Our Staff

All our teachers hold a university degree in the language they teach, with postgraduate degrees and many years of teaching experience. Most teachers are native speakers of the language. 

In addition to their skills and experience, the teachers have great respect for each student, are creative, have a pleasant personality and are highly motivated.

Providing high quality administrative services is a very important goal for Interlead and therefore we maintain a well-trained administration team that deals with and resolves all routine day-to-day issues so that teachers and students can focus solely on language learning.

Mrs Efi Xenopoulou Pissouriou is the Founder and Director of Interlead Language Experts as well as a Teacher of English language and Literature. Her academic qualifications include a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature, a Master’s degree (MA in Teaching English as a Foreign Language) from the University of Reading in the UK, and a Diploma in French from the University of Le Mirail in Toulouse, France.

“I think that learning can become much more effective and enjoyable if a teacher employs methods that require intense and creative participation of the student such as dialogues, educational videos, the use of computers, writing on topics that interest them, conversation.”

“All these years have shown me something that I believed in right from the start: in education you can not only think as a business. Education is a vocation and you can’t survive if you don’t honestly love what you do. And you can’t teach if you don’t build a personal relationship with a student. Only then you can open the door of teaching. The job of the teacher, in the broadest sense, for me is a title of honor and never limited to the teaching of any subject. The teacher, is above all a mentor.”

Andria P. – English Teacher

Since I can remember myself, I wanted to be an English Teacher. I graduated from the State University of New York (S.U.N.Y), faculty of English Language and Literature in 2004. As soon as I came back to Cyprus I joined the INTERLEAD team. Since then I have been teaching all levels of English to children, teens and adults. I am a highly motivated, enthusiastic, dedicated and experienced teacher who wants all of my students to be successful learners.  I constantly work to create a classroom atmosphere that is stimulating, encouraging and adaptive to the varied needs of all students. My teaching style can best be described as interactive and supportive. I promote Interactive Teaching and I motivate my students to have a voice in the classroom, ask questions and to actively participate in the learning process.  I use audio, visuals, videos, hands on demonstrations and exercises, brainstorming and pair/group activities to make my lesson interesting and interactive. I have attended many seminars and workshops for English Language Teaching and Methodology, Dyslexia and Learning Difficulties.

Eleana P. – Greek Teacher

The Greek language is the language in which many of the fundamental scientific and philosophical texts were composed. Learning Greek will help you improve your communication skills and socialize with native people. I have been teaching Modern Greek and Classical Studies (Ancient Greek, History and Latin) since 2011. I have graduated from Ionion State University, a higher educational institution in Corfu, Greece. I am also Certified by the Cyprus Committee of Certified Diplomas (ΚΥΣΑΤΣ) as a Certified Greek Philologist.

I am a very caring teacher, supporting students in any way possible to correctly assimilate the material. I focus on providing practical speaking, reading, writing and listening skills. I always try to make my class as interactive as possible by engaging students in live conversations, role play, and in creative writing and listening exercises.

I have great experience of over 9000 teaching hours of personal and group tutoring to students of various ages and nationalities at Interlead Language Experts.

Communication, for me, is a means of bridging our differences and understanding each other. Interlead has offered me the opportunity to share my knowledge in the field of creative communication. For the past five years, I have been guiding and supporting children and young teenagers to become confident and comfortable in speaking and expressing themselves in English. It has been a great honor to work with these ages as I truly believe in them and respect them. My background is an LLB from Lancaster University UK, a Diploma in Creative Arts from OCA, London and an ongoing study with Awakening to Remembering, Multi Dimensional Mastery School, Hawaii USA.

Katerina C. – English Teacher

Since graduating from University in the UK I have used my organizational and people skills to work and volunteer over three continents in the areas of education, creative arts and the environment. What connects these diverse experiences is the desire to educate and inspire and a commitment to bringing out the best in myself, and those around me. I have worked with children and young adults for over 15years. Since I moved to Cyprus I have been involved with several grass roots community groups around the island committed to creating opportunities for people to come together to improve themselves, their communities and their environment.

Having been involved in the organization of regenerative agriculture, forest gardening, and environmental education workshops for adults and children, up to date, I continue to co-organize nature play days and activity camps which invite children to come and explore nature and learn to work together and throughout these years I have continued to teach English privately and with groups. Language is such an intrinsic part of our lives and our ability to integrate and form relationships. I bring all this passion and experience to my work with Interlead and enjoy being part of the team here.
