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.

Benoit
Private Maths Lessons - Limoges or Online - Qualified and Experienced Mathematics Teacher
I am a qualified and experienced private math teacher. Graduated from the Free University of Brussels in 2011, I started my career giving remedial courses in different schools in Brussels. I then specialized in individual tutoring by following a pedagogical training from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I have been giving private math lessons daily for almost 10 years. Pleasantly surprised by the impact of my lessons on the school career of my students, in 2018 I created Math Coaching, an online tutoring platform. The platform provides students around the world with quality educational content focused on making math learning easier. The students who follow my private lessons benefit from personalized support. The first session is devoted to an in-depth assessment of the student's mathematical knowledge. The objective is to detect its weak points and understand their origin in order to adapt my courses to its needs. I develop a tailor-made remediation program for each of my students aimed at filling each of their gaps. Over the course of the sessions, the student builds a solid foundation for learning and regains self-confidence. At the same time, I help him acquire a work methodology that allows him to gradually become autonomous in his studies. I have a perfect knowledge of the mathematics program of the College and the High School (from the Sixth to the Terminale). During my formative years, I studied and developed many techniques that make it easier to learn math. The strength of my pedagogical approach lies in my ability to explain in a simple way everything that the student finds complicated. I am passionate about this job because it gives me the opportunity to guide dropout students on the path to success. It is a real pleasure to see them evolve and come to terms with the fantastic world of mathematics. I give my private lessons in Limoges (at the student's home) or remotely (by internet). My distance learning courses take place on an interactive online whiteboard. This table is specially designed to promote student / teacher interaction on the internet. Thanks to this educational tool, my online courses are as effective as home courses. The student only needs an internet connection and a computer, a tablet, or a smartphone to use it.

School support: optimize your study and improve your working method
My name is Serdane and I offer courses in work methods and study assistance to students who have trouble finding a way of working that suits them. After high school in the Latin-Grec-Math option in Saint-Boniface, I completed a double bilingual baccalaureate (Fr.-Eng.) Law (completed June 2015) and economics (completed June 2017) at the Saint-Louis University, then a Master in Law at UCL (completed June 2018) including an Erasmus in German at the University of Vienna (February-June 2018). This varied career allowed me to develop a solid working method. I gained significant experience during my university career by giving many courses to high school students. These years of experience in school support have allowed me to develop a methodology adapted to the needs and profile of the student. My rate includes full tuition (private lessons, the ability to ask questions outside of class time, writing and correcting questions, etc.). Looking forward to reading you!

*New* English with qualified British Teacher (native speaker): Friendly, Informative, Effective English Language Lessons (online via Skype)
Hello, I am a qualified native British English teacher, with a passion for helping people improve their English in a friendly, relaxed, collaborative way. I can help you increase your competence, and confidence, in both general and business English. Everybody has different language learning needs, therefore, your lesson will be tailored to meet your individual requirements. You may feel that you need to improve your listening comprehension, or extend your vocabulary; fine tune your pronunciation, or enhance your written and spoken grammar; boost your confidence in public speaking or feel comfortable with social conversation. Together we will identify your areas of priority and get you to where you want to be. I have a clear speaking voice, with no regional accent – which learners find easy to understand, and a friendly collaborative approach, rather than a dictatorial teaching style. I am learning French (my level is B2), so I know from personal experience that learning a new language can be challenging. Sometimes we feel we have reached a plateau and feel disheartened. In these situations, we need somebody who will be patient and take time to help us. I also know how frustrating it can be when we find it difficult to find the nuances that help us to express ourselves fluently. I understand. I will help you progress. It is natural to be nervous when learning to speak another language, but I promise not to scare you! I will help you overcome those nerves and develop confidence & competence in the areas that you need it most. I have the necessary pedagogy to help you with grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, listening skills and the varied styles of writing. (TEFL qualified with Distinction, 150-hour course). I also have 29 years’ experience in public speaking and giving presentations, so if you need to practice those skills in English I can help you with that. If you choose to learn with me, our first session will focus on identifying the following: • your language learning goals • your reasons for learning English • your language learning needs • your preferred method of learning • the amount of time you have allocated to studying English I look forward to working with you!
