Over the years, I've tutored Yemeni immigrants in Brooklyn and international students at Seattle Central Community College, interned for the Tunisian Ministry of Education as a language assistant, taught several classrooms of Japanese high school students, and given many one-on-one lessons to both children and adults.

I began teaching English over 10 years ago when I was a freshman in college. A graduate of Barnard College in New York, I have a post-bac certificate in TESOL. Over the years, I've tutored Yemeni immigrants in Brooklyn and international students at Seattle Central Community College, interned for the Tunisian Ministry of Education as a language assistant, taught several classrooms of Japanese high school students, and given many one-on-one lessons to both children and adults. I love having students of all ages and backgrounds and tailoring my teaching to each student's needs.

In addition to teaching locally here in Seattle, I give online lessons to clients from various global companies. If you're interested in online lessons, don't hesitate to inquire. Where there's a will, there's a way!

Very patient!

Munya has tutored my daughter since 2014 when we just moved to Seattle and my daughter spoke little English. My daughter was 9 years old then. Munya has been very patient, warm and always well prepared for her lessons. My daughter felt relaxed and comfortable with her. She made sure my daughter fully engaged in the lessons by asking questions, having conversations, reading and doing other activities together. And she tailored her lessons to meet her student’s developing needs by sending audio stories in advance and asking my daughter to retell in the lessons; which was very helpful with her verbal expression. My daughter has made great progress in her English and we appreciate Munya’s help!

She is a great teacher for kids to improve English

Munya teaches us useful Vocabulary, phrase verbs, Grammar, and a lot of English expressions and so on. We can find what we learned in the classes at a real situation a lot.

Great tutor warmly recommended

My first language is French. Munya helped me to improve my English conversation. She is patient, easy to understand, and gives relevant information and exercises to practice what we learn with her.

Bianca, 5 lessons with Munya

Excellent Tutor

Munya was an excellent tutor. She was always very well prepared before our lessons so she would arrived with some stuff and material to work on. She was adjusting her teaching to the needs of her student and she cared a lot about the learning of her student. She was flexible in her schedule. She brought me a lot of resources (podcast to listen, online website, homework, newspaper), which were very helpful. She taught me a lot on the ''American slang'', on idioms, and new vocabulary. She has been a very good tutor for me. Thanks.
