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 (38 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. I specialize in conversation classes, business English, and test prep, including IELTS. 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 enjoy tailoring my sessions to the needs of my learners and I prefer to focus on error correction at the end of a session, so that it doesn't hinder fluency. I find that the best way to learn a language is through topics that are engaging and fun so we will often work from material relating to a student's interests, emails or situations from your work, role plays you might encounter traveling, videos like TED Talks, or from topics in the news. I'm looking forward to meeting you!
