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. I know the SAT and AP tests inside and out and am a seasoned and confident test-taker. 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, test prep, creative writing, English & American literature, history, social studies, grammar, reading.
Can’t wait to get to know you!
