Reading and writing have always been an interest of mine but my comprehension often felt short when it came to school work. Malik helped me pinpoint the problem. He showed me how useful close readings and annotations were when it came to reading response assignments. After a few weeks of tutoring my grades went up. Malik's a superb tutor and his tips will stick with me entering high school.a year ago

I was struggling in my English class and I was on the verge of becoming ineligible to play sports. A teammate of mine recommended I contact his friend he used to go to high school with (Malik) for some help, so I did. Malik introduced me to the discourse of English in a way that made it interesting to learn. I can't thank him enough for helping me raise my grades and giving me a newfound interest in the subject.a year ago
