No, Someone using Penetration testing tools (Kali Linux) that know's what they are doing can still hack your network. Giving them free access to a guest network is not going to solve the problem of them hacking your wifi. If the are not supposed to be connecting to your wireless then report them to the authorities. 


If you are only trying to separate yourself from the other person and you have to share your internet connection with them look into WIFI routers that support VLAN's. Again if they know how to use penetration tools, they can still hack your Wifi even if they have their own connection.

I support that Mikrotik, if you set it up correctly and update it frequently, I doubt that person has access to unknown vulnerabilities for RouterOS... ;-)
