About this tutor

My greatest passion in life is teaching and learning from my students. I was born and raised in Kenya and experienced great success due to amazing teachers. As this is the foundation of my commitment to assisting my students to grow their abilities and interpersonal skills. I recently completed my postgraduate degree in Economics, rounding out my undergraduate in English, Mathematical Economics and Psychology as subjects. I have been tutoring for the past 5 years. I have experience in tutoring kids from 5-17years assisting them with homework, spelling and their conventional skills. As well as adults 18+yrs old with the essay construction, conversational skills and public speaking.

I charge $ 12-15 per session

I tutor students at primary, secondary and university levels and any adults who would be interested in improving their skills as well.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I normally follow this process with new students:

- Introduction and icebreaker game (Names, age, likes and dislikes).

- Creating with the student a safe space where they feel comfortable to ask questions and feel they are being listened to.

-Establishing house rules to be followed by both tutor and student i.e punctuality and times to meet for sessions.

-Tackle the topic of the day.

- Recap, QnA and rewards period after the coursework of the day is completed.

-Conclusion and any recommendations to incorporate into our next session.

How did you get started teaching?

In High school I participated in Community Engagement where we walked two kilometres to a less privileged primary school and offered after school tutoring services to the children especially those seating for their final exam that year. Helping them get good grades that allowed them to qualify for secondary school inspired me to take up tutoring even as I attended university. I love to assist others  grow and achieve their dreams.

I understand that Covid-19 has its negative side effects but it also has a positive side where people have come together all over the world to support each other breaking previously set barriers and uniting individuals into a community.

Pick a tutor with experience in the subject and in dealing with students from diverse backgrounds. Also a tutor that is aseas to learn from the student as the student is enthusiastic to learn from the tutor.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should feel free to ask questions where they find difficulty either with the work we cover during our sessions or work their cover at school. It is our responsibility as tutors to create that safe space where the student feels free enough to express themselves and to feel listened to.
