Bio

Having graduated from the University of Vermont with a 3.6 GPA in Spanish Literature, I have spent my entire working life, counseling all ages of kids in several countries. For nine years, I taught Spanish and counseled and coached at Landon School in Bethesda, Maryland for nine years. I have assisted kids over the years as a tutor using a method that first involves developing a relationship with the student and even the family. I would like to see the study area to be sure it is the best...

For nine years, I taught Spanish and counseled and coached at Landon School in Bethesda, Maryland for nine years. I have assisted kids over the years as a tutor using a method that first involves developing a relationship with the student and even the family. I would like to see the study area to be sure it is the best it can be. Most importantly, this whole experience must be fun for both of us, and if it is, then great results will follow.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I have always enjoyed public speaking whether it was in schools, churches or simply in the street such as I have done for many years in El Salvador,Mexico, and Venezuela. If you are not feeling the self-confidence necessary to do classroom oral presentations, I can fix that to the point when you will volunteer to go first, if only to get finished with the assignment, but also because you might enjoy it. Remember, the best speaker in the world feels some butterflies, so it is quite natural for you to do so.

I have lived and taught in several foreign countries for many years. So many people wanted to learn to speak English, which is a very difficult language to learn. I had significant success in helping people to become capable at a conversational level.

With the constant use of texting, not only have personal relationships been affected, but the proper use of syntax and spelling has suffered. I am from the "old school". I know how to do it correctly.

English, math, and reading are basic tools which must be strong in order to ensure success in these same areas in later years. This can be achieved in a way which will be effective and fun-filled for both of us.

I have put together study plans which include organizational methods and customized study methods. I have done this in English and Spanish in four countries. As I tutor any subject, time management, and organizational skills are incorporated into the teaching. It is often necessary to re-do a binder since so many students save every paper thus creating a large pile of papers. Once this is done, the required work flows more easily.

English

So many people of all ages have lost the ability to write and speak proper English. There are many reasons to explain this fact, including less-than-competent teachers and the technological endeavors which allow one the freedom to speak using half words, letters and other so called conveniences which have undermined basic English skills. I have written many essays and articles over the years and have published a high-end magazine for a major construction company. Spelling and grammar, including proper syntax, are all important facets of the language.

College Counseling,

College Counseling

For many years, I have counseled students with regard to college selection and admission, and with outstanding success. Most recently I worked with a young man who wanted to attend the University of North Carolina. After looking at dozens of schools, it was my suggestion that he attend West Virginia. He wanted to be away from big cities but still near restaurants and movies. I suggested he visit the school. He did so and called to tell me that he loved the school and thanked me for insisting that he visit. He is very happy and doing quite well. A second student wanted to attend UCLA but she was very attached to her mother and I thought that was too far away. I suggested UMass since it was much closer and offered many career paths with the sciences. She is there and on the Dean's List and comes home often. Sometimes a "name" school might not be the best for a particular career path. Scholarships have to be researched given the fact that thousands of dollars are never used. Both of the students mentioned above applied for and were given financial help. Neither wanted it to be a loan and that worked out in fine fashion. I offer mock interviews including proper dress and posture. The essay if required, must be clear and to the point. Multiple pages are often ignored. Subject matter, spelling, grammar and the excessive use of certain words are discussed. Finally, I encourage the use of a "hook" in the interview. Colleges want diversity and there must be something that stands out which tells the admissions person that this student will add something significant to the student body.

Dyslexia

I have worked with several kids with Dyslexia both in this country and in El Salvador. I have found that the most effective method for me has been to show patience and understanding even when faced with frustration from the student. Furthermore, humor is incorporated into my work, giving me the opportunity to laugh at myself, thus lessening the impact on the student when a mistake is made. My posted rate is negotiable. I would like to meet your family to be certain there will be a compatible relationship. Thank you. Myles
Special Needs,

Special Needs

In my many years of working with special needs kids, two stand out. One was 17 and worked with me for about one and a half years. His mother, contrary to professional advice, never told him that he was autistic. He wanted to be emancipated, so we spent many hours developing life skills to include banking , grocery shopping, purchasing food and clothes and all that is included when renting an apartment. A second child was only eight. Because he couldn't speak or write, I choose to use animated stories on YouTube. He enjoyed the music and soon was singing songs, the first words his parents ever heard from him. We also used the graphic animations and soon he could draw them by himself. Soon his family moved and I lost contact. Both of these kids gave me tremendous fulfillment and a sense of accomplishment.

Really works hard to connect with students

Myles has been the best tutor. He took his time to ask what our special needs nephew was interested in and figured a way to keep his attention for a whole hour of learning. We asked for help with conversational English and that's what we got. Myles has a big jolly laugh that puts our nephew at ease and they talked in English about the Power Rangers and fireman along with out nephew's favorite music and many other fun topics in English. We couldn't ask for a more caring and committed tutor and highly recommend him!

Really engages with student's interests

The first session with our special needs student was a huge success! Myles took the time to talk with us ahead of the lesson to find out our student's interests and challenges. He took a 1/2 hour of his own time to understand what we were hoping to accomplish and what special needs were involved. When it came time for the lesson his personality brought out the best in our student. He kept switching topics to keep interest and even used music which really helped to energize and engage a conversation in English. Also, Myles has a huge infectious laugh that made mistakes no big deal and put our student at ease because this was supposed to be a fun way to learn English. We highly recommend Myles and will be utilizing him for several more lessons.

Reluctant writer enjoys working with Myles

My teenage son usually hates writing, and gets frustrated with me when I try to help him. However, he really enjoys working with Myles. He is actually producing written work without the usual frustration.
