About Malcolm


Bio

Hi there!

My name is Malcolm. I've ended up become a test-taking specialist through my lived experience, as well as through working as an ACT tutor. I tutor Spanish and high school maths as well. I've been working on another platform, and now want to transition over to Wyzant. Previously, I earned an undergrad degree in Music (Saxophone) from the University of Oklahoma.

Hi there!

My name is Malcolm. I've ended up become a test-taking specialist through my lived experience, as well as through working as an ACT tutor. I tutor Spanish and high school maths as well. I've been working on another platform, and now want to transition over to Wyzant. Previously, I earned an undergrad degree in Music (Saxophone) from the University of Oklahoma.

Spanish tutoring:

I have very thoroughly and effectively studied Spanish Language, even living for a time in Alcalá de Henares, Spain in 2018 and 2019 while working as a Language assistant in a public school. My Spanish skills are certified with the highest language diploma (Instituto Cervantes DELE- Nivel C2). I've also studied Chinese to an intermediate level in Taiwan, and French to intermediate level in Montreal, Canada.

For language learning, I believe in communicative, practical instruction. People learn best when new vocabulary and grammar are given meaning via practical conversations and via media such as stories, videos, and even songs. I introduce new content in the most organic way possible. My broad personal experience has helped me learn what types of materials and activities are most effective.

ACT tutoring:

The ACT is a big test, and covers a range of topics. It’s hard for most students to know where to begin, but through tutoring, my students can steadily learn content bit-by-bit and solidify each concept in their intermediate to long term memory. For example, if the student initially has an issue with semicolons in the English test, I will teach that in one session, write it into our shared session notes, then review semicolons later to ensure that the concept sticks. The same principle applies to content on the math test. We will also cover testing strategy, and use a timer to help with time management. I've personally scored a 34.

For any tutoring, I'll be happy to discuss beforehand the materials and strategies we'll be using, as well as any inquiries about my experience :)
