Alex brings a lot of humour to his teaching and to the team in general. He has a real empathy for the children he teaches and an understanding of the different ways that they learn and experience languages having twice had to learn new languages himself at a young age. He loves quoting in Latin and is passionate about Roman history and its enduring legacy in Western literature and culture. Alongside his teaching he tutors children of all ages in English, Spanish and maths and writes for a number of online and print publications. Alex says "Being able to fully express yourself with language is the closest you'll get to having a super power".
