PhD student tutoring in Newcastle. Italian and Portuguese speaker. Specialized in chemistry and cultural heritage studies.

Methodology

About myself: Valentina, Italian, almost 30yo, in UK since 2015. I used to live in London, working for the V&A museum. I also lived in Portugal and Brasil. I am friendly and very patient , extremely organised and open minded.
About my studies: I studied BSc and MSc in Chemistry applied to the cultural heritage. i.e. all the knowlege one need to be the analyst in museums' labs. My PhD is about the analysis of historical coating on V&A plaster casts from the 19th century.
Why I want to tutor: I like it and I need to top up my wallet! ;)
