Information about Monica

Highly experienced working teacher/examiner ,100% grades A*-C for GCE and grades 4-9 for GCSE, with 80% of tutees consistently reaching the upper bands. All levels catered for. DBS checked.

As I am qualified and experienced to teach four subjects: English literature and language, Drama/Theatre Studies, French and German, up to and including A level, I am in a position to offer students on alternate weeks tutoring in two or three subjects if required.

I have been teaching at secondary and university level for almost 25 years,my secondary school experience ranges from state schools to prestigious independent. I am an Edexcel GCE examiner and hold upper threshold status. Despite being a trained secondary teacher, I have in recent years had great success preparing students for 11 and 13 plus English exams, one such student won the English scholarship to attend Harrow public school.

Lessons are created to meet the exact requirements of the examining board the student is following and or their precise learning needs. Students with special needs and or English not as a first language, can also be catered for. Homework is given and is expected to be completed.

In the first instance parents should email me to arrange a time to discuss how I can help their child. Testimonials, qualifications, DBS and proof of upper threshold status are available on request.

Availability: I teach week day evenings and Saturday mornings. Until COVID 19 is no longer a threat I am conducting all lessons virtually using a mix of technologies which students of any age adapt well to.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: Published academic with over twenty five years experience working as a teacher in state and independent secondary schools and at university level.

Holder of current DBS and child protection certificates

Monica is an excellent teacher, extremely inspiring andmotivating. She not only makes the subject she teaches interesting,she also inspires her students to do well. She is kind, patient and flexible. Both my children whom she tutored received A grades in GCSE and A level English Language and Literature.
My son was struggling with French GCSE and she pushed him from a C grade to an A within 3months! Monica is easily the best teacher I have come across who achieves results. I would wholeheartedly recommend her as a tutor.

Monica has been teaching my two sons in Yr 10 and Yr 11 since Sep 2018. Monica is very thorough in both English Language and English Literature and both my sons are benefiting from her teaching technique and doing lots of exam questions practice. In fact she was able to predict a question on my sons English Literature GCSE, which he had practised with her, so he was very pleased when he saw the question in the exam!
Monica has very clear agreements in place on cancellation or rescheduling of lessons, which benefits everyone and ensures the student gains the maximum from private tuition.
I would definitely recommend Monica as a private tutor.

Monica has tutored both my son and daughter through GCSE and A Level English. She Supported my son, building his confidence to achieve Grade A at A level. She is passionate and committed to her pupils. She brings the subject to life through discussion and debate. I have employed the services of several tutors over the years and Monica has been by far my best investment.

My daughter has had 5 sessions with Monica so far and is very happy with her teaching methods. Monica is both patient and caring in her approach to lessons which helps to instill confidence in her students. She also thoroughly prepares for each session with numerous print outs for the student to work on in her sessions and take home. She also give very helpful tips and technics of how to best approach exams. I would highly recommend Monica.

I was delighted when Monica agreed to tutor my son. Now, after the first few lessons, I am over the moon. I have a noticed a marked improvement in his English and I am certain his progress will continue. She is extremely friendly and goes out of her way to accommodate mine and my sons requirements. Thank you

I generally don’t write any feedbacks, however Monica was so exceptional I could not resist writing about my experience. From the time I started the enquiry with Tutor hunt about an English/German teacher for my son (for his GCSE), Monica was very polite, prompt and very professional in her replies. When I met her on the first day, her smiling face and the warm welcoming attitude reassured me that I have not only found a teacher, but a great person. When she finished her first lesson where she allowed me to sit through the whole period, I could see that she knew exactly what to do and immediately came up with an action plan to address how best to fit the lessons to achieve the best results. I have come across many teachers before, but not all of them have the knack to teach and to identify where the student could improve. I really felt a sigh of relief when I came out of her lovely house that finally I have found a great teacher. Many teachers have qualifications and experience but in my view, teaching itself is an art and she has mastered that to highest degree. My son thoroughly enjoys his classes. Thank you very much Tutor hunt for introducing Monica and I have no hesitation in recommending Monica!
