Academic Director – Alex Gray

Alex is the Academic Director at Greene’s, and the senior manager responsible for the interviewing, recruitment, continuing training and management of Greene’s tutors.  He is based in the Study Centre (97a, St. Aldate’s), and works closely with the College Principal, Directors of Studies and Course Administrator to ensure the consistency and high quality of the tutors.

Alex read for a Masters in Mathematics at Magdalen College, the University of Oxford (where he was a scholar) before going on to undertake research in Mathematical Physics, specialising, in particular, in the geometry of space-times that locally resemble doughnuts (known mathematically as tori).  He has taught and tutored extensively at sixth form, undergraduate and Masters level.  A passionate believer in the unique advantages of the Oxford tutorial method, he still tutors for the College whenever his schedule permits.

Alex’s educational research interests lie in the effective use of new and emerging technologies to support and enhance the learning process and he directs the development of Greene’s cutting edge, cloud-based student online learning resource, Greene’s Online.  In his spare time Alex enjoys croquet, British polyphonic music of the early renaissance and hiking in the Alps.
