Ms Yiota Kontoloucas founded the English Learning Centre in 1992, two years after having moved to Cyprus from London with her husband and three young daughters.
Born and educated in London, Ms Yiota taught at two secondary schools in central London where, in the latter, she had worked as Head of the English Department.
She still remembers starting out the English Learning Centre with great excitement in a two-roomed shop. That very first year, 14 students and their parents turned up, putting their trust in the vision of Ms Yiota.
Her three daughters gradually joined her and very quickly brought their own updated vision and creative energy into our school.
Moving thirty years on, the I became a We and Maria, Georgina, Elena and Ms. Yiota jointly run a school that houses more than 17 classrooms, a team of over 18 teachers and which, over the years, has cultivated the dreams and aspirations of countless of children.
Testament to the love and passion we poured into our work here at the English Learning Centre, many of our former students continue to bring their own children to the English Learning Centre and this is the greatest reward for any education provider.
