Hello! Im Miles, and i am an artist, teaching artist and big brother living in Brooklyn. I work with kids because i truly love them. I believe in treating children with kindness, love and respect, while nurturing self-agency and interdependence. I take a pressure free approach, allowing kids the space to learn with gentle guidance rather than be taught. I am also a fierce protector, champion and advocator of fairness. I have taken the Natural Play Therapy course, which is a relationship-based approach for all ages and diagnoses. We teach purposeful play, using natural & respectful interactions that open our kids worlds up to a truly INCLUSIVE experience. This modality focuses very much on the inner stance we take, as our intentions affect our kids just as much, if not more, than our actions and words. For example we practice "friend mentality" instead of "teacher mentality" to create a 50/50 Read more atmosphere where trust and respect build the foundation for a flourishing relationship. Being a highly sensitive person, i know how easy it is to be repelled by someones personal agenda for me, while an open mind and heart who accepts me where i am holds the space for me to expand and grow within myself and in the world. It is my aim to nurture in this way. I am a self taught artist; i paint abstract and graffiti art. I got into graffiti in high school in 1999. After getting into some trouble and self-reflection years later, i got inspired to share my knowledge and personal wisdoms about life and the learning process through Youtube tutorials, to give support to so many kids who don't have. With 14,600 subscribers to date and countless comments of gratitude, my channel has become a huge success and a big encouragement to keep being a positive influence in the world. I also skateboard , and practice martial arts, amongst other things. I am currently the lead facilitator at Dida Academy in Park Slope, full time. I taught art at Brooklyn Apple Academy in Park Slope, at Smarter Toddler Preschool in Williamsburg, and currently with ReSurf Project. I was also a teacher-guide at Crayon Power in Windsor Terrace. I have worked with kids of all ages, including infants, as well as children with ADHD, Autism and Epilepsy. Its really an honor and privilege for me to work with children and will be so grateful to be a part of your child's life. references : https://cottageclass.com/teachers/profiles/mr-miles
