Ian Miles, founder of IanGenuity EPLC, was educated at Forres (Swanage), Tonbridge School (as a Foundation Exhibitioner); New College, Oxford (MA 1984) and Corpus Christi College, Cambridge (PGCertEd 1982).
His teaching career began in 1982 at Aldro (Surrey; IAPS) where he taught French, took on running the RE department and was also school organist; after two years running his own language department at Maidwell Hall (Northants; IAPS, 1989-91) he returned to Oxford in a similar role at New College School (IAPS/CSA; fd. 1379) where he set up an international cultural exchange to Caen in Normandy.
After stints of supply teaching and as a county tutor, including a year’s 0.5 f.t.e. GCSE Maths work with Young Offenders at Huntercombe, he established himself as an independent tutor in 2002, working also online (for the Satellite School) with young people with long-term medical conditions and other adverse circumstances. He has since joined the tutor panel of Oxford Home Schooling / Open Learning, remotely mentoring international students in Maths and French, in each of which subjects he was commissioned to rewrite and update course materials.
