I am a freelance architectural and spatial designer with a strong background in architecture, fine art, interior and spatial design. I have been tutoring since 2018 and then worked with over twenty students in a wide range of creative disciplines
I began tutoring in 2018. Since then I have tutored students for a broad range of portfolio-based and creative courses, focussing on Architecture, Fine Art, Design and Interior Design courses. I worked with students from 11 and 13+ Art scholarships through to BA and MA level. A focus of my tutoring has been assisting students with preparing their portfolios for entry to a breadth of Art and Design courses at the UK's leading art schools. I aim to build students technical and conceptual understanding of creative processes. My lessons are immersive and driven by student's portfolios and interests.

"Valeria tutored me throughout the final year of my BA in Interior and Spatial Design. She helped me develop the concepts for my design coursework and gave me excellent advice on how to clearly present my portfolio. Valeria really built my confidence and enabled me to shine in the final crit" - Alisa, previous student Interior and Spatial Design. "I've been working with Valeria since September 2020 and could not recommend her more highly. Valeria's deep understanding of the principles of urban planning and site analysis has given me a great foundation for my design project. I'm really enjoying lessons with her." - Mathew, current student 1st Year MA Architecture. "Superb tutor! Valeria has been helping my daughter, Leila, prepare her portfolio for Art Foundation courses. She has a brilliant first-hand knowledge of the UK's art schools and what is required for each course. Valeria worked closely with Leila on her portfolio and gave her detailed advice on how to develop a breadth of artistic techniques. Leila got her offer from Central St Martin's, we are so grateful to Valeria"- Aisha, mother of current student Art A-Level.
