Mischa has been tutoring since 2008, and has experience across a broad age range (from 5 years to adult), and with both classroom and one-to-one teaching. His focus is on putting the student’s curiosity and imagination first, and responding to that in a flexible way to nurture a love of learning, and an excitement in discovery and research.
He has an EFL qualification (CertTESOL), and extensive experience of working with people for whom English is not their first language. He now mainly tutors English and Maths, and sometimes Piano and Chess. He has experience preparing children for entrance to Alleyn’s Junior, Dulwich Prep, Colet Court, KCS Wimbledon, Dulwich College, Alleyn’s, Trinity, JAGS, City of London Girls, and St Pauls Girls, amongst others. He has tutored GCSE and IGCSE English for the WJEC, CIE, AQA, and OCR specifications.
He was educated at Dulwich Prep followed by Tonbridge School, and has an English BA from Oxford, and an MA in Creative Writing (Poetic Practice) from Royal Holloway.
