About Malia

I would like to help you learn the wonderful German language! I'm from a small town in Nordrhein-Westphalia but grew up bilingual, speaking German and English. I have lived in the U.S. for the past eleven years. I have studied and majored in German and Global Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. I would happily work with both beginners and more advanced students. I can help you study for school or exams and prepare you to take German SATs. Further, I can help you better your German writing skills and assist you in editing essays and papers. I have work experience as a teaching assistant in a college-level German course, where I worked one on one with students as well as reviewed and graded their assignments, as well as received a TESOL certificate. Beyond that, I have a passion for the language and culture and would like to pass that on to fellow German students.

Further, I have a good amount of writing experience and a TESOL certificate and am able to help ESL students or students looking for assistance with reading and writing skills.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Writing

I am a published author. I have a significant amount of experience writing both fiction and academic work. Currently, I am studying English Literature, which further enhances to my understanding of the English language and its usage.
