Miles received his Bachelor of Arts in University Scholars from Baylor University in Texas. Part of the Honors College, University Scholars allowed him the freedom to study many disciplines during his college years, including business, psychology, religion, literature, and theatre. This well-rounded and disparate education has been incredibly valuable in the world of test prep and college admissions, helping him to guide students with diverse academic goals and interests.
Since 2007, Miles has worked for Compass Education Group in Los Angeles, California. Compass is widely regarded as California’s premier ACT/SAT prep company, and Miles was one of their most sought after tutors for both one-on-one lessons and classroom teaching. While working with hundreds of students and dozens of classes both large and small, Miles has helped students of all learning types and every score level imaginable. From students with starting scores in the mid-teens on the ACT to those who began with a composite score of 30 or higher, Miles has always been able to adjust his teaching style to pull the best out of his kids. His pupils have gone on to study at Stanford, Yale, UCLA, USC, Notre Dame, Penn, Dartmouth, NYU, Oregon, Texas Christian, Rice, Columbia, and Boston College just to name a few.
Beyond the impressive list of universities that Miles’ former students have attended, he is most proud of how many of his former students recommended him to friends based on his open and supportive teaching style. Now that he and his family have relocated to South Carolina, he hopes to use his expertise to benefit the students of the Lowcountry.
