Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ewa Gentry District Curriculum
The biggest difference in curriculum that Ewa Gentry-area schools will see involves Mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA). While education in these subjects has traditionally focused on memorization and task achievement, the CCSS seeks to provide instruction that is critically, analytically, and logically focused. In Math, students will demonstrate that they understand the principles behind equations. In ELA, students will be tasked with reflective writing, critical readings of all types of texts, and understanding academic vocabulary.
Because the DOE also understands that learning is becoming more and more digitally enhanced, Ewa Gentry-area schools will focus on integrating technology into the classroom and into learning materials. By implementing digital devices and services into the curriculum, the DOE hopes to prepare students for post-secondary success, remove outdated print materials, and offer extra opportunities for personalized learning.

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: The Importance of Extracurricular Activities
Students can learn many new things in the classroom, but learning doesn’t have to stop when the school bell rings. Extracurricular activities are a great way for students to learn more about the subjects that interest them -- and to connect with others who share the same passions. These activities, often sponsored by schools or community organizations, are also beneficial in another important way. Colleges look for applicants who are well-rounded, show a personal interest in learning, and put time and effort into following their interests. Being able to include extracurricular activities on a college application often makes a candidate stand out as a student who wants to learn.
