« Mischa tutored my son for a more then a year on a weekly basis and we remained in touch for occassional "one-off" sessions. My son has made great progress, both in his literacy skills and in his general confidence. It was a great to find someone so patient and calm with a great approach which gained my son's respect and trust in short period of time. Mischa is also very good at giving constructive feedback and detailed reports if requested. »

Mischa - East Dulwich - Maths

Methodology

I encourage students to challenge assumptions, think for themselves, and generally see learning as a creative process rather than a passive one.

English Literature, EFL (English as a Foreign language), Music and Piano (early levels), Art

- Tell me about your qualifications.

BA in English Literature from Oxford University
CertTESOL from Trinity College London
MA in Creative Writing: Poetic Practice (Distinction) from Royal Holloway

- How much do you charge?

£55 per hour

Subject offered at a lower rate are subject to an additional travel fee depending on the location of the lessons.

LOW INCOME/UNWAGED SUPPORT
I offer substantial discounts for low income and unwaged families, especially if they are able to come to me for the lessons. Please get in touch if this applies to you, and we can discuss possibilities.

- Where do you teach?

London, especially Dulwich and South-East London, but also Central London and West London.

- When are you available?

I am currently free from 1-8pm Monday to Friday. I will also consider one-off weekend teaching sessions, or lessons after 8pm, at a higher rate. Lessons based in the Peckham/East Dulwich area are more likely to fit into my timetable.

Any age, any level.

7+, 11+, 13+, GCSE and A Level
IELTS, TOEFL, FCE
Piano Grades 1-3
Music Theory grades 1-6

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Skype or Google hangout

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I grew up in Dulwich, and went to Dulwich Prep, and since my childhood have always spent a great deal of my free time learning about things which were outside the syllabus of my education -- about the arts, history, philosophy and languages in particular -- because I have always seen learning as a delightful thing in itself, as well as having a practical purpose. I think this love of learning carries through into my teaching, where I try to create the same enthusiasm and interest in my pupils. I am particularly sympathetic to students who are uncomfortable about simply following rules and learning things for no apparent reason, and I try to encourage students to challenge assumptions, think for themselves, and generally see learning as a creative process rather than a passive one.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

English as a Foreign Language: I have taught General English, Business English, English for Law, Military English and Academic English, to students of all levels and ages in London, Granada, Kiev, Paris and Berlin. I have helped students to achieve the required grades for the TOEIC and IELTS exams to get into their chosen university, to prepare for postgraduate interviews and conferences at Cambridge University, and with other doctoral work. I've also helped students to pass the entrance exams for the Collège interarmées de défense (CID) in Paris. I also run classes and a film club for English language learners.

English Literature: I have helped students with 7+, 11+, Common Entrance at 13+ exams (for St Olave's, Wilson's School & Wallingford) and GCSE and IGCSE (WJEC, CIE, AQA). Set texts covered include: The Tempest, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, I'm the King of the Castle, Purple Hibiscus and the poetry of Thomas Hardy and Ted Hughes. I have also helped students build literacy and numeracy skills, and general confidence, at the Key Stage 1&2 level, and find tutoring children at this age and stage of development interesting and rewarding.

Piano, Music & Chess: I have taught piano and chess at the beginner and lower levels. I currently have a chess ELO rating of around 1600.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

Magdalen College, Oxford University

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I am currently teaching 7+, 11+, English Literature, English Language, Chess, Piano and music theory to adults and children around London and by Skype.

Mischa tutored my son for a more then a year on a weekly basis and we remained in touch for occassional "one-off" sessions. My son has made great progress, both in his literacy skills and in his general confidence.

It was a great to find someone so patient and calm with a great approach which gained my son's respect and trust in short period of time.

Mischa is also very good at giving constructive feedback and detailed reports if requested.

Mischa is undoubtedly the most efficient English teacher I've ever met. His flexibility, experience, knowledge and know-how allowed me to get the highest mark in English (17/20).
I often say that I passed a difficult and state-of-the-art exam thanks to him.

E
Eun-Jung

Now I can say that I am enjoying learning English. I like his teaching style as well as his personality (kind, wise, humorous…). He always tries to meet my needs and teaches me how to improve my English on my own. If anyone is hesitant about taking skype lessons, I would also say that they help you not to be afraid of telephone conversations in English, which is good practice.

Great teacher!, he helped me to improve my speaking skills and grammar problems. He is very suitable, I needed a special method and he adapted himself to my demand.

C
César

Great teacher, many teaching methods adapted to your requirements (if you prefer to talk, to prepare a test, etc), flexible time and also it is possible to have skype lessons (which is great if you are away)...and a very nice person.
