About Malice

I have over 20 years of varied experience in the field of education. I have taught, tutored, and performed administrative duties in Miami, New York, and Rio de Janeiro in public and private schools, with students ranging from 1 year to adulthood. I also have experience with Special, ESOL, and online education.

I enjoy tutoring because I love to give students extra or new techniques that can help them learn and achieve their learning goals. With my varied experience and expertise, I can provide a variety of hands-on, practical, and proven techniques for students to learn the subject material and succeed independently.

I excelled in grammar throughout my educational career and know how to break concepts down into smaller understandable ideas.

I have numerous hands on techniques that I have used throughout my teaching and tutoring career.

I have taught students how to read before age 5 with proficiency. I use hands on materials, online resources, and I also teach phonics that can be applied independently.

Contact me so you can learn useful techniques that can help with your class work, homework, and test taking.


Testimonial
Malice D. helped my son Nick S. learn to read. My son had been struggling with reading throughout Kindergarten. When Malice D. worked with him, he was reading sentences on the first day of tutoring. This brought tears to my eyes because I had never heard him read before then. At night when I asked my son to read, he would not try to avoid reading like before. Instead was was excited to read, and was proud of himself. Malice D. was patient and taught my son how to read simple words using phonics rules. After four lessons, Nick was reading books with sentences of words from different word families. I am very thankful that my son had tutoring with Malice D. because she brought him up to a first grade reading level in a short time. I highly recommend Malice D. as a tutor if your child struggles with reading.
