Hello! I am James and I am excited to join the UKVS team as a Classics teacher. I studied Classics and I am passionate about Latin, Greek and all things Classics!

I have over twenty years’ experience of teaching, and for the last seven years I was head of Classics at Dubai College, where I established a now-flourishing Classics department from scratch. I have also worked as a policy analyst for both the UK and the New Zealand governments.

I love to spend time outdoors, and in the mountains in particular. I enjoy hiking, via ferrata and wild camping. I also run and play tennis. I am learning Italian and I am determined to finish my TV comedy series script this year!
