching, however, my main aim is to always make classes fun, interesting and entertaining for my students.

Ivanna is so nice! She had an introductory lesson plan ready for our first class, but she had no problems answering any questions that I had even if they were not on topic. I'm looking forward to our next lesson!
