Greetings, welcome to the Forums.

Monstera in the Aroid Family (Araceae) will not root from leaf tissue. You will need to use stem tissue in order to successfully propagate Monstera cuttings. Make sure that each cutting has at least one node. Nodes are the areas on a stem where there is or formerly was a leaf.

Greetings Marck... thank you so much so for the reply. Do you have experience with this type of plant? Can I post a pic on here as to where I should cut? I don't want to ruin the plant.

By all means, do a post a pic. The difference between a Monstera stem and leaf petiole (leaf-stem) is straight-forward once you know the difference. However, if the plant is still small and only has a short stem and a few leaves, it might be best to wait before propagating.
