This is who we are.

Mission Statement

"To provide candidates of standardised tests, such as the GRE, GMAT, TOEFL and IELTS, proficient and affordable preparation tuition, using a continuously improved methodology that capitalises on students' strengths to rectify their weaknesses."


Gmatlessons is an integral part of Proficiency Centre. Proficiency Centre was established 25 years ago by three dedicated educators, John Meremetidis, Helen Avramidou and Maria Stamigou, to provide specialised tuition to candidates of standardised tests such as the GRE, GMAT, TOEFL and IELTS. Since then we have helped thousands of students achieve their goals. Today, many of our former students hold positions through which they contribute to the shaping of the world's future.


We have always placed a high priority on specialised tuition without disregarding the core values inherent in the teaching profession. A genuine interest in every student has been our compass in the quest for the ideal teaching methodology, which will be consistently effective but at the same time individually oriented. Though we have covered much ground, we refuse to rest on our laurels, but keep striving towards a continually revised goal. As Constantine Cavafy wrote in his poem, Ithaca, "When you set sail for Ithaca, wish for the road to be long, full of adventures, full of knowledge."
