À propos de moi

Aloha! My name is Malia and I'm a native English tutor from the United States. I was born and raised in the beautiful islands of Hawaii, but I've traveled all over the world (40 countries and counting) and I've studied many languages during my travels, including Japanese, French, Spanish and Turkish.

I received my CELTA certificate to teach English to adults and I've taught in language schools, private schools and universities, as well as individual students and executives looking to improve their general or business English. In the business world, I have personal experience working in a variety of fields: retail sales and management, operations, human resources, accounting, legal, communications/PR and as an Executive Assistant to the CEO of a nonprofit.

I specialize in conversation classes to improve your fluency and expand your vocabulary. The best way to learn a language is through topics that are engaging and fun so we will often work from material relating to your interests or hobbies, emails or situations from your work, role plays you might encounter traveling, videos like TED Talks, or from topics in the news. If you've got a job interview or work presentation coming up, I'm happy to help you prepare and practice for it. Although you will get some corrections during class, I find that it's usually best to focus on error correction at the end of a session, so that it doesn't hinder your fluency. My goal is to help you to become confident and comfortable using English in your everyday life.

I'm looking forward to meeting you! =)
