STAG Mumbler accredited REVIEW
Smiles&Miles is a new and rapidly growing private tutoring business operating in the Selby, York and Tadcaster areas and it guarantees smiles! Started in April this year by Sarah Oliver, a local mum with over 23 years teaching experience; Smiles&Miles already has a reputation for motivating students to make accelerated progress by building their confidence and helping them to develop a positive image of themselves as learners.
Sarah’s vision for the business is to have a supply of tutors, teaching a wide variety of subjects and ages (KS1-KS5) to provide one to one tutoring sessions for local students at a reasonable price. She has a passion for working with children and this has a positive impact on their learning therefore she will be looking for like- minded teachers to tutor for Smiles&Miles. Currently, Sarah has two extra tutors on board (KS2 AND KS3-5) and is in the process of taking on more. Smiles&Miles only takes on fully qualified, enhanced DBS checked and smiley tutors who travel to the student’s home. Parents and guardians can have the peace of mind that only high quality, curriculum related lessons which ensure academic progress will be delivered. A friendly tutor with a cheerful manner also enables the students to feel happy and at ease during the session.
Smiles&Miles will be running some holiday group sessions and after school clubs. The next event is the summer fun learning sessions at the Regen Centre in Riccall running in the mornings from Monday 13th August until Thursday 16th August.
Smiles&Miles comes highly recommended by local parents and guardians.

Absolutely brilliant…. Sarah is tutoring my grandson and he is coming on leaps and bounds. Extremely pleasant and good to be around, he loves his session and is benefitting from it very much. I would highly recommend.

Four months ago I was given the worst news at our parents evening- our little one was 2 years behind and he had just gone into year 1. We had always been told how bright he was so I was devastated but with the help of Sarah from Smiles&Miles and the shear determination of our little solider, after about four months I’ve been told by his teacher, who is absolutely amazed, that he is now where he needs to be. If it hadn’t been for Sarah and her ability to keep him going for an hour after a day at school I don’t know where we would be. Can highly recommend.

Absolutely brilliant tutor, our daughter is made to feel so comfortable during the sessions and isn’t afraid to say if she doesn’t understand something. She looks forward to it every week.
(Mum of Year 4 child, Cawood)
Sarah has only had two sessions with my son and is making good progress already, I really recommend her. Thank you.

My daughter waits at the door for ten minutes before her session is due to begin- she really looks forward to it!
(Mum of a Year 5 child, Cawood)
Sarah is an amazing, nurturing tutor. I knew Sarah before she started tutoring so I jumped at the chance for her to help my daughter. She had lost a lot of confidence in her abilities and was falling behind at school. Half way through the first session she was beaming, gave me a thumbs up saying “it’s so much fun”. She keeps asking when she will see Sarah again and can’t wait for her next session. I would highly recommend Sarah.

After a difficult start at primary school our son has struggled for a long time with his confidence in English. Facing the six week holidays we wanted a block of tutoring that would enable our son to start the new school year with the confidence he needed to move forward. Sarah tailored our sons tutoring to his summer holiday homework and his personal interests to make the sessions enjoyable and productive. Our son finished each session beaming with pride and couldn’t wait to show us his work. I would recommend Sarah and Smiles and Miles to anyone who feels that their child would benefit from extra help.
