About this tutor

I can teach Math, Science, English, and SAT/ACT prep. I am currently the math department head at a private school that specializes in one-on-one instruction to students with learning diferences and special needs. I studied Mechanical Engineering at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and have an English BA from Cal State Northridge. I have been a private tutor for 13 years.

It should never be the student's fault if he or she doesn't understand something. It is the teacher's responsibility to differentiate instruction and scaffold information in a way that the student can understand and enjoy. I love learning new ways to teach, and the best feeling possible is when a student understands an idea they once deemed impossible.

    Miles helped me explore my love for literature. As a result, I now read for fun, something I never used to do. As I got farther into high school, math got more and more difficult. Miles made it much easier to understand. I enjoy math now and I look forward to learning more. I have severe ADHD and I get distracted easily. Miles is very good at getting me back on track without making me feel bad for losing focus. Overall, he's pretty awesome, and great at what he does.

    Miles has been my tutor for 3 years in math for algebra through calculus, i used to never be able to understand these subjects but now i race to see if i can solve the problems before him. He makes the environment very happy and comfortable, he knows how to teach the subject exactly how you need to be able to understand it. With other tutors i felt weird asking questions, but with Miles he encourages them. I highly recommend Miles!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to learn my students' interests and hobbies so that I can approach my instruction in a way that is entertaining and engaging to the student. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been a private tutor for 13 years. I am currently the math department head at a private school that specializes in one-on-one instruction to students with learning differences. I studied Mechanical Engineering at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and have an English BA from Cal State Northridge. 


How did you get started teaching?

I have been teaching and tutoring since before I can remember. When I went to college, my parents tried to convince me to do anything other than teaching- how about business or finance or engineering? Teaching is my passion and my calling. I can break down an idea or teach a concept in 1000 different ways until the student has that "aha" moment. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have extensive experience with students with learning differences or special needs. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Just because a person has extensive knowledge or experience doesn't necessarily mean he or she knows how to teach the material in a fun and engaging way. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What are your distractors? What would you rather be doing instead of classwork/homework?
