Our Story

https://pixabay.com/en/giraffes-south-africa-safari-africa-382399/Our story starts in Africa, with a small group of American parents who wanted to support their children’s education needs while living overseas.  As expats, their kids attended schools with varying curricula and missed out on fun American programs like U.S. History and Civics. Some students had critical gaps in their Math and English skills due to frequent moves or abrupt evacuations. Parents of Gifted or Special Needs students found that their overseas school could not accommodate their child’s learning needs. Other students just needed a little extra support repatriating to the U.S. school system after being abroad for a decade or more.

We created Twiga Tutors to help! Our certified American teachers make learning Math, English, Science and US History build your child’s skills in a fun and engaging way. Our aim is to develop personalized and rewarding programs for students living anywhere. We specialize in filling gaps for globally mobile kids who frequently change countries, schools, hemispheres or curricula.

What’s with the giraffes?  Twiga means giraffe in Swahili and connects us with the continent where our company began. The giraffes also symbolize our commitment to bringing an amazing education to kids anywhere, even the most exotic places on earth.
