About Malik

I am the Founder and Chief Instructor at the Harlem Math Institute, where I run a Summer Math and Engineering Camp for kids that helps elementary, middle, and high school students strengthen their core and get ahead for the fall, while having fun and making friends in the process.

I am a graduate of MIT and has been teaching and tutoring in a variety of capacities for more than 25 years. I first began tutoring in the 8th grade as a way to help other students while sharing my love of math. That interest in math drew me into competition, where in high school I took 5th place in the State of Georgia in the American Mathematics Contest (AMC12), earning me a place on the State’s math team, where I helped lead the team to its first top 10 finish in the country. Upon graduation from high school, I co-founded a summer math school—the Math Instructional Institute of Atlanta—where I taught over 200 students during the next 3 years. More than 20 years later, I continue to share my love of learning in general, and have 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.

I currently work with students from 3rd grade through college, in addition to do ing GMAT and GRE prep. I tutor most math subjects (from elementary through college calculus) and physics (through college level 1 and 2). I have students at many of the top schools in and around NYC, including NYU, Trinity, Horace Mann, Hunter College Elementary, Collegiate, Fieldston, Hotchkiss, Loyola, Marymount, Leman, and Success Academy Schools, among others.

Prior to pursuing tutoring and education full time, I worked in management consulting and investment banking and I am both a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and Chartered Market Technician (CMT). I have a Bachelor's in Electrical Engineering from MIT and an MBA with Distinction from the University of Michigan. Outside of education, I have also had a lifelong interest in martial arts, where I am a black belt in Taekwondo and was State Champion in Michigan in 2004.

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 (K-6th)

I am the Founder and Chief Instructor at the Harlem Math Institute, where I runs a Summer Math and Engineering Camp for kids. I am a graduate of MIT and have been teaching and tutoring in a variety of capacities for more than 25 years. I first began tutoring in the 8th grade as a way to help other students while sharing my love of math. That interest in math drew me into competition, where in high school I took 5th place in the State of Georgia in the American Mathematics Contest (AMC12), earning me a place on the State’s math team, where I helped lead the team to its first top 10 finish in the country. Upon graduation from high school, I co-founded a summer math school—the Math Instructional Institute of Atlanta—where I taught over 200 students over the next 3 years. More than 20 years later, I continues to share my love of learning in general, and have 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. I have tutored through various volunteer organizations in the city (New York City School Volunteer Program, Harlem Children Zone, Sponsors for Educational Opportunity) and have also spent time teaching grades k-7 in a charter school in New Jersey.

GMAT

My GMAT score is a 790 (99.9+%). I have been tutoring GMAT for 5 years, and I have over 25 years of experience tutoring in general. I have consistently gotten students gains of 80-120 points or more to get them into the elusive "700 Club." I also have an MBA (with honors) from the University of Michigan and a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering from MIT, and have worked at top firms in both Management Consulting and Finance in my career.

GRE


My GMAT score is a 790 (99.95%). I have been tutoring GMAT and GRE for 5 years, and I have over 25 years of experience tutoring in general, particularly on the Math side. I also have an MBA (with honors) from the University of Michigan and a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering from MIT, and have worked at top firms in both Management Consulting and Finance in my career.

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.

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.

SAT Math

I have been tutoring various standardized tests (SAT, GMAT, GRE, SSAT, SHSAT) for 5 years and have over 25 years of experience tutoring in general. My GMAT score is a 790 (99.9+%...equivalent of a ~2370 on SAT). I also have an MBA (with honors) from the University of Michigan and a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering from MIT, and have worked at top firms in both Management Consulting and Finance in my career.
