Adam Marvel is responsible for developing and setting up Kings Colleges locations throughout the US. As acting Director of Kings LA, he oversees all aspects of the college and works with students to give them the best possible educational and social experience while in Hollywood.
“I started in international education as a Peace Corps volunteer for two years in Ukraine teaching business and marketing at a university. Upon returning to the US., I began managing a language school in Seattle and enjoyed developing programmes that helped international students succeed in the US higher education system. I’m thrilled to be working with Kings to take their same high standards from their UK colleges and apply those in new US locations.
Kings Los Angeles is truly an amazing college. I have managed other language schools in the LA area before and can honestly say Kings is quite unique. The location in Hollywood is exceptional, having a stand-alone building with indoor-outdoor space captures the essence of LA living, and the way we’re developing programmes that incorporate the entertainment industry surrounding the college is exciting.
Outside of work, I spend a lot of time hiking and camping up and down the west coast, cooking, and working on home remodeling/design. I also play the drums and a few other musical instruments and have a diverse taste in music. All great hobbies and interests for the LA area and am happy to help students explore these and other interests in LA!”
