Testimonials from Smiles&Miles tutors
“Working with Smiles and Miles has been an amazing experience. It’s truly lovely to hear from children and parents that our sessions are making a difference to their confidence and school life!” James KS1 AND KS2 tutor.
“I have very much enjoyed my experience tutoring through Smiles and Miles. It is great to be able to really understand the difficulties a child is having with their work, and to spend time on overcoming those problem areas, through learning activities that are truly tailored to the individual. Seeing children grow in confidence as they progress gives me a feeling of satisfaction, and the rewards of seeing children happy in their learning and becoming more motivated to “have a go” is a level of job satisfaction that is hard to come by.”
Hazel KS1 and KS2 tutor
“It’s really rewarding work with a small group of children or individuals as their progress is evident very quickly. It is also so refreshing to teach without a PowerPoint and it really enhances your ability to explain key concepts and ideas.”
