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 are in bold.

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.

Excellent German Instructor

Malia is an excellent instructor. She is patient, clear with her explanations, and gives many useful suggestions ! This was the first class, and I plan to continue. She understands my need for "conversation practice" and encouraged me to talk.
