When studying Classics, Xavi specialised in Latin Literature with a particular focus on Cicero, Sallustius, Caesar and Vergilius.
Scott Xavi Gudrich MA MSc
Xavi obtained his MA (Distinction) in Classics with a specialisation on Latin Literature at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität in Freiburg, Germany, where he studied under renowned academics like historian Hans-Joachim Gehrke and Latinist Bernhard Zimmermann. His thesis on the portrayal of Catiline by Cicero and Sallustius was awarded an A-grade (German grade 1.3) by Gesine Manuwald, now Head of Department of Greek and Latin at UCL.
He has 15 years experience teaching Latin, both in presential and online courses.
Xavi's roots are in the UK, Catalonia and Germany and he speaks English, Catalan and German fluently. His years spent living in Catalonia, right in the middle of what once was the Roman Empire, have installed in him not only an academic but also an emotional connection to the subject matter.
He is an enthusiastic and friendly teacher who has been described as a real "Mr. Motivator" and who loves passing on his excitement to his students.
