Anthony encourages his students to develop their creativity and express their individuality assuming that every personality is interesting. He loves to teach about French culture as he is convinced that language and culture are inseparable. In addition to his professional interests, he is keen on history, politics, nature, music, and cinema, and enjoys traveling to explore new cultures.

Anthony believes a teacher’s mission is not only to impart knowledge but also to unlock each child’s potential, opening up more opportunities for their future. As Epictetus said, tantum eruditi sunt liberi (“Only the educated are free”).
