Monica specializes in providing bespoke private tuition of the highest standard and has an impressive track record in preparing students for entry to Britain’s top schools.

Tailoring one-to-one sessions from 7+ to A Level to suit individual needs and learning styles, Monica adopts a highly personalised approach. 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.

Jack
Learn English for all levels of experience from 'Hello' to 'Goodbye' and everything in-between
Hello, my name is Jack, a native English speaker originally from Manchester, England. I have experience teaching English as a second language both online to students in China.And in schools in Italy. I have a diploma in International Business Management from Northumbria University, and studied abroad in Sweden and Portugal and therefore know how important and daunting learning a language can be. I specialise in teaching English as a second language. My aim is to be the lessons fun and engaging. Depending on what you want to learn we can focus on grammar, sentence structure, building vocabulary of a particular topic or start at the basics learning phonics. If you would like support and tutoring on homework or topics you are studying in school I can support students with this and help them achieve in school. I can also teach Business English and help you prepare for a presentation or interview or help with your studies. My class would be perfect for either adults or children wanting to improve their oral and written English skills. Each class will be personalised to your needs and abilities with the first class used to evaluate your level and how we can best use further classes to improve your abilities and see results.

Professor of National Education, author of school textbook, 25 years of experience.
***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: from college to post-baccalaureate through high school. => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.

French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The pupil will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, to argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and to enrich his vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.

English for beginners , learn to speak english with me via webcam
English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca. Named after the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes that migrated to England, it ultimately derives its name from the Anglia (Angeln) peninsula in the Baltic Sea. It is closely related to the Frisian languages, but its vocabulary has been significantly influenced by other Germanic languages, particularly Norse (a North Germanic language), as well as by Latin and Romance languages, especially French. English is the third most widespread native language in the world, after Standard Chinese and Spanish. It is the most widely learned second language and is either the official language or one of the official languages in almost 60 sovereign states. There are more people who have learned it as a second language than there are native speakers. English is the most commonly spoken language in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand, and it is widely spoken in some areas of the Caribbean, Africa and South Asia. So as you can see we widely need to speak english in nowadays , it's necessary once you are abroad and don't speak the language of the country . Let's start together to learn english , step by step we'll achieve to highest result. I am experienced french teacher , but I also teach english for beginners , armenian , russian and dutch for beginners . I am waiting for you my lovely students

Valentin
ENGLISH course - become fluent in English, communicate in English without prejudice
Actor of formation having lived abroad (London and Toronto), I love English and I would like everyone to know how to speak it! There is indeed a delay in France with respect to English, which is remembered is spoken worldwide and is the first language of communication! And this comes mainly from the lack of confidence in the oral. That is why with you I will work above all on the ease and the confidence but also on the pronunciation and the rhythm.
