Adept at quickly establishing a student’s strengths, weaknesses and aspirations, Monica endows her pupils with the confidence, knowledge and skills they require to achieve outstanding academic success.

Whether it is to prepare for a specific examination or to progress in general learning, being tutored by Monica is a rewarding, enriching experience, the benefits of which will last for years to come.

Education

Monica was educated at Wimbledon High School. between the ages of 8 and 18. She then went on to obtain her first degree, BA Hons 2(i), in English Literature, after which she did a post-graduate in Law.

Experience / Qualifications

Monica was privately educated at Wimbledon High School GPDST before gaining a 2 (i) Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature at the University of Hull, followed by a post-graduate degree in Law from the College of Law. This has given her a background in academic rigour and discipline that she is able to pass on to her students.

After qualifying as a solicitor, Monica practised international shipping law for seven years which involved considerable global travel. She has also worked as a banker and international PA, and in the theatre as an actress and director, which has provided her with a number of different skills and experiences that she can draw on when tutoring children.

Brought up in Paris and London, Monica is fluent in French and English. Her father was a linguist and her mother a broadcaster, actress and artist. This gives her an interesting, international background which is of invaluable importance in enabling her to develop well-rounded, cultured, impeccably educated children.

Monica has several years’ experience in providing bespoke private tuition in diverse subjects to pupils of all ages. Most notably, she has successfully prepared children of different nationalities for entrance to Britain’s premier schools, from Winchester, Eton and Harrow, to City of London, Westminster and St. Paul’s.

Monica has provided tuition in many parts of the globe including Russia, Europe, China, Hong Kong and the United States. She has tutored international students in a variety of residential contexts, as well as children of VIP parents. Monica has travelled with some of these families as a private tutor and although her main focus has usually been the children’s studies, Monica has accompanied her charges on organised activities, taking them on cultural tours, museum, theatrical and musical visits.

In a home environment, Monica provides lessons in English, History, Maths, Art, History of Art, French, Drama, Verbal and Non-verbal Reasoning. She offers advice on homework assignments; prepares children for specific tests and examinations; and assists with interview techniques for Britain’s major schools. Having worked in the theatre, she can help with elocution, enabling students to attain immaculate ‘received pronunciation’.

Monica has specialist experience of working with children of different backgrounds and cultures and has worked with students suffering from dyslexia, autism and multiple sclerosis.

With the parents’ cooperation, Monica is practised in establishing firm boundaries for children. Able to appreciate the importance of giving encouragement and praise when deserved, she is patient and approachable, and offers unstinting support. This enables her to develop strong bonds with her students.

Oxford & Cambridge University Interview Prep Course
Have you been invited to interview at Oxford or Cambridge this coming autumn? Congratulations! Oxbridge interviews are the make-or-break stage in acceptance into one of these two top-tier universities, and they require a significant amount of preparation and know-how in order to succeed. Having successfully secured a place for myself to study English Language & Literature at the University of Oxford in 2015, and having been subsequently invited to pursue a Master's degree in English literature on scholarship, I am versed in the intricacies and expectations of the interview process for a range of disciplines. I work with students across a series of sessions to hone their understanding of what's expected of them during the interview process, to identify their particular strengths and improve on their weakness, and to practice extemporaneous speaking and timed essay-writing and test-taking. Each course is designed with the candidate in mind, and I can outline a recommended number of sessions and their contents based on an initial session.

Roberto
Private programming tutor: Interview preparation in Javascript, Python, C++
Professional software engineer with 6 years of experience. I offer private lessons to improve your success rate at programming competitions and code challenges. For many aspiring professional programmers, solving a code challenge successfully can be the toughest part of an interview, and it can make the difference between passing to the next round of interviews or being passed on. This can seem daunting and scary; and let's face it, most of the time it doesn't even reflect the work that you will be doing on a daily basis. But that is the way companies filter candidates. So, for your career's sake, it's more practical to just learn to play the game. We will practice: - Timed excercises - Mock interviews - Pair programming sessions - Whiteboard mock interviews The specific learning path depends on your particular experience, aspiring position and chosen language. I can help you with: - C++ - Javascript / Typescript - Python - C# Classes given in English or Spanish.
