About Greek Group Tutoring
GGT (Greek Group Tutoring) is a privately run after-school enrichment program that focuses on teaching the Greek language, culture, heritage, and traditions to children ages 5 through 15. Its 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. The teaching staff is comprised of Greek native speakers who hold degrees in education with years of experience teaching Greek to young children. The faculty strives to provide diversified and effective instruction to students of all abilities while nurturing a love of the Hellenic ideals, and fostering friendship among its students and GGT families. The GGT board consists of parent volunteers who collaborate with teachers to develop child-centered enrichment activities and events to supplement the curriculum and to expand the students’ interests, knowledge, and pride in learning about the Greek heritage and culture. Listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills are developed through lessons in geography, history, music, art and mythology.
GGT offers classes Kindergarten through grade six. The Papaloizos curriculum, Greek123 is the foundation of the program which is supplemented by additional resources, learning strategies, cultural activities, and extra-curricular events. Instructional strategies target listening, speaking, reading and writing skills through whole and small group activities, visual and auditory approaches, hands-on activities, and interactive learning. Students may continue their studies beyond grade six through the post-graduate program, THELO.
