Alex is a positive and warm individual who looks to bring out the best in his pupils, instilling them with a confidence they perhaps didn’t know they had through patience and perseverance. His nurturing approach enables pupils of all personalities to feel encouraged and determined to succeed. He studied at University College School in Hampstead where he received 5A*s, 4As and a B at GCSE, 3 As and a B at AS Level (in English, Latin, Greek and French respectively) and 2 As and a B at A Level. He then went on to receive a BA in English Literature and Classics from Newcastle University. He teaches the 7+, 11+ and 13+ exams, English, French and Latin.
When not tutoring Alex works as a Casting Director, searching for undiscovered talent in a different field of work. He’s worked on TV shows such as Liar, Marcella, Death Comes To Pemberley and Safe House. In his spare time he enjoys going to the theatre, playing a number of different sports and endlessly trying to keep up with the best TV shows available. He’s also working to finish his first novel.
