Meet the founder

Hi, I'm Mohammed


I’m a qualified professional language teacher and the Founder of Heedheh. I’ve taught English for over 15 years in schools and universities offline and online. And, I’ve also been teaching Somali online for a number of years to countless students from the USA, Canada, UK, Norway, Hungary, Brazil, and Saudi Arabia.
Most Somali language learners struggle with learning Somali. They feel afraid to speak. I help them communicate with courage so they can connect deeper with their loved ones and their Somali heritage.
