Avec son calme, Monalee a su de suite cibler mes besoins
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.
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.
Let’s crack the thesis writing code! Are you struggling with structuring your thesis and main arguments? The words « theoretical framework » frighten you? Need help to develop and substantiate your arguments? I have helped many students like yourself and I can help you. I will work with step by step to produce your best quality work. I will work with you to improve content, grammar and expression. Let your thesis be a représentation of your true potential!
A powerful CV that communicates who you are us the best gift to yourself in the professional world. Let me help you craft the best version of yourself on paper! From there I will work with you to develop targeted interview skills. You no longer need to miss out on amazing job opportunities. Stop struggling preparing alone! Let me help you.

My methods are based on listening, dialog and creativity: they adjust to match your needs, goals and interests may you be looking for help with academic French at school, conversational French, or writing tips (you name it!) You can count on lots of videos, podcasts, articles, songs, fiction and non fiction texts, photos, art pieces, social media posts, TV series, etc. as well as oral and written homemade exercises, tests, etc. to go on at your own pace with autonomy. I am there to make you feel comfortable and confident and help you reveal your linguistic and literary skills in a relaxed and playful atmosphere. Your questions, doubts and mistakes will be the engine of the classes. I studied Modern Literature and Creative Writing in Paris and I have tutored students of all ages and proficiency since 2017.

Reading & Writing Skills, Maths & English Language
Before I begin the Reading & Writing, Maths or English Language tutoring, I assess the child's needs and talk to them and their parents about the support that they would like. I aim to make my sessions as interesting and creative as possible to engage the children and ensure effective learning. The session is spent primarily with me teaching or working through a problem with a child. There's little to no benefit in a child working tirelessly through a task independently with me just sitting watching! As a father, a football coach and a former student with two A*s (one in Further Mathematics) and 5 A grades in my GCSEs (one in English Language), I understand how difficult it can be to support your own child in their learning. I will therefore also support with school homework and extra reading when required.

Cinematic culture / acting for screen - theory and practice
Arts are essential in an individual's personal development. Some people find their way alone, and some have to opportunity to be guided, encouraged and pushed by someone who has been in the industry for years. To be taking this kind of course with me will consist in laying a strong foundation of knowledge in domains such as literature, performing arts and cinema, equaled by practice. However, considering that I will be working with young people, I will not bring to my class rules and techniques. Everyone has different interests and strengths and I intend to discover it, dig into and flourish their specific needs. Each student will have their own personalized schedule / training.
