“I enjoy Mondays. When I start the day, the kids are excited to see me and share what happened over the weekend. It brings me such joy.”

Prior to Reading Corps, Malik felt that his life was stuck in a routine. As a tutor, he says he has found excitement, purpose and growth. Now he is investing his time in helping others – it doesn’t even feel like work.

Every day, Malik helps students strengthen their literacy skills and confidence – all while making learning fun. Often when he finishes up a lesson, his students ask, “Can we do more?” And according to Malik, that moment is the best part of tutoring.
