Background Information
Miles is a private tutor with six years of experience, five of which have been with professional agencies where he has registered 1000+ hours of tuition. He achieved a First Class Honours degree in History from University College London and is undertaking an MSc in the History of International Relations at the London School of Economics. His tutoring career has ranged from accepting residential placements abroad, operating alongside household staff and creating online educational courses, to teaching English and History to students aged between 4 to 18. He has had particular success with improving essay writing, with all three of his English GCSE students last academic year managing to raise their grades by at least three levels.

Miles’ tutoring style consists of taking a conceptual and creative approach to tuition. Very rarely does he teach content-based classes – a tutor is required to do what a book cannot. Instead, he cultivates the underlining skill sets of his students to help them achieve their highest potential.

Cancellation Policy
Our standard cancellation policy is that cancellations within 24 hrs may still be charged at the full rate. It is at the discretion of the tutor, and the circumstances are taken into consideration. We tend to advise tutors to give the benefit of the doubt to the client in the first instance, and politely remind them, then they are fully in their right to charge for repeat offenses, but they must notify the client they will do so so it isn't a surprise bill.
