Great start to lessons: my learning needs are not clearly defined and linear but Monalee was able to guide and improvise through clever listening at each moment of the lesson. Clear material had been prepared but as this was our first session together the flexibility mentioned above was all important.
Are you struggling with an academic essay? Do you want to take your work to a grade A? I am a master crafter and I can help! I will coach you into producing top quality work that is eloquently and well written. I can support you on your way to the excellence you seek. I will work with you to improve the content quality of your work as well as the grammar and expression.
Ever wondered about life in Jamaica beyond the lights of Kingston’s allure? This class offers an ethnographic journey of practises and cultures in rural Jamaica, illustrated through photos, songs and videos. Let's explore life in rural Jamaica! Born and raised in a remote rural district/village, I will take you on an authentic journey of first hand experiences- reliving fond childhood memories, the stories my grandmother told me and what a typical day is like. This will be grounded in the history and culture of Jamaica. Coming from a background in diplomacy, sharing about Jamaica's culture and historical experiences has always been essential for opening the door to a deeper unerstanding. I have an avid interest in other cultures and always take the time to explore wherever I go. Having been to South and Central America, Asia, North America and Europe, I know the unique value of such rich experiences. Whenever I was home-sick while posted abroad, talking about my homeland was the only cure. I will share with you all there is about living in rural Jamaica, from different perspectives of my childhood, teenage years and adult life. One unique bit is that the district's enduring small farms form the centrepiece around which everything revolves. Come prepared with a curious mind, and if you want to make notes take your pen and paper or do so on your devices. It is important for me that your are learning, so I encourage you to ask questions. Let's go beyond Kington's enigma!
Your age doesn't matter! I welcome everyone. If you have kids I can accompany them during play time to speak in the language as well. I also do accompaniment of adults to real life settings, brining the language to life. For example I can accompany you to the supermarket or the pharmacy etc and we speak in English or Spanish to bring your language learning to life. Languages open the door to opportunities. Give yourself the opportunity to discover the world and new experiences by learning a new language or by improving your fluency. I can help you and I will be there with you every step of the way. You will learn tips and tricks to grasp English or Spanish more quickly and I will share my experiences to help you learn. Learn from the comfort of your home with me there, or via webcam.

Storytelling. Starting point of a good story or script.
Stories are as old as we are, but if you want to put a story on paper or portray a story, it turns out to be more difficult than talking to your friends. How about now? Not what you tell, but HOW you tell it is the most important. The basics and how to use psychology to write a story, this is what you will learn anyway. Those who want to continue afterwards will learn how to write a script. Fiction or facts, you decide what you want to learn.

Video Editing Training Course or audacity and equivalent programs - Just for fun or become a professional!
Editing video can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it. But however complex you want the final product to be, you will find the process far more enjoyable if you take a few moments to prepare from the very beginning, preferably before you even start to record any footage. Conclusion. Video editing is important because it is the key to blending images and sounds to make us feel emotionally connected and sometimes truly there in the film we're watching. It's a safe assumption to say that video editing is among the most important jobs in the film industry.

A glorious journey into poetry: creative writing and learning
My classes involve a mixture of discovering poetry in its diverse forms and responding to writing exercises. All activities have the aim of expanding the student's personal relationship with this incredible art form and developing their power to self-express creatively. We will look at how poetry continues to challenge the status quo and can act as a space for connection, emotional healing and rebirth in climates of limitation and struggle. I am passionate about teaching poetry writing because I have seen how beneficial the sharing and crafting of poetry is for mental health; I want to bring this passion into people's lives and am as excited to learn from each student's insights and creations as I am to impart knowledge and feedback. I am an experienced tutor and published poet with a first-class honours degree in English and Spanish from Durham University. My anthology "Poems of Hope" on the subject of mental health, was published in 2019 to fundraise for Mind UK. In October 2021 I am starting a part-time postgraduate course in teaching creative writing with Cambridge University to complement writing and teaching. I have 5+ years of experience tutoring English and have devised and delivered poetry workshops for vulnerable adults as well as tutored creative writing throughout the pandemic. I have also spent a year working with SEN students in secondary education as a teaching assistant. I welcome teenagers and adults who identify as neurodivergent, disabled or struggling with mental health. I hope to hear from you and look forward to journeying into poetry together.

Learn to write better, expand your creativity and strengthen your ability to express yourself.
Writing is communicating. Language represents you and says a lot about you, even those things that you did not know. While the spoken words are blown away by the wind, the written word remains in time, which is why, when expressing our ideas and putting them into shape, it is important to remember that what is written is never understood in the same way as what is spoken. If when writing I make a mistake, the reader will internalize a message different from the one we wanted to convey, because the message is not what I want to say, it is what I say. Here, you will learn to consciously use language as a tool to represent yourself. You will gain confidence and expand your level of expression and this will positively impact your personal and professional development. My classes are personalized; I consider that each person is unique, which is why I adapt to the needs of each person. The objective is to achieve meaningful learning within a relaxed and unstructured dynamic. Go ahead!
