Our Team

Leigh Otterson-Walter – Managing Director

Leigh Otterson-Walter was born in South Africa, where she lived until she was nineteen years old. Leigh lead a fairly nomadic life as a child, moving from town to town due to her father’s work, and became very adaptable to both change, and new surroundings from an early age.

Alex Walter – Director

After finishing university where he studied Chemistry with Management Studies, Alex embarked on a career for a multinational American travel and finance company. However, in his late 20’s he went back to studying to embark on a career change to work in healthcare.

Crystal Weber – Director of Education

Crystal was born and raised in rural British Columbia, Canada where she was known to cross-country ski to school, toboggan down rooftops and luge down mountainsides. Her family eventually moved into civilization, where she completed an undergraduate degree in English Literature, with a minor in Psychology, as well as an Associate’s degree in General Arts.

Tommaso Walter – Director of Customer Happiness

Tommy joined our team in 2015 and works mainly in the office, although he does enjoy taking part in our more ‘outdoor’ activities and making new friends. In his spare time he likes to make the most of the English countryside, muddy puddles and chasing squirrels.  Tommy is more of a listener than a teacher, but is of great help to those wanting to practice their English Language skills without interruption.
