About Miles


Bio

Hi, I'm Miles! I graduated cum laude from Harvard College with a degree in English. In the course of writing everything from travel guidebooks to poetry to political campaign statements to PR copy, I've come to understand the drafting and editing process intimately. I'd like not just to help you cross T's and dot i's, but to be your human vision board -- helping you craft unique approaches to make you and your writing stand out.

Hi, I'm Miles! I graduated cum laude from Harvard College with a degree in English. In the course of writing everything from travel guidebooks to poetry to political campaign statements to PR copy, I've come to understand the drafting and editing process intimately. I'd like not just to help you cross T's and dot i's, but to be your human vision board -- helping you craft unique approaches to make you and your writing stand out. Whether you're getting ready to apply to college, need a second set of eyes on your paper, or would like some extra help with a tricky project, I'm glad to lend my expertise.

I've been lucky to get to lead workshops, work with doctoral students on their dissertations, and assist high schoolers with their college applications. In high school, I was chosen as a national student poet by the Library of Congress and traveled around the country advocating for creative writing and teaching workshops (and got to meet President Obama!). Now I live in New York City, where I play music, write, hike, travel, and cook.

I love getting to know students and finding out what makes them tick--it’s the most rewarding part of being a tutor. No two students are the same, and I want us to find what works for you. When we meet, I’ll get to know you--your areas of interest and skill level, how you like to learn, and what you’re hoping to get out of our time. From there we can develop a learning plan to help you grow your confidence and skills.

My specialties: Essay editing, proofreading, creative writing, English & American literature, history, social studies, grammar, reading, test prep (SAT/ACT, ISEE/SSAT, AP tests)

Can’t wait to get to know you!

ONE WORD: BEST!

Miles helped me like no other tutor before. If you are looking for a tutor who can assist you with your college app essays, Miles is the BEST person to go. He is quick, engaging, and will edit your essays to another whole level. My experience was great and I would definitely recommend him!!!

Guillermo, 1 lesson with Miles

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Miles is an excellent tutor for my young niece. He has a very comfortable rapport even in a remote online setting, and that made learning very comfortable for her. He was very conscientious in his communications with me as well. I'm very happy that she is in the purview of a very skilled, highly qualified and empathetic teacher.

David, 1 lesson with Miles

Great!

Wonderful job! The tutor helped me to make my essays more concise and was very kind. I would definitely recommend this tutor to others for help with anything english related.

Hemant , 12 lessons with Miles

Experienced, smart, and friendly

Over the course of almost three years, Miles has been a fantastic source of help to my son for all kinds of English essays. When my high school son is struggling to clarify his ideas or needs help unpacking texts, he says that during lessons Miles always understands him so well and draws exactly what he wanted to argue but had trouble expressing. Miles carefully, purposefully, and precisely revises his essays on concepts and phrasing. He also knows how to handle all sorts of texts and subjects! His last minute copy edits helped my daughter with her college course women and gender studies papers. Recently, Miles was a huge source of help for my son’s college application essays by providing experienced proofreading/revisions and giving bigger picture comments and suggestions about the essays themselves. He’s very friendly, flexible, and reliable. My children have really enjoyed working with him, and I highly recommend him!

Mee-Soo, 26 lessons with Miles

Excellent!

Miles has reviewed several essays for me. His feedback has always been extremely thoughtful and helpful. He always apprises me in advance as to how long it will take him to do the job and provides an accurate estimate of how many hours of work would be involved. I am extremely satisfied with Miles’ work and hope to continue to get his help in future. I recommend Miles strongly and wish Miles the very best!

Radhika, 8 lessons with Miles

The best

Miles is very professional, and takes his work very seriously. He is very knowledgeable, and always makes sure to give genuine, meaningful, valuable and honest input that makes HUGE differences. Because of his work ethic, integrity, and trustworthiness, I relied on him to review every single one of my essays as part of my schools’ applications. It’s hard to find someone like Miles nowadays. I can not recommend him enough.

Amazing !

Miles you are THE guy to go to!! Miles was super responsive and literally sat down just to brainstorm with me and he just hit it out of the park. Miles is so nice and respectful, I can't recommend him enough.

Chris, 3 lessons with Miles

Great!!!!!!

Miles gave very helpful and constructive feedback for my child; she feels much more confident about her writing. He summarized exactly what she needed to improve on and it helped her a great deal.

Very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging

My daughter took her first session with Miles, who is very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. She truly loved reading and discussing poems with him! She would love to take more sessions with Miles!

Miles Ahead

Miles was a perfect tutor for my daughter. She required some editing of a paper, and he not only edited her work, but gave her useful tips for her writing and sentence structure which will bode well for her future writing. -S-
