Alexander graduated from the University of Leicester with a 2:1 degree in Law and later completed a mathematics conversion course and mathematics PGCE at Bath Spa University. He previously worked in the United Kingdom as the Head of Mathematics at a secondary school in Hampshire.

He loves working with young people and has a passion for inspiring others. He enjoys developing reasoning and problem solving skills with those he teaches and can’t wait to show others the beauty of mathematics.

He likes the outdoors, staying active and trying new things. He is also a keen DIYer and has spent many summers in the UK renovating his Victorian house. Alexander is moving to the UK with his wife Jade.
