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.

Support course, homework help or methodology
Currently a first year student of the International Master in Architecture at KU Leuven as well as a correspondence student in the second year of the Research Master in Philosophy, I propose to help your child with his homework (simple follow-up, methodological and editorial help etc.) and this at primary as well as secondary. I have been giving private lessons in France for 4 years and my university career has allowed me to acquire methodological skills in a large number of subjects: - Scientific Baccalaureate 2015 - Preparatory class for the grandes écoles (Letters / social sciences / mathematics) 2015 - 2017 / Under-eligible for the Normal Superior School - Double license (3rd year) Philosophy - Social Sciences (Paris I Sorbonne - Paris X Dauphine), mention Bien 2017 - 2018 - Bachelor of Architecture (2nd and 3rd year) National School of Architecture of Nantes, mention Bien 2018 - 2020 - Research Master in Philosophy by distance learning Paris IX Nanterre, 2019-2021 - International Master of Architecture KU Leuven, 2020-2022 I speak French (native), English (C1), Spanish (B2). My methodology evolves according to the needs and difficulties of the students. For fairly regular support, such as homework help, I usually set up a file writing system which allows students to structure their work and to be able to revise even after I have left. For more methodological advice I also adapt to the student. Thus, there may be joint writing or corrections of work done in class. On the other hand I am very available for my students, I respond quickly by email if necessary, I can also make corrections or revision documents from my home in order to complete the sessions with your child.

Brian
English, History, Politics and Personal Statement Tutoring
I am offering tutoring for subjects such as English, History and Politics with a particular emphasis on essays, applications and drafting skills. Formulating a written argument that is both succinct and coherent is a crucial skill for any discipline but it is especially useful for subjects such as english, history and politics. I believe that anybody is capable of writing well and my classes are designed to improve a student's structure, vocabulary and syntax. The class is designed for a broad range of students who may be looking for help on a particular project, application or simply want to improve their writing skills. My classes are not overly prescriptive and I am willing to adapt my teaching methods to a student's particular needs and objectives. Ultimately, my aim is for students to develop their writing skills and become stronger communicators.

Luca Dino
Italian, History, History of art and grammar teacher
Italian is a beautiful language, but like all languages, to learn it, you need to practice it with grammar exercises, reading, and above all, speaking. Through my lessons, you can learn through an alternative approach, deepening historical and cultural insights, and of course, grammar. My teaching philosophy is to be able to connect with students based on their passions. I can also offer lessons of history and history of arts since I hold a bachelor's degree in cultural heritage.

Hello! I'm an English student at the University of Luxembourg with the goal of becoming a teacher. I enjoy helping kids and teenagers become better at subjects they might be struggling with. By engaging the students directly and finding out their weak points as well as their strengths, I aspire to help them improve while also make their learning experience fun. As a young university student, I can empathize and communicate well with younger students especially. I offer lessons in English, German, history and maths for students in primary schools, as well as English, German and history on secondary school level. I'm available in the evenings, weekend and earlier in the day if it is required. I can do online lessons, as well as lessons at your place if you live in the south of Luxembourg.

World History- private lessons in analysis, essay writing and exam prep
I have deeply enjoyed history and historiography from high school, where I received top marks, through university, where we studied history from Australia, the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, to the present, where I still read and learn history on a regular basis. In recent years, I have particularly tried to focus on history retold from the perspective of those left out of the traditional view, which is really just anyone who isn't a white, upper-class, European male. This broader and more complex view of history leads to a more nuanced understanding of the past, particularly from a social perspective. I try to bring this knowledge to the classroom, to help the student understand history contextually and how it is shaped through an interplay of individual personalities and social, economic and political trends. I work to include as much primary evidence as possible and always encourage students to approach both primary and secondary sources critically, considering the bias and intention of the source. If I'm not familiar enough with the particular aspect of history the student is studying, I will do the necessary research to be able to help them competently. I really enjoy history and try to bring my enthusiasm, knowledge and experience to every class I teach.

Shakshi
Social Science for Class IX & X (CBSE)- anyone who is struggling to grasp the concepts, this class is for you.
Social Science is the building block of any student's learning career because it opens many avenues of experience. Having done bachelors in Social Science myself, I am more than eligible for taking this class. The class would not be very strict but would be a learning curve for those who want to pursue social sciences further. The class would be a give and take relationship, wherein both student and teacher contribute into getting a desired and optimum result. Thank you.

Notarianni
Law courses for beginners (L1) - Homework assistance for primary school (French, History, Mathematics...)
I am a 3th-year student in law at the University of Paris (Paris Descartes). I can do mentoring for first-year students (work method, advice, assistance for "Travaux Dirigés"...), as I was head of the year. Indeed, law studies require rigour, persistence and a very specific work method which can be shaped only by a regular work and an individual coaching. I also propose work assistance for primary school in all the subjects (French, History, Mathematics, English).
