Cultural Statement

Galileo is a community of awesome individuals who are passionate in ensuring excellence among kids through fun, learning experiences.

Academic Council of Advisers

The Galileo Academic Council of Advisers is composed of highly-respected and renowned academicians, educators, consultants, professionals, education researchers and writers in math, science, psychology and other fields. All have received prestigious citations such as the Carlos Palanca Memorial Award for Literature and the Metrobank Outstanding Teachers awards. They are highly esteemed in local academic circles including the Department of Education, the University of the Philippines, the Ateneo de Manila University, as well as in regional and international institutions such as Harvard University, UNICEF, and the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization.

The Galileo Academic Council of Advisers is responsible for researching, formulating, and continuously improving the appropriate instructional approaches based on latest scientific findings on education, such as the Galileo Telescopic Method. Most importantly, they are involved with the Galileo Enrichment Learning Program not just as a vocation but as a passion to uplift the country through world-class education, starting with young Filipinos.

Telescopic Approach to Learning

galileo-telescope

Galileo believes that the most important treasure parents can give to their children, especially in this age of information technology is education – the best education possible. And in this highly competitive global economy, the most vital and sought-after skills and competencies are in Math and English. The founders of Galileo believe that they have a serious stake and obligation in preparing the Filipino kids in these core subjects to successfully contend in the world economy for the country to even survive.

Sadly, schools may not be adequate to address the special individual learning needs of today’s children. Galileo was specifically established to fill this education gap.

The Galileo approach to learning is uniquely kid-friendly. This stems from its belief that each and every child has his own innate potential, that he learns differently and therefore has unique individual needs. Hence, teaching must first FIND the specific needs and situation of every individual kid and FOCUS on that child, not treating him as just one of the herd. This is the same method that guided one of greatest math and science geniuses of all time, Galileo Galilei, to invent the telescope.

With this invention, he was able to FIND and FOCUS on specific heavenly bodies and stars from the millions of galaxies in the vast universe. By the same principle, the Galileo Telescopic Method FOCUSES and concentrates on each child, FINDS his special learning needs and tailor-fits and trains the learning program for that specific child. With this, the Galileo Enrichment Program is able to FIND the genius and DISCOVER the “star” in every child.

Mathematics as Problem-Solving
The ability to apply mathematical skills confidently and meaningfully to unfamiliar situations is the goal of mathematics instruction.

Mathematics as Communication
Reading, writing, modeling, drawing and discussing are all important tools in helping children to explore, convey and clarify mathematical concepts and ideas.

Mathematics as Reasoning
Giving children opportunities to analyze, draw conclusions, and justify their thinking helps them gain a sense of self-reliance and confidence in their mathematical abilities and helps them see that mathematics makes sense.

Mathematics as Connections
Helping children see how concepts and ideas in one area of math relate to other areas of math, other subject areas, and their everyday lives foster an appreciation of the usefulness of mathematics.
