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.
Knowledgeable, patient and fun
Malia is wunderbar! She is patient, even when I am struggling to get out a sentence in German and is a great conduit for conversations. She pays rapt attention when I'm speaking and always asks great probing follow-up questions to encourage dialogue in German. She speaks in a way I can understand, and is never patronizing. I feel I have made great progress with her as my tutor. Can't recommend enough!Thomas, 37 lessons with Malia

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.Diane, 96 lessons with Malia
The perfect tutor!!!
Since Malia is from Germany, her command of the German language and its nuances is amazing! I even learned a German idiom in my session. Additionally, her teaching style is student focused on the goals one has; I asked for help with correcting my German writing. I had quite a bit, but she wasted no time in the session and she went over her corrections to ensure my understanding. She also was highly personable; the perfect tutor. She will be my pick when I seek Wyzant again!Melody, 26 lessons with Malia
very flexible and understanding
My daughter feels she is learning far more German with Malia than she did in school. She also appreciates her sense of humor and helpfulness.David, 17 lessons with Malia
