'We asked Mischa rather late in the day to help our son prepare for grammar school 11 plus entrance exams. Our son was cautious about his abilities in English comprehension and creative writing. Over a few months Mischa had encouraged him to write assertively, imaginatively and he really started to relax and enjoy his writing. I was thrilled when he passed his Sutton Grammar school 11 plus exams in September and has been selected for interview at two top independent schools. Mischa is encouraging, professional and clearly a gifted teacher.'
'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 (that is great if you are away)...and a very nice person.'

'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.'
Boris (Paris, France), student from September 2009 to April 2010
'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 hesitates to take skype lessons with him, I would also say that skype lessons help you not to fear 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.'

'We brought Mischa in over a year ago to work with our six year old with a view to improving our child's attitude and motivation towards learning and also to help with exam preparation and techniques for year two SATS exams.
Mischa comes equipped with a wide repertoire of techniques and tools to keep learning fun and interesting and he was very adept at identifying some of the issues that were impeding our child's development and devising strategies for overcoming them.
Mischa has been a calming and motivating influence on our child and his enthusiastic and highly interactive teaching style has kept our child engaged throughout their sessions.
We are pleased to say that with Mischa's help our child achieved his SATS targets this year. We would highly recommend Mischa to any parent looking for an exceptional tutor for their child.'
