Learn Greek With Us
GGT’s educational mission is to provide an inclusive learning environment that
embraces, demonstrates, and instills the values of the Greek language, history, culture and traditions. Its curriculum is designed to expand our students’ interests, knowledge, and pride in learning about the Greek heritage and culture while perpetuating an
understanding and respect of Hellenic ideals.
Our Educational Philosophy
GGT’s educational philosophy embraces the belief that all children are capable of
learning, and entitled to educational opportunities where curriculum is student-driven, meaningful, and motivating. Students access skills through direct and differentiated instruction, hands-on activities, and interactive lessons that target listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills.
GGT's curriculum is based on the program, Greek123 which was founded by Theodore C. Papaloizos Ph. D., and is used by individuals, teachers, schools, and universities throughout the world. It integrates the use of traditional teaching methods with technology and interactive activities to teach Greek as a second language.
GG Tutoring began with a group of parents who had a vision. That vision was to reshape the Greek School experience into a program that was current, engaging, and inclusive while fostering a sense of community and family. It was a vision to create a progressive school whose management, curriculum, and path would always put the children’s needs first.
Passionate about fostering a cultural education for their children, this group of parents formed a board in 2017 and became Incorporated as Greek Group Tutoring, LLC. The board works collaboratively with our talented faculty, to educate and expand the minds of our children, and to instill in them a deep-seeded sense of pride and love of their Greek heritage and background.
Still in its infancy, GGT has flourished under the leadership of parent and community volunteers, and experienced and caring teachers. We have earned an excellent reputation as a progressive Greek school program with a whole child approach to learning that provides meaningful opportunities to children to experience and embrace our Greek language, culture, and history. Through a community-based setting of teachers, families, and friends, our children’s lives are enriched and fostered through classroom instruction, extra-curricular educational activities, and social and philanthropic events that teach and reinforce the values, traditions and culture of our Greek heritage. Together, as a community, GGT will persist and achieve the goal of perpetuating the Hellenic ideals and beloved heritage.
What Parents Have to Say
I am so grateful to the teachers and parents who stepped up and offer to our kids the opportunity to learn Greek in such a supportive environment. The teachers and Mrs. Elaine helped so much my older one to get more comfortable with her classmates and classroom participation. Her Greek reading and writing skills have improved considerably without feeling any pressure from the school. My younger one is in kindergarten and just loves her teacher and is looking forward to her class every time! The parents involved in the school go way and beyond in organizing activities and gathering for the kids and their families (the parties are always very fun!) and bringing aboard new teachers when needed. It is amazing how smoothly everything runs within just a couple of years from the start date of GGT. I am so thankful for all the hard work they put into this! They exceeded every expectation!"
