Hi, I'm Carola Maria

Hi everyone, My name is Carola and I am originally from Italy. Travelling has always been a passion, and after an exchange programme in Vancouver (Canada) I decided to move to London. I recently graduates with a 1st in Biomedical Science from QMUL and I will start Medicine at Barts this September. I have been tutouring all levels (from elementary school to adult learner) in a variety of subjects. I am an ambitious and curious student, so be sure that if I don't know how to answer one of your questions, I will make sure to do some reseacher and let you know as soon as possible!
