About Mallika

I am an Electrical Engineer by education. Math has always been easy for me. I love teaching and am good at it. I believe in doing the best in anything I do. As such, I prepare my lessons in advance, talk to students, analyze their strengths and try to tailor my teaching to fit the student. I have teaching experience in several areas. First starting with my kids. I have 3 kids. I have taught them and their friends math, physics, computers, graded their essays etc. and generally helped the kids. I have taught Visual Basic in National university and privately to several adults in the US and in India. I conduct online classes in Microsoft Office, desktop publishing and basic web site development. I have taught computers at Saddleback Valley Unified School district for 5 years. Am presently teaching computers at Santa Ana school District. I worked as a Hardware Development engineer for Unisys Corporation for 11 years and then stayed home to be with my kids. I have worked as a software Engineer, developing ecommerce web sites for 4 years. I have a computer company through which I do web site development, office automation and other computer related services. I am presently teaching Fatwire to 4 students via skype. My favorite subjects are Math & Computers.

To summarize, I love teaching. As I have kids of my own, I have the patience to work with them until they understand the subject matter. I am a good listener and have learned some nifty tricks from my students. I do expect the students to study the material we cover. I quiz the students and make sure they have understood the material taught before I move to the next topic.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary Math

Basic math for up to 6th grade

General Computer

Simple computer knowledge that makes life easier


The robust resilient computers. A Mac is a computer just like a PC, and can be used for presentations, creating documents, playing music, surfing the web, playing games etc. I have worked with Macs for many years supporting school districts. I worked as a computer instructor for SVUSD for several years. At present at SAUSD, I support PCs, Macs and iPads for the largest high school in the district. I also teach students Microsoft Office, desktop publishing, web page creation and movie magic using various applications on the PC and Mac. On the Mac along with Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), I teach iMovie, iPhoto, Garage Band, etc. I use iLife and iWork on the ipad to teach which is a new addition. I also support the teachers who use various applications for grading, attendance, Smartboard and with general networking problems.

Public Speaking

I am an engineer working as a consultant and a teacher. I have been teaching at elementary, middle and high schools. While teaching you practice all rules of public speaking. As a consultant, I work as a technical program manager and am presenting in front of stake holders and upper management several times a week. I present, negotiate, and deal with companies in many different countries. I am from India and have myself gone through a public speaking course at UCI as part of my engineering curriculum. In my spare time, I am part of an Indian drama team and have won best actress awards, which further underscores my public speaking abilities.

Web Design

I have been doing web design for the last 10 years. I worked for a small company which built web sites for online universities before I started my own company. Through my employment and my own company, I have developed at least 50-60 sites. I also teach a hands on after school tech program in Santa Ana, where I teach high school kids website development, desktop publishing, computer repair, and services to help them get jobs to pay for college.
