About Malkia

I am offering tutoring in math, science, history and MS Excel. I really enjoyed those subjects when I was in school, and I still do. I was the kid who always wanted to sit in the front and answer the teacher's questions.

I was a science major at American University, and worked in that field for a few years. I most recently I have been working as the office manager of a small company. I am a very organized person by nature, and people often ask if I am a veteran (which I am not). I enjoy explaining complicated information to people, and I do that regularly with the type of work that I do.

I also normally give homework and quizzes to regularly assess if the student is understanding what is being taught. I've tutored a number of students over the past couple of years, and I help them get the grades they want.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to achieve your academic goals.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Microsoft Access

I first learned MS Access and MS Excel while working as a project assistant in 2000. I attended a two-day training course for MS Access in 2001. While working at that position until late 2007, I used MS Access to:
- Perform quality checks of climate change data models of methane emissions for the US Environmental Protection Agency.
- Design databases containing forms and queries, to manage data for analyses.
- Manage a data entry project.

I have been tutoring other students in MS Excel and would use similar techniques to tutor MS Access.

Highly Recommended Tutor — My son asked for a tutor after he was having trouble with Algebra 2. He has never used a tutor before. After only three lessons with Malkia, he has improved by moving up two letter grades in this class! She is a patient and talented tutor. Malkia has a calm and kind manner and explains concepts in an easy to understand way. My son is enjoying working with her. We highly recommend her. ...
