About Miles

I am a graduate of the University of Southern Maine, where I earned my BA in Classical Studies, concentrating in Ancient Greek. I live in Bridgton ME, and have been in the education field for nearly 3 years. I am certified in the state of Maine as an Ed Tech III, and also hold a TEFL certificate, which enables me to teach English as a foreign language. I recently taught English and Algebra in Vietnam for 3 months. I worked as an Ed Tech and English/Algebra/History tutor for a public school district in Maine before I went to Vietnam. I currently work as a substitute teacher. I am also an avid soccer and baseball fan and player, and have coached both sports at the elementary and middle school levels.

I consider myself a flexible educator, and can adjust relatively quickly to individual learner styles. I have led full classrooms as well as individual students, with ability levels ranging from well above grade level, to special needs and learning disability. I am patient, thorough and stubbornly focused on the overall success of my students. I require open and respectful communication between myself, students and parents, as it is the overall team effort that will lead to success and the greatest learning experience for the student. I have found in my educational experience that I can make personal connections with students rather easily, which allows students to be more relaxed and comfortable during lessons; no one can learn when they are tense and uncomfortable. I would like to thank you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to working with you, and your child, toward a stronger academic future.
