« Perfect! My experience of studying with him was really amazing because of the way he explains topics. It is really satisfying as he gives real-life examples which helps me learn better, and the notes which he provides really help me to understand the chapter properly. And the best part is that he makes it a friendly environment which in turn makes the students feel comfortable to ask any question without hesitating.Very highly recommend!! »

IELTS professional tutor, friendly, funny and dedicated, with a high success rate

Methodology

My teaching method is focused on language development, vocabulary and grammar. I am aiming to train my students in paraphrasing techniques, as the IELTS test (but not only) is fundamentally based on paraphrasing. I'm using videos relevant to different topics.

Background

I am an IELTS teacher based in Sydney, Australia. I have been working as a TESOL teacher for over 12 years and I my main aim is to get the highest possible results within the the shortest amount of time.

Mike's response

A good and dilligent student of English, Jorjena must work on her writing skills and improve her vocabulary. I'm sure that with further practice and guidance she will improve in short time. Thanks for being a great student!

Mike is hands down the best English teacher I've ever had the pleasure being taught by. His knowledge is profound and teaching methods are most effective. Students that moved to different classes for various reasons quickly realized how special Mike's approach is and soon most of them came back. In fact, never have I seen so many students asking for a transfer, than when Mike was sent to teach an IELTS preparation class. I suppose it's because teaching is his true passion. However, if there's one thing he's not exactly fond of, it's wasting time. So, in case you sign up to study with Mike, I can assure you, he definitelly won't waste yours.

An honest person with a crucial skill of explaining things in context. As a foreign student, I met him at Ability English school and he made a huge impression on me "by default" (an inside joke). His strong sense for leading as a teacher combined with his profound knowledge was absolutely unforgettable for me. I strongly recommend Mr. Masca to Superprof students.

Mike is the most passionate English teacher I’ve had. From the beginning of my IELTS course I could tell that he just loves the language and tries to spread the same enthusiasm for learning to all his students.
In addition, he doesn’t just set his classes to the basic topics from the text books, but he’s constantly looking for fresh and updated information related to what is happening around the world. That touch really makeS the classes both enjoyable and interesting.
