My name is Monica and I am Italian. I have been living in the United Kingdom since 1985.
I live in Ashford in Kent, however I am prepared to travel to London as it is only 30 minutes by train.
I have a university degree BA 2.1 in modern foreign languages studies as well as a teaching qualification. I can speak: Italian, English, Spanish and French.
I work full time in a secondary school in Kent as a cover teacher across the curriculum and I also work part-time as a language tutor in Spanish, Italian and French language. I work with young students who may need help and support for their GCSE and A level languages as well as with adults, who might want to learn a language for different purposes.
I work as a tutor every day after school (3.30) as well as Saturdays mornings.
Availability: As explained above, I am available every day after school and on Saturday morning until about one o`clock.
Willing to travel: 20 miles
Experience: I have worked in Secondary schools for the past ten and half years. During this time I have also worked for other local schools in the area delivering evening classes for Spanish and Italian language for young students as well as adults. Also, currently I work part-time tutoring students and adults in either: Spanish, Italian and French language.
Before working in Education, I have spent four and half years working within the Travel Industry as a Travel Consultant, where I was running a very busy Visitor Information Centre, providing local and national information to visitors arriving from Europe mainland (often n the foreign language).

Very good teacher. Communicates well with the student. Would 100% recommend.
Monica is a fantastic teacher. She is very friendly and funny whilst being extremely informative and knowledgeable. She has a lot of experience which is evident through the style in which she teaches. I am very happy with her classes.
The perfect tutor
My daughter seems to enjoy the lessons quite well and the tutor is not only professional but lovely too!
Tutors Response :
Hi and thank you very much for your feedback. I look forward to work with your daughter in the new year. Have a lovely holiday. Monica
Monica has made a real difference to my daughter`s knowledge and confidence after only 3 sessions
Tutors Response :
Hi Jane and thank you very much for your kind words. It is a pleasure to work with your daughter, she is very willing to learn. And now she seems to be more confident with Spanish. I look forward to,the next lesson. Monica
We and our daughter have been having lessons from Monica for some time now and are very pleased. She helped our daughter on her preparation for her GCSE Spanish (she achieved an A*) and is now working with her on her A level in Spanish. We are adult learners and although I`m a bit slow :) she`s very patient and we enjoy the lessons.
Tutors Response :
Thank you very much for your feedback.
As Jonathan says, I have been tutoring his daughter as well as Jonathan and his wife for some time.
I enjoy teaching all of you very much, you are lovely people and at the same time lots of fun to work with and I always look forward to our next session. Thank you very much again for your support with this. Monica
My Y9 daughter has only had two lessons but she finds Ms Monica more engaging than her teacher at school. Too soon to comment on progress but things are definitely moving in the right direction so we pleased thus far.
