  • Profile description
  • リー マイズコフ An all round Tech guy, Artist, TEFL tutor, environmentalist and Body Movement enthusiast.

    I have lots of energy and patience, happy working both with children and adults. I am also open to other roles outside of tutoring such as Information Technology which was my main background for a decade. A personal longer term goal is to live a 100% ecological life style growing my own food and generating power through solar and wind based technologies, as such any jobs related to green technologies interest me greatly too.

    I adhere to the simple philosophy of healthy mind, healthy body, as such I aim to get as much of a balance of both as I can. Conversation and knowledge are food to me, the more varied and unusual the better, and this only comes about through socialising and networking with as many people as possible from all over the world who would discover I am…

    A strong advocate for open source technologies, environmental issues and sharing of knowledge. Has a great interest in Art from high-tech VR to ancient traditions. Passionate about astrophysics, interested in cryptography, puzzles, mazes, exploring forests, its all fun to him. They will also find he is greatly interested in low impact living, using sustainable methods, building small homes made from the natural resources around, and having a future goal to live a 100% ecological life style growing food and generating power through solar and wind based technologies. He is well travelled, happy to talk about backpacking around Europe and Japan and understanding what is like trying to work while on the move.

    Physically he likes to improve himself through callisthenics, acrobatic and circus based skills. Having spent some time studying sports therapy, he now sees how years of poor posture doing tech support sat in front of a PC can be corrected and makes it fun doing so.
