As a certified teacher with nine years of experience, I truly love teaching students of all ages. I have ten years of experience tutoring and providing test prep to students around the world in grades PK-College in all subject areas. In 2016, I ranked #5 in Most Hours tutored locally (Columbia, SC) via Wyzant and maintain a 5 star rating via students and families. Currently, I serve as a school-wide Math Coach at an elementary school. I am known for my nurturing and loving, yet firm teaching ...


I appreciate Malai's honesty and experience in pointing out my daughter's weaknesses and strength. She was professional, organized, and knowledgeable. My daughter was excited with her first session. We look forward to working with Malai again.

Malai worked with my son on SAT math. She responded to my request very quickly due to his fast approaching test day. She was a big help. I will continue to use her to prepare him for ACT. She is very patient and understanding.

Malai was great! It usually takes a few minutes for my 6-year old to warm up to new people. I was amazed that she was so comfortable with Malai right from the start. Malai made reading fun and my daughter is looking forward to her next session.

Malia's first lesson with my son was amazing. I watched from a distance and witnessed my son laughing and learning. Her report was very detailed. She has given us hope and my son is looking forward to going back.

Malai was a great tutor for my 6 year old daughter. She helped her with reading and made it very fun! My daughter is ready for another session already! I'm looking forward to seeing how she progresses after more sessions. Malai's teaching techniques are great & she's very patient. She had several hands on activities which kept my daughter captivated the entire session. I really need help with teaching my daughter to read and I'm glad I found Malai. She has a great gift of teaching. I'm looking forward to more sessions.

I learned great critical thinking and reading skills. She explained every question to me after I answered it, whether I was right or wrong, lol. She also notified me of my strengths and weaknesses. God bless Malai P. and may the Lord always be with you!

Malai has been a great tutor for my 4 year old son, in preparing him for kindergarten. My son struggled with his alphabet, and I really wanted to start him reading for kindergarten. He was very active with limited attention, but Malai introduced a lot of interesting, and fun activities that made learning fun and easy for my son. He quickly picked up the letters of the alphabet, and she has started introducing small words to him for reading. My son is so comfortable with Malai and actually really enjoys learning and reading books now. I would recommend Malai to anyone, because he has learned more with her in a short amount of time than the 2 yrs he was in preschool.

She is patient and understanding. Malai went above and beyond to find additional material to help my student prepare for an upcoming exam.
