Sahvan Karia

pronouns: he/him 

Sahvan joined Action Tutoring as the HR & Operations Administrator in April 2022. In his role, Sahvan supports the wider team and makes sure everything run smoothly.

Sahvan graduated from the University of Warwick with a degree in Philosophy, with an intercalated year spent studying at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.

Since then, Sahvan has fostered a passion for education by holding a variety of roles within the industry. These experiences have ranged from the more formal time spent in the classroom to teaching practical skills outdoors, from working with children to adults, and from designing curriculum content to developing and mentoring teachers. His most significant learning experiences to date came from holding the dual positions of Programme Coordinator and Faculty Manager (FM) for an after-school education company in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Having spent a lot of time working on a character-trait based model of learning, Sahvan is a strong advocate for social-emotional development within the classroom. And this is what has particularly drawn Sahvan to the work being done by Action Tutoring. The impact that personalised attention can have on a student is invaluable, particularly for those from disadvantaged backgrounds, with numerous more opportunities for teachers to naturally foster student development through their interpersonal and student-centred interactions.
