The word Humanitas comes from the Latin translation of the Aristotelian term Paideia: a broad cultural education. ‘It’s all about looking out for the students and bringing them up as respectable members of society,’ says Alex Sever, co-founder of Humanitas with Katie Badgett. ‘We form a long term relationship with pupils and families. We tutor children who are three or four, and we can stay with them right up to age 18 and beyond.’ Sever entered the teaching profession in 2009, and has tutored extensively to clients both in the UK and abroad, specialising in entrance to the UK’s leading private schools and universities, while also preparing graduates for applications to leading global banks.
