About Malik


Bio

I have been tutoring for more than 25 years, and I know how to get the most out of a student. I am one of the 100 or so people (out of nearly 300,000 each year) who scored 790 or above on the GMAT (99.95%...equivalent to 1600 SAT). I have had great success tutoring SAT, ACT, GMAT, and most other standardized tests, both independently and for test prep companies.

I have been tutoring for more than 25 years, and I know how to get the most out of a student. I am one of the 100 or so people (out of nearly 300,000 each year) who scored 790 or above on the GMAT (99.95%...equivalent to 1600 SAT). I have had great success tutoring SAT, ACT, GMAT, and most other standardized tests, both independently and for test prep companies.

*For SAT, the average improvement was about 250 points on the old SAT, and so far has been about 150 points on the current version. My most recent SAT student went from mid-1300s to a 1550 (1570 superscore)! I have a current student who started in the mid-1100s and is on track to score 1500+ in May.

*For GMAT, the average score increase has been 80-100 points, usually over a very intensive 1 1/2 - 3 months.

In addition to SAT/ACT/GMAT, I also work with students from 3rd grade through college. I tutor most math subjects (from elementary through college calculus) and physics (through college level 1 and 2). I have had students at most of the top schools in and around NYC, including NYU, Trinity, Horace Mann, Hunter College Elementary, Collegiate, Dalton, Chapin, Brearly, Fieldston, Hotchkiss, Dwight-Englewood, Marymount, Loyola, Leman, and Success Academy Schools, among others.

Background: I have a BS in Electrical Engineering from MIT and an MBA with Distinction from the University of Michigan. Over the last 15 years, I have worked in Management Consulting and Investment Banking, but tutoring and education is now my primary focus.

MY DETAILED BIO:

Malik is the Founder and Chief Instructor at the Harlem Math Institute, where he runs a Summer Math and Engineering Camp for kids. He is a graduate of MIT and has been teaching and tutoring in a variety of capacities for more than 25 years. He first began tutoring in the 8th grade as a way to help other students while sharing his love of math. That interest in math drew him into competition, where in high school he took 5th place in the State of Georgia in the American Mathematics Contest (AMC12), earning him a place on the State’s math team, where he helped lead the team to its first top 10 finish in the country. Upon graduation from high school, he co-founded a summer math school—the Math Instructional Institute of Atlanta—where he taught over 200 students during the next 3 years. More than 20 years later, he continues to share his love of learning in general, and has tutored and taught hundreds of students everything from basic math, science, and reading–to standardized tests for college and graduate school–to leadership development, public speaking, and how to get a job on Wall Street.

Professionally, Malik has worked in management consulting and investment banking and is both a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and Chartered Market Technician (CMT). He has a BS in Electrical Engineering from MIT and an MBA with Distinction from the University of Michigan. Outside of education, Malik has also had a lifelong interest in martial arts, where he is a black belt in Taekwondo and was State Champion in Michigan in 2004.

Physics

When I was growing up, I took physics several times: at two different summer programs for gifted kids (one at Duke, one at MIT), the regular class in my high school, the AP class in my high school, and the advanced theoretical classes once I entered MIT. In each case, I was at the top of my class, and I also helped teach physics at the same MIT summer program that I had attended when I was in high school. I have tutored college physics as well. I say all that to say that I've seen physics taught in a variety of settings to students of extremely different aptitudes, and I understand some of the difficulties that students of different levels encounter when learning physics for the first time. Physics is conquerable, and can even be a lot of fun if approached the right way.

Martial Arts

I am currently a black belt in taekwondo. I have been involved in martial arts since I was 4 years old. I begain in Issun Ryu and switched to American Karate, studying consistently from age 4 until 18. In high school I stopped testing for belts, but trained for nearly 3 years with 3 national champion fighters (one of whom went on to be a world champion). I studied various styles (karate, taekwondo, shorinji kenpo, aikido) on and off from age 18 until about 29, when I picked up taekwondo seriously and began competing. I competed in local, national and international tournaments for 4 years, during which time I became Michigan state champion at Middleweight. I continue to train on my own, teach my kids, and spar recreationally.
