Alex has been teaching English language and literature for the last 12 years, firstly in Jakarta for 8 years before Lima and Istanbul. Alex loves to teach, especially literature, and in particular enjoys the challenge of developing each course to fit the students studying it. Experiencing a diverse range of students has allowed for continual learning and development of teaching practices and Alex is now excited about joining Britannica and seeing how the students there engage with and develop his teaching skillset.

When not teaching Alex likes to relax with his wife. An avid reader and terrible poet, Alex also obsesses over Scottish football.
