Alex has been an ELICOS/EAL trainer for over 25 years, with teaching experience both in Australia and Greece. Greece is the country where her parents come from, and she is very grateful of the land of Gods; because Greece was the place that she lived for over 10 years and she was able to open her own language school and teach English as an Additional Language to students of all ages. Success? Yes, SUCCESS is her nickname.
Whatever classes she took, she was able to succeed and students always asked to be in her class. Students never wanted to leave Alex. “Alex is our friend, our tutor, our trainer, our mother, our sister… Alex is the person who shows understanding and is always there to assist us in every way”; this is what students used to say and still do.
Alex holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree and a Diploma in Education from La Trobe University. She has a Major in TESOL and Modern Greek. After she graduated from La Trobe University, she was able to get a job at La Trobe Language Centre teaching EAL/ELICOS to adults and from then on she has been taking-off! She also holds a Certificate IV in TAE.
For many years she has been working as an EAL/ELICOS trainer and assessor to adults and in the last three years she has been rewarded the title of EAL Coordinator as well.
Alex motivates students to explore the worlds around them, carefully guides them through necessary and diverse situations to formulate questions and develop strategies with which to answer those questions, offering freedom in thought processes and learning.
