Ali joined Action Tutoring in February 2017 as the Programme Coordinator for Sussex. Packing up and leaving peaceful village life in leafy Hertfordshire, he moved into the foreboding urban metropolis that is the city of Brighton.
Ali graduated from the University of Leeds in 2016 with a degree in Economics. During this time he developed an interest in social mobility and the disadvantages faced by society’s most deprived. Working with young people in Hackney via Envision’s community apprentice scheme and teaching English with the Refugee Council inspired him to get involved with education.
When not captaining the tightly run, majestic ship that is the Sussex component of Action Tutoring, Ali prides himself on his vast array of quirky hobbies and personal interests ranging from cooking and swimming to juggling and salsa dancing.
