Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ewa Beach District Curriculum
The DOE, to further ensure that students are ready for post-high school life, is switching from the No Child Left Behind curriculum to the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Parents of Ewa Beach-area students can expect to see a full implementation of this change in the 2013-2014 school year. The CCSS will bring updates to English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics instruction; in each, educators will focus more on critical and analytical thinking. With less focus on memorization, the DOE also hopes to inspire students to study these subjects in a post-secondary educational setting.
Graduation requirements will also undergo a slight change for Ewa Beach-area high school students. Although core subjects will remain the same, students will be required to obtain slightly different course credit under each. Starting in 2016, graduating students must obtain one-half credit hour in Expository Writing in addition to passing ELA I and II. They must also obtain one credit hour each in Geometry and Algebra.

Ewa Beach District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
To prepare students for paths beyond high school, from careers to post-secondary education, the Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE) and Ewa Beach-area schools are committed to upholding six General Learner Outcomes (GLOs). These GLOs serve as guidelines for Ewa Beach-area schools; by keeping these outcomes at the forefront of educational policy, parents and educators have concrete results to aim toward.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Tips for Writing an Admissions Personal Statement
Most universities require students to include a personal statement with their admission materials. They do this, in part, so they can understand the student as a whole person, not just a set of test scores and grades. Students can make their personal statements stand out by following a few simple tips. Students might consider the activities or challenges that make them unique, and write about these. Students should also write formally, but allow their own writing styles to shine through. By doing so, admissions officers will get a feel for the writer’s personality. Once students have finished writing their statements, they should take the time to revise more than once, since writing often becomes clearer with each revision. Proper grammar and spelling are also important, so students might ask a teacher or tutor to check their statements for errors. With a little time and effort, every student should be able to create an essay that shines.
