About Malikah

I love working with students, especially through the writing and college application processes. After living on the East Coast for most of my life (where I was a college writing instructor, high school English teacher, and college counselor at a selective private school in Washington DC), I am excited to continue my education work in Seattle. I currently work as an English teacher at a private school in the Seattle area, where I teach World and American literature. My tutoring style is patient and focused; I aim to make the college application process fun!

My background and credentials are in education and creative writing: I have a Bachelor of Arts from the University of the Arts, in Screenwriting; a Master of Arts from Rutgers University, in English Literature and Creative Writing ; a certificate in College Admissions from the Harvard Summer Institute for College Admissions; and a Master of Education from Columbia University-Teachers College, in Educational Leadership . I am a published short story writer and have helped many students in both improving their writing skills and being accepted to a wide variety of colleges and universities.

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.

College Counseling

I have worked as a college counselor at a private school in Washington DC for 3 years, as well as working with educational non-profits in a college counselor capacity. I have a certificate from the Harvard Summer Institute for College Admissions and have worked as an independent college counselor both in Washington DC and Boston, MA.

Proofreading

I have many years of proofreading experience, both from my work as a published short story writer and as a college and high school instructor of English.

Vocabulary

I am an high school English teacher who has helped students to better understand vocabulary in context and find strategies to study and memorize new vocabulary.

Writing

I have a Masters degree in English literature and have several years experience teaching composition at the college level. I have also been teaching English literature and writing at the high school level for over almost a decade, assisting students in improving their analytical writing, close reading, and literary analysis skills.
